I was sure I saw rules in FATE Core about using Physique or something to push somebody one or two zones - can't seem to find it, did I imagine that, or was that written elsewhere in one of the other FATE rulesets out there?
no plus ones

- And yes it's also in SoTC - it's covered really well in there, actually.Oct 24, 2013

- Fred HicksOwnerThey certainly can be annoying. You either overcome that by also giving folks high mobility (meaning they are literally all over the map during a fight, both by choice and by force) or by making the effect optionally chosen.Oct 24, 2013

- Or have limitations that are skill/narrative (or roll driven if part of the flavour)...can Aunt May slam the Hulk? No. Can the The Hulk punch the Thing through two buildings? Yes, on Physique and Body Armour toughness of all concerned. Can Shang-Chi, Master of Kung Fu judo toss The Hulk? Yes. A mook can't do it to Daredevil though in Fate terms.
MSH has a fun talent...Martial Arts D - slam or stun opponents regardless of Body Armour..e.g. no stress, but can skill Kung Fu Fighting them all over the place if they don't resist.Oct 24, 2013
- Marvel Two In-One
PCS: The Thing and Shang-Chi, Master of Kung Fu
GM: The Hulk looks mad. In fact, he just tossed that completely and utterly spotlessly clean SUV over that small building. What do you do?
The Thing: (winceing) I'll get in his way.
GM grins, totalling likely additional property damage. "Rocky Man get out of Hulks's way"
The Thing: "Aunt Petunia's nephew ain't movin' even if you breathe on me, ugly."
GM: "Hulk smash funny looking rocky man." Rolls and gets a -1 with his Remarkable +3 Fighting.
The Thing: "That the best you can do tough guy?" rolls a -1 as well, but has Incredible +4 fighting and some Martial Arts training, so fends off the blow. "Let me show you how they do it on Yancy Street." Rolls a +0 for fighting. The Rampaging Hulk again swings wildly with a -1. The Thing is one rank better and adding +1 for Martial arts, this is a +3 or Success with Style. "Say goodbye, Junior."
The Hulk has Monstrous +6 Body Armour but the Thing's strength is Monstrous +6 so good enough in this case to send the not so Jolly Green Giant flying through the next building and away from fleeing bystanders. Both sides of the building give in as +6 Body Armour is way more than the +3 of usual building concrete. [A roll mechanic would be Endurance etc. vs the +6 strength of the Thing to get from not bothered to through multiple zones(buildings) if a bad result.]
Shang-Chi bows. "Most excellently if expensively done, Mister Grimm. I believe it is my turn next, upon his return."Oct 25, 2013
