This Effect activates whenever the target is shot via "Aspect of Enmity". It does not require an Action or Exertion. Select a target within 300 feet. “Your target should be intuitively based on the triggering event.

Your target is marked with the Stain of Enmity. The mark can only be discovered with a deep medical inspection or Effect. Removal inflicts a Severity 1 Injury on the target.

You are aware of the marked target's vital status, injuries, direction and distance from you. This lasts for an hour, or until either the mark is removed, or you choose to end the Effect. This Artifact can have up to 1 mark active.

You may activate another Effect through your Mark as though you were standing at its location. This destroys the Mark.

You receive +2 dice to any rolls made against a marked target.

  • When triggered, the Effect activation resolves immediately after the triggering Action. It is not Reaction speed.
  • Marked individuals satisfy the line of sight requirement for targeted Effects.
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.
  • Your target must be within line of sight, or within range of another sense if more fitting for the Gift's flavor.

They have dog-level intelligence, and cannot communicate back to you. Any Perception checks they make are rolled with 3 dice.

Your minions can fly at their normal movement speed.

Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation or for its duration will almost certainly be disturbed to see you coughing violently as you puke up a small squid like creature covered in black mucus.
