Feign Death "Oh gross!"

1
The power to transform into your own corpse.
Used by Mothman, Created by Redchigh.
(You appear as an object that looks like you. )

The slightest serious wound on Mothman, cuts through his skin like tissue paper, spilling guts and slime everywhere, and he dies in seconds.

A minute later, he may stir, or not. Shaken by the awareness of his recent death and the mental reckoning of another body shoved into it's place, one from another universe. Mostly similiar, but one where the wound was much less severe.


This Effect activates whenever Taking a level 2 or greater injury. It does not require an Action or Exertion. “Your target should be intuitively based on the triggering event. You must make a Trauma roll when you use this Effect. Its Difficulty cannot be reduced by any means.

You transform into your own corpse for one minute. While transformed, you may control the functioning of the object you have transformed into. You can perceive your surroundings as normal. You can be targeted as a Non-Living, Sapient Object.
