Quick question - I was pondering the penetration that an invested device would have, but then realised that Finesse is not covered in the guidelines, or that I can find. I think a device uses the finesse of the wielder (ArM p100), but what if the effect is triggered by another effect?
eg. An invested device with two powers, the first detects somebody approaching, or opening a door, or entering an area. Then the second targets that person and casts a spell. The first effect would need to be a detection spell with constant effect, and the second would react using a linked trigger.
I'd suss this to say that the device works with Finesse +0.
Is it viable to enhance the item guidelines to allow increasing finesse by device levels, or is that better done by adding mags to the effect guidelines for the second effect, as per spell creation?
So that while one ability (penetration) is added by the effect modification, another is added by the spell base effect modification (finesse). Correct?
My suss is that Quickness based Initiative for the device also be raised by the base spell effect in the spell guidelines?
