Multiple Effects inside Alternate Form

Postby Aerlock » Mon May 21, 2012 2:47 pm

Is this supposed to be a no-no? I am trying to use this for organizational and display purposes to put certain types of powers inside their own little "container" within Alternate Form but it seems that I am unable to do this and have to manually change the output to reflect my setup. Is there a way around this?

Nothing against it in the rules. Within 2E, you're limited to working with containers evenly multipliable by 5. Within 3E, I believe you can stick it right in there.

I thought it was rules legal but Hero Lab isn't letting me make the choice to add Multiple Effects container within Alternate Form. I can use Linked Effects but then its not showing correctly on the sheet because I've got stuff like Concealment, Enhanced Trait, Extra Limbs, etc. all in there and all with different activations and durations which isn't strictly correct. Is this one of those things in the rule set that needs fixing like Elongation not adding to the Grab DC?

Which edition are you asking for? I was able to nest two Alternate Forms in 2E, although it does invoke an amusing bug regarding the cost of the inner Alternate Form.
