    That's the houserule I go with as well, but unless you adjust the drain in Corrosion/Disintigration back to its stand alone description, that makes a broken power, even more effective.

    My thought is, in writing up Corrosion, the designers simply took into account non-impervious toughness, thus the cost/effect of both powers 1pt/rank drain vs. 1pt/rank protection is even. This means extras like impervious are left to the GM and players to adjust for.

      Yeah, his effective toughness is +10 at this point, not daunting for PL 8s-it's just his imperious that makes him a pain to those who aren't damage shifted or lack Power Attack.

      I love what 3E did with caps-modifying. If I ever run a 2E game again I'll houserule that in.

        Yeah, I totally put a cap on how much Impervious PCs could have. I was even nice enough that I held any NPC to that same rule.

          It sounds halfway decent. I'm mulling over situations where it would be okay, and... I dunno. A feature might work better. I mean, a low-powered NPC whose entire power is that their skin is unbreakable by conventional means... 6 ranks or so of impervious with no bonus to the Toughness save, just to represent them being "bulletproof"? I dunno. A feature could just be that their skin is unbreakable, but still permit them to take damage and might be a better option.

            You could handle that by applying a Limit where the Protection ranks don't work against attacks with Penetrating. Anything that gets through the skin is going to hurt a lot.

              Another idea might be to limit the Imperious to Physical Only. That way, with say, Impervious 6, he could ignore a full mag from an AUG in the face but still worry about somebody like Ion.

              I'll be honest, as much as it was a leftover of D&D mentality, I liked the idea of starting PCs at a low PL (like 4 or so) and then working up to 8 in a few sessions.

                      Eh, not so much the cape for me as the mask - highly resembles Magneto's helmet and all. Ok, and the cape added on makes it worse.

                        I like it, a lot actually. People are too down on capes, lately.

                        As far as looking like a villain....well, let's say you're a Londoner, in March 2007. You see two shadows in front of you, cast from above and moving fast. You look up, and you see two men covered in flames, one red, one blue. They may or may not have swords of the same fire in their hands.

                        Now, depending on your religious background, criminal status, and feelings on SPBs in general, you may think those two look like God's own Angels, come to protect the British Isles. Or you might think they look like dangerous, completely out of control, violent-minded thugs who target criminals because they are also criminals and are just looking to get rid of the competition.

                        Or maybe you think they're just bright t***s spoiling your lunch walk and causing everyone around to gaze up, slackjawed like a bunch of sheep. And you just know they're gonna get tomorrow's headlines from whatever act of nonsense they get up to, pushing what really matters ("Its the economy, Stewpot!") to the second page.

                        Its all relative.

                          It is a helmet, His uniform & helmet provide his commlink, GPS, and immunity to suffocation, environmental cold and low pressure (the immunities so he can fly at high altitudes).

                          I always thought it looked a bit like Citizen V's mask though myself.

                            See? My point is proven.

                            Anyway, fyi, I may pop in as a new player. Discussions are being held with Michuru.

                              Kewl. There are a lot of european nationalities unrepresented (even counting all the NPC's) and it's been awhile since we were at maximum capacity.

                              I have no idea what kind of powersets we're missing, except a mind reader/controller which can be hard on a GM.

                                I really like the picture. The cape looks great. I hope my comments weren't construed otherwise.
