Alternate Form Transformation triggers

Postby Aerlock » Wed Mar 12, 2014 10:10 am

I'm building a Material Mimic for a pbp game here and I've got a problem.

I had an idea that I'm not sure how to mechanically represent. I want him to have a difficult time switching forms. He requires a source of the material he's going to change into equal to his mass and he has two options to initiate the transformation: 1.) Dig himself into the material he's going to change into, in game terms a full round activation 2.) Get slammed into the material or have the material slammed into him and be Stunned for a round.

The second one and making it an either/or options is whats difficult for me to build. You guys have any ideas?

You might look at Normal Identity for inspiration. A full-round trigger is worth 2 pp. Severity will be lower since he'll probably usually have access to all of his powers, so I'd say it's Moderate at most. Subtract 1 more for having the other option of transforming upon getting hit into a surface and it's somewhere around 3-4 pp as a Drawback.
