I'm sorry, but I REALLY think its foolish to say "I trust my players, ergo it doesn't matter that this action is broken"
What can I say? I'm a idiotic fool.
Asmo - Where do you get the idea that "disables if damage occurs" doesn't cause any actual damage? Nowhere is that stated, and in fact the name itself implies that damage does, in fact, occur.
I wasn't speaking about "Dsables if damage occurs", I was speaking about "Dreamscape". That doesn't do any damage for real, so I don't agree that it should be worth the +5 of "disables if any damage occurs." Being affected by illusions doesn't hurt you.
Powers like this make the game stop being fun because they "single hit kill" any and every target, especially with some of the proposed options which are, frankly, not just underpriced... they're absurd and shouldn't be allowed at ANY cost.
This is another thing I disagree with you on this particular power. I think what bothers players the most with "instant k.o" is that they're stunned/frozen in place/disabled, and thus they can't act, which takes away the fun. This action still allows you to act in the Dream World, so you're still participating in a way to the game, just not in the main action. It takes you out of the main fight, but now you have your own problems to face in the Dream World whatever it is.
About the options, you're pretty much right, and most GMs wouldn't allow them anyway... but they have happened in several movies/comics and stuff, so I included them. Like I said, I like to make rules for any power or action I see, and a good CAD of Freddy Kruegger would have this power with the last option. Even if it's overpowered... Freddy has it. So I made a rule for it. And I will make new rules for every power I see in movies or comics so that GMs can have an already made rule to reflect such powers if they want to include them in a game.
I'm kind of a power gamer, that's true. However, I know when a certain power is funnier than others, and I know this one beats being frozen solid and not being able to act, it beats being mind-controlled and attacking allies. And given to someone with enough imagination, it can make a game darn fun. I'm sure of it. ^_^ But thanks for your comments. Like I said, I knew we wouldn't agree on this, but I still made it for those who might like it.
