Intangible I'm not touching you!

This Artifact allows you to become completely intangible.
Used by Dr. Jenna Harkness, Created by Kamulis.
On Signature Item Ring of Phasing.
(While the effect is active, it is obvious to anyone who observes you that you are intangible. You must use this Artifact obviously when activating this Effect.)

When Dr Jenna Harkness uses this ring her body shimmers as if light was passing over glass. She is transparent and can not interact with objects in the world.


Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate.

You become intangible for the next 1 minute. Once you revert to your solid form, you cannot use this Power again for 1 hour.

While intangible, you take no damage from physical attacks, and many Effects will be unable to interact with you. You cannot use any of your own Gifts. You cannot touch or interact with things in the physical world.

You may “drop” any intangible items which are on your person. They become tangible again once you have let them go.

You may end this effect prematurely as a Free Action.

  • Effects that do not require a physical target may still affect you. It is ultimately at GMs discretion whether a given mystical or supernatural thing in a Scenario will impact intangible targets, but generally things with physical components will fail to work properly on you when you are in this state.
  • Any items and equipment on your person become intangible along with you. You can hold them and move them around, but they are intangible and thus will not work for their intended purposes.

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

  • "Equip" refers to drawing a gun, putting on a piece of armor, etc.
