  • Powers, Trappings, and Evasion

    Do the rules have any relevant guidelines on allowing blast, burst, havoc, and similar area powers allowing character to Evade the effects?
    I hope you find the above post useful. And not insulting, because I was trying to be helpful, not insulting; being a pedantic jerk, that isn't always clear.

    Just this per Evasion <italics added>, "Some attacks are slow or require the user to “telegraph” their delivery, like flamethrowers or dragon’s breath. Such attacks state they may be “evaded.” If an attack doesn’t say it can be evaded, it can’t—victims are simply hit if the attack is successful and take damage."

    Those powers don't state they can be evaded, so they can't...barring specific house or Setting Rules of course.

    Hope that helps.
