![[effect_conditions.png]] Because the Cypher System doesn't have a defined list of conditions and their effects, the ruleset allows GMs to define their own conditions and effects. You can find this list in the Effects settings window (depicted above), directly beneath the Lights section under the heading "Conditions." A condition is simply a shorthand term for an effect that can modify a character on the combat tracker. The GM can create new conditions, set the icons that appears on tokens that have the conditions, and set their effect.
