You might be looking at someone with Affects Multiple or Activation, which have their own rank system in addition to the normal ranks on the attached Effects?If I understand correctly, a Modifier is automatically the same rank as the Effect it's attached to, but I've noticed that at least one person has a modifier of a different rank than the effect it's on. Did I miss something in that regard?
Also, if I purchase an ability and later want to raise the Rank(s) on it, must that go through the Approval process again?
Wouldn't that just be two different damage effects under the same ability, though? Like,It was mentioned in the Ability Workshop when we were discussing Whompt's weaponry, though it may need to be clarified in the Rules. And it'd be kinda dependent on the Modifier in question. Something like a Rocket Launcher which would deal more Damage on a direct hit than on people in the "splash zone"
What you'd want would be:Wouldn't that just be two different damage effects under the same ability, though? Like,
Damage 5 - Ranged
Damage 2 - Ranged, Affects Multiple, Nondiscriminating
That wouldn't require different ranks in the modifiers.
