Spiritual Blademastery

1
You possess a mastery of longswords.
Used by Robert "Xy" King, Created by Xystian.

Every attack the user makes with a longsword seems to carry a level of control to it, their eyes left with clear focus with every strike.
Each of the user's attacks leaves a faint white, misty trail behind it, as every strike is bolstered by the user's intense focus given energetic form.


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

+2 dice to all rolls with longswords. You may Defend against firearm attacks from any range using longswords.

You also gain the following effects:

  • Dismember: If one of your attacks causes a Battle Scar, you may choose for it to be some form of dismemberment, depending on the Severity of the Injury you caused.
  • Falling Crane Strike: If you move and then make a successful attack against a target closer than the full distance you could have moved, you may choose to travel the excess movement in a straight line beyond the target.

After the incident with the stranger, some terrible rumors sprouted from the disappearance. A bunny, too, disappeared from class during the time that Guppy was supposed to take care of it. Guppy didn't have many friends after this. That was when he took his needle to his already made plushies. He put down his dinosaur and made some new seams into the dino using his needle and some thread... and it sprouted to life! Guppy was the one who got hugged this time, just like he wanted when he tried something new with his dinosaur. Now it was the time for hiding as, one day, the bunny returned to class. But it was different. The bunny was a lot more... fluffy than before. Softer. But no child paid any mind to it. As long as they said it was a bunny, the bunny was a bunny, right? And if there was a problem, surely the bunny would squeak up about it.

Exert your Mind and spend one minute to activate. Select a toys within arm's reach which could fit inside a briefcase (15 liters). You must actively and obviously use a needle to activate this Effect.

Your target will become Animated indefinitely. You may choose to end the effect at will, as a Free Action. You can maintain a max of 4 targets animated at once.

Animated Objects have the following restrictions and capabilities:

  • Awareness: Animated targets are capable of perceiving the world around them within reasonable limits. Animated objects can communicate information back to you by squeaking.
  • Movement: Animated targets can use an existing method of locomotion (wheels, etc); otherwise they can move across the ground at 15 feet per round, or hover up to a height of 7 feet in the air at 10 feet per round.
  • Toughness: Animated targets are as easy to destroy as they were prior to being animated.
  • Ability Use: If an action requires a roll, Animated objects have a dice pool of 5 when performing a task for which they were designed, and a dice pool of 3 for taking any other actions.
  • Combat: Animated objects cannot take offensive actions in combat.
  • Artifacts: Animating an Artifact does not grant the animated object access to any Effects built in to that Artifact.
  • Following Orders: Animated objects are controlled by the GM, but they are capable of following complicated, multi-part commands that you give to them.

  • Animated objects must communicate verbally, and they must be near enough for you to hear them in order to communicate.
  • A task for which an object was designed might include a broom sweeping, a gun shooting things, a car driving, a towel rubbing up on stuff, etc.
  • Animated objects may be more or less susceptible to certain attacks at GMs discretion. A scarecrow golem would be easily destroyed by a sword (or fire). An animated suit of armor may not fear bullets but could be smashed to bits with a hammer. A full bronze statue is largely indestructible but might have difficulty standing up if toppled.
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.
