  • MnM 3e Should Powers (X per Rank) and their Extra/s (1 per Rank) always equal?

    When creating a Powers (X per Rank) with an Extra/s (1 per Rank), are the Extras always supposed to be equal in Ranks with the power?

    EX: Healing (Rank 5) with Extras Persistent 5 and Restorative 5 = 15 CP

    If not how does having varying extras effect a power?

    It really depends on the effect. Some things make sense with reduced ranks, others not so much.

    Healing 5 (Persistent 5, Restorative 2)
    Persistent is not ranked: it's a single point (a flat extra). Restorative 2 would limit how much you could restore of the lost trait to 2 ranks so that's a workable possibility. If you had the extra at full rank it could restore up to 5 points lost to Weaken.

    For example, it's fine to build something like this: Ranged Damage 10 (Burst Area 7). Reducing ranks on the Area is straightforward.

      As a note, there are extensive discussions on parrial area attacks. While its simple to understand, many GMs have particular interpretations on that particular partial extra.

        It's hard to make a blanket "Yes/No" on this question. It's going to depend on the modifer(s) in question and the concept of the power the effect is building.

        I make use of Partial Extras and Flaws all the time, for what it's worth.

          You can use Restorative Healing 2, or normal Healing 5. Persistent is a flat extra, so only 1 rank is needed.
