# "I Just Wanna Fly!"

If I bump GrimÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Glamour up to 6 for 2 pp, I should be able to add the following AP for another pp, right? Or is my math way off? IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m doing the vignette and finishing my survey, and hoping to get 4 pp for October, so I can do this and get my Equipment for the Interceptors.

Alternate Power: Flight 3 (50mph, Drawbacks: Power Loss [Wings]) + Shrinking 8 (Tiny, Feats: Normal Toughness) [12PP]

Yes and no.

Going from Glamour 5 (10pp powers) to Glamour 6 (12pp powers) would cost 2pp.

And adding another AP would cost 1 pp.

But

the build above is not 12pp.

Flight 3 (Drawback: Power Loss) costs 5pp: 6pp for Flight 3, -1pp for the Drawback.

Shrinking 8 (PF: Normal Toughness) costs 9pp: 8pp for Shrinking 8, +1 for the Power Feat.

5+9 = 14pp, not 12.

Ok, so if I drop Flight down to 2, that would be 4pp, -1 for the power loss, correct? That should bring me down to 12pp total.

Correct, though remember the reduction in speed Shrinking inflicts. Shrinking 8 = Tiny = move reduced to 1/2 normal (in other words, you effectively lose a rank in any movement power, so you'd be operating at Flight 1).

Oh man! It is very hard to build Tinker Bell on the cheap! :(

Flight 1 is still 10 mph. Its probably still faster than bikeing around the city ;)

I thought movement power counteracted that. Like a duck waddles but flies pretty fast.

Nope. Ducks fly fast b/c they have Flight. Even Flight 1 (10mph) would be cut to 5mph (assuming a Tiny duck) = 50 feet per round, which is faster than a person walks.

I'm still gonna do it, but it's gonna be a lot different than her old Pixie build who was insanely fast. Oh well, Flight is Flight; I can always increase it if I pump more into Glamour later.

Don't we charge 1pp for Normal Movement anyway?

The Normal Movement power feat, yes. But she didn't take that, so her Movement is reduced when shrunk.

I might add Normal Movement and Normal Stength if I get Glamour up to 7 someday.

If I get as many pp as I think I might this month (I posted way more than I thought I had), I might go with this version, based of Glamour 7: Alternate Power: Flight 2 (25mph, Drawbacks: Power Loss [Wings]) + Shrinking 8 (Tiny, Feats: Normal Movement, Normal Strength, Normal Toughness)
