    Guidelines Block Range Attack

    personal rule of thumb for Blocking you can block an attack of you ( or specifically the limb or focus used to block the attack) can fend off the minimum possible damage the attack can do e.g. someone with 3PD can block a 3D6 attack someone with 1rPD can block a 1d6 HKA attack

    I was misremembering. Seems I have a version that's calling itself 4e. Browsed about halfway through at this point. I will have to finish it up tomorrow, as thus far I see nothing useful out replicants.

    Guidelines Block Range Attack

    This is not an everyman power.

    I would say Deflection (20 points), No Range (-1/2), OIF Lightsaber of Opportunity (-1/2) for 10 points. You can now Block, to your heart's content, any ranged attack just like you could in 6e, but for a reduced cost. Or you could pay 13 points, which would avoid the need for a Lightsaber - just wave your hand. Or you could be truly skilled at this Force Power, take no limitation and apply No Range Modifier. That is the example power Telekinetic Deflection, and enables you to Block ranged attacks at range. Or make it Range Line of Sight - you can Block any missile attack within your line of sight. How would I buy those abilities pre-6e? Anyone else trying to Block a blaster bolt will need an appropriate item to do so, and be subject to whatever limitations and penalties the GM considers appropriate. Now, what do I buy in any edition to enable my Jedi to Block a Sith's lightsaber and a Stormtrooper's Blaster in the same phase?

    Touch of chaos

    I think you need to think harder about stuff when you begin throwing large limitations around. I am of exactly the opposite opinion to you here. I think the reserve is limited but the slots are not and the limitation is not as severe as the rules say for no conscious control. If you allow a limitation that does that does not limit the character then you have gone wrong. I would have slashed the value of the limitation on the reserve to -1/4 making the reserve cost 48 points, a fixed slot cost 6 (no limitation as it is not the power that is limited it is the ability to switch between powers). So 60 points to have the ability to switch between blast and flash. Same price, more utility but I think I could live with that...or I might allow the full delay limitation but they apply to the slots as default, so it always takes five minutes to activate a power, much more restricted, much cheaper.

    If you misrepresent what you are wanting to accomplish by posting and thereby waste other people's time in writing a response, I would argue that you are being rude. If you are intentionally misrepresenting, then I'd argue that you are being intentionally rude.

    I was not a Silver Age fan. I saw the tail end of it, but even as a small child “Camp” was an anathema. The 1966 Batman, and the final two seasons on Lost in Space made me roll my eyes. It’s part of the reason, I went away from Superhero gaming after high school. I am not a genre guy apart from the initial setting. So the examples you bring up are lost on me until the last one. Anything involving a active gunfight means all parties have to make PRE rolls to expose themselves to enemy fire. A sergeant has to make a higher PRE attack upon his troops to get them to act, than the PRE threshold of the automatic fire coming their way. Yes the PRE degrades over time. But it starts fresh for each engagement. As to Micro man, I would give him A Special that due to his size, that any block would be against his DCV, with all the additional DCV due to his reduced size, plus any relevant CSLs bought as “avoid being blocked while moving through” and/or avoiding a Martial throw. Micro Man would be nearly impossible to block, in his move through, but then again, that’s his schtick.

    Ridiculous Feats and stats?

    How about: Extraordinary Success: Multipower, 140-point reserve, (140 Active Points); 1 Charge which Recovers every 6 months (-4), Extra Time (Full Phase, -1/2), Perceivable (-1/4), Requires A Roll (Power Tricks Skill roll, -1 per 20 Active Points modifier; -1/4), Incantations (-1/4), Gestures (-1/4); all slots Increased Endurance Cost (x2 END; -1/2) 3f Extra-Dimensional Movement (Any Dimension, Any Location corresponding to current physical location) (42 Active Points); Increased Endurance Cost (x2 END; -1/2) 4f Extra-Dimensional Movement (Any Point in Time, Physical Location Same As Starting Location) (67 Active Points); Increased Endurance Cost (x2 END; -1/2) 9f Tunneling 10m through 21 PD material, Fill In, MegaScale (1m = 10 km; +1 1/4) (139 Active Points); Increased Endurance Cost (x2 END; -1/2) 8f Luck 28d6 (140 Active Points); Increased Endurance Cost (x2 END; -1/2), Costs Endurance (Only Costs END to Activate; -1/4) Real Cost: 44pts. Add abilities/powers to suit. It only recovers every 6 months, so they can't use it all the time. Maybe once every few adventures, etc... If they want to waste it taking out a Goon then they can, but they can save for when they really need a cinematic amazing success use of power, etc...
