Hungers Temptation everyone hunger for something

Requires Seasoned
The power to set traps that catch and hold a target's attention when triggered.
Used by Who Fang, Created by Strazhari.
(The trap looks like a fine meal. It can only be spotted as a trap by those with preexisting knowledge of such traps. )

Bu fang, within the kitchen set by his knife, feels as if he is empowered by the surrounding. Taking this opportunity, he takes out his ingredients and tosses them into the air, with quick movements, he prepares them in moments, faster than possible for the average man. Creating a meal so tantalizing even the undead are fascinated by it, keeping their attention on it, wishing for every second to be prolonged so that they can just enjoy the thought of eating this meal.

Edit: This power has been totally reconfigured. The two-step conditional is weird anyway, & fascinating things that don't eat w/ food is lame. Rather than be a highly leveraged pseudo stun lock, this power NOW serves a much more interesting role & relies on you doing what you do best - making people food.

As a Sabotaged item, it only works when people eat the meal - it can effect as many people as can sit down & eat that meal within 5ft. All of them stay fixated until the meal is complete & are at penalty for ALL your other effects while eating.

Even better, previously created fine meals could be stored for later use, so the 30 second cast time is irrelevant


Exert your Mind and spend 30 seconds to turn a fine meal into a trap. This trap lasts one day or until triggered or disarmed. Roll Charisma + Crafts at Difficulty 6.

The trap looks like a fine meal. Only those who have seen this trap before can identify it as a trap. Anyone who is aware of the trap may intuitively avoid, trigger, or destroy it.

Any Sapient, Living target within within 5 feet that uses the trap as a fine meal will trigger it. All affected targets may resist by rolling Mind at Difficulty 6.

When the trap is triggered, the targets will keep their full attention focused on the trap for contested Outcome in minutes. They will automatically fail any rolls related to noticing anything other than the trap. If they cannot perceive the trap through Smell for three Rounds, the Effect is broken. The Effect ends early if the target is Injured or violence occurs nearby.

This does not affect the target’s opinion of the trap or their mood, and they may take any Actions while affected (including attacking), as long as that action centers on the trap. Fascinated targets cannot Concentrate.

Fascinated targets are at a -2 dice penalty to any rolls they make to resist any other Effects that you attempt to use on them.

  • Triggering the trap requires an Action from the target, not merely an incidental glance.
  • Multiple traps cannot be placed in the exact same location or be triggered by the same single Action. Nor can one trap triggering cause another to trigger.
  • Trap can only be spotted by someone who has witnessed this particular trap before, has been informed, or possesses relevant supernatural abilities. They must achieve an Outcome of 4 or higher on a Perception + Alertness roll to do so.

Community Power Gifts

Exert your Mind (unless you win a coin flip) and spend at least one Action to activate. Select a Sapient target within 20 feet. This Effect cannot be used unless Have to open command with “excuse me…” and Target can understand what I say.. Communicate a command to your target. Roll Charisma + Influence at Difficulty 6. The target may resist by rolling Mind at Difficulty 7.

If the contested Outcome is positive, your target will be compelled to follow your command to their best understanding of the letter and spirit of the command until they have completed it or for your Outcome in minutes. You cannot issue another suggestion to the target until 10 minutes after they have completed the first command or 10 minutes after a failure.

The target is unaware that they are under supernatural influence and feel they are acting of their own free will. If you fail, they realize that you were attempting to influence them supernaturally with your command.

Your command can be an order to take an immediate Action and a conditional request. You cannot order a target to "do nothing," and they are free to take other Actions as they fulfill your request. Your command cannot be obviously self-endangering or self-destructive. The Effect ends if following your command would cause a target to cross one of their Limits in a way that would necessitate a Trauma roll.

You must have some means of communicating this command to your target, but no one other than you and them will understand or perceive it.

  • The target must be able to understand you and must receive your communication for the suggestion to work.
  • Allowed Commands
    • Conditional Request: implants a triggered response or latent order. (e.g. "when you see your mom, give her a kiss" or "when I give the signal, strip naked and pretend you're possessed by the devil.")
    • Direct Order: The target must take an immediate action (e.g. “Sit down,” "run away," or "tell me your password.")
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate.

You transform into A swarm of Vermin for the next minute. You may end the effect early and return to your normal form at will. Your structure must remain relatively contiguous. It is not necessarily obvious that your transformed state is an unusual phenomena or that it is acting with singular purpose.

While in this form, you can squeeze through any gap that a rodent could fit through.

Damage from standard attacks is halved, but damage from AOE effects is increased by 1.

You cannot communicate, use equipment, or use Gifts while transformed. Your equipment does not transform with you beyond basic body coverings. Carrying capacity is unaffected.

On the flight back from his first contract Angus dreamt... He dreamt of a frozen wasteland scattered with frozen corpses. A fearsome blizzard scourges the area making it nigh impossible to see further than 10 feet in front of him. the bitter cold cut into his skin forming frost on his fingers, nose, and ears almost immediately. after wondering though the wastes for what felt like an eternity he saw a light flickering against the winds. He trudged through the snow towards the light, fighting with every ounce of his being to not to drop down next to the scattered bodies that he passed. as he got closer to the light the ground consisted more of bodies than the snow below forcing him to crawl over the frozen remains toward his goal. finally reaching the light he fell to his knees in exhaustion seeing, not warmth, but a laughing woman kneeling in front of him. The words said there were lost to howling winds, but a pact was made and as hands were shaken he woke up still in his seat. His palms were wet from thawing and his breath was cold enough to constantly show his breath, in particular his mouth felt jagged and fresh as if he just ate a mint with water.
