Mindlock is basically your defence against being directly manipulated by your fellow horrors, for example if someone chooses to have mind control be one of their character's powers and then they try to use it on you, having a high mindlock stat means first they would have to do things like distract you and tire you out to use their manipulation, and that you would have an easier time breaking free.

Perhaps a few more then five points for stats might be a good idea. As it is, you can be average in everything, and statdumping doesn't seem like a good idea.

It seems like a fun idea, though.

I tend to lean on the DMing idea that if you want to be better at something it requires giving up something else, though if other people think I should change it I will...

It's player-friendlier to let people be good at one thing from the get-go, and then let the other things come at an expense, at least in my experience. On the other hand, I kind of like just having 5 points and all stats being sort of important. Keep it at 5, I say.

I don't think you should change it, so long as there are (difficult) ways to get around any weaknesses you give youself at the start.

Since there are already magic artifacts for summoning I will probably add more artifacts that do other things as the game goes on... With a dice roll of course, which may or may not carry the risk of getting your cultists killed before you've been summoned...

[5] Big Dog attempts to whisper into the minds of mortals, and they love his harmonious voice. A large group forms to try to bring this wondrous creature to their world (+200 cultists of Big Dog).
