Power Source

The source of an ability, while rarely important, can at times be vital for understanding if it is going to have an effect. This is especially important when an ability can only target items from a certain source, has a weakness or resistance to a source, etc. Below are the basic lists of potential sources. It is, in theory, possible to have multiple sources for the same power, though rare. Make sure to note in the description what the source of a power is. Not required on skills.
