    Traps are tricky. I like springing them on my players, then having them roll to avoid or get out of trouble. This typically calls for some attribute roll. (Power to climb, agility to pull hand back,...

    I have suspicion that bending, as portrayed in the series, is often closer to Range and Cover rules rather than exclusively Fight!. The thing is, bending is a time consuming activity,...

    You are on the right track Gunner6. However, some comments:

    I think you are underestimating elemental VA ratings. Looking to the magic burner, or the BWG spell list, you'll quickly find...

    Though the conclusion runs contrary to my expectations, the ruling is quite straight forward. Deadly Precision only substitutes the exponent, ie numbers, of the Power rating-- not the shading.

    As noted in my first post, either option is fine. My preference would be a -wise, but a trait can work excellently. My line of reasoning runs as follows:

    I love wises, so I would go with that. However, could you tell us about the setting? Traits earn artha, and in many ways tell a lot more about the character than skills do. The Almanac skill likewise...
