  • Environmental Protection and Damage Field.

    Does environmental protection allow you to fly in outer space or swim deep underwater at your pace or does it only prevent you from having speed penalties when moving using natural movement? Similarly, could you fly or float in a gas giant or would you simply fall? Also, is the environment you are protected from chosen when the spell is obtained or when it is cast?

    Does damage field enhance a martial artist's unarmed damage or stack with natural weapons?

    Per the power description <italics added>, "This power allows the target to breathe, speak, and move at his normal Pace while in one normally harmful environment, such as underwater, a zero-G vacuum, the lava of a volcano, or even the heat of the sun. Pressure, atmosphere, air, etc, are all provided for.

    So the character may move their Pace while in the actual environment. So if in water, they move at their normal Pace. Now, the trapping of how it looks can vary. A magic spell might grant swimming in water while a weird science dive suit might have "hydro-induction jets."

    Chosen when cast (unless modified by trappings).
