He may cover an area the size of a Medium Burst Template for each level of this power.
Is this referring to an area which can be affected.. or the amount of area which the matter may be stretched thin to literally "cover?" I ask because we had some confusion interpreting this at our table last night (3rd SW session our group played together). The next two statements provided context clues which contributed to the confusion:
Normally this is a thickness of a few (game world) inches
The amount of material affected is shown below.
What was attempted, was our Matter Contoller tried to mold a set of double (metal) doors in a fashion that would have squished them up against the walls and moved them 5ft down the hallway, in which they had blocked, along the walls and reformed as a solid barrier. A highly situational maneuver, but one that was explored to help gain an understanding of the intended limitations of the Matter Control ability.
There was also talk of considering use of Telekinesis to impart momentum.
Is this suppose to be confusing verbiage, to empower the GM; or are we just over-thinking things?
