M&M question
james_nicoll
Could someone with a copy of Hero High tell me where they specify the default settings for points and characteristic values? I was asked if it was PL 8, 120 pts, abilities start at 9 but two at 10 but while I see the ranges given in Modifiers and Benchmarks, I don't see if they give what they actually used for the templates given.

Yes, I am sure it's there in plain print.

James, if I recall correctly, the default is just a standard PL 8 character. The lowered abilities are just a suggestion.

In fact, I asked over on the M&M boards and got that answer. To repeat it:

The archetypes all have abilities bought up from a base of 10. Elsewhere in the book, it mentions several options for ability scores.
  • Starting from a base of 10.
  • Starting from a base of 8.
  • Starting from a base of 8 except for one "gifted" ability that starts from a base of 10.
  • Starting from a base of 10 except for one "immature" ability that starts from a base of 8.

And mentions that abilities that start from a lower base can either automatically go up once the character matures, or remain the same but grant an extra power point.


For ease of use, I'll be going with "all abilities bought up from a base of 10."
