On page 50 it says opponent must refill highest die. But on the full description on page 54 it says you may force opponent to refill. Is it may or must?

I think it is reroll (not refill) - and as it is a ability you choose to use or not, it's the owner's choice.

If you have the ability, you can choose to have the enemy to re-roll, but you can choose to not force the re-roll if you are happy with the results of your enemies roll.

Yes it should say reroll. Autocorrect fail. Thanks. I just wasn't sure if with all of the other bonuses of that ability it could potentially cause a negative affect if it were MUST reroll to balance things out.

Musts are tough. I tried my best to clean it up but there are a few ambiguities.

I try in my interpretations to first see what makes the most sense and then try to reconcile that with the words that are written as best I can.

There is a drug effect that causes you to reroll the highest die in your skill check. If you roll snake eyes, that could let you reroll a "1". Most of the time it is bad but sometimes it will be a boon.

wow, this thread is so specific... with games like this I usually revel at funny moments like getting to reroll a 1 while under a negative-influence drug.
