  • Rules for Opposing Mind Controls

    Are there any rules for two characters battling for the control of one poor victim's mind?

    If not, are there any home rules that you have used that worked out well?

    Sounds to me like a prime example for Opposed Checks:

    Originally posted by Heroes Handbook
    Opposed checks offer the Gamemaster a useful tool for comparing the efforts of two characters quickly and easily. This applies not only to skills, but also powers and, in some cases, abilities. If two or more characters compete at a particular task, you can resolve it with an opposed check. The character with the highest check result wins. Of course, you can play things out if you want, but sometimes itís good to be able to resolve things with a quick opposed check and move on.
    As Gamemaster, if you find yourself without a particular rule to resolve a conflict or contest between characters, the opposed check is your friend. Pick the appropriate skill, power, or ability, make checks for the characters and compare the results to see how they did.
    As they are battling for control over a third persons mind, i would allow the victim an (additional) resistance check whenever conflicting orders are given by the two mind controllers.

      Mind Controller C tries to take over the mind of Character A. Mind Controller B is current in control of Character A.

      Mind Controller C attempts to gain control first of Character A. Character A resists as normal. If Character A succeeds then it goes no further.

      If Character A fails then the battle goes between Mind Controller C and Mind Controller B.

      Since Mind Controller B is currently in control, this is treated like a nullify. Mind Controller C rolls 1d20+Power Rank vs Mind Controller B's 1d20+Power Rank. The winner is the person who attains or maintains mind control.

      That is how I do it.
