1
You possess move incredibly fast.
Used by Wolfgang Buck, Created by leonvanderblight.
( )

Able to move at incredible speeds with incredible grace, these movements follow an eight-fold trigram pattern that allows Wolfgang to quite literally draw physical power from the underworld. Though, due to the strength not being his own, the martial magnate has yet to master the movements enough to adjust to the speed, though he does relish the adrenal rush that follows moving at such manic speeds.


You gain the following benefits at all times.

You can run at two 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.
