In mutants and masterminds is the dodge bonus considered a part of the defense bonus when figuring out if you are above the max for your power level, thanks in advance.

Which edition are you asking about? I can answer your question if it's 2nd. Don't know how it works in 1st or 3rd.

>> No.14095118

I think the answer to my own question is no it does not, but im making a character for a game and i want to make sure im not cheating.

>> No.14095129

yes 2nd edition, sorry about leaving that out.

>> No.14095154

>> No.14095162

>> No.14095171

Then the answer is no. You don't even buy a dodge bonus, it's calculated as half of your defense bonus. You lose the dodge bonus half of your defense when stunned, flat-footed, etc.

I don't mean to be a dick, but you could have found that out by just looking it up in the book.

>> No.14095176

>> No.14095195

well more what i was looking at was the power shield, it adds to your dodge bonus but i wasnt sure what the limit on that was.

>> No.14095212

and i dont consider anyone actually giving me advice a dick, so thanks

>> No.14095231

dumpin more pics as thanks.

>> No.14095246

Ah, ok. Yeah, that's still limited by you power levee's limit on defense; what you're doing is buying defense cheaper than the straight up defense bonus, with the drawback being that it does fuckall for you when you're surprised.

>> No.14095258

you see too many dicks on /tg/ who feel like this is their personal answer repository and get pissed when they dont get the answer, i go into this thinking im not going to get the answer and try to give pics back as a way of thanking anyone who contributes.

>> No.14095286

Ok, so just so i make sure im getting this 100% right (im going to be one of the people who knows the most about M&M which i realize is sad but makes this clarification that much more important) does that mean their is a limit on your dodge bonus or that the "shield" bonus can not bring your dodge bonus above the power level?

Any bonus to your dodge bonus (from the shield power, dodge focus feat, etc.) is counted directly towards your total defense.

So say your defense limit is 10, and you buy 8 points in defense. This means if you buy any feats or powers that add to your dodge bonus, you can only buy 2 points worth, because that would bring you up to 10.

>> No.14095403

ok thanks for that final clarification, any particular brand of pics you want, gonna post a couple more as thanks.

>> No.14095440

>> No.14095463

>> No.14095477

>> No.14095495

Oh, and to be perfectly clear, following that example, your total defense is 10, and your dodge bonus is 6, meaning that if you get caught flat-footed, your defense drops to 4 until you're not flat-footed. The dodge bonus feat/powers are cheaper than straight defense because they're not quite as good.

I don't need anything, just happy to help when it's a clarification as opposed to somebody just being too lazy to read the rules.

I have only just started reading over them and they seem like a simplified version of hero system (which i never really learned) its got some points where i got to look over the rules a couple of times to figure out what it means. this is the first time ive been unsure.

i like it because its more, come up with a character concept and see how the system can fit your idea. D&D, our groups normal game, on the other hand is, come up with a character concept and see how your idea fits into the system.
