<< If you have several uncanceled masteries what happens when you have more
 than you require to bump the result up to a critical . Do you lose the extra
bumps
 or dose the result of the target go down a level of success as well ? >>

     A critical is the best result possible. Thus, if you have two masteries
and roll a normal success, that is bumped to a critical; the additional
mastery has no effect. The extra levels of mastery only increase the
likelihood of a critical, they don't make it any more effective when you do
get one. This does mean that having four uncancelled masteries is no better
than having three (you critical automatically in both cases), but, let's be
honest, if you've got that large an advantage over your opponent anyway, why
would you care just how gooey a mess you pulverised him into?

Forward the glorious Red Army!
