Name Subname Effect
Centurion Directive - Some of Centurion's talents refer to 'Out of Turn Actions'. These talents affect only those in Squad Mode; the actions can be made whenever the talent says they are triggered (which is on the Centurion's turn if no other time is specified), and ignore restrictions on actions (eg. if an Out of Turn Action permits a Squadmate to attack, they are not restricted from making attacks on their own turn).
Rolemaster - Before the battle, you may assign Roles to all members of the Squad under your command. These roles are only active during Squad Mode. You do not have to give everyone the same role, but a Squadmate may only have one Role at any given time. For free, you begin with a single Role: Team Player.
- Team Player All Squadmates with this Role treat Formation Range as being double for their own purposes.
