Quickness and Sleep or is there a list?

Postby Oracle of Time » Sun Jul 06, 2008 2:07 am

This is mostly a question about all the things that can be done with Quickness that don't normally have a skill roll that you can take a 20 in, like sleep.

At lower levels of Quickness, it really does not justify Immunity to Sleep, however could a character use it to get the same amount of Sleep / healing in a shorter amount of time? Take a sample character Paragon. He has Quickness 3 which should mean he can get a full nights sleep / normal healing in 48 minutes, which leaves at least 6 hours for patrolling.

What about the Gadgeteer who has Quickness 4 (x25; Flaws: Limited to mental tasks)? Some would say that sleep and dreaming is mental. Would that leave her to need only about 18 minutes of sleep needed?

This would certainly allow the character more time to do crime-fighting, adventuring, etc.

Is there a list of what can also be done with Quickness that may not be a skill that you could take a 20 in?

Sleep isn't really an "action" as such; note that Quickness doesn't allow characters to heal faster (that's Regeneration), and I'd say sleep is similar. (Besides, if you really want the ability, Immunity to Sleep is just 1 point).
