Default Question about Medicine bag (pyramid last issue)

hi

I was reading about the medicine bag ability detailed in pyramid 3/122 (all good things)...

It seems like you can grant a bonus to a roll that you decided whenever you create the bag, but the attendant new enhancement (Affliction - task modifier) says that you need to pick the type of roll it affects when you buy the ability. In the actual description it sounds like you can make it up when you create the bag, but i the side bar with the explanation of the mechanics looks like you have to decide at the time of the buying the ability and it always remains the same.

what am i missing here ? Do you need to specify the type of roll you can affect when you create the power and it always stays that way or can you determine that at the time when you grant the bonus?

According to the author you have to decide when you purchase the ability.
So basically the Crusader with the ability can hand out multiple bags to different people but they all do the same thing.
You could however buy extra bags as alternate abilities.

okay thank you for that direct and helpful answer. I think that makes sense.

Your welcome. I had to ask too, the article was a little confusing, mostly because of that bit after the Notes:
"Notes: Medicine Bag varies with the task being assigned: "
Amazing the difference a few words can make.
