Chapter 10 

Conditions

Conditions There are many conditions that can affect a character. If a character is under the effect of more than four conditions, you can view the complete list affecting that character by clicking on any button labeled CONDITIONS. Conditions preceded by a hollow diamond are temporary and will wear off over time. Conditions preceded by a solid diamond are permanent, and can only be removed by some other means.

Condition names in RED denotes that this condition is cumulative. If a condition is cumulative, then the effect of that condition can be increased by casting spells repeatedly. Example: Casting regeneration on a character twice will give them twice as much regenerative power than just once

Other conditions that are not cumulative can still be cast multiple times to increase the duration of the effect, even though the intensity will not change. Example: Casting "Protection From Chemicals" twice will double the duration of the effect.

NOTE: You may hold down the Ctrl (Control) key while clicking on any CONDITIONS button to display the conditions of all characters in the party at once.

You will notice as your characters suffer from any bad conditions that small icons may appear to the right of their names. This is just a reminder to let you know that your character is suffering from a specific type of condition and that you may want to take corrective action.
