it wouldn't be, but the permanent willpower costs the same nova points as just buying the background and willpower is extremely limited (10 max).
Seems like a bad trade off.

Not to be a nay-sayer but I don't think you can create living things with Matter Creation. While there is a fake version, the Background kind of Eufiber is an actual colony of living substance that was secreted from some guy's body (kind of yuck, right?) However, 5 dots of a background only costs 1 nova point or 5 bonus points. You'd probably be better off getting it one of those ways.

@kerchunk
The power actually specifically calls out Eufiber as an option, but as you pointed out it really isn't worth the cost to make it permanent.

It's one willpower and I could make like 1000kg of it. I don't have Nova point to spare obviously. So it is just Bonus points. The real question is the quality of the Eufiber, Assuming the difference isn't just the raw amount.

You might have to make your Nova a scientific prodigy first. After all, you kind of need to know how something works if you want to create it.

Ahh, ok. I'll let the adults handle this then.

Kerchunk is actually correct. The Background is Living Eufiber that can store Quantum Energy. There is also synthetic Eufiber that is just a super fabric that can transform and such. It still defies most physics and is worth mentioning on the chart but it still falls into the purview Matter Creation

This is actually already covered. It's Wits+MC to create raw materials and Engineering+MC to create complex things. But even as complex as the molecules of Eufiber might be they are still just molecules. I can create a fully functioning computer using Matter Creation and Engineering the most complex synthetic molecule I've ever seen is simple by comparison.

On the flip side I can make wood with just Wits+MC does the wood have DNA? Cell structures? Organelles? That is more complex than any device. I suppose I could just be creating pure cellulose or something and it just appears to be wood.

Either Way I do actually plan on making room for at least a point in super Int so I can get Engineering Prodigy to supplement the Matter Creation.

Fabricator was a pretty smart guy Pre-Eruption Army Corps of Engineers turned College Professor. That would normally would break my unbelievably tailored backstory rules except I actually had a professor that was vaguely more bad ass than this character.

@Sir Swindle,

Technically, yes you can create Eufiber using Matter Creation, and you can make it permanent at the cost of one permanent dot of Willpower. For the difficulty, I’d say +3 for synthetic Eufiber and +4 for the living variety (which means you need 4 and 5 successes, respectively).

That said, I do agree with Jenny that you’d need some kind of special knowledge or understanding of Eufiber in order to create it. For balance, I’d say at least 3 dots in Science. Fortunately, the skills in Aberrant are broad so you don’t need to invest in ten different science skills to do it.

Any unusual substances or any kind of complex machinery, I’ll probably rule you should have skills that reflect an understanding of it (so creating a car would require some engineering knowledge). Otherwise, you can create a vast majority of materials and objects without issue.

Looking forward to seeing this character when it’s done.

Right, Engineering is the standard one. I assume they were thinking Cars and Guns it actually replaces your Wits in the roll which makes it WAY harder because you can't even do Mega-Wits that way.

Current draft this is his Int section
INTELLIGENCE 4
Academics 3
Bureaucracy
Computer 2
Engineering 3
Intrusion
Linguistics
Medicine 2
Science 2
Survival

So I was already planning on having a lot of dots in Knowledge plus Mega-Int (Assuming I can afford it).

@Kerchunk, kanly, and Bigmig, I’m looking over your characters now. I might message you both with questions if I have any.

@Everybody, in case any of you are unaware, p. 63 of the Players Guide has errata for the various Quantum powers and enhancements. Worth checking out.

Yeah thatís a good Abilities spread. Thatíll let you create pretty much whatever you want using Matter Creation.

Hello everyone. I’ll be playing Professor Singularity, a Mega-Intelligent nova inventor. He’s kind of modeled after Megamind.

Welcome!

If you plan to delve into super inventions, I recommend using the rules from Brainwaves instead of the Playerís Guide. The invention rules in Brainwaves are more complex but offer more options.

@Jenny Greenteeth,

Any idea what you want to make for a character? I don’t think I’ve heard from you yet.
