Trouble stating out Psionic tendril

Post by Prescient » Wed Jun 29, 2005 8:40 pm

Hey Steve,

I have been having problems stating out a power: a psionic tendril.

I wanted the character to be able to create tendrils of psionic energy from each hand, kinda like the way Venom does with his webs. The character would be able to snare objects or enemies, throw them around, and strike his enemies with them.

I also thought of having a burning effect around the tendrils that would burn the enemies he snared with them. This energy could be channeled more potently to explode on contact instead of burning, say, to bring down the side of a buuilding with an area effect.

Can you help me stat it out? I have thought of a few ways involving telekinesis or the Strike power with range extras but nothing comes out right.

Thx in advance :)

Sorry, but this forum isn't for power-design questions, although I'm sure folks in the General forum would be happy to offer suggestions.
