Tactical Retreat "Aw heck no!"

1
The power to temporarily gain a burst of speed.
Used by Andrew Guy, Created by shotgunwizard22.
( )

Andrew Guy is very good at running away from danger, to the point that his speed massively increases when he does so.


Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate. This Effect cannot be used unless Running away from danger.

You can run at three times your normal movement speed for the next minute.

While running, you may climb, jump, and roll without breaking stride, but you are at 1/2 speed while doing so.

  • 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.

Gloves on, Almost like manipulating the string on a puppet, Jay fingers bend and moves in odd shapes as he manipulates objects in front of him to put on a show for the audience

Physics wise, Jay uses the gloves as attachments for his invisible strings as they burn his fingers and nearly chops them off without it.


You gain the following benefits at all times. You must actively and obviously be using Gloves to gain the benefits of this Effect.

You can interact with things that are within 75 feet without needing to physically touch them or be near them. Any rolls made for Actions taken in this way use a Mental Strength of 2 in place of your Brawn rating, a Mental Agility of 2 in place of your Dexterity, and otherwise use your own Attributes and Abilities.

Telekinetic actions have the following restrictions and behaviors:

  • Reactions: You cannot use a Reaction telekinetically.
  • Multiple Items: You may control 2 total objects at the same time.
  • Line of Sight: You must be able to visually observe anything you interact with, and any actions that you are taking will end if their target moves out of sight.
  • Unarmed Combat: You cannot deal damage through unarmed combat or thrown objects with this Effect, though you may still grapple with targets.
  • Weapons: You cannot wield weapons effectively in combat.
  • Fine Tools: You are otherwise limited to actions that a normal human could do with their bare hands.

  • Any telekinetic actions which interact with Animate targets may require contested rolls at GMs discretion.

The bonds that people carry with them often defy reason. Between their tribe, their friends, and their enemies. These bonds transcend time, space, and language. Amaranth's newest power allows him to piggyback on these bonds, and to deliver messages across them. Though it requires a symbol and an oath to cement that bond, these feelings can be transmitted and understood across vast distances and in turn, grant some of the understanding that so many people lack of each other and in turn allow for communication without the restraints of words.


Spend an Action to activate. Select a number of targets up to your Mind rating within 10 miles of you. You must have specific targets in mind, but you require only an intuitive understanding of them, such as their name, face, or Location. This Effect cannot be used unless Must have sworn an oath of brotherhood with Amaranth and Must possess a replica of the pendant. You must actively and obviously use Brotherhood Pendant to activate this Effect.

You open up a line of conversation to your targets, and may continue speaking with them without any additional Exertion cost for as long as you maintain Concentration

The conversation will only be perceived by the intended recipient. You must share a common language for your target to understand the message.

This Gift's level is capped at 2 Gifts and cannot be increased further.

  • Receiving a message does not force a target to pay attention to you, and they can feel free to ignore your message if they choose. Depending on the flavor of your Gift, they may or may not be able to return to it and read it later on.
  • Generally you cannot communicate with Contractors who are not in a Contract with you.

  • Unlike the Ability Brawl, this Effect does not affect small weapons such as knives.

The Harbinger has introduced the Monk to an old master who has accepted him as a pupil. Their training is brutal, but effective. Weeks of driving his hands into piles of sand has hardened them into frightful weapons.

The Monk is capable of catching swords by the blade and does not fear spiked armor. Further, the attacks of their hardened hands are truly deadly.

Finally, the girls are fusing the way they’ve wanted to since they began Contracting, three and a half years ago. It took Grace’s left eye for them to try this, but the girls are now able to spend a week focusing their energy towards a Battle Scarred area and permanently replacing it with The Spirit’s ghostly flesh. The replaced chunks, eyes, arms, whatever may come, appear just as The Spirit’s: bluish and semi-transparent, but now function just as the respective physical flesh would.


You gain the following benefits at all times.

Any Injury you receive heals quickly, reducing its Severity by one level every three days, starting once it becomes stabilized. Battle Scars caused by your Injuries are also healed when the Injuries that caused them regenerate.

Possession of this Power grants the following Battle Scar: any scars that heal this way leave the flesh in that area bluish and semi-transparent, causing you to be viewed as a freak by most people who see you.

The Necromancer may exert their will on any undead creature, forcing it to act as they desire. The Necromancer's eyes turn completely black, and they speak a command to the creature in the language of the dead.


Exert your Mind and spend at least one Action to activate. Select a Sapient target within 20 feet. This Effect cannot be used unless the target is undead. Communicate a command to your target. Roll Charisma + Occult at Difficulty 6. The target may resist by rolling Mind at Difficulty 7.

If the contested Outcome is positive, your target will be compelled to follow your command to their best understanding of the letter and spirit of the command until they have completed it or for your Outcome in minutes. You cannot issue another suggestion to the target until 10 minutes after they have completed the first command or 10 minutes after a failure.

The target is unaware that they are under supernatural influence and feel they are acting of their own free will. If you fail, they realize that you were attempting to influence them supernaturally with your command.

Your command can be an order to take an immediate Action. You cannot order a target to "do nothing," and they are free to take other Actions as they fulfill your request. Your command cannot be obviously self-endangering or self-destructive. The Effect ends if following your command would cause a target to cross one of their Limits in a way that would necessitate a Trauma roll.

You must have some means of communicating this command to your target, but no one other than you and them will understand or perceive it.

  • The target must be able to understand you and must receive your communication for the suggestion to work.
  • Allowed Commands
    • Direct Order: The target must take an immediate action (e.g. “Sit down,” "run away," or "tell me your password.")

The Vampire was cursed to forever be a vile creature of the night! Their skin has faded to a deathly pale, only regaining something close to human complexion in the immediate aftermath of feeding on human blood. They are weakened when exposed to direct sunlight or when they have been unable to feed in the past day, but otherwise has gained inhuman strength, speed, and irresistibility from their devil's bargain.


You gain the following benefits as long as you have fed on fresh human blood in the past 24 hours and you are not in direct sunlight.

You are permanently and visibly transformed: a seductive and powerful humanoid, with pale skin and wicked fangs. You are considered to be a Sapient, Non-Living being when targeted. Your Brawn is increased by 1, your Dexterity is increased by 1, and your Charisma is increased by 1.

Your Injuries no longer degrade with time.

The Severity of any Injury caused by fire and heat is increased by 2.

By focusing, the Thief may shroud their hands in shadowy tendrils that seek nearby objects like static-charged hairs. They cast themselves across any surface the Thief touches, acting as anchors that allow the Thief to scale even the sheerest walls.


Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate.

You may move easily and without a roll in any of the following situations. Lasts 1 hour.

  • Spider Climber: You are able to climb on and cling to any surface without regard for the ordinary rules of gravity. You climb at your normal movespeed.
