14 New Specialty Lines
I have been trying to get a bunch of new Specialties into the game as the requests come in. They have been stacking up but I found some time to add them! For the most part these are new. I do some internal testing before they are released. If any issues are discovered with them please let me know so they remain balanced.
Many are replacing and enhancing the current Power Duration Specialty (Duration Increase). This particular Specialty proved to be too strong in it’s current form. Therefore I have broken it out into a group of Specialties that target specific Power Effects as well as the duration and strength of the extension.
These are designed very similar to the Leadership line of Specialties. Where the base Leadership Specialty is taken then additional Specialties can be taken to enhance the Leadership.
All of these Specialties are advanced optional Specialties due to the active nature used during a game. These are not auto calculated on the character sheet. Instead, they are listed under Active Abilities.
The basic formula for this breakout is as follows.
Power Effect Duration Increase: This Specialty increases the Duration of 1 effect of the Power by 1. Each step Minor thru Superior increases the Duration.
Specialties to increase strength of effect. Each step Minor thru Superior increases the strength of the effect above 1. (Maximum of +6 at Superior)
Specialties to include more Effect above the 1 included with the base Specialty.
Power: -4 to Defenses, Attack, and Speed for 3 Rounds.
Specialty: Lesser Penalty Power Duration Increase: Grants this Power 3 additional rounds of effectiveness for 1 penalty effect from the Power. The extended round penalty will be reduced to 1 instead of 4. I could choose to extend the Defense Penalty but not the Attack or Speed penalty.
By adding the Specialty: Lesser Extended Penalty Increase: Grants the ability to increase the extended penalty to 3 instead of 1. The penalty cannot increase beyond the original Power effect’s penalty number. The extended round penalty will now be 3 instead of 1 for the two additional rounds.
By adding the Specialty: Lesser Increased Extended Penalty Effects: Grants the ability to increase the amount of effects affected by 2. This now allows the Attack and Speed penalty to be included in the extended power penalty effects.
In summary, if the Power listed above is modified by these three Specialties the final bonus effect will be an additional 3 rounds of a 3 penalty to Defense, Attack, and Speed. So for the first 3 rounds (duration of the Power) the targets will be -4 to Defense, Attack, and Speed. Then for the next 3 rounds (duration of the Specialty boosts) the target will be -3 Defense, Attack, and Speed.
