As a mad scientist, I spend a lot of my time doing research following a strict protocol. I carry arround the result of my research. I had a little issue with my last craft, a little explosion... And my team start arguing about the "safety issue".
So I recreated the device and designed a test protocol where someone has to carry the device while I trigger it from a safe distance. But I struggle evaluating the result of the experience:
In twenty minutes, you can easily craft at home what non scientists call a blast bomb, infusing the blast power into a simple device.
How is the energy used when the device is triggered? As the blast can't used at once all the energie store.
Blastor: 10pp Blast power points consumption : 2–6 pp to damage conversion ratio : 2pp => 2d6, 4pp => 3d6, or 4pp => 2d6 + large blast, 6pp => 3d6 + large blast
From the last words of the test subject, "haaaaaarg", and the remain of his body I can deduce that the blastor works, dealing 3d6 + large blast + 3d6.
But it was impossible to determine from the test subject's last words if the explosion was simultaneous or sequential.
This is relatively important for me, as I want to go further in my test.
If the explosions are sequential, I can find a test subject that will survive long enough to give me his impression after 2 blast at 3d6. But the 6d6 large blast will require much tougher friends.
