That actually costs 20 points. Blast 5 is 10, but since its Strength-based, you have to pay an extra point for adding the ranged extra to that one pip of Strength Damage. So that's 11 points+6 for Dodge extra+1 for Accurate+2 for Indirect.
11+6+1+2=20.

And I will definitely allow people to futz with their builds a little once points are awarded. Sometimes after you take a character for a spin once you realize things aren't working like you needed.

Anyway, I'll have the IC thread up at some point tomorrow, and then we can get started. Looking forward to it!

I canot post right now but I just wanted to say I don't want to hog the spotlight or derail the plot.

If the characters or the police refuse to believe Warp (and really, there's no reason to trust anything she claims right now) she'll offer to help out with the situation in the casino to show she's trustworthy. We can go from there. :)

Well, after thought-speaking with you, Legacy would believe you at least belive your own story. And having experienced time travel himself would believe you are aware of an upcoming temporal divergance which.could result in diverging timelines.

So there‘s that ;)

I thought of that too. If Warp knew there was a psychic in the group, she would offer to have her mind read.

But once it's established that she's for real, the end of the universe kind of makes everything else pale in comparison and we'd look kind of silly for still worrying about a casino robbery (plus I have a feeling the casino robbery is actually the first battle). I'm worried about driving the plot off the rails, creating a lot of extra work for Arthur, or giving Warp too much of the splotlight by having her be the one to warn everyone of the big bad.

So I think it'd be better for Warp not to be taken seriously, at least at first, at least not by the majority of the characters. She might resist your mind reading (Legacy's an unknown quantity, so she wouldn't trust him not to mess with something else in there). If you overpower her anyway, there might be concerns about whether the memory is real or implanted. After all, Warp has never displayed the ability to turn back time by the amount she did. Or Legacy might feel unwilling to trust the memory anyway; he has, after all, seen humanity's glorious future.

I guess this all depends on what Arthur and the rest of you want to do. :)

Just to be clear, I'm waiting on Omega Girl to post before I move things along.

Also, I imagine things might go down like this

Warp: The world's going to end soon!

Everyone else: How do you know this?

Warp:I'm from the FUTURE!

Everyone else: How does the world end/how do we stop it?

Warp:I have no idea/I have no idea.

Everyone else: Maybe we should deal with the immediate and clear problem of supercriminals robbing and looting a building with civilians inside.

This crossed my mind today as I was contemplating the long weekend.

In M&M if you punch a guy, and he fails his resistance checks, he gets easier and easier to KO by way of Bruises. Bruises are typically annotated as -1 Toughness Checks, is that correct, or are they -1 Resistance checks?

For example is Legacy, with his DC 25 Mental Damage (against Will) inflicting Bruises which reduce the targets Toughness Checks, or inflicting a base -1 Resistance Penalty vs subsequent damage, whether Toughness or Will. Also, do Bruises stack, ie. Gladius lays some villain out for a single Bruise, then Legacy pops him with a Mental Blast, is the villain at a -1 Resistance vs the Mental Blast, even though Gladius' punch was against his Toughness?

Just some random mechanical thoughts that hadn't crossed my mind ... obviously haven't played a psychic in this system before!

Thanks in advance.

Well, the description for a first degree fail is a -1 penalty to further resistance checks against Damage. However, the text then goes on to call those penalties to Toughness checks.

Personally, I feel Damage is Damage. So if someone takes a -1 penalty from Damage, Resisted by Fortitude, they'd still have a -1 penalty to Toughness checks against Damage. Same with Will. And yes, Damage from different kinds of Resistances 'stack'.

Ok, so we've waited long enough. Gonna move on without Rescue and Omega Girl.

Glad I picked 7 characters instead of 6.

Wait, what? I replied a while ago. I thought the game had died because here hadn't been any posts.

Huh, I don't see any post by you in the IC thread.

Is that problem just on my end?

To be fair to OG, the IC thread wasn't announced. I only noticed it because I was bored and was checking ATT obsessively.

ZG, I'm a little fuzzy-did Legacy contact the cops too with his mind-speech? Cause if so, you should probably roll a Persuasion check.
