Neo-Adrenaline "Cant stop, Wont stop"

1
You possess move incredibly fast.
Used by Eros, Created by Polyhedron20.
( You must actively and obviously be using Your Goggles.)

Eros' scars glow bright shades of neon color, trailing slower than her rapidly speeding up movements. Eventually, she is not more than a rough outline of herself, a bright glowing skeleton taking her place, trailing her every movement.


You gain the following benefits as long as You're High. You must actively and obviously be using Your Goggles to gain the benefits of this Effect.

You can run at four times your normal movement speed.

If you move faster than your normal move speed, the world around you turns to a blur, and Perception rolls are made at -3 dice.

  • 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.

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

Ever since the incident Charlie has been changing for the worst. First it starts with blood in his vomit and urine, then blistering skin, and finally after his body decayed he seemed to just, heal. It’s like this never happened to him, however over night he rapidly mutated into what he is today.

You gain the following benefits at all times.

You are permanently and visibly transformed: Ooze in the shape of a man. You are considered to be a Sapient, Living being when targeted..

No single organ in your body is critical for life. If any of your body parts are separated from your body, you may take Actions with the severed part for three hours. You may reattach severed body parts by spending an Action and Exerting your Mind.

While in Radioactive Environments, heat, cold, pressure, and other atmospheric hazards do not affect you, and dangerous local flora and fauna will not bother you unless you give them a reason.

You can squeeze through any cracks and passageways a cat would be able to.

Any creature that consumes or is injected with your bodily fluids receives a Severity-1 Injury. Every minute, they must roll Body Difficulty 9. If they fail, the Injury worsens by 1 Severity. If they succeed, the Injury stops worsening.

You cannot be mistaken for a normal human. You cannot always use standard human clothes, equipment, vehicles, and facilities, and when you can, you suffer an increased Difficulty.

You are incapable of fine object manipulation and can only hold or grasp things in a crude, clumsy way.

The Severity of any Injury caused by cold is increased by 2.

  • Detached parts move at 5 feet per Round. You may activate awareness Effects through detached sensory organs. This does not grant extra Actions.
  • The increase in Injury Severity stacks with any similar effects, such as the Silver Bullets drawback on Regeneration.
  • Attribute bonuses from multiple sources do not stack. Instead the highest bonus is used.

Because this power is dependent on Bob's belief in his acting, certain conditions can limit this power. Bob has to be able to act out his trick (potentially requiring rolls, especially for complicated tricks.) I myself have to be able to logically explain how his trick works. He can not simply lift something at a distance. He has to mime out a pole, or rope slung over something above. A glass of water would be beyond his abilities to simply lift at a distance.

Due to the fact that this is all based on belief, shattering that belief by playing along with it actually has an effect. If Bob is floating with an illusionary balloon, and someone targets the balloon, it will pop, ending the effect. Cutting a rope he is pulling will end the effect. kicking out the chair he's sitting on will end the effect.

His miming it an act, and hence sometimes takes time to do. Using his "Fishing pole" to pull an item to him in combat would take at least a round to set up, as he would have to mime out pulling out the fishing pole, setting up the cast in a way that shows it's a fishing pole, and then making the actual cast. GM's should keep this in mind, and are free to debate the length of time it would take to act something out like this. Bob does not simply pull something out of his pocket, he must make an act that lets people know exactly what it is he just pulled out of his pocket for it to have any effect. Picking up a "rock" off the ground and lobbing it at someone, probably doesn't need a lot of set up.

You gain the following benefits as long as Must Mime out the actions to explain the 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 4 in place of your Brawn rating, a Mental Agility of 1 in place of your Dexterity, and otherwise use your own Attributes and Abilities.

Telekinetic actions have the following restrictions and behaviors:

  • 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 can use this Effect to deal damage through unarmed attacks, grapples, and thrown objects. Attacks deal +1 Damage. Unarmed Mastery does not apply.
  • 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.
  • Maintaining Focus: You must maintain Concentration while taking Actions in this way. If you are Injured or interrupted, you must roll Mind at Difficulty 9 to maintain Concentration. If you fail, you cannot engage in telekinetic actions for the next 6 - Intellect rounds.
  • Levitation: If you are strong enough to lift yourself, you may levitate up to within 75 feet away from the ground. Movement is limited to 5 feet per Round.
  • Multiple Items: You can only interact with one thing or take one Action at a time.

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

You gain the following benefits as long as you are engaged in unarmed combat.

+2 dice to rolls for Attacking, Defending, and Clashing without a weapon. Unarmed attacks do +0 Weapon Damage (instead of -1). The target's Armor is fully effective against this damage.

Possession of this Power grants the following Battle Scar: weak spot on back.

You also gain the following effects:

  • Armored Fist: You cannot take Damage from attacking a dangerous material (such as steel armor, a spiked carapace, or an acidic blob). You may Defend against melee, projectile, or firearm attacks from any range and Clash with those in range of your attacks.
  • Flow Like Water: If you win a Clash or successfully prevent an attack by Defending, you may instead redirect the incoming attack to another target within range. If you Defend, the redirected attack uses your positive Outcome after defending, if you Clash it uses the outcome in entirety if you win.

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

You gain the following benefits at all times.

You have 5 Armor, which only reduces damage taken from Attacks from Melee Range. Any armor piercing effects from Attacks from Melee Range are ignored. Armor from multiple sources does not stack.

Any time your Armor prevents damage, your total Armor rating is temporarily decreased by 1. Whenever you go two Rounds without preventing any damage, it is restored back to its full value.

  • Armor recharging happens automatically and does not require an Action.

All attempts to detect you using sight are rolled at a -3 dice penalty, and all attempts to detect you where sight would assist are rolled at -1 penalty.
