    Given by leonvanderblight
    You know someone in a specific industry or area of influence, and can lean on them for assistance. Once per Contract, and once per Downtime, you may call in a favor from _____. For as long as you possess a Kevin Friendship Bracelet, the citizens and officials of this shadow state consider you an ally. They are not willing to reveal their presence to the public nor disclose the location of their colonies, and they are vigilant about not being recorded or tracked in any way. Once per Downtime and Contract, they can pull on their vast network to provide you with shelter, werecreature info, supplies, and/or send a guide who knows the area extremely well. In urban areas, their support is a phone call away. In wilderness areas, you can set up a symbol on the ground using anything on hand. It may take time for a wereraven to see, but it will convey that you're an ally and bring a wereperson to discuss what you need.

    Endocrine Cancer Mark has been diagnosed with an aggressive cancer attacking his endocrine system. This Cancer is in part responsible for Mark's Powers - if a Power is used to cure it, it will supress Mark's Powers until he chooses to "throw off" the effect, bringing the cancer back.

    Distant Fateful Given by Strazhari
    Mark has an aggressive form of cancer directly related to his superhuman stature - see the related Condition.


    Marks caught a few villians in his day, and one thing they always seem to have in common is they never shut up.
    He's learned how to conversationally 'push their buttons' and make them talk.
    So far, the most reliable way has been to talk about himself, to instigate their inevitable sense of competition.
    It takes constant conversation, so when Mark mentions his relavent truths, their target does too.
    Preferably in the form of a back and forth gloating/determination sort of thing.


    "I'm Mark Collins, fighter of injustice, protector of the weak. I'm here to stop you! " (flexes in superhero pose)

    "It's too late, Mark!" (laughs maniacally) "You'll never find the bombs in time!" (Shows him live feed of the city.) "Watch your public failure with me! The world will know my name! ZOXOB!"

    "If you have to look along the shaft of an arrow from the wrong end, if a man has you entirely at his mercy, then hope like hell that man is an evil man. Because the evil like power, power over people, and they want to see you in fear. They want you to know you're going to die. So they'll talk. They'll gloat. They'll watch you squirm. They'll put off the moment of murder like another man will put off a good cigar. So hope like hell your captor is an evil man. A good man will kill you with hardly a word."
    Terry Pratchett

    Exert your Mind (unless The target thinks they have the upper hand) and spend one minute to activate. Select a Sapient target within arm's reach. You must continuously interact with the individual in question in order to gather any information. At the end of your investigation, roll Brawn + Influence at Difficulty 6.

    You learn all the following information about your target:

    • Determine if this target is Alien in origin or whether it has any Alien energy or outside influences.
    • You learn the target's name, nicknames, screen names, and aliases.
    • You learn Their master plan/immediate personal goal.
    • You determine any major weaknesses that the target might have.

    The quality and specificity of information gained depends on your Outcome. For any information you learn about your target, the corresponding information about you is shared with them.

    Any information you gather is A spoken conversation and made publicly available. This also includes any information the target learns about you.

    • Weakness Must be things that are systemed around. For example, silver for a werewolf. Not general like "she's bad at fighting".
    • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

    Together with Mark's grit power, Mark resembles bodybuilders that probably went a little too far.

    His bones are 3x denser than a normal human, but even his skin seems highly resistant to damage, allowing him to rip, tear, and lift things far beyond human limits.

    One of the first things to kick in with the genetic cocktail that is Mark Collins, his father convinced him to keep his hefty brawn a secret. In fact, he had quite the sheltered life alone with his dad on the farm in Iowa.

    You gain the following benefits at all times.

    Your Brawn rating is increased by 1. You may Exert your Mind to automatically gain an Outcome of 5 on any roll that uses Brawn (cannot be used on combat rolls or Effect activations).

