[GGtG] Miniaturization costs

Postby Dr. Nuncheon » Tue May 10, 2005 4:37 am

Sorry to repeat, but I think this got lost in my previous question.

Character A has Laser Beam Eyes (5 ranks of EB). This costs him 10 points.

Character B has a Laser Pistol (5 ranks EB, Device, size Tiny.) If I understand the GGtG rules correctly, this would cost him 15 points, as 'Tiny' would be 2 extras.

Is that correct or am I missing something? If it is, what advantages does it have over the inherent power that make it worth 50% more?

Actually a Diminutive or Tiny device is a +1 extra, so the cost is the same (10 pp, balanced out by the Device flaw). The laser pistol is can be taken away, but can also be loaned out or hidden somewhere other than on the character's person, which the other guy's laser eye beams cannot.
