Also for note when reading the Improved akills, assume you will be able to use the older version of the skill as well as the newer version of the skill unless it is not possible by the wording of the new skill. ex. if the new skill says you may spend a LP to throw for "X Magic" and the old skill says you may throw "Magic Fear".. you may choose to do either with a LP (But not both with a single LP).

You know already that I think your "perk" idea is cool, but I still thought I should vote. 'Course, like we joked about before, there's always gonna be someone who hates them because they don't "make it easier for them to win as a character" by upping raw damage output.

Still, I support it. I always thought we should make characters abilities more "useful" by expanding upon the established rather than just making them crazy killing machines.

It's long been known I'm not a super huge fan of the advanced rules because it takes away form the premise of why FH was created in the first place.

I'll go with the flow if they are even implemented, but make certain this are balanced and all the cheesy loop holes are fixed way before they are brought into the game.
