The Language Barrier Generally speaking, languages are not terribly important in comic book superhero stories except as background color or occasional plot complications. Gamemasters should allow players with characters fluent in other languages the occasional opportunity to show them off or put them to good use.

If you specifically set up the language barrier as an obstacle by confronting the heroes with a language they cannot possibly understand, that should count as a complication and be worth a Victory point.

You can speak and understand additional languages. With one rank in this advantage, you know an additional language.

For each additional rank, you double your additional known languages: two at rank 2, four at rank 3, eight at rank 4, etc. So a character with Languages 7 is fluent in 64 languages! Characters are assumed to be fluent in any languages they know, including being able to read and write in them.

For the ability to understand any language, see Comprehend effect in Powers. As a standard action, you can spend a Victory point to remove one of the following conditions from an ally with whom you can interact: dazed, fatigued, or stunned.

Your minions if capable of independent thought automatically have a helpful attitude toward you. They are subject to the normal rules for minions see Minions.

Minions do not earn Character points. Minions also do not have Victory points.

Each additional rank in this advantage lets you choose an additional option, so with Precise Attack 4, all your attacks both close and ranged ignore penalties for both cover and concealment. Your total attack bonus is still limited by power level. The new target must be adjacent to you and within range of the attack.

The attacker makes a new attack check with the same modifiers as the first against the new target. If you fail a check against that hazard, you can make another immediately and use the better of the two results.

You only get one second chance for any given check, and the GM decides if a particular hazard or skill is an appropriate focus for this advantage. You can take this advantage multiple times, each for a different hazard. You may only do so at the start of combat, when you would normally make your initiative check. If more than one character uses this advantage, they all make initiative checks normally and act in order of their initiative result, followed by all the other characters who do not have this advantage.

For example, you can feint and have your target vulnerable against one or more allies next attack s , rather than yours.

Each rank in the advantage lets you transfer the benefit to one ally. The interaction skill check requires its normal action, and the affected allies must be capable of interacting with you or at least seeing the set-up to benefit from it. Create your sidekick as an independent character with advantage rank x 5 Character points, and subject to the series power level. Your sidekick is an NPC, but automatically helpful and loyal to you.

Gamemasters should generally allow you to control your sidekick, although sidekicks remain NPCs and the GM has final say in their actions. Sidekicks do not earn Character points. Sidekicks are not minions, but full-fledged characters, so they are not subject to the minion rules.

This advantage does not allow you to make routine checks with skills that do not normally allow you to do so. You can take this advantage multiple times for different skills. Targets resist with Insight , Intimidation , or Will defense. The extra attack is with the same attack and bonus as the first.

You can continue using this advantage until you miss or there are no more minions within range of your attack or your last target. A second rank in this advantage allows you to attack non-adjacent minion targets, moving between attacks if necessary to do so.

You cannot move more than your total speed in the round, regardless of the number of attacks you make. You stop attacking once you miss, run out of movement, or there are no more minions within range of your attack. Targets resist using Deception , Insight , or Will defense. This bonus also applies to the Aid action and Team Attacks. You can also throw normally harmless objects—playing cards, pens, paper clips, and so forth—as weapons with a damage bonus equal to your advantage rank and range based on the higher of your advantage rank or Strength see Ranged in Powers.
