Can't build Shields in HD


Recommended Posts

First bit, I apologize if this has been explained already, I could not find it if it was.

Now, honestly, I hoping I'm just doing something wrong, and the answer is just sitting in front of my face.

But when i go to build a shield as per the explanations in the Equipment Guide, HD wont let me.

When building the DCV portion of the Multipower, I can not add Real Armor, Mass, or STR Min Reqs, without force adding.

Not that i cant just do that, but it seems silly when this is how your build a shield...

Well I'm confused... then by RAW, how are you supposed to replicate this? If one rule says no, but then this is how you are supposed to do it?

Equipment Guide pg.237

- In game terms, a shield is bought as a two-slot
Multipower. The first slot provides bonuses to
DCV, bought as DCV Levels with the OAF (-1),
Real Armor (-¼), Mass (Normal Mass; -1), and
STR Minimum Limitations. For every 5 points (or
fraction thereof) a shield’s user’s STR is below the
shield’s STR Minimum, reduce the DCV bonus it
provides by 1. Additionally, the wielder may apply
his shield’s DCV bonus as a bonus to his OCV for
purposes of Blocking (see 6E2 58). -

Also, I don't mean to be overbearing or come off as rude, I'm just trying to make sure i understand correctly.

Even if the answer is "Weird... Just overrule it.", cool. Just trying to get it to make sense in may head.

Because even in HERO Vol 2:

"Build shields as +1 (or more) DCV with the
Focus (OAF) and STR Minimum Limitations
applied to them. For every 5 points (or fraction
thereof) a shield’s user’s STR is below the shield’s
STR Minimum, reduce the DCV bonus it provides
by 1."

 

Also, when I brought the DCV out of the Multipower, is still don't have access to the limitations.
