Chaos Effects

Post by CelticWerewolf » Thu Sep 02, 2021 11:02 am

In the effects list in the rulebook it states:

Chaos: Denotes an effect driven by Chaotic magics. Can only be defended against by abilities or effects that explicitly work against Chaos.

Does this just mean any spell/effect that has the word "chaos" in it? I wanted to confirm that this applies to Dodge or Parry. A strict reading of the rules says "yes", but I think some people instincts might say "no", so I wanted to check.

I am just assuming that things like chaos bolts or skills with the elemental keyword chaos exist.

If an adversary swings a weapon and states "Chaos, Pierce", would the correct interpretation be that this can not be parried?

If a chaos bolt (does this exist, who knows) gets thrown, can it be avoided with Dodge?

Your reading of the rules is correct. If a call or tag comes with the chaos keyword, the only way to resist that using and ability is with an ability that explicitly states it works against chaos.

As you can probably surmise it is meant to be a scary thing.
