Change the last sentence of the second point to read:

If a creature has a paranormal ability, reduce its Essence by 3 (to a minimum of 1), but any Essence-based power (for example, fear) functions at the creature's old Essence Rating (usually 6) plus half the difference between the new and old ratings (round up).

Change entire paragraph to read:

If the bear hit an unarmored character with its corrosive secretions power, that character would have to make a Damage Resistance Test at 9L-the bear's old Essence of 6 plus half the difference between ratings (6 - 1 = 5, divided by 2 =2.5, rounded up to 3).
