Hero level Heavy Lifter lets you add Enhancement 3 to rolls to lift & cary heavy objects. That puts them about on par, according to the Scale chart, with giants that can lift and throw cars. As a Demigod Heracles could hold up the sky itself. In the Gigantomachy, Athena pinned a foe under a hurled mountain. They are operating on a completely different tier of power in the myths that the game purportes to emulate. That's the entire reason for the game to have the tiers it does, with the later "Demigod" and "God" hardback sourcebooks just like "Hero".
No need to be sorry for that friend ^^, besides you don't know that for sure so your guess or expectation is as good as mine. Making them scale up doesn't bring anything to the game nor that it makes the characters more godly, that is an incorrect assumption, as the one calling the present purviews heroic. Many of them have the ability to affect entire crowds of people or even entire towns, like the one presented here, sounds pretty godly to me as it stands...
Sorry Kilrog, but powers are definitely going to scale up. The ones we are seeing are very much Heroic level powers relative to the worldshaping powers of them gods. Demigods are more powerful than “have more of the same Boons that Heroes have.”
I certainly hope not, having powers or skills splitted among several books is a pain in the back to keep track of, I'm hoping for no levels of purviews but for Demigods and Gods to gain access to more of them. Seriously powers are already godly enough as they are, no need to powergame that thing AND make it less usable at the same time, really no point in that.
Are there plans to keep updating the Companion’s new Purviews for the Demigod and God levels?
