comment Should Savage World Allies be made as Wild Cards?
Ah okay. Looks like they talked about this in two different sections of the book.

comment Should Savage World Allies be made as Wild Cards?
Sure, that was just a small piece of advice and I'm glad you incorporated it. However, I also notice that you say that "the advice in the core rules is that allied Extras should be given to players to control, whilst Wild Cards are retained by the GM". The discussion of allies (pg. 125 in my hard copy SWD) just talks about giving control of allies to the players without distinguishing between Extras and Wild Cards. I think the intention is that both should be given to PCs.

comment Is this a balanced power + trapping?
@shaydwyrm Increasing the Power Point cost does solve one of my concerns. I think boosting one of two combat traits with a success and both with a raise would be fair if there was some other limitation. Adept already limits the power to yourself when you cast it as a free action so whether or not that is a drawback depends on whether or not you were ever planning on casting it on others. Bumping it up to 4 PP would make it balanced I think as it's basically 2 or 3 castings done in one action.

@shaydwyrm You had asked if it was a "balanced trapping" so that's why I talked about it as an addon rather than a replacement power. Nonetheless, I think my advice still stands and it would be better if the net result of a changed boost/lower trait matched the effectiveness of the core power with a core trapping.

@Phil In combat, you are under more time pressure than out of combat where there often aren't any consequences to taking another "round". For that reason, I think that boosting a combat trait, especially one tied to a derived statistic, is somewhat better than boosting a non-combat trait.

Using Intelligence and Wisdom checks to provide hints on what spells to prepare sounds like a really awesome idea!
