The exploding ISP pool in response to a supernatural threat is an interesting conceit for the BTS2. It preserves the lack of laboratory duplication, but allows enough power to address a supernatural threat.

But has anybody converted these OCCs into a more Megaversal format? There are a lot of characters here that could be fun to play in Dead Reign, Heroes Unlimited, Nightbane, or even Systems Failure or N&SS.

My rule of thumb has been to quadruple the base.
This has worked fairly well for running BTS2 survivors in CE.

For N&SS I would probably times it by 2 and halve the ISP of other PCCs. Just like the PPE of the N&SS OCCs is pretty low.

Last time I saw a BTS2 O.C.C. in another setting it was a BTS2 character rifted to Post-Rifts Earth and IIRC their 'power level' was always at a heightened level, something like one step below the maximum, or perhaps just a few levels above base... it's been a... rather long while..., to allow for a jump in the presence of a layline, nexus, supernatural threat... that sort of stuff.

IIRC the justification was the increased 'background' level of magic in the Rifts setting was acting as the trigger for the character. I'd imagine the same could be applied to the other settings.

I hardly remember the BTS2 rules regarding the 'power' jump. Why would it be a problem to retain it as is? From what my memory can conjure up I don't recall an obvious issue to this somewhat unique mechanic that would could a problem in another setting. Or is it the lack power in the face of the mundane?
