EDM = Effect Damage Multiplier
The EDM is given in the PMF Table and is used to multiply the EDF x the offensive capability of a particular Magick User.
It is called DIE Modifier hereafter in the rules.

Just to clarify a little:

PMF - Personal Magical Factor
This is the arcane version of the Fighter classes PCF.

EDF - Effect Damage Factor.
This is the PMF related damage modifier that a mage uses to determine the amount of damage caused from just ONE volume of magical material used.

BMR - Basic Magick Resistance.
This a factor from E to 10 that all physical materials (matter) have that enables it to resist attempts by magic users to infuse that material with magical properties. Once reduced to BMR E materials can be used by mages in magical devices, and other such objects of arcane value. The higher the BMR the more resistant the material is to magic.  E = enchanted and thus totally open to manipulation by mages.

There are other terms as well but these are the most misunderstood.

When I finish reading the books , I will begin like this...
