"Discard this card to roll your arcane die =2d6 with the cold trait"

what does this mean? what's a cold trait?

another card says , for your combat check, discard this card to roll your aracand die plus 2d4 with the force trait.

What is a 2d4 with the force trait mean?

In both cases it tells you the type of damage you inflict. Most of the time this does not matter. But look at the Hellhound card. It says:

"Add 1 die to checks to defeat the Hell Hound with the Cold trait."

So if your attack has the cold trait you get an extra die.

Those traits are needed to add to weapons so you can defeat some monsters that require that trait to defeat them.

It means that you roll extra dies, and your type of attack has an extra "cold trait"

For example, if your spell card got the "Magic" trait in the upper left corner of the card picture, that means it hits AS a "magic" attack.
That way it can kill the "Shadow" Monster for example, which one can only defeated if your attack has the "Magic" trait.

So if you roll extra 2d4 WITH the "cold trait" your attack hits AS a "cold" attack.

I diddnt seen some, but there might be creatures who take extra damage, when hit by attacks with the "cold" trait OR are immune to attacks with the "cold" trait. Im sure we will find out soon.

SEONI hit HELL HOUND with Ice Beam. It's super effective!

I'm sure there will be a lot more examples of these traits mattering later. For instance, in the Pathfinder RPG, devils tend to be immune to fire. So stuff like Scorching Ray or Seoni's default blast power might not work against them.
