I prefer Yoda's version, that stays mostly faithful to the original. Although *most* of the abilities in Leader are for buffing others, I like that 'charge' is something cool for me, but it's still 'leadery' in that I run in to the fight and (hopefully) others follow. These suggestions of giving combat boosts to other characters are probably more mechanically effective in a fight, but they don't feel as cinematic and cool to me. Also, it loses the DT 'lend someone your politics score' talent (which is on my XP shopping list), and makes the whole tree much more combat focused, which makes it feel *more* like an arch-militant variant.

The leader has been updated with our revised thinking on Charge!.

I think we're at the point of calling the Leader Talents finished (barring edits for clarity and uniformity).

Anyone got any more thoughts before we make the call?

Friends in High Places is now no longer linked to your Politics skill and provides a flat increase in IP. The IP are treated as normal and no longer expire at the end of the downtime.

The Line Must Be Drawn Here has been changed so that the upgrade gives Flame Fear, not Global Fear.

Flame fear? Like, I'm so scary I set them on fire?

For historical reasons we have chosen not to correct, flame means 'spray' and doesn't actually imply a damage call!

I understand the use of the Fear in the leader talents but is Rally really good enough to have an entire talent dedicated to it? It doesn't seem like rally has much use beyond those you get from leadership.
