I have looked on NMI's Black Vault, but not knowing what it might be called, it's hard to tell...
And the powers thread is a beast to look through. search is only useful when you know what you are looking for.

Does anyone know if a Major version of the Density Walking power has been made? I want a speedster that can run on air (not just smoke, clouds, etc..).
He would be able to run, walk, and just stand in place on air at whatever the running speed is. Not quite flight, because I want to use running motion and the speed the character can run at.
If it doesn't exist already somewhere, or at least if it is not known to, perhaps this would be an impetus for someone to create the power?
Thanks ahead of time.

Or even as a minor power, since the Density walking power is anemic anyway..(IMO)

I did a couple of Major powers with the ability to walk on air.

Thanks. Not quite what I'm looking for, as I'd like to be able to change elevation and move at top speeds, but might give me a place to start.
I'm thinking running through air as if there is a ramp under them where ever they go that is invisible and insubstantial to everyone else.

Why not just do it as a power combo using wingless flight but say they have to be running to use it? The ability to "stand" in the air is a flight ability, as is the aility to move through the air at high speed. I'm not seeing why it needs to be more complicated than that.

Good point. The only reason I was trying to make it more complicated was so that the running speed (such as sonic speed) could be used while in the air.
But I think you've convinced me to keep it simple.
It is for an NPC, so it doesn't matter as much anyway. Just, when I make something for NPCs, I like to make at least a version that is usable as a PC power.
I must be a masochist, trying to make things harder for myself than they need to be. LOL
