Another day in Paradise
5-20 PRIMAL SOURCE
Primal Sources are power sources much like the Primal Powers (Trump, Logrus and Pattern). They can effect cross-shadow environments, and creatures of higher reality, such as Chaosians and Amberite’s.
Primal Sources usually manifest in one of three ways.
Reflection of a Primal Power – Examples would be Broken Pattern and Fixed Logrus
An Interaction of two Primal Powers – A power that allowed one to travel through an inner space and were one desired. Might be a reflection of Trump and Pattern.
Ancient power – An ancient source that existed before the Primal powers, or is a product of shadow environment. A power that enhances shape shifting by making a deal with primal beings, or the Keep of the Four Worlds as presented in the Merlin series are also examples.
Primal Sources provide their own unique set of powers and focus. The powers they provide are on par with sorcery but faster and operate slightly slower than Power Words. These powers have very specific and limited effects. They are not as adaptable as the Primal Powers. The main advantage of a Primal Source is that is open to most people without large investments in other powers or heritage. Another advantage is the ability to combine it with other Primal Powers and Sources, as well as, Sorcery and Conjuration. A spell backed by a Source is as effective as one backed by a Primal power. The main drawback is its very specific nature. A Primal Source built upon movement or travel has limitations in making an invisibility spell effective; it may have added advantage at opening a gate into lava or other such focuses.
20 BROKEN PATTERN IMPRINT
This is a reflection of the Pattern in Amber that is flawed and incomplete. The flaw may not always be obvious, even to the user once the imprint is gained but it is always there. In some way or function this Pattern will fail to work as the user intended possibly putting them in danger. The powers work much like the normal Pattern with that flaw always haunting the results.

20 FIXED LOGRUS (REQUIRES 15 SHAPE SHIFT)
The fixed Logrus is a manifestation of a part of the Logrus. The Primal Chaos of the Logrus has at times left incomplete, limited sections of itself in shadow. Each of these sections usually represents a specific aspect of the Logrus, such as specific emotions, places or beings. The Fixed Logrus can duplicate some of the abilities of the Logrus; however, these abilities are flawed. The flaw consist of the overriding aspect that Fixed Logrus possesses. For example – A Fixed Logrus based on anger influences Black Threads, warping local conditions into angry reflections, even calling up the sign of that particular Fixed Logrus would fill the character with rage. All these are covered under Logrus Mastery.
