I imagine as a lawyer burst would make some seriously heated arguments that would set the court on fire, and blaze new precedents in the law. :lol:

Powers
Staff of Tlaloc - 24 Point Removable Dynamic Array, with 4 Dynamic AEs - 27 Points

Wrath of Tlaloc: Environment 8 (1/2 mile, Cold, Impede Movement, Reduce Visibility) - 24 Points
AE: Rain God's Tempest: Ranged Burst Area Damage 8, Dynamic - 2 Points
AE: Tempest Alternative: Ranged Burst Area Move Object 8, Dynamic - 2 Points
AE: Tlaloc's Lightning: Ranged Damage 8, Accurate 2, Indirect 3 (Any Point, Downward), Insidious, Dynamic - 2 Points
AE: Crackling Thunder: Burst Area Cumulative Affliction 8 (Fortitude vs Visual and Auditory Impaired, Visual and Auditory Disabled, Visual and Auditory Unaware), Dynamic - 2 Points
I may be misunderstanding what you're going for, but is the Environment power also dynamic? Otherwise, it's usually a bit odd to make attacks dynamic, because you can so seldom actually use them at the same time.

Rain God's Mercy: Immunity 10 (Weather Effects), Removable - 8 Points

Rain God's Grace: Enhanced Presence 3; Enhanced Defenses 10 (Dodge and Parry 5), All Removable - 13 Points
Are these part of the staff or their own artifacts? I suspect the first, but you listed them separately.

Advantages
Defensive Roll 4, Extraordinary Effort, Hide in Plain Sight, Set Up, Teamwork
While useful Advantages, I'm a bit surprised as Set Up and Teamwork given he seems to be set up as more of a lone wolf in his prior life.

Burst
Honestly, I don't really have anything to comment on other than to note that you should label his Fire Punch as Strength-Based Damage. Seems solid.

The entire staff array is dynamic, including Environment, yes. This is mostly to create and sustain a storm while using my weather spells. While not strictly mandatory, I find that the flavor is ideal.

The Mercy and the Grace are part of the staff as well, apologies for the confusion.

Thinking about it as you mention it, I do have to agree with the Teamwork/Set Up combo being uncharacteristic. Perhaps Takedown and Redirect would make suitable replacements, albeit I would then feel compelled to move points around to grant him a glimmer of Bartetsu. I'll see what I can manage on that front, if nothing else I'll just have to resist my urge.

This was a very well-done analysis, I must say. I'll definitely take these notes into account as I shuffle points around. Thank you very much.

No problem.And welcome to the Gym....:D
What type of "Martial Enthusiest" do you see him as, a "Sherlockian(More Intellectual Advantages than Physical)" or a "Vaudian(More combatant than anything)"?....

As a gentleman thief, he'd have learned Bartitsu to dispatch guards without killing them. So Vaudian, more or less. I certainly would like some mental advantages to tie in a mastermind-esque aesthetic, but the build lends itself to little leeway.

Is there a combat style of "Hit things until they stop hitting you back"? :P

Muay Thai? Most forms of Ninjutsu? MMA? Kajukenbo?

Edit: I've updated Merryweather's sheet to have basic Bartitsu advantages, that would let him fight pragmatically with his cane... or hat. Or pocket watch. Or barstool. Or......

All of them... I mean, that's sort of the point. I mean, I guess you could be pedantic and say that archery and firearms training involves "shooting things until they stop hitting you back," but that's still hitting them. They're just further away and your hitting them with something small and swift-moving.

Hahah, good point. What Cindy would really benefit from would be a style that benefits from her small size, or at least allows her to use it well. Baseball bats work for now, though I can't imagine she'll stick with one for her entire career. ....Right?
