Ehanced Powers

Post by Jhyarelle » Tue Jan 14, 2014 11:23 am

Just want to know if this is ok. I mean I understand using it as Enhanced Strength for the purpose lifting.

Can I use it on powers?
Ex: Speed 8 can move at speed up to 250 MPH.
Enhanced Speed 2 for the purpose of long distance travel. (Speed 10: 1000 MPH)

Yes. Particularly since Speed is not a PL-limited power.

That's what the Stacks Extra is for.

I often use it for powers that are the same, but one is in an array, and one isn't, sometimes with extras like a character that can AE a higher rank Impervious force field off of their Create.

Really???? I'm serious, I didn't know that there are powers that are not restricted to PL limits. Is there a list of these powers or do I have to look them up individually in the book/pdf ?

If it doesn't have a saving throw, or a related attribute, or skill, then it is not restricted by PL limits. So for example, movement speeds are not restricted by PL.

Um, if you are talking about 3E, there is no such extra: Powers automatically stack, its only equipment that doesn't stack, to my knowledge.

He may be referring to the Herolab construct, which makes the math work out for powers that stack on top of each other.
