Ascendant Errata

Critical Errata

Critical errata are very important rule updates that can substantively affect play. The areas affected by critical errata include five powers (Tech Control, Mind Blast, Superspeed, Cone, and Duplication and two Conditions (Slain and Unconscious) plus the rules for Real-World Limits on Ordinary Objects, Power Stunts, Defusing Bombs, and Identifying Diseases. We recommend you print this out or note it in your rulebook.

Powers

Technology Control

Page 90, Technology Control, Deep Modifier: After the sentence “…by later events.” Insert the following: “If an object has the Power with this Modifier, the object’s SPs of Deep Technology Control are capped by the user’s SPs of INS/Science (computers).”

Mind Blast

Page 121, Mind Blast: Where the text says “If the target’s Current Determination is 1 or more, the Mind Blast deals Psychic Determination Damage to the target. If the target’s Current Determination is 0, the Mind Blast deals Neural Health Damage to the target.” It should read “While the target’s Current Determination is 1 or more, the Mind Blast deals Psychic Determination Damage to the target. Once the target’s Current Determination is 0, the Mind Blast deals Neural Health Damage to the target. The character can take both Psychic Determination and Neural Health Damage from the same Attack, if the Attack reduces the target’s Current Determination to 0.”

Superspeed

Page 132, Superspeed: The rules as written do not correctly describe how Superspeed works. Substitute the following correct text as noted:

• The character adds his SPs of Superspeed to his Initiative.
• The character adds his SPs of Superspeed to his Running Speed.
• The character can add his SPs of Superspeed to his AGI and VAL for any Melee, Ranged, Ramming, or Wrestling Attacks by or against him.
• The character can add his SPs of Superspeed to his Time spent performing most solitary Extended Actions, such as stopping a moving object processing information, investigating a forensic site, or developing an invention. He cannot add Superspeed to Time spent on traveling long distances, on activities that require mental interactions with other characters, such as befriending witnesses or earning income, nor on activities where he is already using his Running Speed.
• The character using Superspeed cannot communicate with other characters (e.g. other characters seem to be speaking at a rate too slow to monitor and the character using Superspeed is speaking at a frequency too fast for them to follow.)
• The character can use Superspeed to perform Power Stunts at an SP score equal to his Running Speed (subject to Power Limit). The Hero Point cost of the Power Stunts is still based on the CP Cost of Superspeed.”

Cone

Page 139, Cone: Change “has a Width equal to the SPs of Cone divided by 2, and a Length in SPs equal to the Width + 1.” To “has a Width and Height equal to the SPs of Cone divided by 2, and a Length in SPs equal to the Width.”

Page 139, Cone: Add a new modifier between “Extra Damage Types Modifier” and “Nonlethal Modifier”.

Flat Modifier: The Cone has a Width equal to the SPs of Cone divided by 2, a Height of 0, and a Length in SPs equal to the Width + 1. Record the Power as Flat Cone. Do not change the Base Cost or Variable Cost.

Duplication

Page 159, Duplication: The power should offer a total of 2 instances of the character at 1 SP, one the “prime” version and the other a duplicate. At 2 SP, there are 4 instances of the charge (one “prime” and three duplicates); at 3 SP there are 8 instances; and so on.

Real-World Limits on Ordinary Objects

Page 226, Powers and Skills Available, Enhancement Powers: Lightning Reflexes is limited to 5 SPs.

Page 227, Weight Restrictions, Weapons (Ranged): Add the following sentence. “A weapon with a Rapid Fire Blast can have 1 SP of Blast more than its Weight would otherwise allow to represent burst fire.”

Page 227, Weight Restrictions, Weapons (Explosive): The entry should read “An ordinary explosive weapon’s Explosion cannot exceed its Weight by more than 12 SPs unless it has the Ionizing Damage Type. If so, then the weapon’s Explosion can exceed its Weight by up to 16 SPs. The weapon’s Explosion can be up to 2SP higher if its High Energy. If the weapon’s Weight is less than -3 SPs, the maximum SP is 9 (13 if Ionizing) -1 SP per 3 SP of Weight less than -3. In any case, the weapon must have either the Self-Range or Targeted modifier and cannot have the Self-Immunity modifier. The conventional limits also apply to objects with Bang, Flash, Fog, or Sound Cloud.”

Power Stunts

Page 265, Power Stunt Declaration. “The SP score of the Base Attribute -5” should be “The SP score of the Base Attribute.”

Page 267: Change the title “Emulating a Different Power from a Different Category” change to “Emulating a Primary Attribute or a Different Power from a Different Attribute”

Page 267, last paragraph: Change “If the Power Stunt involves emulating a Power from” to “If the Power Stunt involves emulating a Primary Attribute, or emulating a Power from…”).

