Once, there was a man named Victor Green. He was a lonely man, isolated and withdrawn, and he preferred it this way. His one passion in life was the study of the occult, spending countless hours on research, mastering several languages just to find out more, eventually even betting his very life in a bid for yet more knowledge and with it, power. Unfortunately, he died, his soul parted from his body and cast down to the depths of the afterlife, until eventually, he found a way back. Reborn in a new body, Victors past life appears only in fragments, odd bits of knowledge that his new self, Neil, possesses without ever learning, promises unfulfilled that he simply must complete. But every day, as he rises from his slumber, Neil feels this voice in the back of his mind, whispering, saying, "I Remember".

  • Any Encumbrance penalty to your movement still applies, but you do not suffer from any sort of exhaustion.
  • Damage from a collision depends on your speed at the time, as well as what you hit. GM's discretion, but generally moving faster than a car on the freeway and hitting a dense, solid object like a wall or a tree should be lethal. Mundane armor will not apply, but any supernatural forms of protection will.

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 The sounds cause the flesh to writhe and knit itself back together.

It can be perceived by people through their sight. The illusion cannot be used as an attack. You may create a replica of a specific being or Object, though it is still limited by what you do or do not know about the subject.

Anyone who touches the illusion (or who would be able to perceive it significantly through a sense it cannot fool) realizes it is an illusion, and the entire effect will be ended for all targets.

The illusion will remain fixed to its initial target, and can only change locations if the initial target is mobile in some way. It may have moving parts and engage in simple, predetermined movements but cannot perform anything complex or interactive unless you maintain Concentration and “puppeteer” it.

  • while you can use an illusion to obscure something smaller, you cannot make anything directly invisible (you can’t make a tank look like a regular baseball, but you can hide it in an illusion of a giant baseball).
  • You may only puppeteer a single illusion at once.
