haha well, I suppose he'll still teleport, unless he is precisely, down to the smallest measurement, at the very most northern tip of the world.

3-yards only, -65%;
Costs Fatigue 1, -5%;
Uses per day 4, -20%;
Takes Recharge 5 seconds, -10%]
Seems OK. The [5 nest to Warp in the first line is just a typo? Note that, as Bill pointed out earlier, the actual range limit for a (2,1) yard teleport is close to 2.25 yards.

It won't be easy getting there and staying there. I would not have a problem with saying his Warp would not work in that case, though. Being at the South Pole presents its own difficulties, but (especially with this write-up) I'd be fine with allowing him to Warp anywhere within range from that point.

He'd have gotten away with it if it weren't for you, you meddling kid.

The 5 is the effective cost for the ability after all the modifiers.

I understand that in a straight line it is closer to 2.25 yards, but I like to think of it as moving through "teleportation space" with 3 yards of movement, just to illustrate the "L"-ness of it all. :)

This is also for a fantasy game, so I won't dwell too much on south/north pole irregularities, especially so because this is magic.

^See this is how I read it, as a 1-2-over, where over also = facing change. So if it's 1-2-over only in the direction he's facing... that's a big difference from if it's 1-2-over in any direction (which is pretty pointless).
