The Shanker "May target you or another person with one of the following statuses: Blessed, Protected, Resistant, or Warded"

 

I checked the rules, and there doesn't seem to be an entry for 'Warded'. 'Protected' seems to be what 'Warded' used to be.

The Bound Servant is still listed as having Standard skill and Physical immunity. Is this intentional?

I'm debating whether to change this or not. I sort of like having the Bound Servant be weak for balance sake. Thoughts?

I agree. Making the bound servant a power role basically gives Gladwell a servant as powerful as the darkside blademaster, and probably more powerful considering the servant would have the first strike. Gladwell could easily dispose of his enemies that way.
