New Skills from Ultimate Skill 5th edition

Recommended Posts

I noticed that all of the new skills in chapter 2 (starting on page 354) is listed in HD except Divination.  Is this an oversight?  Maybe?

 

I have the absolute latest version of HD.

Caveat: not looking it up right now, so this is based on memory.

 

It's the nature of the ability -- it doesn't fit in with any other Skill in the HERO System and would require entirely custom code to work into HD.  That would make both the code base and the functionality needlessly more complex...vs. simply stating that if you want to go with a non-cannon rule, you use a Custom Skill (or Custom Power).

You are right.  It is rather complex.

 

I would like to make a suggestion about the Custom Skill:  could you make it so that we have the option of using it with base characteristics?  Maybe a checkbox with a drop down list?  My reason is it would make custom skills autocalculate when there's a characteristic increase (or decrease).
