Terminology Changes

Recommended Posts

I've never had any trouble separating DCV, PD and rPD, but some of my players are tripping over the overlapping terms.

 

Something I've found helpful:

OCV changed to Offense

DCV changed to Defense

PD changed to Physical Resistance (PR)

rPD changed to Armor - Players understand intuitively that body armor prevents lethal damage.  I miss the Armor power from earlier editions.  Yes, it overlapped resistant defense, but it was easily understood by the players.

 

Have you found any terminology / jargon changes that made the game easier for your players?

I like that. I usually think of r[PE]D as "DEF" but "armor" is more intuitive.

 
   The problem is with new players a word like “armor” can make things confused.

    Superman and Batman both have resistant PD (of different amounts) But Special Effect wise, Supes has a skin tight force field. While Bats has armor.

  When I started I originally thought all “armor”had to be Iron Man style.

What?!

 

When the Hell did _that_ happen?!

 

 


   During John Byrne’s Man of Steel reboot after Crisis on Infinite Earths.  It was his way of explaining the invulnerability.  
   He was also the one who came up with Superman having a form of touch telekinesis to explain why large/heavy objects didn’t crumble apart when he lifted them.
