Duration of Effects

Altera uses a set of duration which are listed in the effect specific list. There are occasions where a modifier is applied to a tagline and this is to indicate that it is *different* from the standard duration of the effect.
Common duration modifiers are:

  • Instant: The effect happens and resolves instantly.
  • Combat: The effect lasts until the target exits active combat/rests to recover abilities.
  • Day: The effect lasts until the next sunrise.
  • Phase: The effect lasts the duration of the event.
  • Permanent: The effect cannot be removed or cancelled.