Page 267, last paragraph: ”the emulated Power and the base Power” should be “the emulated Power or Attribute and the base Power”

Page 267, change formula HERO POINT COST (DIFFERENT POWER, DIFFERENT CATEGORY) to HERO POINT COST (PRIMARY ATTRIBUTE OR DIFFERENT POWER, DIFFERENT CATEGORY)

Page 267: Change formula (EMULATED POWER COST – BASE POWER COST) / 2, MINIMUM 5 to be (EMULATED POWER OR ATTRIBUTE COST – BASE POWER COST) / 2, MINIMUM 5

Page 270: Add a new section after POWER LIMITS ON POWER STUNTS (same level/font category) called POWER STUNTS BEYOND THE RULES and put this text:

Sometimes a player might attempt a Power Stunt that is not covered by an existing Power, Skill, Perk, or Modifier. Nevertheless, the Power Stunt might be plausible! If so, the GM should make up an appropriate Hero point cost for the Power Stunt using their best judgment. Be sure to write it down for future use. (Remember, oral rulings create precedent.)

Conditions – Slain and Unconscious

Page 275: Change “(A creature is instantly Slain when his Current Health is reduced to a negative value greater than his maximum Health, and an object is Destroyed when its Current Durability is reduced to a negative value greater than its maximum Durability).” to “(A creature is instantly Slain when his Current Health is reduced to a negative value equal to or greater than his maximum Health, and an object is Destroyed when its Current Durability is reduced to a negative value equal to or greater than its maximum Durability.)”

Page 371: Change “A character whose Current Health is reduced to a negative value greater in magnitude than half of his Maximum Health is Seriously Injured.” to “A character whose Current Health is reduced to a negative value equal to or greater in magnitude than half of his Maximum Health is Seriously Injured.”

Page 371: Change "He is considered to have an AGI, VAL, MIG, INS, RES, and Speed of 0 for purposes of DV to such Attacks.” to “He is considered to have an AGI, VAL, MIG, and Speed of 0 for purposes of DV to such Attacks.” Unconscious characters do not drop to 0 INS and RES for purposes of DV.

Page 372: Change “A character whose Current Health is reduced to a negative value greater in magnitude to his Maximum Health is Slain.” to “A character whose Current Health is reduced to a negative value equal to or greater in magnitude to his Maximum Health is Slain.”

Page 442: Change the following sections of the chart as follows:

3A. Special Effects from Nonlethal Attacks can still reduce the target’s Current Health to greater than or equal to a negative value of his Maximum Health. (Default)

3B. Special Effects from Nonlethal Attacks cannot reduce the target’s Current Health to greater than or equal to a negative value of his Maximum Health.

3C. Special Effects from Nonlethal Attacks cannot reduce the target’s Current Health to greater than or equal to a negative value of his Maximum Health, except for the following Special Effects:________________________________________________________.

4D. Everything is always Nonlethal! No Attack, Special Effect, or Damage of any sort can ever reduce a target’s Current Health to greater than or equal to a negative value of his Maximum Health.

Defusing Bombs

Page 334, Cutting the Red Wire: Cutting the Red Wire is an INS vs. Security+3 Challenge Action. The rules erroneously list the DV as just Security.

Identifying Diseases

Page 338: Where it says “On a Green or better result, the character has identified the disease’s Transmission Method and Symptoms Caused. On a Yellow result, he has also learned the disease’s Infectivity and Incubation Period. On an Orange or better result, he has identified the disease’s Type and isolated the specific microbe responsible; work on a cure is now possible.” Change to “On a Green or better result, the character has identified the disease’s Transmission Method and Symptoms Caused. On a Yellow result or better result, he has identified the disease’s Type and isolated the specific microbe responsible; work on a cure is now possible. On an Orange or better result, he has also learned the disease’s Infectivity and Incubation Period.”

Major Errata

Major errata might cause confusion during play if not noted. It includes examples where a missing sentence, word, or math error makes a given mechanic inexplicable, ambiguous, or confusing. You don’t need to print this out, but if a reference in the rulebook seems confusing, this errata might clear it up.

Page 274, first Example: Change “If he succeeds on the Challenge Check, Jack Hammer will be able to push the train at a Speed of 4 + (12 – 5) = -3 SPs for 0 or more SPs of Time.” to “If he succeeds on the Challenge Check, Jack Hammer will be able to push the train at a Speed of 4 - (12 – 5) = -3 SPs for 0 or more SPs of Time."

Page 275, first Example: Change “His AV for the Challenge Check is 8 (his MIG) + 6 = 14. His DV for the Challenge Check is 8 (object Weight) + 7 (object Speed) = 15. Therefore his RV is 14 – 15 = -1.” to “His AV for the Challenge Check is 8 (his MIG). His DV for the Challenge Check is 8 (object Weight) + 7 (object Speed) - 6 = 9. Therefore his RV is 8 – 9 = -1.”

Imagine that the Graniteer were having a coffee at a café when The Deplatformer goes off a distance of 4 miles away (12 SPs). The Magnitude in SPs of the earthquake that strikes the café is 26 – (12 x 1.5) = 8 SPs. He takes an Automatic Action to suppress the tremors around himself to 0 SPs. The effect shields an area within a radius of (12 – 8) = 4 SPs, or about 80 feet. At 6 SPs away from the Graniteer, the earth is shaking with a Magnitude of 3 SPs. At 8 SPs (a quarter-mile) from the Graniteer, the tremors have a Magnitude of 6 SPs, and at 10 SPs (a mile), the tremors are back to their local maximum of 8 SPs. The Graniteer may continue to expend an Automatic Action each Page for the entire Duration of the quake (16 Pages) to keep the local area protected.

on p. 463 the line ‘During her second tour in Iraq, she saw an entire convey …’ should read ‘During her second tour in Iraq, she saw an entire convoy …’

BFF’s writeup, p. 451:
“…much to his surprise, the enforces agreed.”
(That should be “enforcers.”)

