In Heroes of Alvena, whenever you would roll to determine a random amount of healing done to a target (such as a cleric casting cure light wounds) you may forgo making the roll and take the average of the roll instead. The spell or effect is still considered to have a random numeric variable, such feats such as Empower Spell and Maximize Spell may still be applied to the spell as desired. The only difference is you are choosing to take the average of healing done. This applies to all forms of random healing (such as from spells, a paladin's lay on hands, and so forth) and temporary hit points (such as from the aid spell) except for temporary hit points derived from a damaging effect (such as with vampiric touch).
