Drain Effects and you: A clarification

Not so much of an update but a clarification.  We will also go over this at opening ceremonies in April.  I'm sure it's fine.

Drain effects last until you take a full combat reset or until the drain effect is removed by some other effect (Humorism is awesome for that).  Once the Drain effect ends all abilities are restored to where they previously were.

Drain effects will almost always target specific abilities/items such as Drain Brutality, Drain Focus, Drain Fatigue, and so on.  Drain can however get much more general with things like Drain Trait or Drain Magic.

Then there is the dreaded Drain All.  It is as bad as it sounds however Non-Combat/Non-Magic skills are not impacted by a Drain All.  Healers can still heal.  Trackers can still track.  You can still use basic weapons, production, shields, armor, and so on.  I'm not saying that "Drain Academia" or "Drain base Weapons" won't ever be a thing but if it is, we will target that specifically, likely won't be in combat, and make sure you know what happened.

Is that what they call "foreshadowing"?  🙂

Also, Errata updated.
