Ability Prefixes

Some keyworded abilities may have a prefix in front of it's name, revealing in what zone that ability is valid. Abilities that do have prefixes are only valid in that zone and no other. If an ability lacks a prefix it is due to it either being valid everywhere or it having qualities built in that are already limiting it's scope.

The prefixes are:

  • Attacking - this ability is only valid while the creature is in an attacker.
  • Defending - ability is only valid while the creature is defending.
  • Kingdom - this ability is only valid while the creature is in the Kingdom.

Prefixes are not a part of the ability names.
