[SWEX] Powers Duration

#1 Postby Dwarin » Tue Jul 10, 2012 7:43 am

Given the PP costs in rounds, powers duration is not tracked in minutes or hours. Is that so?

Yep. Unless a power specifically lists its duration in a different increment (minutes, 10 minutes, hours, etc.), then its duration is in rounds. See the base description of Powers (pg. 108 of SWD)....

"Duration: How long the power lasts in rounds. A power with a Duration of 1 lasts until the heroes’ next action. A Duration of 2 means it lasts for two actions, and so on."
