Combining Powers

Recommended Posts

Getting back to Hero after a few years of not really having a group for it. 

Where should I look for the rules of combining Power activation with just Punching someone?  

Like if a person has a No Range Flash, and they want to use a Martial Maneuver while they activate that.  

Thanks much for any reference on that.

In 6e, the term used is "Combined Attack", and appears on v2 p 74, in discussing Multiple Attacks.  Using two or more powers or similar abilities is not a multiple attack, just a type of Strike.  That technically means you cannot use a Martial Strike and a 0 range Flash as you are using a Strike and a Martial Strike, two different combat maneuvers.  Probably reasonable, as it prevents getting the OCV and DCV modfiers for the Martial Strike with the Flash attack as well, although I'd consider allowing the player to just pay 1 point for Weapon Element: Flash adding to his Martial Arts.

My last character did this sort of thing, and she wasn't over powered.  She would use her martial ability to do a touch attack to administer a Drain attack.  I did have a bunch of limitations on the touch attack to equalize it (such as it was only effective against living beings). 

 

Good luck!
