I'm kinda lost about Sage Transformation... I assume that when it reads: "first effect listed", it refers to the Diversified Second Stage abilities, but it's not very clear if that's actually the case. But the thing that confuses me the most is: "You gain one additional Diversified Second Stage effect. This effect can not be changed, but it can be different from that chosen in Diversified Second Stage" So what happens if I choose the same Diversified Second Stage? Double the effects? --FrickyDiBoop (talk) 05:54, 21 March 2022 (MDT)

The first effect listed is in reference to the first listed bullet of Sage Transformation itself (the increased maximum hit point decrease), as you are only able to gain one of the effects listed below it. Choosing a Diversified Second Stage effect a second time grants its effects twice.--Ref3rence (talk) 21:11, 21 March 2022 (MDT)
Oh, I see! Mind if I reword it? Although, it's valid as is, so it doesn't really matter. --FrickyDiBoop (talk) 00:51, 22 March 2022 (MDT)
If you feel it needs it, go for it!--Ref3rence (talk) 11:47, 22 March 2022 (MDT)

Does Earth's curse reduce the amount of black chakra gained when using it's second effect on maintaining the curse mark?--Johnjustjohn (talk) 12:51, 3 February 2023 (MST)

RAW, it would since you gain black chakra equal to maximum hit points lost. However, it's within the realm of RAI (and probably balance) for a DM to decide that it doesn't.--Ref3rence (talk) 15:52, 3 February 2023 (MST)
Thanks for answering.--Johnjustjohn (talk) 18:12, 3 February 2023 (MST)

Should Cursed Howl be changed since affinity does not add damage dice anymore? Sugar rush (talk) 19:30, 6 July 2023 (MDT)

Thanks for catching that, should be fixed now.--Ref3rence (talk) 20:55, 6 July 2023 (MDT)

I could use some help understanding how expending black chakra is supposed to work. It says, "You can spend black chakra as if it were normal chakra, but if you choose to do so you must spend an equal number of normal and black chakra". What I think this means basically, using Rasengan's cost as an example, a player spends 5 black chakra and 5 normal chakra to fulfill the cost. My question is how does this work for jutsu with an uneven chakra cost? --SUPERMECHA (talk) 22:51, 29 December 2023 (MST)

You would just cover the remainder with normal chakra when you can't split the cost between the two chakra pools. --Windslinger8 (talk) 01:15, 30 December 2023 (MST)
