Not really much to say here since most everything is kind of self explanatory. I think the one thing that will raise eyebrows is Sheer Force In the games, Sheer Force does the following: "Removes additional effects to increase move damage". Since spells often cause damage in addition to some other effect, like pushing a creature, poisoning it, etc, it seemed obvious to have this trait dedicated to spells. However, previously I was originally going to make it so that it would be used on melee attacks. For example, let's say you're using a a flaming sword. Instead of doing the extra fire damage (in case you're fighting a creature that happens to be immune to fire), you could just negate the fire damage (that wouldn't have happened anyway) and deal more slashing damage. I realized this wouldn't have worked since being able to control a weapon's damage like that doesn't make much sense.

Either way, hopefully it doesn't prove to be broken. --MetalShadowOverlord (talk) 15:27, 31 May 2018 (MDT)
