-Weapon and Armor Enchantments,​ Rituals, Augments, and Magic Gear include [[extra effect|Extra Effect]] text entries. These provide bonus abilities you can use, either in scenarios or during the narrative portion of the game.

 Some Extra Effects are very specific in their mechanical function when used within scenarios. Others are much more open-ended, expected to be used primarily in the narrative portion of the game. For the latter, the DM will determine if and how to apply these when used within a scenario. This may result in the use of Improvisation or other specific bonuses if a DM decides to allow it. Players should be specific in how they'​re intending to apply such an Extra Effect. The DM may deny any in-scenario use of Extra Effects that do not detail their mechanical effects in order to avoid confusion and keep the game moving along. Some Extra Effects are very specific in their mechanical function when used within scenarios.
