Replacing all sustain options in powers with skill checks

If you don’t have a power that says “SUSTAIN” anywhere in it, just ignore this for now! If you have selected a power with an optional sustain condition please read the rest below and come see me about it! Thanks.

Powers will no longer require actions such as Standard, Minor or Move to remain in effect. Instead, sustains will require a comparable skill check, the phase of which will occur at the end of every turn.

New Turn order:

  1. Take Ongoing Damage
  2. Take Actions
  3. Roll Sustains
  4. Roll Save Checks

For example, where a power might say:

“Sustain Minor” you might now be asked to replace it with “Sustain: Arcana 10+”
You would roll Arcana check at the end of your turn and if you sucessfully rolled a 10 or greater, your power would remain in effect. You can now use the free minor action to do other things like hit people, or cast more spells instead.
