In the Super Powers Companion, it provides a not so detailed explanation of Devices.
The book says that the Devices(items you can put powers into) are a universal modifier.
This modifier is -1 for every 5 total power points (and part thereof) each power costs after modifiers.
My understanding is that the devices recieve a -1 modifer automatically for every 5 points inveseted into the device.
However, the examples given, read as follows:
- Devices, Super Powers Companion, Pinnacle Entertainment Group.Figure each type of power the device grants separately—with a minimum cost of 1.
Absorption, which costs 3 points, for example, costs only 2 points if contained in a device.
Armor +6 normally costs 4 points, but costs only 3 if it’s a device (power armor, a vest, and so on).
So which one is it?
Do devices get a -1 modifer even if you only use 2 points on one power?
Do they get a -1 modifer just for being on a device?
Or is there something else I'm missing here?
Any help would be great.
