Velvet's Dart Gun turns out to be an awesome weapon. Velvet used it twice, both times on Autumn Leaf. The first time, Autumn's speed was halved. The second time, he was completely frozen and lost his next turn. Now, I'm a little iffy about continuing the 'lose a turn' aspect of this ability. The trade-off for it isn't bad--you're not going to score many kills with a 2d6 damage weapon--but losing a turn seems a bit harsh, even on a 6 only. I'll likely change it to lose movement rather than turn, just to make it a bit more balanced. Anyway, about her other abilities... Pyrelight works swimmingly; 4d6 attack is reasonably powerful, but most often non-lethal. Magic shield is a little worrisome, though. It seems to be a tad bit under-powered. Then again, 1d6 could make the difference between 3 damage and 2, and it is an ability that has no downside to rolling it every attack... I'll just leave it as is for now.
