  • Boost/Lower Trait clarification...

    Hi Clint,

    So according to the Boost/Lower Trait power description, it has the effect of adding or removing trait dice from a target.

    In the preamble to character creation the description of components of a character sheet tells us that Attributes and Skills are all collectively traits, and I assume by extension the dice you would roll for a skill check or a check against an attribute like a vigor check are all rolling some form of trait dice?

    So, does this mean that the Boost/Lower Trait power can be used to boost or lower the dice on a skill like say Shooting, just as you could lower or boost the dice on an attribute like Vigor, because they are all traits?

    Am I interpreting this correctly?

    And if that is correct, I presume that derived stats such as Toughness or Parry would also be temporarily adjusted if the trait they relied upon is adjusted?

    Thank you.
