Various little niggly bits, most of which I can't remember at the moment. The big ones were "How hot is fire made by Pyrokinesis in its various modes"

I thought Morg cleared that one up pretty well...

If I remember Agent333's complaint, it was something like his player want to just "heat up" a target a little with pyrotechnics (which is something the rules don't address; they just give a damage number.) I think Morg likened the player's request to something like doing surgery with a grenade. :)

As the rules are written, there is no provision for anything but the damage. Personally, I wouldn't call finer gradiations out of the question, but with full knowledge by the players that they are existing entirely within the harbor of my generosity.  8)

Well, one of the uses for Pyrokinesis is setting an area on fire. But it doesn't specify how much damage said area is taking, nor the heat of the fire you light. Plus, the fire's AP is directly related to its heat, so that actually makes a difference...

Plus, I hate my players, because they are evil.

That one's simple. Determine the fuel that's burning and find a good match on the chart.
