Multiple Foci / reduced effectiveness

Recommended Posts

HDv5 has the following +1/4 reducer on Focus:

"Requires Multiple Foci or functions at reduced effectiveness"

 

i.e. If one were to buy OAF with this reducing adder, it would be only +3/4 instead of +1.

 

I've looked in both FRed (5th Revised Edition) and the HD5 docs, to no avail.

 

I would have thought that this would be a greater limitation, not a lesser one.

 

I'm imagining someone needing to use, say, a staff and a potion.

 

Or, say, a bunch of grenades with a grenade launching gun. If the gun were to be taken away, they could still be thrown, with, say, reduced range/OCV.

 

How is "Requires Multiple Foci or functions at reduced effectiveness" less of a hindrance than the focus alone?

Read the rules.

Read my post:

 

"I've looked in both FRed (5th Revised Edition) and the HD5 docs, to no avail."

 

There is no mention of this in either the rules or the software docs, that I have been able to find.

 

You could help by directing me to the appropriate section.

But I cannot find this +1/4 addy in the rules anywhere.

Not my job and not the purpose of this forum.

 

 

OK, I'll grant maybe I am using the Hero Designer subforum wrong.

 

I thought that it would be a place where I could go to ask any questions about the software.

I may have been presumptuous that I could ask 'Why am I not getting the results I expect', but it's possible that it's meant to be more of a support type forum, to-wit: 'why can I not load/save, etc.'

 

Can you enlighten me as to how to properly use the HD forum? Then this won't keep happening.

HD is following the rules of the system.  For someone who knows the rules as well as you claim, you should be able to find a reference that is directly out of 5ER and Sidekick.
