Enduring: +2 flat extra
This extra can be added to a Sustained effect. Normally it's only meant for Create, Transform, Environment, Obscure (see Power Profiles), and static Illusions; the GM may permit other effects (attack- or trait effects are off-limits). An enduring effect sustains itself for 30 seconds (time rank 2) before ceasing. The user has no further control over the effect, it becomes completely independent immediately after initiation. This also means that the effect continues working even when in an array that's switched away. Enduring is basically a simplified reincarnation of the old 2e Independent extra. I decided to recreate it in a new version, since I was unsatisfied with Secondary Effect (or Cloud area) alone (they both work fine for attack effects, but for the abovementioned ones they're quite awkward & unduly expensive) and wanted more options.
