Ordalia Event Cards

Event cards are the other main type of cards used in Ordalia. Each Event card represents the use of a specific Skill or spell, allowing Characters to use some special abilities to boost their characteristics and/or Maneuvers, or to affect the opponents or themselves in some other way.
Event cards can never be played alone, but always before the Maneuver card for that combat round. Most Event cards have prerequisites stating when they can be used,and many cards define some conditions that have to be met so that the card has its full effect (like hitting the opponent, or not being hit instead). Since Events are played before the Manouver, it is possible to play them unsuccessfully, so it is important to choose the right time and the right Maneuver to use with them.
The use of Event cards makes the result of matching Maneuvers unpredictable, as Events can sometimes turn a dangerous situation into an opportunity for a killing strike.
