?????

I thought Abilities were 2 power points per rank ???

Unless I am missing something I get 38 points for Grugg's Character's Ability Points Score!

I do need to get some sleep

Yep, yep... Grugg

Grugg,

A couple of notes about your character.

1) You have 24 ability points distributed amongst your abilities, which would cost 48 power points. However, you have no Stamina, so you gain an extra 10 power points. This would make your total spent in the Abilities section to be 38 power points.

2) In the defense section, my math says you spent 14 power points: 3 (dodge) +4 (parry) +7 (will) = 14 points.

3) With your defenses, because you are immune to fortitude and because your combined fortitude and will defenses cannot be more than 16 at PL 8, I'm not sure if your Will needs to be limited to 8. The reason why I say this is because when an effect doesn't require an attack roll, the effect's DC is limited to the power level. I'm not sure if the same applies here. Skari-dono? DM ruling on this?

4) In your powers section, I think all the immunities covered under life support are already covered by your Immunities [Fortitude effects]... so, you don't need Immunties [Life Support] (Hurray... gain 10 power points!)

5) As is, my math says you have spent 124 power points: Abilities [48-10], Defenses [14], Powers [61], Skills [8], and Advantages [3]. So, 4 points too many.

However, if you take away the Immunities [Life Support], you gain 10 points back, which would bring your total to 114 power points spent.

Which would give you 6 points to spend!

Peace,
Ayrn

This is why I get you all to double check, flipping numbers around so many times gets confusing.

Cost for Abilities

Abilities cost 2 Power Points per Rank

So the Abilities for Sam costs as follows:

Strength: 8 x 2 = 16
Agility: 7 x 2 = 14
Fighting: 5 x 2 = 10
Awareness: 5 x 2 = 10
Stamina: 3 x 2 = 6
Dexterity: 4 x 2 = 8
Intellect: 3 x 2 = 6
Presence: 4 x 2 = 8

Total is 39 Ability Points = 78 Power Points

True...

...buuuuuuut not all of Sam's final ability scores are derived solely from purchased ability points. 4 points of his strength rating come from his enhanced strength power, I only purchased 4 points as the base ability score... Soooooo, really, I only paid 70 points total for abilities and...

Abilities for Sam costs as follows:

Strength: 4 x 2 = 8 (the extra 4 points here come from enhanced strength)
Agility: 7 x 2 = 14
Fighting: 5 x 2 = 10
Awareness: 5 x 2 = 10
Stamina: 3 x 2 = 6
Dexterity: 4 x 2 = 8
Intellect: 3 x 2 = 6
Presence: 4 x 2 = 8

Total is 39 Ability Points = 70 Power Points

Heh

Plausible explanation (?) as I am still reading the Heroes Handbook that I purchased yesterday and figuring out the creation of my own Character

As Alacrity said...

...M&M can be a somewhat convoluted system where the numbers are concerned and how PP are influenced by effects, flaws, etc. Thank the powers that be for guys like Ayrn who found me a bunch of power points in places I didn't know I'd lost them.

Speaking of which, he caught another little foozle where Sam's wings are concerned so, to that end, I've adjusted once more per his advice. Edited into the most recent sheet for him above. Pending Skari's approval (and the forthcoming background fluff), that will be the final version of Samael.

Made some adjustments, someone able to double check the numbers? Also Skari, is there a rule on the Will+Fort=PL where I don't technically have a Fort?

Numbers...

Grugg,

Your numbers at up to me! And they add up to 118... which means you have 2 power points to spend!

Cool "construct"... he doesn't have much in the way of offensive features though. Your close combat attack bonus is +1 and your ranged attack bonus is +2 which would be okay if you had some area attack or perception range attack powers... but I don't see any of them listed either.

What does he do?

Also... why the singular form Morph power?

What are you up to, good sir?

Also... Grugg, a possible suggestion...

Grugg,

With such a high Intellect and so many multiple Expertise and other INT-based skills, you may want to consider just taking the "Jack-of-All-Trades" and "Improvised Tools" advantages, drop all ranks in your INT-based skills, and adding the recuped power points to Intellect.

So...

You had 2 power points remaining, plus 6 power points recovered from skills, equals 8 power points.

Add 6 points to your Intellect, giving you Intellect 15.
Add 2 points to Advantages, giving you Jack-of-All-Trades and Improvised tool.

Now you have +15 to all Expertise, Investigation, Technology, and Treatment skills... and if you need tools for the job, you can improvise.

Also, you are able to use Acrobatics, Sleight of Hand, and Vehicle skills now too as if you were trained... though, your Agility and Dexterity aren't that high, so it's not a huge bonus there.

The "Inventor" advantage would also be pretty sweet for this guy... but you'd need to recover a power point from somewhere. Creating temporary devices using technology checks. Could be fun.

Anyway... some thoughts. Do with them as you will.
