Double-Stack is too easily broken when combined with things that trigger it frequently, like:
Double Stack, I meant to do that, talent version I meant to do that.

Whenever you roll a 1, you gain 10 life or deal 6 damage to an enemy seems a bit strong for an ability with no pre-reqs. Then again, I guess all that does is emulate Keen and Extra Critical on a weird reversed way, so I dunno.

Also, "My sacrifices" doesn't need the caveat: All or Nothing doesn't damage, it sets you HP to a certain amount.

Weapon Master is also probably broken, but without playtesting the Weapons, I can't say that 100% just yet. I feel the weapons are pretty broken as-is, but allowing a Gather Energy into one as a minor action the same Turn 1activate is pushing it.

I'll have to check the abilities you mentioned with double stack as well as get a new name for it.

The note on 'my sacrifices is there to make things Crystal clear.

I guess weapon master can be 1 less pip instead of 2

Actually, with Double Stack, I meant to do that & its talent means you get 2 Pip's, 5 life & 2 temp or 3 damage to an enemy... oh and it Double Stack depends on result of the triggering coin flip, doesn't have its own coin flip.

A lot of these are great concepts, and very helpful for me when I finally get a chance to sit down and work on the redo of the traits (which haven't been touched since their first beta and, right now, are not appropriately balanced).

I'll write a trait-by-trait review of them once I get time to start working on that. I still need to work out the final elements of the balance formula first before I can give comprehensive feedback.

I see... hmmm that is a shame. Through, I guess understandable. Also explains why you hadn't given traits an expansion pack, while talents have gotten 2.
