Since we were given the privilege of suggesting powers I thought a thread should be made solely for the purpose of suggesting and debating which powers should be added to the new fpl.

 

My first suggestions would be Power Mimicry, Skill Copy, Power Negation

Self-Detonation could be fun. Personal Domain could also create some interesting possibilities, but you'd have to have a Cosmic-level character for it to make sense. Vampirism or some equivalent thereof really needs to be added. Finally, Matter Ingestion.

Vampirism already exists "Bio-Vampire" and "Psychic-Vampire".

For the full "vampirism" package, you need multiple powers.

Power Negation => Resistance.  No longer exists for a reason.

Self-Detonation => Concussive

Personal Domain => Irrelevant because it isn't Khazan

Matter Ingestion => composite of Binding (stuff them in your mouth), a defense power that works from the inside, and standard Decay (digest them)

Age Acceleration => Decay

Juggernaut Momentum => Berserk (while charging)

Skill Copy => I have a character in the pipeline who implements this with Mental Vampire

I think the problem with Power Negation and Resistances is it creates situations where a player may taken a fire resistance vs. a fire based character but the fire based character still wins because it's better written and people get butt hurt over it. I LIKE resistances because they can add flavor but they can also be created via other skills like energy absorbation

 

Skill Copy is something I've been hoping for a while

 

Personal domain SHOULD be a combo of powers

 

Also, LUCK DAMN IT

People getting butt-hurt has never stopped us from doing something before.

Resistances were removed due to technical issues if I remember right. It was a hassle to code the bit where the negated power didn't appear in the fight page or something like it used to be in the old FPL.

I liked Resistances and bringing those back would be nice. In some fashion, definitely not in the You Can't See That Section, Story Ruining form of the past. But just like as a defensive power.

 

Power Mimicry could be nice, if perhaps difficult to delineate in terms of Standard, Superior, Supreme.

 

Luck would be cool.

Since everything is based on story, I see no reason power negation can't be included.

I like luck. Could lead to some fun characters.

 

Bone manipulation, or widen that to body manipulation.

Some of the previous powers are getting removed and some (quite a few) new ones added.  But the main thing is that it can be changed as needs be.  Should be pretty easy to pop new powers in in the future. 

 

But whatever is in will need a link to a power in the Superpower Wiki  (which is no big deal since every power ever is in there and cross referenced).

I agree with self detonation, Momentum and age acceleration and I can see where you are going with skill copy (kinda).

As for Matter Ingestion, all that power combining could be avoided with Dimension Storage.

Personal Domain could be a combination of sensory, manipulation, beast control/necromancy powers.

Skill Copy and Power Negation are much like Chi powers in my mind. Its potential lies in the creator's hands.

 

Also, LUCK DAMN IT

Probability Manipulation has basically been assured.

Sure, resistances can make a comeback.

 

I wouldn't write any special code to deal with them though like in the past.  They can just sit on the character sheet as any other power.  Also the options for resistances will probably be limited to the user selecting a rank and then describe what the character resists.  I'm not going to put in special code in the character creator for it, besides it just being a Defense power.

Does that mean that in two months, if I realize there's a power I want that none of the listed powers covers, something can be added that makes sense for it?

 

Does that question make sense?

I'm personally against Chi powers. It feels like a combination of a lot of other powers which can be taken one at a time. Any effect that Chi powers could give a guy are already covered.

 

What about Green Thumb? That's a power effect that might not really be anywhere.

Communications or Commander would be close to what you'd want
