Any thoughts?
NPC-only powers do not have to have a point value. They're plot devices.

If an ability where you fail a HT check can cause instant death (equivalent at LEAST to having your HP reduced by 100%) then a less expensive version where a failed HT check reduces HP by 50% or 25% (ie Demi or Gravity in Final Fantasy) seems pretty reasonable.
