Designer's Notes
Last but not least is the Human Torch. Like the others, the advantage levels can be notably lower because on the log scale 24d is similar to a 5000d attack.

He has quite a few different attacks, but he's fairly vulnerable as well since his DR only protects him against physical projectiles. Among his effects is the ability to rapid fire fireballs, fire a flame jet, create a fire ring/cage/wall, roast everyone close to him, blind everyone around him (as well as himself), or just adjust the temp up to 240 degrees at 24 degrees/sec. He can also go nova, but that will effectively use up most of his fatigue as well as knock out all flame powers for 15 sec (including his aura).

Torch is effectively immune to most heat/fire damage. If an attack does at least 2 points of damage, he can use it to heal the 1 injury (up to 100 points of damage per turn). Otherwise, the DR fire/heat blocks it. He is immune to heat fatigue effects.

The tactics are pretty simple: stay away, blast away. Dodge using aerobatics (effective dodge 12) and even AoD when necessary. Flight high enough to avoid melee with anyone that won't avoid the aura, but close enough that a fall won't kill him. Otherwise he's fairly well developed as a playboy prankster that loves cars.
