Changed Rules

  • Edges
    • Wizard: Requirements remain the same. However the edge changes the backlash effect from 2d6 damage to simply loosing access to the power until the end of combat. The player may spend a benny to negate this effect.
    • Power Surge: Requirements remain the same. When dealt a Joker the player is immune from Backlash effects, failure, and their powers automatically succeed this round. The arcane spell die is still rolled for the sake of Raises and Aces.
