As Mystrich pointed out, I am looking to simulate the current version of Scarlet Witch. During House of M, her abilities had been boosted to the level of someone like the Sentry due to the interference of Doctor Doom. For that ultra-powerful Scarlet Witch, I would rename the Chaos Magic power set Augmented Chaos Magic, change Expert Sorcery d8 to Master Sorcery d10 (which she could step up to d12 with SFX); I would also rename the Probability Control power set to Reality Manipulation, and add some SFX that could step up Cosmic Mastery to d12, maybe something like the following:Legate wrote:Remember that even Elemental Mastery only affects an area the size of a city; she altered reality for the entire PLANET when she created House Of M, and then wiped out the mutants.
I would also have to have a serious discussion with the player before letting him have this version.SFX: Rewrite History: When Scarlet Witch has d8 or higher Mental Stress, step up her Mental Stress to step up or double Cosmic Mastery for one action. If the action fails, the Watcher must create a new Scene Distinction based on the subconscious desires of Scarlet Witch or any loved one of hers present. If the Scarlet Witch's mental stress is already d12 or higher when she uses this SFX, the Scarlet Witch is stressed at the end of this action, takes 1d6 mental trauma and is removed from the scene, while the Watcher creates a new Scene Distinction as above, but applies that same scene distinction to all subsequent scenes until the end of the Act.
I do think the Extents of Sorcery limit is appropriate, since the Scarlet Witch's basic power is supposed to be making bad luck for opponents rather than just inflicting raw damage. Instead, I think adding Mystic Blast d6 to the Chaos Magic power set is a better way to go, and she could then use d6+d8 to throw Hex-Bolts. I do like the idea of just calling it Probability Control instead of Cosmic Control, though I will see if I get more input on these ideas before going back and re-editing the original posts.Mystrich wrote:I like them, though for Scarlet Witch, I'd probably remove Extents of Sorcery (so she can use both her power sets when hex-bolting) and possibly step it up to Sorcery Mastery. Cosmic Control, I'd just outright call it Chaos/Reality/Probability Control d10.
