I suspect that this wording is meant to emphasize the change from 1.3 HM abilities, which commonly lasted for 5 days.“Each rank of Formal Magic grants a greater chance of success for all Rituals cast during that Logistics Period; Formal Magic is not ‘used up’ when a Ritual is cast, but instead (like all High Magic abilities) lasts until the next Logistics Period starts.” (P. 159)
The bolded passage makes it sound like all high magic abilities are never ‘used up.’
Also, I’m not sure why the single quotes style ‘ ‘ is used here, as the double quotes style seems more common in the book “ “.
The ability to cast a ritual within a battlemagic CoP is described in the description of the spell Circle of Power, page 122, last paragraph.Page 164: The section on investment should make clear that it applies to limited and greater circles of power, not battle magic circles.
Overall on that page, including before the section starts, the book could do a better job laying out the multiple types of circles and making it clear that battle magic circles are acceptable places to cast rituals. A chart about various types of circles and their abilities and limits would be ideal.
In the weapon section it says:Staff
This skill allows the character to wield a staff. Staff use is restricted for safety reasons, so a player using a staff
must keep both hands gripped within the middle three feet of the staff. You cannot trip people with a staff or perform
many other staff moves that would be used in real life. Thrusting with a staff is not allowed. See the “Weapons”
section for details.
The comments about being able to use it with one hand or with two-weapon-skill should really be in the staff skill section.Staffs may only be handled in the middle 3 feet. This distance should be marked off so it is easily identifiable.
You must have both hands on the staff to attack, but you may block with only one hand on the staff, or in conjunc-
tion with a short weapon for the purposes of the Two Weapons skill. Note that for safety reasons, padding may be
required on the grip section of the staff depending on how it is designed.
