Constructs and Growth

Postby XLS » Sun Jan 29, 2012 11:02 am

I have a question-- more academic than anything-- about Constructs and the Growth power.

Let's say I'm building a PC that's a sentient robot. But let's also say that I want this robot to be sort of tall, so I give it 4 ranks of Growth-- it's considered Large and is 8' tall.

Now, because it's a construct, it has no CON. But growth gives me a 1 rank in my CON for each rank in Growth. Presumably, the rules about constructs having no Constitution trump anything else, so the CON stays at 0 and I'll still need to buy Immunity for that. But does the fact that I'm not benefitting from the ranks of CON that Growth gives me mean that I get those 4 points back to use elsewhere?

Again, this is all academic: I'm building NPC robots for an upcoming adventure (get ready, Freedom League: West Coast!), so I am not constrained as much by power points. But it did make me wonder, and I thought I'd ask the forum members their thoughts...

"Larger Constructs gain +2 toughness per increase in size category above medium (But do not gain the additional Constitution from Growth)."

Page 149 of the core rules.

OK, so they get the toughness, but not the actual CON score.
