Range for psychic powers

Postby Pathwalker » Wed Jul 13, 2011 2:13 pm

What would be a reasonable range for pyschic powers (e.g. Mindblast)? Any visible target? Or is there a limit distancewise?

they are not given but assume have a range of Plot (in other words what works best for your story telling without giving in to the chease), but unless it states otherwise less than 20-30 yards tops, if not extended Melee range.

Perhaps have a houserule that allows characters to extend the area of influence. A number of options could be available:

1) Extend but lose 2 EP (or WP depending on the power) for each multiple (eg, 2 EP/WP for x2, 4 EP/WP for x3, 6 EP/WP for x4, etc) the range is increased by.

2) No EP/WP loss but only allow for the extension of a power's range based upon the rank of the PC.
