You may also wish to add some trappings to your powers, or at least give them names.

For Divination a trapping that comes to mind is "Object Read" . Instead of asking a power for a clue you can get impressions from objects. Another option might be some sort of visions or precognition.

Re: CAF Marine Battle Armor

Personally, It appears the definition of permanent powers seems to be understood very differently by you than in the SPC. In the case of the marine armor you're say a die type increase in Strength is permanent and therefore cannot have contingent powers attached to it. Contingent (-1/-2) : A Conting...

Re: CAF Marine Battle Armor

I think I'll just do it with no modifiers. I'm confusing myself.

Fly - 2 points
Combat Reflexes - 2 points
Speed - 2 points
Wall Walker - 1 point
Super Skill (Shooting) - 1 point

All of that on the tactical system once it is put on, taking 1d4+1 rounds per the base item.

Pender, I get what you are saying but not sure what you are proposing as an alternative. I see "requires attachment" which takes 1d4+1 rounds as a worse version of the "slow to activate" limitation. No powers are available until the item is attached. So they are all literally Contingent or slow to a...

Re: CAF Marine Battle Armor

Yes,

I was planning it as a sig item. Fleet Footed is probably more appropriate but my character already has that :P

While, from a human design view I agree. Given the CAF has non humans who might already be fast, double pace might work better in some circumstances too. Hard call.

I think the powers add up well.

Some idiot (me) already used a Patron item as a base item so you could be there too.

I'll have to read the powers in detail to make sure there no weird interactions, but looks good at first glance.
