Recently, I had the privilege of Jabroniville (who is an AMAZINGLY prolific build poster) give me feedback on a few character builds, and there is one I would like to throw open for discussion:
Do surprise attacks come up often enough in combat as a rule to justify a -1/rank limitation for a defensive power? e.g., if a character has Immunity to Bludgeoning damage, but needed to be aware of the incoming attack, and so was vulnerable to rear attacks (say, from a foe with Move Object or the Indirect extra) or unseen/concealed opponents? Or have you found these to be rare enough to reduce it to, say, a -2 pp Quirk. Or even disallow entirely it for a PC hero?
Anyone have a character with a similar trait? Or GMed a campaign and had players submit heroes with a similar flaw?
All my best.