    You also gain the following effects:

    • Beast of Burden: You may carry up to 50lbs per point of Brawn with no Penalty, and your Penalty when over-encumbered is -1 per 50lbs over this limit.
    • Champion of the Caber Toss: You may lift an additional 1500 pounds per point of Brawn beyond 5, and may throw items up to this weight with a Brawn + Athletics roll, to a distance of Outcome x10 feet. If this makes you Encumbered, you may still move at 5 feet per Round.
    • Heavy Hitter: Successful attacks made with Brawn will either knock your target back Outcome x 5 feet, or knock them down to the ground. Choose which effect the attack will have prior to rolling for it.
    • High Constitution: You gain +2 dice to any Body resistance rolls. Any failed or botched Body rolls will instead give an outcome of 1.
    • Tough: Half your Brawn acts as Armor against all incoming sources of damage.

    His knuckles have become hardened, and his biceps and triceps have doubled in size.
    A fan of comic books, Mark knew he had to learn to fight. He tends to fight like classical superheroes, just because he hasn't been taught any different- leaning hard on brutal strength and speed rather than skill or finesse.

    Mark's unique genetics kicked in at a young age, though it was nearly his late teenage years before he actually started practicing combat and fighting, visiting a community boxing club.

    First thing he learned was how to not break them.
    Second was how to not destroy the gloves.

    You gain the following benefits as long as you are engaged in unarmed combat.

    +2 dice to rolls for Attacking, Defending, and Clashing without a weapon. Unarmed attacks do +0 Bonus Damage Weapon Damage (instead of -1). The target's Armor is fully effective against this damage.

    You also gain the following effects:

    • Armored Fist: You cannot take Damage from attacking a dangerous material (such as steel armor, a spiked carapace, or an acidic blob). You may Defend against melee, projectile, or firearm attacks from any range and Clash with those in range of your attacks.
    • Disarm: If you successfully Defend or Clash with a melee attack, you may take possession your opponent’s weapon or launch if up to 35 feet away.
    • Fancy Footwork: You may move your full Dash distance and attack in the same Round without penalty. You may also split your movement before and after your attack.
    • Finesse: You may limit the Severity of any Injury you inflict or determine a maximum Wound Level to inflict on the target, including Incapacitated.
    • Transcendence: You may Exert your Mind to Defend against any number of incoming Attacks this Round as a Free Action. While active, you can only Defend against attacks directed at yourself. When Defending against a mob using the Mob Combat rules, their Attack does not gain the normal Outcome bonus.

    • Unlike the Ability Brawl, this Effect does not affect small weapons such as knives.

    Upon exposure to air, some peculiar cells in Mark's bloodstream will revert into stem cells, and plug into the wounds, allowing them to heal over time.

    'Shallower' wounds tend to heal slower than grievous injuries.

    You gain the following benefits at all times.

    Any Injury you receive from a source other than Punches/kicks heals quickly, reducing its Severity by one level every 6 hours, starting once it becomes stabilized. You may also Exert your Mind and spend an Action to reduce the Severity of a single stabilized Injury by 1. Does not affect Injuries suffered as an activation cost for Effects.

    Battle Scars caused by your Injuries are also healed when the Injuries that caused them regenerate.

    Injuries you receive from Punches/kicks are increased in Severity by 1.

    • The increase in Injury Severity stacks with any similar effects, such as the Vulnerable drawback on Inhuman Physiology.

    superman style hearing and seeing

    Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate.

    Your senses are enhanced in the following way. Lasts for three hours.

    • Sight: You can see perfectly in dark and even pitch-black environments. You suffer no dice penalty due to darkness.
    • Sight: You can see things that are up to a mile away as though you were only standing twenty feet away, provided your view is unobstructed.
    • Hearing: You automatically know the origin location of any sound you hear, and you can tell which Action caused the sound.

    Any heightened senses require you to maintain Concentration to use, and do not apply to any passive Perception checks.

    The adrenaline boosts have had a visible impact on Mark's physique, as impressive as it was before- sliding from athlete, to full on bodybuilder.

