ENTRY EDGES

These edges are another way to gain access to a Talent Tree. When you take the Entry Edge you gain access to the associated Talent Tree. If you already have access to the Talent Tree, you are still free to choose the Entry Edge as one of your advancements. If several Talent Trees are listed, you choose 1 of them at the time you take the Entry Edge.

These Edges are typically less powerful than the Talents they give access to, but work in such a way that they may work with those Talents.

Many rely upon the card dealt for initiative. If not in combat, still flip a card to see if you get the benefits.
