Katana: This weapon gains: Purity of the Blade; once per game session you may make an increased damage roll of +1K1. This replaces the Special Weapon Rule listed in 4th Edition.

When making a Skill, Trait, Ring, or Spell Casting Roll and more than half
of the rolled dice result in 1’s, a Mishap occurs. This means something bad
happened to really screw things up. It could be that outside forces
intervened or simply that the character fouled up whatever he was trying to
accomplish so horribly that he made things worse. Keep in mind that it is
possible to have a Mishap and still succeed at the roll. Sometimes too much
success can be bad (e.g., stabbing through your enemy and your ally behind
him). The exact results of Mishaps are typically in the hands of the GM.

Some Mechanics will have additional changes or House Rules as follows:
