Yeah...I wanted to role play it as having to navigate his way back from the spirit world back to reality and wake up. It's a bit like taking a holiday. Die, spend sometime in heaven, than come back to life again after two weeks.
Also, as to the whole changing them to devices...well, then I would be a bit strapped for points, and I'm loathe to lower my PL for them, since that would mean having lower dodge and attack rolls. I pictured him as having the whole, moves fast, hits a hundred times with average strength to crush my enemies. the fact that I have a high attack bonus and the multiattack bonus allows me to play off that bit really well, and i'd rather like to keep my PL 8.
If I do convert to devices, they would look a bit like this:
Mithril Mail 6PP
Protection 3 [flaws: Removable; feats: Impervious 5]
which is different from 8ep which i can get for 2PP
Damage 10 [extras: Multiattack; feats: Penetrating 5, Split]
which is different from the 16 ep I get from 4PP
that way, with 5PP, I get both as equipment, rather than 22 PP from which i get them as devices...
Any other way to get the numbers to work in my favor? Cuz right now, I need those for my char to work, and the revelation that i won't get HP for losing equipment(i generally never use the equipment feat) is kinda worrying. any thoughts?
