Default Compartmentalized Mind and not duplicate powers

If you have a Telekinetic with Compartmentalized Mind so they can do several things at once but each compartment does not get the whole power what Limitation value would that be. Total TK is 300 pounds but that's total across all compartments not for each as RAW has.

I'm confused. Are you asking what the value would be if the TK level were divided between them?

If I understand you right, this would probably just be a -20% limitation of "Divided between compartments" if there's two.

I'd just borrow Shared Resources from Duplication.

That's about what I was thinking but the following is almost RAW. Thanks.

Ah, I figured that there would be something RAW that I wasn't remembering. Shared Resources it is. Thanks.

Does Compartmentalized Mind on its own actually double your TK capacity? Like if you buy 300lbs worth of TK and then get CM could your minds work together to lift 600lbs?

As far as I know, yes, that's exactly how it works.

Pretty much. And you would combine the BL of all compartments working together to determine your effective level for the purposes of moving an object at speed or telekinetically smacking somebody around with a Jeep.

Interesting. So there's a break-point at which you should buy CM instead of more TK, especially with a TK-only modifier. I have a couple of NPC builds I will have to revisit.

I don't know that I'd describe it as a break point. you want to balance the TK vs. the CM. My tinkering is saying that about 1/4 of the points should go towards CM, rounding down in general.
