Some manner of effect hits you with such undeniable power or force that you cannot defend against it by any means.
“Absolute” is an effect prefix that will come before another effect type. When a character is hit with an “Absolute” effect, she cannot resist or defend against the attack in any way, shape or form. This includes Withdraw, Dodge¸ and similar abilities. The only exception is that a character that is immune to such abilities remains immune, and may still call out “No Effect”.
