Dropped. But note that the base power of his magic array has had Indirect from Merlin's original version.


Actually not sure what the point of indirect on create is, as it doesn't really originate from you anyway. You don't create a wall that comes out of you and goes to the place, you create an object at the place you want it. What's indirect doing for you?

Also, checked the sheet, and the create is still selective.

Oops, sorry. Somehow the planned changes didn't get applied to that one. Updated now. As for the indirect on the other create, I assumed that was the only way to create something inside of something else, i.e. trap someone in a spherical ward then fill it with something nasty.

I'm not sure Create can replicate that without a linked Affliction or Damage effect. Generally the only offensive use of Create is in the "drop object on people" style. So a Create effect of fire is not innately harmful without a Damage effect tacked on.

What he said.
Create can entrap or deal straight damage from falling, but to replicate other effects youd need to build them, probably as linked or alternate powers.
Also in either case, Indirect isn't needed. You need to be able to accurately perceive the target, so subtle 2 (Invisible constructs) would probably be more what you're wanting.
