Re: On being Feared

Re: Small Particles with TK

You could use the bucket perk idea for this instead of Area Effect.

Re: Fast forward cyberpunk action game

Flash Step which us increased Basic Move limited to Step only is one way, Ghostly movement is another common build for that.

Re: [Basic] Is a quarterstaff obviously a weapon?

Re: Anti-Drone defenses?

They may have problems with facial recognition with onboard computers but they should still have enough capability for default programs.
And a queen drone thats a bit bigger could identify targets.

Re: Inventing Combat Techniques

I'd lean this way myself, if you really want to use Invention rules ignore or reduce costs. I did something similar in my article for researching True Names.

Re: Superheroes versus Spaceships

Yep. Just because it requires multiple abilities to do it, does not make it impossible or even more difficult than it should be.

Re: Recovery from unconsciousness rules

The Recovery advantage (p. B80) is handy here, otherwise without help from someone else the character is probably out of the combat.
