I've just stumbled across a line in the BGB that I hadn't previously noticed and I wanted some views; this may well have been covered in an earlier thread so apologies if that's the case.
Pg 89 Overcoming POW;
"Any time a magic spell affects a living target the caster must overcome the target's POW or power points in a resistance roll. Each spell description will designate which value is used".
If a Blast spell is used against a living target does this mean a resistance roll is required? If so, looking at the text the target is also entitled to a Dodge as well. In the description for the spell no mention is made of a resistance roll, either POW or points so does it not apply?
That would make a total of three seperate rolls for a Blast which seems a little excessive.
The wording of some of the rules is the BGB has given me problems in the past so any clarification is gratefully received.
