You possess an ability to partially hide from sight.
Used by Arthur Williamson, Created by Ravvie.

Artie's old-school nature bleeds into reality slightly, muffling any sounds that he makes.


You gain the following benefits at all times.

You are obscured in one of the following manners. You may Spend an Action to change the way in which you're concealed.

  • Hearing: You are completely obscured from hearing. You produce no sounds while this Effect is active. All attempts to detect you via hearing fail. Attempts via other senses where hearing would assist are rolled at -2 dice.

While this Effect is active, any Effect that would obscure you from other, additional senses fails automatically. If someone discovers you, this Effect will not help you hide from them for the next minute. This Effect does not end early when you activate an obvious Effect, attack, or receive an Injury.

Possession of this Power grants the following Battle Scar: Wheezing.

Possession of this Power grants the following Trauma at all times: Fun-Lover.

  • GMs should use their discretion when determining the exact impacts of this Effect, particularly in conjunction with environmental factors. Standing still against a complex background may render you impossible to detect, and footprints in snow may make it easy. A chance to detect you is not guaranteed.

Community Power Gifts

Zeta's limiters are dropped and extra radiators protrude from Zeta's back. The excessive heat melts the flesh and burns the cloths on Zeta's body revealing a mechanical nightmare that was hiding underneath.

Zeta's metal skeletal structure elongates to provide more leverage. The hands are revealed to be serrated claws. Zeta's now revealed chrome skull splits in half and the melted flesh drips away to reveal more mechanical eyes that over her entire head. Tooth caps fall away to reveal rows of sharp, pointy teeth.

Steam shoots out from under Zeta's revealed ribcage and bellows around her feet. Zeta's thigh bones split in two as they're revealed to be double and reverse jointed to provide greater maneuverability.

Zeta only has one thing left to say before the voice box is shutdown as it's power is diverted to combat prowess.

"Targets Acquired"

You transform into Battle Mode for 3 minutes. You have access to all of your Powers while you are Battle Mode, 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 Brawn is increased by 1, your Dexterity is increased by 1, and your Perception is increased by 1. You do not suffer any Stress while transformed.

Your alternate form is its own deadly weapon. Unarmed attacks made in your alternate form deal +3 Weapon Damage (instead of the typical -1).

Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation or for its duration will almost certainly be disturbed to see Obviously a murder Machine.

Your alternate form renders you unable to speak any human language and incapable of fine object manipulation. You can only hold or grasp objects in a crude, clumsy way.

Whenever you enter Combat, roll Self-Control. If you fail, you cannot choose which targets to attack and cannot stop fighting until there are no targets remaining.

  • Reminder: Weapon Damage from multiple sources does not stack. Instead, the highest value is used.
  • When narrating disturbing content, be cognizant of your group's tone and accommodating to those who would like to "fast forward" through the description.

  • Any door or restraint that is fastened or shut with a mechanism may be considered locked, at the GM's discretion. Can be used on control panels or other electronic locks, but not computer security systems.

  • 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.

You may choose to equip any equipment you withdraw at no additional cost.

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.
