 02-20-2018, 08:30 PM #1 Drakyrias   Join Date: Nov 2006 Supers 3e: Absorption A player wanting to build a character using this super advantage, but the question came up how does the overflow DR calculate once they have absorbed their entire 'battery' of points.

Do they have to purchase is with points like they would have enhanced themselves with normally using the Defense table for costs? I.E. Super Sponge has Absorption (Crushing) 6 and builds up his full 36 pts of absorption as he is struck by Dinospike over a few rounds. Dinospike!'s next hit does 3d dmg, rolling 11pts. How is this resolved?

As long as the battery is full, you do not roll for absorption, but use a flat 2 DR. They do not have to purchase the extra DR with extra points or do anything except have the battery full to get them. The 2 DR/level is inherent part of the absorption. So when hit use following: Battery not full: Roll absorption dice and fill the battery. Battery full: Just use like 2 DR/level. So in your example: If the battery is full and there is 6 levels of absorption then the DR is 2*6=12, thus the 11 point hit does no damage. __________________ -- weby's gaming stuff: http://weby.roto.nu
