Description: The nova can generate a melee weapon forged out of quantum energy. The exact style and appearance of the weapon varies from nova to nova (swords being the most common, but hammers, axes and staves are not unknown). Once generated, the nova uses the quantum weapon in the same fashion as any other melee weapon of its type, and uses their Melee dice pool to wield it in combat. Since it's the energy of the quantum weapon that inflicts the damage, the relative strength of the nova using it matters little. The quantum weapon inflicts [Quantum] + (power rating x 3) bashing or [Quantum] + (power rating x 2) lethal damage. This is defined when the power is purchased and cannot be changed.

The nova may only generate one quantum weapon at a time; creating a new weapon automatically dissipates the previous one. The weapon can be used by others (if the nova who generated it is disarmed or loans the quantum weapon to an ally), but it will dissipate in (power rating turns), after which it must be reformed. A nova can never be injured by his own quantum weapon. This power cannot be used with the Ranged extra. The quantum weapon is considered to have soak and health levels both equal to (Quantum + power rating) for the purposes of attacks directed against the quantum weapon.

Extras: Aggravated (The quantum weapon does [power rating + successes] aggravated damage); Arsenal (The nova may change the weapon type of his quantum weapon (i.e turn a sword into a hammer or chain).This also lets the nova shift the damage from Bashing to Lethal and vice versa); Daisho (The nova may generate a secondary weapon without dissipating the first. This second weapon is somewhat weaker, inflicting [Quantum] + (power rating x 2) bashing or [Quantum] + (power rating) lethal damage).
