Gotcha.

And that's true; I was aiming for something like having speed, but not as standard as just regular. So, perhaps you'd be willing to let me play up the balance and Oda's survival skills instead? If I were to take the stopping of her body's cycles a bit further, it could perhaps make it so she can't have her mind altered as well as her body? So, she can affect the world only as a talented human being, but has total dominion over herself, save for The Hanged Man's influence?

Oda would, of course, still be vulnerable to illusions that are summoned into the world, instead of affecting the mind of the watcher. So, if The Empress were to summon a swarm of bugs for everyone to see, Oda would see them along with everyone else. But, if she were to try trapping Oda in eternal pain, it wouldn't work. She also wouldn't be able to see through The Hermit's invisibility.

Too much or...? It's kinda difficult to come up with fitting secondary powers for this card.
Having extreme speed to the extent that you seem to be implying would be the result of an arcana card rather than a secondary power, but having slightly increased speed would be perfectly acceptable. I like the second idea though, this section:

That would be perfectly acceptable and would fit in very nicely with her arcana card so I'd be all for this. Make her a skilled fighter to the extent that a regular human being could be and use the secondary power that you suggested above then it'll be fine :)
