Advice on my campaign

Post by Cinder » Sun Jan 26, 2020 3:46 pm

I have been running a Second Edition Mutants and Mastermind Campaign since 2008, which will be wrapping up this year. It is a teenage campaign. In it my characters are PL nine. I have this adventure where they are going to be captured by an extra-dimensional being who give them their perfect futures. They will figure it out and escape. I want advice on an issue with which I have been wrestling. It would make sense for them to be PL 11-12 in the future. However, this will be the penultimate session and they will have to go back to their regular PL 9 after. If a GM did this to you, would you feel cheated by having to go back to a "weaker" version of your character for the final adventure?

I was thinking that I would allow them to "level up" to ten for the last session, but that would still less than what they were in their future versions. Thoughts?

I've temporarily powered up characters several times. What I've typically seen is less the "we want to stay higher PL" and more "I want to change my points/power allocation to be able to use this power I had". And a grant of a few points does kind of make sense because they've gained in experience.
