Quick On The Buzer

 

Effect: Speed Of Thought (+16 EGO To Act First To Answer Questions And Recite Facts)

Target: Self

Duration: Instant

Range: Self

END Cost: 0

 

Description: Sometimes, it is not just that you know something, but how fast you can recite what you know. That makes all the difrence between winning a million dollars and grumbling that you knew it, but were not fast enougth to answer befor your oponent. This 'power' uses the optinal Speed Of Thought Talent on page 48 of the Advance Player's Guide, and uses the "Answers Questions" and "Recite Facts" as a Mental Action (and since they are related, the GM calls them both a "Small Group Of Mental Actions").

 

Game Infromantion: Speed Of Thought (+16 EGO To Act First To Answer Questions And Recite Facts). Active Points: 4. Real Cost: 4.

 

1) More Quickly On The Buzer: Increse it to +32 EGO To Act First To Answer Questions And Recite Facts, makeing the Active Cost to 8 CP, and the Real Cost to 8 CP.

 

2) Lighting Fast Quick On The Buzer: Increse it to +64 EGO To Act First To Answer Questions And Recite Facts, making the Active Cost to 16 CP, and the Real Cost to 16 CP.

 

3) Slower, But Still Quick On The Buzer: Decrese it to +8 EGO To Act First To Answer Questions And Recite Facts, making the Active Cost to 2 CP, and the Real Cost to 2 CP.

 

4) Lighting Fast Buzer Pressing Also: It is not just being fast in your brain. It is worthless if your slow in singling device pressing also. Add Lighting Reflexes (+16 DEX To Act First To Activate Singling Device And Press Buttons), making it the Active Cost of 4 CP, and the Real Cost of 4 CP.

APGII p. 29 under Killing Attacks gives a GM the option to allow a character to declare which Characteristic adds damage to a HKA in the same way STR does.

 

So INT can be made to add damage to a HKA.

 

--

 

This leads to a new Advantage called Multiple Characteristics (+1/4) allowing a character to define two Characteristics that can add damage & switch between them as a Zero Phase Action.

 

STR Or INT (+1/4) would make a great Naked Advantage for a character with lots of INT.

Re: Genius Tricks

 

As a complete tangent, for my "Warhammer Inspired Super Heroes" game (aka WISH), one of the SFX (groups of abilities) is called Acuity.

 

It is a collection of intelligence & perception based Stunts. Many of the abilities could be translated into HERO System terms, and might provide some ideas for your set.

Your DNS is down.

An enemy fires at you, you cock your head to side, the round whizzes by your head, and after several *PTANKS* the bullet finally stops in the shooter's knee. Your team thought it was a terrible idea to stand out in the open. Someday they'll realize you know exactly what you're doing.

Reading this now. Thanks for the bump.

 

She has a perfect memory. So perfect, she once used it as a Targetting Sense/Darkvision: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Mindmistress_at_Drunk_Duck/5439229/

This is such an awesome addition for someone with Eidetic memory.

 

N-ray vision. Does not work in places character has never been (or seen) before.

Playing it out in my head until I get it right

 

Extradimensional movement back in time 5 minutes

Option: add trigger on your death or enforced unconsciousness.

 

No, really, I can go on all night. I have not even started on Transform and Change Environment yet.

Reminds me of the Replay power from Advance Players Guide 2 pages 40-42.

Has anyone suggested the simple 'buy Luck, call it "Having a Plan"'? Probably...

"i Love It When A Plan Comes Together": Luck 4d6, Requires A Roll (INT)

 

The special effect of this power is that it is not luck at all. The miraculous event was all planed, as was the period where the opponent was winning. Make them overconfident, then activate the turnaround.

 

Apology to the A-Team.

Somehow the Genius always manages to stand, move, or react in a way you hit surrounding things before you hit him. Sometimes he maneuvers you into striking a lamp post, sometimes he manages to hold some kitchen utensis in your fist's way.
