PostSubject: Power List   Sun Jun 19, 2011 3:34 pm

We know not all powers are known or some are lesser known so I have posted this list in hopes of helping people find unique powers to use. Please keep in mind we reserve the right to not allow certain powers or request the modification of others to keep things balanced and fair. Also while we attempt to allow everyone to have the power they want if we get too many people with similar powers we may request you try to find another unless you can make the usage truly unique. Thank you
