Well, I just figured 'Mako Points are a pretty tense mechanic and limit breaks are all about the tension, so they should work together somehow'. If I may, I would suggest this mechanic, that you keep a nifty feat while also giving it universal application
Mako Points and Limit Gauges
When you spend a mako point, add one to your limit gauge
AND a feat
Whenever you spend a mako point to improve the result of a roll, you gain a number of points in your lmit gauge equal to the result of the extra die that was rolled by the Mako Point
Only gain one point.
Cloud Strife is level 1, has a wisdom of 12, and 10 points in his limit gauge and the Auto-Limit feat. When attacking Sephiroth McAwesomethemesong, he makes an attack roll (a natural 10 with a +3 bonus, for a total result of 13) and spends a mako point to increase his result, rolling a 3 on a six sided die. He adds 3 points to his limit guage as well as +3 to his attack result, bringing his limit gauge to 13, exceeding his wisdom score and allowing him to use a limit break on his next round.
Didn't we used to roll to see how full our limit gauge was at the start? Hime is on the run, so she's probably been shot at at least once.
Oh, and another feat.
What I Cherish
Prereq: Auto-limit, character level ?
Benefit: By spending a round soliloquising and reflecting on what you truly cherish, you push yourself to great heights to protect it, expending everything you have for a single, meaningful act to turn the tide. Expend all of your remaining Mako Points and gain a number of points in your limit gauge equal to your wisdom modifier+Mako Points expended. After a number of minutes equal to the limit gauge filled by this feat, your limit gauge drops to 0. I fthis fills his limit gauge enough for him to use a limit break, be may immediately perform it by expending every point in the gauge he has.
Pretty cool right?
I made another character sheet for Hime because I had to throw some stuff out. Here's the current version just to prove I'm not COMPLETELY unproductive.
I'm going to finalise her background and write it in tomorrow. Materia necklace, right?
