OK, so just as an example, a hero gets a 15 on a total and a D8 effect. He spends a PP to add a D6 effect.EldritchFire wrote:Spatula wrote:Good point about the limit on extra dice, N01H3r3. I totally missed that.
#2. You can spend PP/doom dice to add extra effect dice to your roll. Now I know that you can't inflict the same stress with the extra effect dice, but let's say that you still want to apply all the effects to the same character. For example, inflict two different kinds of stress, or inflict stress and a complication.
Does the defending character roll two reactions? Or just one, and apply its effects against both effect dice?
Just the one reaction roll. They've already reacted, and your effect dice are the, well, effect of the action roll.

IMO, the idea is that you can make your dice pool a respectable size for those situations where you can't add in a power or a specialty. Note that specialties effectively get versatile for free: you can use an expert specialty as D8 or 2D6, and a master as D10, 2D8, or 3D6. I believe that's probably because many specialties will be used on their own, and not in conjunction with your power sets. So I don't know if there's an in-game explanation for it.Newtsy wrote:Would someone mind clarifying what the idea behind the "Versatile" SFX is? How would one describe a use of that?
