Empowered Magic/Spells for d20 Variant

     ONLY Applicable to the Incarna d20 Variant      

Empowered Magic removes the “check each round” aspect of spells. Once a spell save is failed, the primary effects fail for the duration. Because the D20 normal rest and recovery times have a character regain their spells so rapidly, magic was nerfed so that many spells that [in the past] used to be fail once/failed for the duration are now fail once/re-check each round. This is not the case with the “Gritty Realism” approach for Incarna.
