Minor Rules Update:
We are replacing the "Enslave" Effect Call by renaming it "Enthrall." After it was pointed out to us, we realized that the older wording carried baggage that could give an incorrect impression of what our world is about.
An enslaved person still struggles and yearns to be free, resenting orders they are given. An enthralled person is deluded into thinking themselves free while following another's wishes unquestioningly.
In addition to being more sensitive to the history of our society, we believe this more accurately reflects the mental state we are attempting to encapsulate with this effect call.
