(When activating this Effect, you are obviously changing your appearance. You must actively and obviously be using necklace.)

The Power on Nephyis has given me greater control over the shadows I can move about as needed and make the changes that she wishes. I focus on my ring and invoke her power then and only then can I change how I look while she changes me to the person I need to be.


Exert your Mind (unless Shadows/Darkness) and spend a minute to activate. You must actively and obviously use necklace to activate this Effect.

You become disguised in a manner of your choosing. The disguise lasts until you either activate a new disguise, or choose to end the effect.

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 may directly mimic the appearance of a specific individual. You may change the appearance of your clothes. A disguise cannot affect your Attributes or other stats.

After this Effect ends, you cannot move quicker than a walk for one minute and suffer a -1 dice penalty for an hour.

  • A performance check is generally required to pass with people who know the individual you're mimicking.
  • While you may alter your clothing's appearance, this does not grant or store equipment.
