Kuro's Stealth: 1d20+8 10 to assist. And with a roll like that I'll spend that shiny new Hero Point to Reroll: 1d20+8 10, at least the reroll makes that a 20 to assist.

Did you count the +5 from Inspire? Also, it's DC 10 to give +2 I think which is the bare minimum. If you use the reroll, a 25 gives +5 to assist (I think) which is a 23 on Jin's final roll vs. the 20 your first roll would aid her to. Is that worth the HP for you?

Hmm... 18+2(assist)+5(inspire) Would make it 25, which meets the DC set for us exactly. Anything more while healthy padding, I believe would ultimately be an unnessary addition.

Still! It's a success irregardless. Since you provided narration before, I'll do my best later tonight to try and match up. Teamwork saves the day! Or at least, helps to prolong it...

Given the difficulty and the boldness might it also lower their attack?
Might be asking for too much, taking 1 vitality from the enemy army is a great feat on itself.
Still, Yahata might accomplish something on that regard on its own, godly, right.

Personally, I'm waiting for a good opportunity to take a fight correctly to their leader himself yet I wonder if Yahata on his own could deal some blows... Might be best done as a team oriented fight encounter however.

So I have an idea about what I'd like to do, but I need to know how it would work with the battle mechanics. I'd like to use Extra Effort to power stunt one of the following off of Yahata's Strength damage (7 PP):
Groundstrike: Burst Area 2 Affliction 8 (Resisted by Dodge, Overcome by Fortitude; Dazed and Vulnerable, Stunned and Prone; Extra Condition, Limited Degree, Instant Recovery, Distracting, Limited to targets on the ground*); 4 PP
LINKED TO
Environment 2 (Impede Movement: 2 ranks, 60 feet radius; Distracting, Permanent); 2 PP
OR
Fearsome Show of Strength: Visual Perception Area Affliction 7 (Resisted and Overcome by Will; Attack Impaired, Attack Disabled; Limited Degree, Selective, Distracting); 7 PP
The problem comes in how things like Fatigued and Distracting work here. Distracting can be described as Yahata putting himself in a vulnerable position; he could have a negative modifier to his next action, be denied his next move entirely, or some other consequence. Not sure how the Fatigue from using Extra Effort would apply here where our movement speed isn't much of a factor. And then would I also want to roll something here, such as either my Strength rank or the power rank?

* If "Targets on the ground" isn't worth being Limited in this scenario (since most of the targets are probably on the ground anyway), I could change it to a -1 PP Quirk and drop the ranks from 8 to 6. This would change the Affliction's cost from 4 to 5 PP.

EDIT: Wanted to add that everyone's posts are really great, players and GM. I'm going to have to try to step it up!

Well in the case of fatigued, while the slow wont be a big problem, if Yahata keeps accumulating degrees, like exahusted, and beyond, he could be incapacitated.
As per distracted, I like your suggestion of loosing his next round of actions.
Of course you could use a HP to deny the fatigue.

Beyond that, what would you attempt to do with your new power? Would you try to demoralize the invading army? Destroy the roads s that their mobility is impaired? If you do not want any "combat" related power you could do the same using your STR and rolling that.

Oh, if I can use Strength to try and demoralize the army without using Extra Effort to power stunt, I'll do that (unless power stunting in this case provides an advantage). I'm trying to avoid spamming Expertise: Warfare since I feel like I've used use it enough leading up to this point. I'll started a post that I'll have up tomorrow; I've got a nasty cold right now though and can feel the NyQuil kicking in.

Demoralizing Show of Strength: 1d20+7 21

Not bad! Hopefully enough to do something.

Holy cow! You guys are putting my narrative to shame! I can only hide behind the "I'm not a native English speaker" excuse so much. Anyways, the enemy is demoralized, loosing 1 morale.
I'll update the siege soon

Just FYI, I'm heading out-of-town this weekend. My internet access/availability will be spotty.
