So, I have in mind for my game something akin to the STAB bonus in Pokemon. For those unaware, STAB was where if a Pokemon used an attack of it's own type (element) it would get a damage boost.

I'm looking to do something like that, because each actor in my game will have an innate resistance and weakness to a certain element. It's easy enough to have the Hero have a lightning element resistance and earth element weakness through the traits option, just by adjusting the element rate as needed. As far as I know, there is no way to do anything like that for attack damage tied into a skill. 

So the same hero as previously mentioned learns Lightning Bolt, obviously of Lightning Element. It does 100 damage (just for ease of example, it does 100 damage flat) Since the Hero has a Lightning element innately, he would do say...15% more damage with it, thus 115 damage total. Now if Joe got Lightning Bolt, and he had an innate Fire element, he would only do the 100 damage.

While it would be interesting to have the attacks of there weak element do less damage (IE, the Hero uses Rock Slide, which also does 100 damage. Since he's weak with and to Earth, he only does 85 damage) that's not really required, so if that greatly complicates anything, that feature would not be required, but certainly appreciated.

I took a quick look for anything like what I'm requesting, but I didn't see anything, but if such a thing does exist, a link would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

Cheers

Clearly I didn't do a good enough job of looking. Thank you very much.

my game has distinct areas where travel through what are known as "battle stations" these are more or less areas to explore and fight. occasionally, you'll stumble across secret rooms with sidequests ready to be taken. this area is in the high school attic of all places... but how do ya get there is the question.

So this flat Earther named Mike Hughes build his own rocket to prove that the Earth was flat. But on liftoff he still had the ladder he climbed up to the rocket laying against it. Needless to say things didn't go as planned.
