The Maddening Conclusion

Thanks, everyone, for the interesting ideas and discussion yesterday — it was very helpful!

What I've finally decided to go with, is a combination of the "Sanity as Skill Check" and "Classic OGL (CoC-style) Sanity" models. Sanity will still be tracked as a 1-100 value, but the actual sanity check will follow the d20 "roll over" model. The character sheet will have a "sanity table" to make these values easy to track, something like this:

Gneech's CoC d20 Sanity Table

I'm still looking at ways to integrate sanity with the SWSE condition track; I'm thinking that perhaps blowing a SAN check by more than your Sanity Threshold will move you down -1 step on the condition track. Losing more SAN than your Sanity Threshold, besides putting you in danger of temporary insanity, will also move you down -1 step on the condition track.

Thanks again for the help! Even suggestions that I ended up not using, were a big help in sorting out my thoughts.

When you gain a rank in Knowledge (Mythos), your maximum SAN goes down by 5 points. Thus, if you have 6 ranks in Knowledge (Mythos), your maximum SAN becomes 70. Learning the dread secrets of reality does irrevocable damage to your mind!

Might your loss of sanity CAUSE you to gain Knowledge Mythos?

Nope, it's the other way 'round. The main way you gain Mythos Knowledge is reading horrible tomes, but as they have a tendency to drain your SAN, it's hard to tell which caused the other.
