Re: Another Q. about Area Effect and Affects Others

Note that defenses are a special case. One level of AO is sufficient to cover everyone that fits into your area, paid for by the AE. (Powers 108, 2nd para.) As the 1st paragraph on that page says,...

Re: Force Field, Area Effect, Affects Others

Powers p107, where Affects Others is generalized to apply to Advantages other than just Shrinking. Affects Others normally requires touching the character with the ability. Area Effect is needed...

Re: GURPS Hydra Problem

Isn't that already part of Duplication? Dupes are created "each possessing your full knowledge and powers", which would include Duplication. Mind, the each dupe counts against the character limit...

Re: How do time-travelers calculate the date?

No, this is what happens when you ask a perfectly reasonable question on this forum. There's a whole army of us to do the overthinking for you!

Re: How do time-travelers calculate the date?

How do time-travelers travel through time? The easiest answer is that their time machine tells them, because time travel involves measuring your movement through time.

Assuming we have some...

Re: Real-Life Weirdness

Re: Can the same NPC be both an Ally and Enemy to a PC?

You can certainly build it that way.

If the Phantom Thief is an Enemy, then there's some reason he has it in for the superhero, personally, and devotes some significant portion of his time and...

Re: Mitigator Schedule...

I don't know of any other "regular dose period" Mitigator examples. Pyramid is the main source I don't have, though my PDF collection is far from complete even otherwise.

The only Mitigator I...

Re: Sorcery is the only sensible source of strength

Do you mean to have a separate limit of 5 wishes per character, or to count a wish (presumably an ongoing permanent effect like a stat change) against the limit of 5 magic items, so that a character...

Re: Mitigator Schedule...

Too infrequent to be a Disadvantage. If we continue that progression, it will come out to something like 75 years between treatments. (Dropping the "common named time interval" pattern for a 5-ish...

Re: Real-Life Weirdness

First thing I thought when I saw the canopy was "AT-6". It gets used way too often as the generic enemy airplane stand-in in TV and movies.

So, it's really a triple-layer disguise. Those who do...

Re: Claim to hospitality (earned by deeds)

The payback that's part of CtH is small. It's not "render all aid possible" if someone comes to the PCs. It's just the same claim they have on others -- better reaction, a crash pad, maybe a...

Re: [AtE] Black Powder vs Smokeless

Certainly I have no good practical sense of how this was done. But could you not just melt the lead at the bottom, then haul up your crucible, slide in your basin of water (or flood the bottom of...

Re: [AtE] Black Powder vs Smokeless

If you have pulleys to lift the lead, you could lift workers -- just not all the workers.

But more simply, most or all of the workers stay at the bottom. They haul up the lead with those pulleys,...

Re: How would you do this anime trope?

The problem comes from the fact that Super Jump is not Move. A long jump takes more than one turn (5, in fact), which the ability rules work backward to give you a Move value and thus a step.

Re: Planetary Mass Computers

"Complexity" is an unfortunate term. Problems that require a lot of processing power can do so simply because of scope, not because the algorithm itself is complex. It might be a pretty simple loop...

Re: Ghostly Possession rules from GURPS VOODOO

Good eye.

Just in case anyone out there wants to look it up, it's actually in Psionic Powers, not Powers, in the build for Drain (Attribute).

Re: Altered Time Rate Feint?

The dangerous flip side of this logic is that the feint by the speedster ought to apply to more than one of their own attacks. With ATR 7, you Feint once, then Attack (say) three times, if not six,...
