(Minor – Clarified): Damage Nomenclature & Tags

The following issue causes no mechanical issues, however, we’ve had enough individuals bring up a discrepancy between our use of the following tags and how they’re actually portrayed on cards. In fact, not all cards even had this issue which tells us that this was a consistency problem on our end. For this reason, on future reprints and content, we’ll be updating the words “Physical Damage”, “Magic Damage”,  “Irreducible Damage”, and “To The Roll” on all cards to reflect the tags in the tag section. Meaning, a card that said, “Add +2 physical Damage.” would now say “Add +2 PHYSICAL DMG“.

This clarification also trickles down into the following Tags. They have been updated to say the following:

  • +(x) PHYSICAL DMG:
    This tag is used to denote Physical Damage. See Damage Types Pg. 44.
  • +(x) IRREDUCIBLE DMG:
    This tag is used to denote Irreducible Damage. See Damage Types Pg. 44.
  • +(x) MAGIC DMG:
    This tag is used to denote Magic Damage. See Damage Types Pg. 44.
  • +(x) TO THE ATK ROLL:
    This tag is used anytime an Ability or Value modifies an Attack roll during the “Roll to Hit” step of an Attack.
