1 character point will buy you
1 point in a attribute
10% in a skill
Buy you a Advanced skill at the base level
Powers cost a variable number of character points per rank.
While working on the blast power it struck me, should I include a power point cost on these powers? The power point system from BRP always struck me as very limiting and cost inefficient.
This is what I have so far for my "improved" blast/ energy projection power.
2 points per rank
Base Range: 15 meters
Power Point Cost: 1 per level
You can make a damaging ranged attack. When you purchase this power your character gains the Combat Style Blast, which starts off as DEX+POW. Make a Blast Combat Style roll. The attack deals 1D3 damage per rank in Blast to a random hit location. During character creation or when you upgrade this power you have the option to sacrifice a level of damage per rank to either: Increase the range of the Blast power by 10 meters, or to increase the blast power damage die up one step. For example Firebrand takes 6 ranks in blast, one of those ranks is used to boost his damage dice to a D4, another rank is used to boost the range 10 meters. His blast does 4D4 damage and has a range of 25 meters.
