An extra is a modification of a standard Quantum power to include additional effects. (For example: Area of effect added to a firebolt attack makes it a fireball attack). Extras can be permanently purchased anytime after Phase 2: Nova for Experience Points / Nova Points.[1] Extras can also be temporarily added on by "maxing out" a power. However, the user of a "maxed" power risks gaining temporary taint.[2]

Each extra purchased with a Quantum power, raises its level by one in a nova with a Quantum rated from 1 to 5. So for example, a Level One Quantum Power purchased with two extras; will become a Level Three Quantum Power. A power bought with one or several extras, is considered a unique power.[1]

However, if a nova with a Quantum of 6 or more buys an extra for a power, it may or may not change the power level. The power itself is still considered unique.[3]
