The power to transfer Injuries, Mind, and Source between targets.
Used by Kitty Lundstrum, Created by geniebottle.
(Anyone who witnesses you activate this Effect is very likely to be disturbed to see a feeling of terrible discomfort washes over the surrounding people. )

Kitty can steal the gifts and strength of others by pulling the supernatural gifts out of them.


Exert your Mind and spend an Action. Select a Sapient target within arm's reach. Roll a single D10 as a critical failure check. If you roll a 1, the Effect fails, and you suffer a Traumatic Brain Injury. You must make a Trauma roll when you use this Effect. Its Difficulty cannot be reduced by any means. If a target does not consent to the transfer, you must roll Perception + Occult at Difficulty 6 to use the effect on them. They can resist by rolling either Body or Mind at Difficulty 6, depending on what you are attempting to transfer to them.

You may choose one each of as many things as you like from the following to transfer from your target to yourself, or from yourself to them:

  • Up to 3 points of an Attribute. Lasts 2 hours. The giver suffers a penalty of up to -3 dice to all rolls using that Attribute, capped at their rating. The receiver gets the same dice as a bonus to all rolls using the Attribute.
  • A single Power. Lasts two hours. You cannot transfer this Power.
This Effect cannot be used again on the same target for the next hour.

Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation will almost certainly be disturbed to see a feeling of terrible discomfort washes over the surrounding people.

Whenever you transfer an Injury, it's Severity increases by 1. Whenever you transfer Mind damage or Traumas, the recipient takes an additional Mind damage.

  • Transferred Attribute ratings do NOT affect Body or Mind scores but DO affect Body and Mind rolls if a relevant Attribute has been drained, as well as encumbrance, movement, and other mechanics related to the Attribute in question. Dice bonuses and penalties from multiple activations do not stack.
  • When narrating disturbing content, be cognizant of your group's tone and accommodating to those who would like to "fast forward" through the description.
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.
  • Your target must be within line of sight, or within range of another sense if more fitting for the Gift's flavor.

Community Targeted Gifts

Exert your Mind and spend 1 minute. Select a Living target within arm's reach. You cannot target yourself. Your target must also Exert their Mind to activate this Effect. Choose a specific Injury on your target that has not yet been treated with this Effect and roll Intellect + Melee at Difficulty 6.

If you succeed, the Injury is reduced in Severity by your Outcome. If you reduce its Severity to 0, the Injury is fully healed. Otherwise, it is partially healed and will heal the rest of the way at its natural rate.

This counts as a successful Makeshift Stabilization if the Injury was not already Stabilized; any Battle Scars caused by the Injury will remain.

  • Unstabilized wounds do not degenerate during treatment.
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.
  • Your target must be within line of sight, or within range of another sense if more fitting for the Gift's flavor.

The area within 20 feet of the chosen Location immediately and obviously becomes imminently dangerous. Roll Brawn + Alertness at Difficulty 6. Targets inside the radius may attempt an appropriate Reaction at GM’s discretion. Finding a physical barrier to use as cover will cut total damage taken in half (applies after Reaction roll but before Armor).

If the Outcome is positive, your blast hits everything within 20 feet of the chosen Location with Damage equal to your Outcome + 2. Armor is fully effective against this damage.

Any flammable Objects within the radius during the blast will catch fire, and any being who takes at least 4 damage will have their hair and clothes catch fire.

It is a manifestation of his deep connection to the plant kingdom and his knowledge of the medicinal properties of plants. When he uses this ability, he is able to quickly identify plants around him that have healing properties and extract their active ingredients accurately and efficiently.

Additionally, his Botanical Healing ability allows him to create more complex and powerful healing potions by combining various medicinal plants in specific proportions to achieve desired effects. These potions can restore life energy, heal illnesses, and even invigorate the body and mind of those who consume them.

Audiences or mobs with a singular focus count as one target. This Effect cannot be used unless your grit is active. You must actively and obviously use crowbar to activate this Effect. Roll Charisma + Melee at Difficulty 6. All affected targets may resist by rolling Mind at Difficulty 7.

If you succeed, the targets will keep their full attention focused on you for contested Outcome in Rounds. They will automatically fail any rolls related to noticing anything other than you.

If you pass from their perception and they are unable to pursue you, the Effect ends. If they can follow you, they must do so for 2 Rounds or the Effect will end. The Effect will continue even if violence occurs nearby or if your target is Injured. It does end if the target takes Damage from a source other than you.

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

You may activate this Effect as a Reaction to contest any Action a valid target is taking. The target does not roll to resist, and beating their Outcome does not fascinate them.

You do not leave your original body behind when you possess a target. When a possession ends, your original body will reappear at the host body’s same location. You may spend an Action to end the possession early.

Stats: During the possession, you use the host body’s Body rating, but your own Mind rating. Any rolls you make use the host body’s Brawn, Dexterity, and Perception but your own Charisma, Intellect, and Abilities. You gain the effects of any physical Assets and Liabilities they have. You cannot read the target’s mind or memories.

Gifts: You have access to and can use any of your own Powers which are not intrinsic to your biology or physical body. You cannot access any Powers or other supernatural effects which the target has, unless they are intrinsic to the target’s biology or physical body.

You may ask specific questions about their memory - “what is their computer password,” “What were they doing at 4:00PM yesterday,” etc - but you cannot get answers to broad, analytical questions like “are they a good person?” or “what are their plans for the future?”

Each question takes as long as it takes to answer to read. When replaying a full memory, it is replayed in double time.

This Effect is not obvious, and the only sign you are using an Effect is your nose bleeding. If someone suspects that an Effect was used, they must roll Perception + Alertness, Difficulty 8 to pick up on your Tell.
