Shockwave level

Post by tesuji » Thu Jul 15, 2004 12:55 pm

If a character has normal strength 18 and super-strength+6 and the shockwave extra, does this mean:

a: The shockwave is going to cover a 30'r and do +6 damage to everyone in the radius (the value used is just the super-strength+6)

or

b: The shockwave affects a 45' r and does +9 to those in the area? (use super-strength plus strength for the radius and effect.)

or

c: other, please specify.
My Stupid Rule: If I would feel stupid describing a rule to my players, I will not use that rule.

30' radius, +9 damage. Range of Super-Strength extras is based on the Super-Str rank, damage is based on total Str bonus.
