The power to change your appearance.
Used by Stanley "Stan" Dardman, Created by _i_n_v_i_s_i_b_l_e.
(When activating this Effect, you are obviously changing your appearance. )

Subject O-8 has demonstated increased precision when utilizing its colour and shape changing abilities. on more than one occasion it has been found capable of a decently accurate approximation of a human being, capable of fooling most people at a glance.

During the action of "disguising" itself it will cause its body to wriggle and bulge slightly for exactly 60 seconds before rapidly shifting in both colour and shape into its desired form, transformation seems to last for a maximum of two hours before reverting.


Exert your Mind and spend a minute.

You become disguised in a manner of your choosing. The disguise lasts for two hours, or you may end it early at will. Your disguise will not hold up to close scrutiny.

The new appearance may have a different sex, age, and race to your own, and you may alter height by up to a foot and your weight by 50%. Your disguise cannot directly mimic an existing person. You cannot alter your clothes. You may add inhuman features to your disguise. A disguise cannot affect your Attributes or other stats.

You may roll Charisma + Crafts to attempt to make your disguise Beautiful. If your Outcome is 6 or higher, non-Effect Charisma rolls where your good looks could help are rolled at -2 Difficulty. If you fail or botch, you are ugly instead, and non-Effect Charisma rolls are made at +2 Difficulty.

While disguised, you cannot use any Activated or Targeted Powers.

  • While you can add inhuman features, they are aesthetic only. Think star trek alien, monstergirl, demon, etc. Does not grant things such as a prehensile tail, an extra damaging brawl attack, improved senses, etc.
  • ‘Appearance’ includes voice, bone structure, skin quality, hair length and color, eye color, muscle tone, flesh texture, and generally anything perceivable about your body.

Exert your Mind and spend one minute.

You automatically detect all objects designed to hurt people, including explosives and weapons within 50 feet of you for the next hour. You have a clear sense of both the distance and direction towards any detected items. When you detect objects, instead of learning nothing about them, you may observe each object with all of your senses.

  • This includes any objects that come into range during activation.

Exert your Mind and spend an Action. This Effect cannot be used unless the user is in the dark.

You gain an additional limb that functions as a standard human arm and hand. Lasts two hours.

Each additional limb you posses can take one Quick Action per Round without incurring a -2 dice penalty to your main Action. Any Battle Scars that affect or remove your additional limb will heal in a single week.

Your extra appendage can be used to attack in exactly the same manner as a Sword.

Your appendage is selectively incorporeal, allowing you to reach through walls or ignore grapples on it.

Your extra appendage is not connected to your nervous or circulatory systems, and you will not take damage if it is hit by an attack or destroyed.

Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation or for its duration will almost certainly be disturbed to see the user's shadow seemingly come to life and take the form of a black tendril that writhes and wriggles violently as if it is a trapped creature, anything this tendril touches while corporeal will leave a dark wet stain on the surface touched.

  • Your limb's incorporeal-ness doesn't enhance your attacks in any way.
  • When narrating disturbing content, be cognizant of your group's tone and accommodating to those who would like to "fast forward" through the description.

Exert your Mind and spend an Action.

You phase out of reality for 4 Rounds. During this time, you cannot affect the outside world or take any Actions. You cannot move. Nothing can interact with you in any way.

  • You may use your Free Movement on the Round you phase back in, but you cannot take an Action.

Expend a point of Battery and spend an Action.

You automatically detect all the lgbt within 300 feet of you for the next hour. This includes any who come within range during the duration. You have a sense of how many valid targets are nearby, as well as their distance and direction.

Even while this Effect is not active, if any the lgbt come within 300 feet of you, you may roll Perception + Alertness, Difficulty 7 to detect them.

Even if there are no the lgbt within 300 feet of you, you become aware of the direction the closest one is in, as well as a rough sense of its distance from you.

All the lgbt who you can sense are equally able to sense you.

Exert your Mind and spend an Action.

You transform into Esmerelda for 30 minutes. You have access to all of your Powers while you are Esmerelda, and you can use your equipment. Your Battle Scars, Injuries, and physical Liabilities are carried over between forms. Reverting from your Alternate Form cannot cause your existing Injuries to kill you. Instead, you remain Incapacitated.

While transformed, your Charisma is increased by 1. Your Stress is reduced by 2.

While transformed, instead of your normal clothes and equipment, you are equipped with: Witch Outfit

You may end this Effect prematurely as a Free Action.

Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation or for its duration will almost certainly be disturbed to see The transformation starts with the user dissolving into a pile of group. Then, the outline of a Nervous System is etched onto the liquid. Then, the goop begins to stand as it extends what would be it's arms out. Bones form into the liquid and skin covers the bones. The head of the body forms, albeit some details are missed, such as the ears, instead only having holes at the side of the face. The transformation ends when a loud heartbeat is heard. All other contractors and people nearby (in a 30ft radius) will be able to hear this...

You may only use this Effect once per day.

  • When narrating disturbing content, be cognizant of your group's tone and accommodating to those who would like to "fast forward" through the description.

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.

Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation or for its duration will almost certainly be disturbed to see you drink blood directly from the vein.
