Multiple Foci / reduced effectiveness


Rebar
 Share

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.

HD is following the rules of the system.

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.
