Super-strength extras raduis and saves

Post by interforce » Tue Jul 06, 2004 1:10 pm

I have a character with Strength 20 and 10 ranks of super-strength with both the shockwave and thunderclap extras. 1)Is the raduis of the extras' attack based on just the strength bonus i.e. +5 or the Strentgh bonus plus the ranks in super-strength i.e. +15, the way that damage is calculated? Would the radius be 25 or75. 2)Similiarly, for the checks and saves required to see if someone is affected by either extra, would the DC be 10+5 or 10+15?

Use the character's total Strength bonus (Str + Super-Str) for these calculations.

My apologies, this is in error. It should be Super-Strength rank only for range, but total Str bonus for damage and save DCs.
