Good Day,

i am right now slowly processing through the Deluxe-Heroes-Handbook and am now a little bit stuck at "fractional costs".

In the book it is explained, that

So, if you had 0 power points per Rank, it's one Power Point for two ranks.

If you were at -1, you would get three ranks for one Power Point.

Until here i am pretty sure, i understood.

Now the book gives an example.

So, you start with Protection. One Point per Rang. (1PP --> 1 rank)

You go to Imperious Protection, which costs one additional point per rank and are at two Points per Rang. (2PP --> 1 rank)

Now it's changed to Imperious Protection limited to Blunt Physical Attacks. The limit gives you two points, so we are at a net zero.

This would mean, that the cost for the power are one point per two ranks. (1PP --> 2 ranks)

But the example says it's one point per three ranks.

Am i missing something here?

i am right now slowly processing through the Deluxe-Heroes-Handbook and am now a little bit stuck at "fractional costs".

In the book it is explained, that

If total flaws reduce an effect’s cost per rank to less than 1 power point, each additional –1 to cost per rank beyond that adds to the number of ranks of the effect you get by spending 1 power point on a 1-to-1 basis.

If you were at -1, you would get three ranks for one Power Point.

Until here i am pretty sure, i understood.

Now the book gives an example.

Example: A hero has Protection, which costs 1 point per rank. The Protection has two modifiers; the first is the Imperious extra (a +1 point per rank modifier), and the second is the flaw Limited to Blunt Physical Attacks (a –3 points per rank modifier) for a total modifier of –2. Since Protection costs 1 point per rank, the –2 modifier increases the number of ranks per power point, so the final cost is 1 power point per 3ranks of Impervious Protection Limited to Blunt Physical Attacks.

You go to Imperious Protection, which costs one additional point per rank and are at two Points per Rang. (2PP --> 1 rank)

Now it's changed to Imperious Protection limited to Blunt Physical Attacks. The limit gives you two points, so we are at a net zero.

This would mean, that the cost for the power are one point per two ranks. (1PP --> 2 ranks)

But the example says it's one point per three ranks.

Am i missing something here?
