Control Powers PDF


Jason S.Walters

Superhero MMOs and similar computer games often feature two types of characters who occur far less commonly in tabletop RPGs: the Controller and the Debuffer. A Controller is a type of character who specializes in controlling the behavior and options of the enemy so that the enemy becomes completely useless and/or helpless (or nearly so). Their powers may focus on hard control (locking a target in place, putting a target to sleep, removing a target’s ability to take Actions in the game, controlling a target’s mind), soft control (“debuffing” a target so that his actions are less effective, or even pointless), or some combination of the two. A Debuffer focuses primarily on soft control powers, and often also has some ability to “buff” (enhance the abilities of) or defend a group of heroes. They may also possess powers that inflict damage on the enemy, whereas Controllers tend to have much weaker damage-causing powers (if any).
