It may be a little like trying to herd cats but let's try and give a little structure here, let me know who's sitting where so we can have a rough seating plan.

Heroditus had joined Octo-Ben, Leroy, and Benny, but it looks like Benny left and joined Ashley & Judy?

Ashley and Judy are together and will try and get Mia and Nick to sit with them - they do not want to sit with Claude or Octo-Ben.

Leroy'swith Benicio.

Claudes' willing to work with anybody, but it looks Mia, Micah, and Nick in the group at the moment.

Extra Effort to stunt an extra AP off Sun Dragon's Array:

Create Object 1(5ft blocks 'programmable matter', Extras: Duration 2(Permanent); Feats: Precise)[5PP]

Learned that was not how the power worked.

Nick returning to the group of Mia, Micah, and Claude was the original plan. As noted though, herding cats.

Don't leave Judy, she likes Nick!

Create Object starts at [power rank] 5 ft. cubes, and Progression increases the size of the cube (10 ft., then 25, then 50, etc.).  So that build would let him create one 25-ft. cube!

My B there. Need to get the Permanent Duration on there as well, but how would you diminish the size except by making a Drawback of the size Progression?

FYI Shofet, I think right now we've got Mia, Claude, and Micah at one table, and then Judy, Ashley, and (temporarily) Nick at a different table, possibly with 1-2 more.

Meanwhile, I think Leroy, Heroditus, Benny, and OctoDude are at a third table, with the latter showing us his general awesomeness form the ceiling?

What would be a good way to roll for properly changing the programmable matter? Idea is he's trying to make a food replicator that spits out controlled amounts of ideal versions of the materials making up the sandwich.

Just an Intelligence or Wisdom check?

Let's do Intelligence. DC10 + rank, so DC11. 11. So that's good.

Benny is sort of hovering around the Smiths.

Create Object is Sustained duration by default, so making it Permanent is a +0 change (+1 to go up to Continuous, -1 to add the Permanent flaw).

The Toughness and lifting Strength of the object are also limited by the power rank, so anything made with Rank 1 Create Object is going to be pretty flimsy.

Since you have 22PP to work with, here's how I'd do it:

Create Object 10 (Extras: Affects Others, Duration [Continuous]; Flaws: Action [Full], Permanent, Range [Touch]; Feats: Extended Reach [10ft], Innate, Precise, Subtle) [14PP]

That opens up our options to stuff that's potentially as strong as steel and/or strong enough to hold a fighter jet or an 18-wheeler without collapsing.

Affects Others lets him touch someone and give them the power, which is basically what he did by handing a cube to OctoBen.

Permanent (and Continuous) Created Objects don't go away when you swap to a different AP.

Innate means they won't vanish if someone counters/Nullifies your Create Object effect after the fact.

Subtle means that whatever objects they become seem "real"/"normal", not like some weird version of themselves.

Ahhhh, that does make more sense. Thanks Grumble!

Trying to give other folks a chance to react to Leroy's casual attempt to create a mini-black-hole before Micah speaks up again. In the meantime, who would be able to pick up the following, and in what way would it manifest for them? This is pure fluff.

1.) Trace amounts of ozone in the air/an increase in trace amounts of ozone in the air.

2.) Ionization in the air upticking a small amount. No one's hair is standing on end (yet) but if you have a sense that could pick this up it's there.

3.) Extremely weak x-ray production (lightning actually produces x-rays!).

4.) Visual acuity strong enough to notice lightning bolts a third as wide as a human hair and a quarter as long sparking up along Micah, spread out at a density of 1-2 every few square inches of his body.

Octoman's got great eyesight and superhuman smell/taste, so definitely the first one and maybe the second.

Definitely three and probably two for Vox. He'd hear the x-rays for sure, and the uptick would register similarly.

@Tiffany Korta Checking in because it's been 9 IC posts (including one GM post) since OctoBen basically flipped the "ON" switch. Does anything come of his attempt to turn the cube of programmable matter into the seat of an artificial intelligence? Does he need to make any rolls?

Sorry about that, will get the baby AI to life soon. In the mean time if you want to post assume the machine is still compiling for a bit.
