  • MnM3e Offensive Illusions

    Illusions rank 4+ can affect multiple senses, presumably touch as well right?
    So can Illusions attack and deal damage without adding the Damage effect and just using the Illusion rank as the base damage?
    If Illusions rank 4+ can affect senses like touch what makes them different from constructs?
    Is it that these things cant affect inanimate object cause these thing can't sense them in sense?

    Ex: Can an Illusion rank 4+ punch or pick up a person or animal, but not say a box or ball?

    Nope, you have to pay for the linked and most likely Perception-ranged Damage effect.

    Touch Illusions are illusory and not solid. So you might think you're about to step on to a bridge, and it'll feel like you're on solid ground, but there won't actually be anything there to support you, so you'll fall.

    You could make an Illusion of a giant hand picking up the ball on the ground, but short of having a linked Move Object effect, the ball is still there.

      That's a good idea, I never thought about weaving Move object and Illusion together.
      Thanks for this and the Power question reply.

        The Illusion Effect is only for affecting the perceptions of your target. By itself, it can't do anything else, so if you want to inflict any other kind of condition, including damage, you need to use another Effect like Damage or Affliction or Move Object or whatever is needed, and make "illusion" the Descriptor of the power.

        If you wanted to inflict "illusory damage" so that the target truly believes that they have been hurt, behaves as though hurt but can potentially disbelief or be convinced that they were not hurt, you can use a Damage Effect as a base and add Alternate Resistance (Will) to resist the damage and Resistible by Will to disbelieve that the damage happened at all. This is actually from the Illusion Power Profile, which is arguably one of the best individual profiles if you wanted to pick it up.
