    So! Big news! The Jack of All Trades Regulation that was announced in 2010 on the RPG is finally explained on the Extraordinary Abilities page!

We're still in the process of working out how these apply to specific powers, like Advanced Electrokinesis or Advanced Radiogenesis. But hooray for having the basics!
