I was reading the rules on Healing and Adjustment Powers, and noticed something odd. Under the general rules about Adjustment Powers, it says Defense Powers: To balance the usefulness of defenses in the HERO System, the effect of any Adjustment Power that increases or decreases any of the following is halved: any Defense Power; the Characteristics CON, DCV, DMCV, PD, ED, REC, END, BODY, and STUN Healing is listed as an Adjustment Power, so would Healing have half effect on BODY? That doesn't sound right, and it contradicts multiple examples in the description of Healing. Suppose a character has 2d6 of Healing that is bought as applying simultaneously to STR, BODY, END, and STUN. If I roll 8 on the dice, does it then heal 8 points of STR, but only 4 points worth of BODY (= 2 BODY), 4 points worth of END (= 8 END), and 4 points worth of STUN (=4 STUN)?
Healing is an Adjustment Power. Adjustment Powers have half effect on "Defensive Characteristics" such as BOD, STUN, & END. Does Healing therefore have half effect when restoring BOD, STUN, & END, the very abilities it would seem to be designed to effect and will be used for most often? edit: Thank you, I was pretty sure that was the answer but I hadn't found it after a search so I decided to ask.
