  • Adding a Spell marked as an Ability to the Player without at least one Effect Item set in the Spell's Effects List will result in a crash to desktop when the Player attempts to view their Active Effects in the menu.
    • You can get away with an Effect-less Ability by applying the AbBlank Effect to an Ability. This will prevent crashing, but keep the Ability from appearing in Active Effects.
