Using Bennies for Higher Initiative
This doesn't devalue the Quick or Level-headed Edges either. Those still apply. It does empower the Lucky Edge to effectively have Quick or Level-headed, too, if the player chose to use the bennies for that purpose, but that's still a limited resource versus an Edge that always works.
So how does it work?
Bennies for InitiativeAt any time during a round, a player may spend a benny to draw an additional card from the Action Deck. The effects from the Quick and Level-headed Edges do not apply to this draw.
New Background Edge
Really QuickRequirements: Veteran, Quick
When the player spends a benny to draw another card from the Action Deck for initiative, the effects of the Quick Edge apply to the draw.
