Chaos Hounds, Travar

Post by Slimcreeper » Sun Nov 10, 2019 2:10 am

The Spell Backlash (9) ability says it works if the spell doesn't beat the ability's Step, but the step is less than the creature's Mystic Defense. Is the (9) added to an attribute? Or is it rolled?

spell backlash being lower than mystic defence makes sense (and matches the other example of the ability i looked up). if you fail by a little, you just fail. if you fail by more, it gets reflected.

if it were higher, then practically speaking it would replace mystic defence, which would seem odd...

I agree, they have a nice twist.
