Uh, no those would be at 20W (10W2-10). IIRC weaponthane is around 10W so she is more than competent.

I'm not being deliberately obstructive; I'm just trying to show that HW does cover a lot of 'situations' people don't think it covers and before we start discussing new rules I think there is more call for better showing how the existing rules DO handle the situation.

I am hopeful that the forthecoming Heroes book will help a lot in providing examples of how to use the system.
