After the third resistance test, the pathogen suddenly releases the mycotoxin, leading to an increase of the Power level, which must be then resisted, causing Physical damage.

However, there are no rules for how the Power level is supposed to be increased. I mean, sure, the Power level for every disease can increase over time, as explained by the resistance rules on p. 130. But does Timebomb have another way to increase its power level after the 3rd resistance test?

The way I understand it right now, it works like that:

- Alice comes into contact with Timebomb
- After 12 hours she makes a pathogen resistance test against a Power of 10 and rolls 4 successes. No damage is dealt, but she feels nauseous and suffers the effects of it.
- After another 12 hours she makes another resistance test against 9 (Power 3 plus the 6 left over from the last test). She rolls 6 successes. Again, no damage is dealt, she feels nauseous but the remaining power of 3 is less than her willpower so it doesn't affect her too much.
- 12 hours later, time for the next and 3rd resistance test against 6. Alice rolls 3 successes. Now she takes 3 damage, nausea doesn't really affect her.
- 12 hours, 1 resistance test against 6 Again. Alice rolls 6 successes, no damage, no nausea effects.
- 12 hours, 1 resistance test against 3. 3 successes, no damage, no nausea effects

right?

Then what does the sentence I cited mean? How is the power level increased? Is it 10 again, after the 3rd test and they forgot to mention it? It's really kind of confusing...
