Ability Rating: A numerical rating given to an ability to show its relative strength or importance. The higher the ability rating, the better the character is with that ability. The ability rating is rolled against in tests. See also Target Number
Target Number: A numerical rating given to an ability that is rolled against in the various tests.
This is rather confusing and circular. Surely the Ability Rating is a _non numerical_ rating and the numerical expression of the rating would be calculated as Target Number + 20 for each level of mastery. Therefore a character with a Berserker Magic rating of 4W would have an edge of +6 as opposed to an edge of +1 as implied by the glossary.
