Spend Focus (-1): Action requires the release of mental focus.
Spend Elan (-1): Action requires spending a point of Elan.
Spend Conviction (-3): Action requires spending a point of Conviction.
Scaling (-1): Action has a Difficulty that rises with each use.
Quick Scaling (-2): As Scaling, but Difficulty rises rapidly with each use.
