    Slow poke?

    This power concept is that you poke the moving target & transfer most of the targets speed to yourself!
    What do you think & how would you make this power better?

    Similar to Absorption.

    Affliction X (Hindered and Dazed, Immobilized and Stunned), Extra Condition, Limited Degree, Linked to Enhanced Speed X, Fades.

    I think. But that's two different power ranges.

    Linked isn't quite the right move, mechanically speaking.

    What you want is a separate Speed power with a Flaw, Limiting its use to when the Affliction is successful.

    Linked could actually work, if the intent is "they stop moving, I move". But in that case I'd be building it as Broad Reduced Range Nullify Limited to countering linked to Speed Limited to target's speed and only on successful counter.

    Why not linked to weaken which actually has a PP counting affect built in?

    Of course the inherent problem with all absorption affects is they cost the same, or more, than just buying the power straight.

    power a: speed 10; limited - PP only available as absorbed from weaken (power b); cost = 5pp
    power b: weaken 10; limited - Total PP absorbed from ALL targets cannot exceed (power a) ranks; cost = 5pp

    versus

    speed 10; cost= 10 pp.

    (Oh and you don't want linked as that only determines when a power fires. speed is powered when you move. And weaken is just a normal standard action.)

    Would this power concept work on non-living objects that move, like say a car or a bullet?
