The power to cause a destructive blast of damage in an area.
Used by Makara Apsara (WIP), Created by SamrinSamrin.
(Both the source of the effect, as well as the danger zone it creates, are obvious to observers. You must actively and obviously be using A staff, stave, or otherwise rod..)

From the edge of his stave erupts a terrible blast of flame and fire! You manage to just barely duck behind a wall, but your friends aren't so lucky. As their wreathed by the hellfire, their bodies begin to char and smolder, before eventaully, their reduced to ash in mere seconds.


Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate. Select a Location no further than 50 feet from you and in your line of sight. You must actively and obviously use A staff, stave, or otherwise rod. to activate this Effect. The area within 20 feet of the chosen Location immediately and obviously becomes imminently dangerous. Roll Intellect + Occult at Difficulty 6. Targets inside the radius may attempt an appropriate Reaction at GM’s discretion. Finding a physical barrier to use as cover will cut total damage taken in half (applies after Reaction roll but before Armor).

If the Outcome is positive, your blast hits everything within 20 feet of the chosen Location with Damage equal to your Outcome + 2. Armor is fully effective against this damage.

Any flammable Objects within the radius during the blast will catch fire, and any being who takes at least 4 damage will have their hair and clothes catch fire.

  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

There is countless amount of scars inflicted upon the world. Some of them are deep - major historical figures that wage wars of conquests and forge empires, events that change course of history. Some of them can hardly be called scars at all - animals, humans and products of their activity, such as languages, texts, machinery, as well as the dead.

Rite of Secret Histories is a ritual which allows the one performing the rite to "read" said scars for an hour, though scope of this specific version of a rite is limited quite limited.
