True to character however, will need to draft her with Raelin/etc.

Ignoring fragility, how do we like the points to power ratio?

Also, I took a lot of liberty with the wording on power 1. Do we like the functional shift?

Any or all adjacent figures are also affected by the attack. They each roll defense dice separately.
Add 3 attack dice to the attack.

To me, it seems out of place that two of the powers direct the player while this one is directed at the figure. What about

CURSED SWORD OF POWER
When attacking an adjacent figure with a normal attack, you may choose either of both of the following:
Any or all adjacent figures are also affected by the attack. Each figure rolls defense dice separately.
Add 3 dice to the attack.
After the attack, Nimue receives a wound for each option chosen.

And it saves some words. :thumbsup:

Doesnt seem to crazy. The language seems direct, but I'm still learning scape legalism lol. I do appreciate the space that it saves.

Query
 
Why not "one or more of the following"?

~Dysole, trying to simplify

English preferences.

Both 'more' and 'all' imply more than two options; whereas 'both' clearly indicates there are exactly two. (See what I did there? :D )

Didn't know if Whirlwind Assault set the precedent

I've always been in favor of improving language whenever possible, but it is not a deal-breaker.

I think Nimue needs to mentioned somewhere in the beginning part of the power text
