Hit a new lvl with my mutant the other day, and with my continuous mutation got to roll fer a new minor power, and low and behold I get Mental Stun , so I'm thinkin cool, can finaly get rid of the bean bag rounds for the 12 guage, and not hafta worry about re charging e clip's for the stun gun, but then I read the power closely and find out that it cost's 3 Hand to Hand attack's just for the chance to DIZZY the opponent for 2 rounds.......What up wid dat??? 3 attack's for a loss of an attack and a few minuses that would be less then what you would get if someone thru sand in your eye's ( and that's only if the adversary fail's his save)

Yeah, I know the feeling . . . I was trying to find non-lethal non-damaging powers I could use Mental stun seemed like a great idea . . . but nope, it's one of thoes powers that I don't think is very useful (of course I would be more than willing to have that in real life) but actually I suspect that the power is best used for non-combat times . . . expecially if you decide that the person who the power is being used on isn't aware that he's being psionically attacked.

a - 40% to something like detect ambush, or some other skill might be useful . . .oh well

Comment: Non Impediti Ratione Cogitationis
I really like the power, but in the games I run I've dropped it down to only 1 attack per melee.

Well, it's non-psionic so it's more of how a cobra can look at it's enemy and hypnotizes it. This takes time.

One thing I'd like to see more of in HU is non-lethal powers. Currently we have Resin, Swing Line, Power Bands, Sleep Dust, Mental Stun and Bubbles but I'd like to see an electrical stunning attack, a tear gas attack, etc.

The Chemical Secretion major has the tear gas.

The Venomous has Paralytic Poison.

I'm aware of Chemical Secretion, probably one of my new favorite powers. But I was thinking more on the lines of minor superpowers. Venomous attack is a good option but its range is limited to touch. I want something more in line with The Wasp's "sting energy attack".
