In a continuation from episode 197, we talk about layers and how effects interact using them. We also talk a bit about dependencies, and reference too many moons (Blood Moon, Bad Moon, Imprisoned in the Moon, etc)
We take an episode to get caught up on e-mails, and with the help of Nicolette Apraez, L2 from Wiscons (you’ll get it soon), we are able to knock out a whopping 12 e-mails in one short, action packed hour! We cover questions from all corners of policy and the rules.

CJ’s cats, as cardified by Josh Carr:
The boys are back in town with the second part of their two-part series on layers! This time, they cover the more complicated aspects of layers including dependencies and what happens when you remove an ability after it’s already done its thing.
Will you learn a lot from this episode? It depends! (An ol’ layer joke for you)
Copy the URL to this one down! Try to control your excitement! Text all of your friends who are rules-loving types and tell them to listen to our very special episode on layers (Or, “Interaction of Continuous Effects”). Never heard of layers? Color us impressed! Part of the greatness of layers is their ability to reach intuitive results without the players needing to think about them. It’s a powerful tool, and it’s tough sometimes to even see where the layers are working.
As is characteristic of all our episodes, we set out to educate you, the listener, on all the basics of layers. Is there anything you’d like us to modify about this episode? Did we say something counter to what you’d expect? This episode is all about the basics (What someone going for L1 would need to know) and next episode we switch it up with the advanced stuff.
