Bonus Momentum

posted Jun 22, 2018 12:08:53 by Shran
I have a rules question: Several talents give you bonus Momentum. In the new Command Division Supplement, several talents like "Plan of Action" say "Bonus Momentum cannot be saved into the group pool." Is this a general rule about bonus Momentum or only specific to the particular talent?

There are a number of existing tasks and talents that seem to work the same way. The Interrogation talent is one example.

Actually, check p83 of the rulebook: "Bonus Momentum cannot be saved — if it is not used, it is lost."

And remember that Bonus Momentum is not the same as the spare Momentum generated by overly-successful die rolls :)

This is a reminder of a general rule, given out to ensure that people remember that bonus Momentum (extras granted by talents, or things like the Versatile X quality) cannot be saved into the group pool.
