Default Twin prism clarification.

Hello there fellow seers, I have a question regarding twin (or triplet) prisms. When a prism diverts power to another prism it becomes twin linked, that's pretty easy to get. In 4th they were very black and white, but now prisms scatter because all templates scatter, a move I wasn't happy with, but what ever. Does the twin linked ordeal do anything about scatter die? I've never run into this problem (because I don't have two prisms...yet) and just wanted to clarify. Thank you in advance for the help.

Re-rolling with a normal template weapon means that you may roll the scatter dice all over again, if you want.

Yep I got the basics down, it was just the scatter thing throwing me off. Thanks so much for the hasty answer!

You have to roll all the dice, including the 2D6 distance as well. I'm not sure if you meant this or not, its just you only said scatter dice and may have caused confusion...

I meant it how I wrote it, scatter dice is not singular.

I suppose it's admirable of you to double check though, in case I had wrote it incorrectly.

I know dice is plural, just due to habit I always call it a scatter dice, not a scatter die, and I'm sure many others are in that habit. Thats all.

Love you Cricus

It's not a habit of mine, I'm afraid, still as I mentioned before it was more than likely a decent thing to ask.

Love you Circus.
