Effects

Effects define what abilities do. The level of an ability is determined first by its effect, then adjusted by any modifiers. Combat abilities are further adjusted by their triggers.

Name Level Effect Type Description
Add Burst 7 Combat, Meta

An Add Burst ability adds the Burst modifier to another ability used at the same time. You must add the "Burst" prefix before the ability's normal tagline. Note that no ability may have more than one such modifier.

Add Crit 9 Combat, Meta

An Add Crit ability changes the type of another damage ability used at the same time to Crit ("Critical") damage. Critical damage cannot be Resisted or Withstood and bypasses most defenses. If you are subdued by critical damage, you are immediately slain.

An Add Drain ability changes the type of another damage ability used at the same time to Drain damage. Drain damage simultaneously replenishes the user's hits.
