  1. Empathy?

    Is using enhanced senses in this way valid and not broken? For a mute character who's primary means of communication with others is by giving empathic sensations/'nudges'. It only operates within 8m from the character, and may or may not need to take Penetrative... 34 Detect (Mental Sense Group) Emotions (Large Class; 10), Sense(2), 360 PER(5), Range(5), Discriminatory(5), Transmit(2), Concealed(-5; 5). The alternative AFAIK would be building something like: 39 Telepathy 3D6, Alien, Animal, Plant, Machine classes (35 BP), AoE Radius(8m; +½), Reduced END(Zero; +½), IPE(Hide From Targets; +½) (87 AP); No Range(-½), Empathy(-½), Not Through Mind Link(-¼) 43 Mind Control 3D6, Alien, Animal, Plant, Machine classes (35 BP),Telepathic(+¼), AoE Radius(8m; +½), Reduced END(Zero; +½), IPE(Hide From Targets; +½) (96 AP); No Range(-½), Empathy(-½), Not Through Mind Link(-¼) Which IMO are massive point expenditures for not much effect. Not to mention they are way over the game's AP cap...
  2. A character has a Constant or Persistent power with a lengthy startup time (Resistant Defense, for example), and also a the Multiform power. They have their Resistant Defense power up and running and then choose to Multiform to their different form. When they revert back, do they have to restart the Resistant Defense from scratch? I.e., when you Multiform *out* of one form, does that "turn off" all powers that form has?
  3. 6E1 says that a VPP normally takes "between a Turn and a Minute to change", and gives the example Control Cost Limitation of "Only Changes Between Adventures (Takes Days)" of -1/2. Because of that example, does that preclude someone from putting the Extra Time Limitation of 'Takes 1 Day(-4)' on the Control Cost? I presume so, but would like something more official than my presumption.

  5. Build Ideas for "Digital Energy Being"

    This is along the lines of what I was thinking, except for my character it wouldn't be a link - he would be *in* the body's "mind"/CPU Core. Think kinda like how Shadowcat can phase and "hide" inside of another X-Man, like Colossus. Obviously she is not controlling him - but she is inside him, phased. If he gets killed, she would still be there, phased. This is fairly similar to what I was thinking, but... The body is built as a follower? What happens if the follower/android body is killed? It's not like followers grow on trees... What about building the body as a vehicle? While they too don't grow on trees they can be manufactured, and the second one doesn't have any reservations from knowing the first one getting destroyed.
  6. Build Ideas for "Digital Energy Being"

    What is the reasoning for saying AO is not useable? It would be his natural state, and not something he can (easily) turn off at will - kinda like a ghost's Desolid. It is Inherent into the existence, and thus AO.
  7. Hi assembled Hero-ites, I would like some advice for building a creature that is basically an "energy being". I am thinking of it having the attributes of being able to interface with - and possibly even "possess" - computers. But while not "possessing" a computer and existing as an independent entity is basically Desolid all the time. This may or may not be in a game with the existence of "Cyberspace" - would that choice make a difference on the interfacing/possessing aspects? Question: Should I buy Desolid + Zero END + Persistent + Inherent - Always On, in addition to a Physical Complication of being intangible with the exception of computer systems? Question: Should I buy Mind Control and Telepathy (both Machine Class of Mind), or just a very high Computer Programming roll, or for some reason both? Question: Are any of the other mental powers useable in dealing with Computers/Cyberspace? Thanks much for your input!
