All or Nothing! Either the enemy blows up, or they're someone else's problem now

1
The power to cause a destructive blast of damage in an area.
Used by Laxmi Cecil, Created by RuneQueen.
(Both the source of the effect, as well as the danger zone it creates, are obvious to observers. )

Laxmi begins to glow a bright orange, and as if she were a bundle of dynamite, an explosion destroys the area around her! Of course, there's also the chance that her fuse just fizzles out...


Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate. Roll a single d10, Difficulty 4. If you fail or botch, the Effect fails and you cannot activate it again for an hour. The area within 20 feet of you immediately and obviously becomes imminently dangerous. Roll Intellect + Brawl 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 you with Damage equal to your Outcome + 2. Armor is fully effective against this damage. If you botched the activation roll, you will also take full damage from the blast, otherwise it will not hurt you.

After you finish activating this Effect, you cannot move quicker than a walk (max 15 feet per Round) for one minute and suffer a -1 dice penalty for an hour.

  • If this Effect fails due to the Unreliable check, you must still pay any associated activation costs.
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.
