DC Adventures Addendum

While the DC Adventures sourcebook is very user-friendly and detailed, we have found that there are times that a character concept needs a power or advantage that isn't covered in the way we would like. As such, we've developed our own version of the addendum to be used within the RC Universe.

Advantages:
ACCURATE NOTICE

You can treat a normally inaccurate sense as accurate for one round.


CLEAN

This Advantage imposes a +5 penalty on any Investigation checks to connect the user with the actions performed (typically a crime) at the scene.


EXTRA ACTION
Ranked [half-PL]

When you perform two standard actions in a turn, you may ignore the effects of using extra effort and without using a Hero Point once for each rank of Extra Action you posess. As with Luck, you are limited to half your Power Level, rounded down.


IMPROVISATION
Ranked [half-PL]

When you perform a Power Stunt, you may ignore the effects of using extra effort and without using a Hero Point once for each rank of Improvisation you posess. As with Luck, you are limited to half your Power Level, rounded down.


LIONHEART
Combat

You have a +5 bonus against Fear and related effects. For most, this Advantage should be used instead of Fearless.


SACRIFICE ATTACK
Combat

If one has the Advantages All-Out Attack and Power Attack one can combine them to make a sacrifice attack. When you make a sacrifice attack, you take a penalty of up to -2 on your active defenses (Dodge and Parry) and add the same number (up to +2) to the effect bonus of your attack. Purchasing the Advantage Sacrifice Attack, which still requires both All-Out Attack and Power Attack, allows for adjustments up to -5 and +5. This cannot be used with a range of Perception.


SPEED OF THOUGHT
Combat

Use Intellect instead of Agility for initiative checks


TALENTED AMATEUR
Ranked [half-PL]

When you use Beginner's Luck, you do so without using a Hero Point for each rank of Talented Amateur you posess. As with Luck, you are limited to half your Power Level, rounded down.


WITHSTAND DAMAGE
Combat

You may reduce your active defenses (Dodge & Parry) 2 ranks to temporarily increase you Toughness bonus by 2 ranks.



Powers:
DENSITY
  Effect: Growth with a ±0 Modifier 2 points per rank

You can temporarily increase your mass, gaining Strength and Stamina while becoming heavier. Density Increase modifiers are restricted by power level limits.

Each rank of Density Increase adds 1 rank to your Strength and Stamina (Constructs add 1 rank to Strength and Toughness if they lack Stamina) and adds 1 rank to your mass. Increases to your Strength and Stamina also improve related traits like your Strength Damage, Fortitude, and Toughness. There is no modification to size, speed, or skills.
