Always On not available?


Recommended Posts

I have a power I am working on but for some reason it is showing Always On as not available. Here is the screen shot:



Under view reason it says:

Always On may only be applied to abilities which are either Persistent or Inherent


And the power text:

Stabilization field:  Aid  PD 2d6, Area Of Effect (16m Radius Explosion; +1/4), Persistent (+1/4), Constant (+1/2), Affects Desolidified Any form of Desolidification (+1/2) (30 Active Points)


What am I doing wrong?

That was it. Not sure why the View Reason did not mention that one.

My bad -- I misread the view reason text (and misremembered the rule).  The note about Persistent/Inherent is there because that's the first "blocker" that Always On is running into -- the ability has an "effective duration" of Constant in your initial post because it costs END.   It's a bit of an inconsistency in the 6E rules -- you can apply Persistent to an ability that costs END, but the rule regarding END Usage when unconscious doesn't change, so the actual/effective Duration of the ability remains Constant until the END usage is changed.


I don't make the rules...I just code HD to follow them.
