When Universe comes out, a new rule will be in place: The Rule of Three. Basically, it's a rule that states that you may modify any one value a max of +3/-3. That means whore bombs will, from now on, have a slight damper on them. They are also making it so that you CAN use perplex/enhancement and the such with such powers as ranged combat expert and close combat expert, but only so that the total increase is 3.
I'm not quite sure what to think of this rule yet, at least until I get to play a few games with it. Guess I'll just have to wait it out.
