Adjustment power question restated

Recommended Posts

Per 6e1p166

ABSORPTION AS HEALING

Characters can use Absorption as a form of “healing” by having it feed the Absorbed points into BODY and/or STUN. As noted above the damage from the attack applies first to reduce those Characteristics, then Absorption applies to raise them again. The points of BODY and STUN gained this way fade at the standard rate for the power, but can still in effect serve as short-term “healing” by temporarily counteracting injuries.

 

So if Brawny with 6 pts of Absorption (not usable as a defense, non-persistent) to Stun, 12 def, and had 10 stun left and takes a 12 Body/24 Stun KA.  The wording indicates that Brawny would absorb 6 points of damage, which since it does not act as a defense, doesn't matter.  Bounces the Body and half the stun leaving 12 points of stun after defenses.  He would be at -2 Stun or unconscious when the absorbed points go into Stun bringing him back awake.

 

  1. Is the absorption turned off because he went unconscious?  Does he have to restart it?
  2. Does he get the absorption till the end of the segment or does it shut off immediately?

As a Constant Power, Absorption turns off at the end of the Segment in which the character is Knocked Out (6E2 106). It does not stop working immediately. Thus, assuming the character were attacked again in that Segment after being Knocked Out, but before the end of the Segment, it would be possible for him to Absorb enough Character Points to “heal himself awake.” If that happens, since he’s no longer Knocked Out neither his Absorption nor any other non-Persistent powers would stop working at the end of the Segment.
