RPG Information (FFG) Edit

Void Points is a Attribute which represents a resource that allows characters to tip the scales in their favor, tapping into their strength of character to persevere in situations that seem insurmountable. Void points are gained through facing adversity, for without struggle, there can be no triumph. [1]

RPG Information (AEG) Edit

The element of Void represented the character inherent understanding of the elements, as well as his ability to draw upon the harmony between all elements to achieve greatness. Void points were used to enhance the results of the character, and were recovered through rest, usually sleeping. Meditation and Tea Ceremony also allowed the character to recover Void Points. A number of advantages, techniques, kata, and kiho required Void Point expenditure. [2]