Not sure if this would qualify as Errata per se because I might be missing something. On page 73, I’m trying to follow the “Power Modifiers” first example box (Let’s imagine…) and the arithmetic doesn’t add up to me. Teleport has Base 50, Variable 10. Base is only increased by by Blinking +25 for a total of 75 in the last line, this makes sense. Variable is increased by Blinking +4, Hyperkinetic +8 and Third-Party +2 for a total of 24, but the last line says total is 18. I can see how to get to 18 (maybe only the highest applies, maybe the cost of Hyperkinetic includes the +4 for Blinking in the cost, and it is mutually exclusive with Third-Party so it is used as the largest value) but it’s not really clear how I would determine that.

Apologies if this has been reported before, I didn’t see it, and perhaps I just missed something in trying to absorb a new rule set.

That looks like an error. Thanks for the keen eye!

Minor Errata

The following errata is unlikely to affect gameplay. It is included here for the sake of completion.

Credits

Add David Harrison to the list of copy editors.

Story Errata

In a few places, names and dates from earlier drafts of the backstory were accidentally retained. These errors are:

In the article, “Video appears to show Army Hospital Hit by Missile,” “Wiki Leaks” should be “WikiFree”

In the article “White House Roundtable”, “Dr Ferro” should be “Dr Lindgren”.

Page 407: “Michael Croft” should be “Tige Coffey”

Page 408: “WikiLeaks” should be “WikiFree”

Page 409: “WikiLeaks” should be “WikiFree”

Typos

The remainder of the errata are simple typographic or typesetting errors. The only thing to pay attention to here is that most superscript and subscript was inadvertently deleted from formulas on page 222 to 226. Apart from that, you don’t need to worry about this unless you are short of other things to worry about.

Page 65: Under Power Limit: “…creating thematic character…” change to “…creating thematic characters…”.

Page 81: Under “Modify…”, where it reads “In If the”, it should read “If the.”

Page 98: Hyper-Immune System, under Preventative Modifier, Add “After” before “applying all other modifiers…”.

Page 133, Superspeed Example: “Ranging Attacks” should be “Ranged Attacks”

Page 136: Where it says “If applied to an object, the object must have some means of detecting the approaching character of object (typically 1 SP or more of Radio Blindsight)." “Of object” should be “or object.”

Page 153, Quake, third paragraph, first sentence: Change “(where ‘6” is directly back at the character)” to “(where "6” is directly back at the character).” [e.g. the first ‘ should be “]

Page 154, Quake, Variable Radius Modifier: Change “AV Increase the Variable Cost by 4 and record the Power as Variable Radius Quake.” to “Increase the Variable Cost by 4 and record the Power as Variable Radius Quake.”

Page 193, Protector, Example: " sends him flying a Distance equal to the SPS…" should be " sends him flying a Distance equal to the SPs…".

Page 209, 5% Refund Modifier entry: Change “Automatic Auction” to “Automatic Action”.

Page 210: Change “The Deprived of Device and Destruction of Device Vulnerable States cannot be used reduce the CP cost of an object as such.” to “The Deprived of Device and Destruction of Device Vulnerable States cannot be used to reduce the CP cost of an object as such.” [“used reduce” is being changed to “used to reduce”, there’s a missing “to”]

Page 210: Change “Otherwise, a character’s destructible Device has SPs of TOU equal to the sum of (Device Weight x 1.5) + (Character’s Power Level / 4).” to “Otherwise, a character’s destructible Device has SPs of TOU equal to the sum of (Device Weight x 1.5) + (Character’s Power Limit / 4).”

Page 211: Change “A character cannot select a Damaged Vulnerable State other than “any Damage” if his MIG/Super-Stamina exceeds his (Power Level / 2) – 2.” to “A character cannot select a Damaged Vulnerable State other than “any Damage” if his MIG/Super-Stamina exceeds his (Power Limit / 2) – 2.”

Page 224, third Example: All the subscripts and superscripts are missing from the formula. This box should read: “A grenade has 0.2kg of TNT equivalent. Its Damage is therefore log2 (680 x 0.20.5). That is 8.25, so a grenade has 8 SPs of Explosion. The 50-megaton Tsar Bomba exploded with the equivalent of 50 billion kilograms of TNT. Its Damage was therefore log2 (680 x 50,000,000,0000.5 or 27.2, so the Tsar Bomba had 27 SPs of Explosion. Boom!”

Page 225, first Designer’s Note: “the square root of kinetic energy or mass0.5 x velocity “ should be “the square root of kinetic energy or mass0.5 x velocity”
