About Keywords

Keywords appear on almost all of the cards in the game. They are located at the top of the rules text box on each card, just below the card art. Cards are not required to have keywords, but most do.

Using Keywords: The main use for keywords is to determine how you use card Powers that mention that keyword.

For example, Rath is a Pridermian fighter who has an ability called "Pyro Fist." This ability adds +1 to any damage Rath deals in a Battle - except to cards with the Fire keyword, because his Pyro Fist ability doesn't work on Fire cards.
