APS question

Postby Sittingbull » Sat Nov 07, 2015 12:52 am

Why aren't all physical form APS given extraordinary PS? The vast majority of them get the bonus is why I am asking. Just looking for opinions. ^^

Well, just because you aren't flesh, doesn't make you extraordinary. I mean, come on, would you expect someone with APS: Rags...or APS: Soggy Toast... to be super strong?

APS blood, bone, coral, glass, magnet, pebbles, rag doll, vines, crystal, sand, and water all get extraordinary strength.

APS ice gets supernatural strength
APS metal, stone, and lava get superhuman

APS - Ice gets extraordinary PS according to the book on page 246 unless I am missing something.

But either way I would not do it simply because it is a balancing act to me. Trying to take powers that may be better or worse and middle ground.

Correct, I misread APS ice.

I understand the balancing act but on the solid forms the extra strength really should be a core trait and something else dropped, I would think. *Shrugs.* However, then we have Rag doll with extra strength.
