Strength (STR)

In a "Normals" campaign (i.e., any campaign wherein the Normal CHAR Maxima is automatic), this Primary Characteristic costs two points per +1 STR (instead of the usual one point per +1 STR). This changed cost also applies to any character in any other campaign who has the Normal CHAR Maxima as one of his Disadvantages (e.g., a "Normal" in a Supers campaign).

Dexterity (DEX)

(No changes...)

Constitution (CON)

(No changes...)

Body (BODY)

(No changes...)

Intelligence (INT)

(No changes...)

Ego (EGO)

(No changes...)

Presence (PRE)

(No changes...)

Comeliness (CML)

I changed the abbrievation, to make it less likely to be confused with Constitution (CON).

Physical Defense (PD)

(No changes...)

Energy Defense (ED)

(No changes...)

Mental Defense (MD)

This Power is now a Figured Characteristic. As such, it is now a Standard Power (instead of a Special Power). I've also added this to the Normal CHAR Maxima.

Speed (SPD)

I've changed the formula for this Figured Characteristic. Its base value is now 2.0 (instead of the usual 1.0). It still adds one-tenth of Dexterity (0.1×DEX), and drops any remaining fractions (after adding points), as usual. I've also modified the Normal CHAR Maxima.

Receovery (REC)

(No changes...)

Endurance (END)

(No changes...)

Stun (STUN)

(No changes...)
