There is this cool ability of the spirit speaker called "Cloud of Mist". It reads: "Exhaust this card. While this card is exhausted, each attack that targets a space within 3 spaces of you misses unless the attacker spends 1 Surge"
Now, the dwarf in our group wears this cool armor-cape. It delets one of the surges you attacker rolled. Does this mean attacking the wearer inside the mist would cost the OL two surges???
