works the item with a forge and hammer to increase its usefulness and reinforce the durablility


Take a Severity-1 Injury and spend an hour to activate. Select a non-Alien Device within arm's reach. Roll a single D10 as a critical failure check. If you roll a 1, the Effect fails, and you burns & broken item. You must actively and obviously use forge & smithy to activate this Effect. Can be used on Armor.

For the next day, your target receives 2 extra dice to all actions taken with its intended use. While it is upgraded, the item cannot be destroyed. If it is a piece of Armor, it instead receives half that amount as bonus armor rating, rounded up.

  • "Destroyed" in this context means "prevented from functioning for its primary purpose", so for instance, an upgraded land mine would still explode as normal if triggered, even though it cannot be "destroyed" and a car's windows may still be broken.
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

The art of illusions. To control the senses and manifest something that appears to be real, or to warp the world to create the facsimile of something real. What difference is there truly in such a act from creating? The answers lies in that it is only the degree to which one is able to enforce their will. In divinity, the power to do such becomes more evident every day, and now Leon's illusions are no longer merely as such so long as he is willing to commit his essence to it's creation. Though Leon can't help but ask as he becomes more in tune with this, is this truly what it feels to be divine? Because so much of this seems alien and not of himself.

This Effect cannot be used unless The illusion that is becoming a material must be made into an exact replica of the illusion. You must use up A katashiro in order to activate this Effect.

  • Sculpt: Sculpt a surface made of Illusions up to 80 feet by 80 feet. You may make aesthetic changes or minor functional improvements like a ladder or stairs. You may sculpt windows, doors, and similar alterations into structures you created with this Effect.
  • Wall: Create a straight wall made of Illusions up to 80 feet long, 20 feet high, and 24 inches thick. This wall can also be used to create a bridge, ramp, or similar. It must be free-standing.

The alteration begins to form when you activate this Effect and finishes forming on your initiative in the next Round. Until it finishes forming, it is not guaranteed to function.

This alteration lasts indefinitely but may be prematurely destroyed or altered. Your alterations may be broken through with appropriate tools. Anyone attempting to break through must roll Brawn + a relevant Ability. A cumulative Outcome of 12 across all attempts breaks a hole large enough to move through. See the extended system text for GM guidance on various tools.

You may sculpt your walls, domes, or tunnels as you create them, without any additional activation time or cost.

  • Attempting to break any alterations with inappropriate tools may damage or destroy the tools at the GM's discretion.

If you fail or botch, the Effect fails and you cannot activate it again for an hour. Roll Intellect + Medicine Difficulty 6. The target may contest by rolling Mind, Difficulty 6.

If the contested Outcome is positive, the target takes that much damage plus 3. The target's material Armor is completely ignored.
