The power to partially hide from sight.
Used by Ains Ladeen, Created by MonsterCookie9.

For when things get too tight, Ains has learnt the capability to almost literally "tune" himself out of any conversation or interaction, when activated, everyone and everything within sight suddenly and seemingly begins to lose interest in Ains, as if the part of their brain that acknowledged Ains was shut off.


Exert your Mind and spend an Action.

You are obscured in one of the following manners. Lasts 30 minutes.

  • Sight:You are partially obscured from being noticed by sight. All attempts to detect you using sight are rolled at a -3 dice penalty, and all attempts to detect you where sight would assist are rolled at -1 penalty. Anyone who detects you cannot determine any visual details about you beyond your general shape.

While this Effect is active, any Effect that would obscure you from other, additional senses fails automatically. If someone discovers you, this Effect will not help you hide from them for the next minute. Activating a targeted or obvious Effect, attacking, or being Injured ends the Effect. When the Effect ends, it is disabled for one minute.

  • GMs should use their discretion when determining the exact impacts of this Effect, particularly in conjunction with environmental factors. Standing still against a complex background may render you impossible to detect, and footprints in snow may make it easy. A chance to detect you is not guaranteed.

Community Activated Gifts

Spend an Action.

You may withdraw an item from your stash, or add an item that is within arm’s reach to your stash. You may only stash targets which are in your possession, grappled, or otherwise controlled by you.

You may store Objects in your stash, each no larger than something which could fit inside a briefcase (15 liters), and you may store up to 3 things at a time.

  • Containers which hold multiple things may count as a single item so long as the things within are generally packaged together. For instance, you may stash a clip full of bullets, a medical kit full of medical supplies, or a box of crackers, but you cannot stash a backpack full of miscellaneous equipment.
  • You may only attempt to store Objects which are free-standing and disconnected from other things. The use of this Effect will not allow you to sever any connections holding an Object in place.
  • The Maximum Object Size parameter is intended to roughly capture the weight / size restriction of items and isn’t intended to restrict shape. GM discretion is advised. A human being is level 4 in the Maximum Object Size parameter.

Exert your Mind (unless you win a coin flip) and spend an Action to activate. You must use up Acupuncture Needles in order to activate this Effect.

Your Body Penalty is reduced to 0. Lasts for one hour. Does not reduce Mind Penalty.

You may move at your normal speed and still maintain Concentration.

Exert your Mind and spend an Action. Make a Trauma roll when you activate this Effect.

You may levitate off the ground at three times your normal walking speed. The effect lasts for the next minute, though you may choose to end it at will.

While in the air, your move speed and encumbrance are based on your rating in Mind instead of your Brawn and Dexterity.

  • You may now carry up to (15 * Mind rating) pounds without being encumbered while levitating. You suffer a -1 dice and movement penalty per 15 pounds you carry over their limit.
  • Any penalties to dice or movement, including from Encumbrance, are applied as normal. If your movement is reduced to 0 due to encumbrance, you will begin to sink down to the ground.
  • You may activate this Effect while in midair, allowing you to slow and survive any free fall.

Use up this Black Wispy Gumball and spend 15 minutes. Roll 11 dice Difficulty 6, dice penalties do not apply.

If you succeed, the Injury is reduced in Severity by your Outcome. If you reduce its Severity to 0, the Injury is fully healed. Otherwise, it is partially healed and will heal the rest of the way at its natural rate.

This counts as a successful Makeshift Stabilization if the Injury was not already Stabilized; any Battle Scars caused by the Injury will remain.

If your Outcome is greater than the Severity of the Injury you were attempting to treat, you may apply any excess Outcome to other Injuries on yourself.

Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation or for its duration will almost certainly be disturbed to see Tendrils from the gum wiggle inside the targets mouth as they go from mouth to wound. They travel visibily under the skin like little worms. Once they reach the wound, they plop onto the raw flesh and start filling the wound and squirming like maggots.

  • When narrating disturbing content, be cognizant of your group's tone and accommodating to those who would like to "fast forward" through the description.
  • This consumable is destroyed when used and cannot be used again.
  • Unstabilized wounds do not degenerate during treatment.

Exert your Mind and Spend an Action to activate. You must use up a piece of meat in order to activate this Effect. Roll Charisma + Crafts at Difficulty 6.

If you succeed, you create a Barrier around yourself, which absorbs the next Outcome + 2 Damage. The Damage reduction from the Barrier is applied before Armor, and is treated like Armor by any effects such as Armor Penetration. You may only have 1 active barrier at a time.

The Barrier will fall after an hour, or if it absorbs the full amount of damage. When a Barrier falls, you cannot use this Effect again for a minimum of 2 Rounds.
