The replacement for Powerhour is called the Guaranteed Gain System
(GGS). Nowadays in UO, whenever you succeed in a skill you have the
potential for skill gain. After a period of time, if every skill
gain possibility is failed, GGS forces a minimal skill gain. The
higher your current skill, the longer the period of time between
forced skill point gains.
