Dami, I usually don't stat my characters. At all, period. I just have a vague idea of what they can do and add it all up on the fly if necessary. Not a problem. But with Ephebe and Andromeda I need to have a solid framework to give me the exact nature of their limits because once you add time powers into the mix it's super easy to get way OP way fast without intending to. I don't mind Ephebe being OP now because she's in NPC territory as a teacher, and also she's a Plot Device...rather literally. But Andromeda is back at the beginning in PC territory. So I have to know what she can and can't do. With some tweaks to reflect the whole Champion thingy. So I don't accidentally steamroll over anyone else's characters.
Also, regarding Time Stop....bloody hell, I keep forgetting how watered down it's gotten already! (Sorry, having a grognard moment here.)
