OH, I see.. You are absolutely right. I'll go up and modify the question.

Also I agree with your assessment (that the additional effort is 2 points) but you noted that it's your opinion--and that's our problem, there doesn't seem to be a clear rule and we have two different opinions. I was kind of hoping someone knew of a clear, explicit example of this spelled out in rules, an FAQ or tutorial--it really must be quite common.

Your last comment confuses me. You have 4 advances per tier. You can use up to 1 advance for effort and 1 for edge per tier so if you keep choosing the same pool for your edge and you start out with 1 effort and 1 edge, you would end up with effort 7 and edge 7 at level 6.

comment Does the “Serpents of flame” standard sustain include the attack?
I think it's the fact that it's 2 attacks that threw me. The second being an OA, you can't take it immediately (So they can't both "repeat" as part of the sustaining action) and this got me to thinking that in this case the Sustain was more of a recharge/reset that allowed you to use the daily power and daily OA again, but I think you are right.

comment Is any rest required to level up?
You youngsters! Back in my day we had to rest and study for a month per level before we could level up--and couldn't gain any more xp until we'd finished! And we were happy to have that!
