DnDChick said:Form feats can be used to buy extra gear slots. If someone finds themselves short on gear points to spend on weapons or tech gear they can drop a few form feats into Gear Slots.
It's also a good way to beef up a sagging Armor Class brough about by increased size with the Armor Boost form feat.
Hm. The way I'm reading the Gear Slot feat (I am assuming that's the one you're referring to), it doesn't grant you more priority points to spend. I think it just allows you to increase your limit for how much gear/weapons can be linked to your alt form - after all, some forms are quite restrictive for how much gear can be linked to them. That's a separate can of worms, though. Looking at it now, it seems like if you prioritize gear at 5 and alt form at 1, you have no form choices that can have that much gear linked. Any time you switched to alt form, you'd have your extra gun rattling around loose in your pickup bed or something.
I like the idea for applying the construct hit point rule in some form. Though mechamorphs have the hp bonus from con that constructs lack, it would be very nice to have a built-in way for very large characters to not be ridiculous glass cannons in melee. The only problem is that matching their defenses to their offensive ability starts to make the available choices balanced only in the RIFTS sense of the word.
