Help modeling a power

Recommended Posts

I am in the midst of making a trio of villians. As a opposite to the Twelve, who were all low powered, this will be three well powered (12-14 dc, 30+ def, speeds 5-8) with lots os levels and skills.

 

So I have a brick with flight and a nasty EB.

A rainbow themed Blaster (RKA, EB, Flash etc)

 

My third member though is a speedster, living electricity, who basically runs through his opponents doing damage. So 30" of movement and .......

 

Would you just make his move-bt/through a special fxs?

 

I was thinking of a HTH attack, with AE to represent his hitting more than one person.

 

Any other ideas?

Well, if you want the speedster to actually take the form of electricity (instead of throwing electrical 'blasts') you could go all the way and model that effect. To see what I mean take a look at the Wind Spirit half of my old 5e version of DC's Red Tornado (basically an air elemental spirit inhabiting an android body).

Energy Blast' date=' Area of Effect (Trail) would seem to fit the bill. You would probably technically need Desolidification and the EB to Affect Physical World to 'perfectly' match the SFX, but that would probably be pretty broken.[/quote']

 

I agree. AOE (Trail) would be great with this guy, and I can speak from experience, speedsters with desolid and attacks that affect physical world are pretty broken. Heck, any character that does that is scary. Maybe to represent the "desolid" aspect you could just give him some damage reduction.

Funny you ask about that.

I just worked on a character for a new player in our table. An electrical Speedster with a Frankenstein based background.. but that's another story.

Here's the thing.

Re: Help modeling a power

 

In 6e, HA attacks with Advantages get STR added at a prorated amount depending on the amount of Advantages. So in the case of an HA with +1 worth of combat Advantages it means that STR adds +1 Damage Class per 10 points of STR (1/2 the normal rate). See details in 6e2 pages 100-101.

 

Another way figure out how much STR adds is to take the combined amount of combat Advantages and add +1 to it. Now Divide the character's STR by this total number. The result is how much STR they really get to apply to that Advantaged HA.

 

Example:

STR 45 Character with an HA with +1/2 worth of advantages.

1/2 +1 = 1 1/2

1 1/2 = 3/2

45 divided by 3/2 can also be written as 2/3 of 45 which = 30

The character can add 6 DC from STR to the Advantaged HA

Re: Help modeling a power

 

Opale' date=' on your character your moving attacks only do 5d6 damage right? I believe you would have to add in a naked advantage for strength with the appropriate AOE in order for your strength to add in, correct?[/quote']

 

Like Hype said ^^

thank you !

Re: Help modeling a power

 

I have a different take on your electric attack. I imagine your character flashes instantly from one place to another, and damages everyone in his path along the way. I would build it as an attack (let's say 3d6 HKA, though electricity could be a No KB Blast, or a NND or whatever) with a Linked Teleport. The attack is AOE Line, so the mechanics would simulate a bolt of electricity jumping across a distance with your character ending up at the other end:

 

Killing Attack 3d6 HKA vs. ED

AOE Line, 17m-32m (+1/2)

No STR Bonus (-1/2)

45 pts.

 

32m Teleport (+10 No Relative Velocity)

Reduced END - 0 (+1/2)

Linked (-1/2)

Only through conductive space/material (cannot teleport through unconductive barrier) (-1/4)

Can only teleport to end location of AOE Attack (-1/4)

28 pts.