    His nerve system's don't seem to transfer pain like ours, deadening the sensation, but also producing vast quantities of adrenaline- enough to kill a man who didn't have the body Mark does.

    His adrenal glands are also swolen and deformed, capable of much higher outputs than normal.

    You gain the following benefits at all times.

    Your Body and Mind Penalties are reduced to 0.

    While Incapacitated, you may Exert your Mind to take a single action.

    If you are Stunned, asleep, drugged, or otherwise made unconscious for any reason other than being Incapacitated, you may Exert your Mind to wake up. Any penalty which was caused by this condition is removed.

    Certain cells in Mark's bloodstream are able to revert themselves into stem cells to patch wounds, repair neurons, and keep him functioning, albeit barely.

    You gain the following benefits at all times.

    If you would take an Injury that would kill you, you don’t die. Instead, you survive in an Incapacitated state. This state lasts for the next hour, at which point you fully return to life.

    If, while you are unconscious, your wound level rises above your rating in Body + twice your Brawn, or if you take an Injury with Severity greater than twice your rating in Brawn, you die. After you return, the Injury that would have killed you, as well as any Injuries sustained while Incapacitated, are healed. Battle scars obtained during this time remain.

    Possession of this Power grants the following Trauma at all times: Compulsion to follow things through and not flee or surrender.

    Marks body is becoming more and more conditioned for excruciatingly hard impacts and sudden bursts of muscle tension.

    His aim is nearly flawless, but it's very difficult for him to adjust his trajectory significantly without a lot of effort. He can't turn on a dime, reverse, or stop unless he has something to hold onto or kick off of, but he is very good at landing-
    Despite the crater he leaves at impact of great height.

    Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate. Select a Location which is at most 75 feet away horizontally or 15 feet away vertically.

    You jump to the chosen location. If the landing is precarious, the GM may call for a roll to land safely. You will never take fall damage from successfully landing a jump made with this Effect.

    You may activate this Effect while in free-fall, as long as your target Location is a surface on which you can land. You are immune to fall damage.

    • If you are Encumbered, the maximum range is cut in half. If Encumbrance has reduced your total movement to 0, you cannot activate this Effect.
    • vertical jump height measures to the bottom of your feet, so your total vertical reach is at least a body length greater.
    • Rolls to land safely will generally be Athletics, but GMs may call for a different roll at their discretion if it makes sense for the specific circumstances.
    • You may only use this Effect once per Round of combat, regardless of any Enhancements you have taken.
    • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

    Mark can throw big things better now- his hands and fingers have swollen still, almost like bricks.

    You gain the following benefits as long as you are engaged in combat with thrown weapons.

    +2 dice to all rolls utilizing thrown weapons.

    Possession of this Power grants the following Battle Scar: Swollen fingers, -3 dice to actions requiring fine finger dexterity. Some actions, like turning a key, picking up something small, or using a gun with a covered trigger are simply impossible or would take some time at best.

    You also gain the following effects:

    • Jackie Chan: You do not receive a Difficulty penalty when throwing objects that are not designed for throwing.
    • Nobody Tosses A Dwarf: Anything you can lift, you can throw a normal distance. Any encumbrance penalty applies to this roll.

    Pony Feast Trough

    Created by Kevin Sparkles, given to Mark Collins.
    Kevin has crafted A 5 foot by 2 foot Trough that allows his customers to turn into pony’s so they can eat like a pony.

    While transformed, you may speak and use any Influence or Communication Powers you posses.

    While transformed, you are obviously unusual, unnatural, or alien, and the average person will take a special interest in you.

    An appropriately named jacket, coming in a variety of colors and woven with kevlar fabrics this blend of modern technology and fantastical ability can take you from anywhere to Leon's own home base. Though he's loathe to hand these out to any but those he trusts beyond all else, their incredible value in getting out of a shit situation when all else fails is beyond measure.
