  1. Re: Just saw 6th Edition and got a chance to leaf through it... d00d... kind of amazing what a little 5 word question can start.
  2. ...and I haven't had a chance to digest it all yet. The complete decoupling of figured characteristics is going to take some getting used to... and, I'm already jonesin' for an EC... Why is Dex 2 points?

  4. A thing that sits there designed to contain a thing, a thing that might ojbect to staying inside the thing.
  5. I've got a character that wants to build a supress damage shield and I want to make sure I'm going to adjudicate it correctly. First, I assume a Supress Damage Shield is kosher under the rules with the +1/2 Damage shield advantage, since Supress is already a Constant power. Correct? Second, is Supress Cumulative? Third, I assume that since this is a damage shield, that the END for the power must be paid every phase the power is active, and not just in phases where the damage shield is struck. Correct? I've already looked in the FAQ and FREd and just need clarification on these point. Thank you.
  6. Wonderful... I've got no problem with Instant powers and OIHID.. but what about the Persistant Powers? Thor's previously mentioned 90 strength... He can change into Thor and activate None of the Persistant Powers tha Make Him Thor. He could be Thor and still have the stats of his Normal form. At what point is he no longer Thor? Shouldn't there be a Minimum set of Powers that must be Active for him to remain Thor?
  7. How does he get In and Out of Hero ID? Which of his powers (useable in Hero ID) can he voluntarily turn Off and still be in Hero ID? I think you understand Binary too well... there is not only On and Off.
  8. Let me try this another way... If a character has a set of Powers that Define the Hero ID, (i.e. Their activation is the thing that defines the character as being IN Hero ID. The character is not IN Hero ID until these powers are Activated), then putting OIHID limitation on those powers would prevent the character from Ever entering Hero ID. So, how do you define a suite of powers that all activate at the same time and Place the character IN Hero ID so that he might be able to use any powers that he might have that Have OIHID?
  9. I'm sorry... the book doesn't enumerate the depth and breath of the possibilities for how characters might enter Hero ID. It does however state that it should take at least a Full Phase, and some method must be supplied to prevent or make difficult the change. I was wondering how War-Man was so limited, as I see nothing on the sheet that specifies how the transformation takes place.
  10. Another couple things... How does that character get in and out of Hero ID? How does one prevent him from entering Hero ID? Human Characteristic Maxima? I'm not seeing the extra points being paid for the stats that exceed the maximums.
  11. Ok... and what? It's a character that has a list of powers that are only useable in hero ID... That's basicly a non-sequitur. The list of powers under question basicly Define the Hero ID, and if you have to be in Hero ID to use them, you can't use them until you're in Hero ID... It's a chicken/egg problem. So, which comes first, the Hero ID, or the powers that define the ID?
  12. No... maybe it's the programmer side of my personality coming out, but I don't like that solution. It's not a Multiform, it's a suite of powers that get activated when the character enters Hero ID. There shouldn't be any choice in the matter... it's like the powers are linked, but the rules for link don't allow what I'm trying to accomplish. Right now they'e just OIHID, but that by itself doesn't require the activation of the powers when the Hero ID Transform is activated. Maybe I'll just make up a -1/4 Limitation to do what I want it to do... Seems like it should be a pretty easy thing to do, but it's not being that way.
