Tap Into Ancestry

2
The power to temporarily transform into a humanoid Alaskan Malamute werewolf.
Used by Charlie Blackstone, Created by Iamangelofwar.
(While you are a humanoid Alaskan Malamute werewolf, you are obviously transformed and unusual. )

Charlotte ordered an ancestry kit from Genwild, and along with it came a bottle of pills labeled “Genetic De-Ressessors”, noted as “payment for a good few day’s work” after taking them, her body began to shift under her command, into a half human half wolf form. It sharpens her senses and turns her paws into deadly weapons, at the usual cost.


Exert your Mind and spend an Action.

You transform into a humanoid Alaskan Malamute werewolf for 30 minutes. You have access to all of your Powers while you are a humanoid Alaskan Malamute werewolf, and you can use your equipment. Your Battle Scars, Injuries, and physical Liabilities are carried over between forms. Reverting from your Alternate Form cannot cause your existing Injuries to kill you. Instead, you remain Incapacitated.

While transformed, your Attributes are the same. Your Stress is reduced by 2.

Your body is adapted to tracking. You receive +3 dice on non-attack rolls related to tracking.

Your alternate form is its own deadly weapon. Unarmed attacks made in your alternate form deal +3 Weapon Damage (instead of the typical -1).

You may end this Effect prematurely as a Free Action.

Your alternate form renders you unable to speak any human language and incapable of fine object manipulation. You can only hold or grasp objects in a crude, clumsy way.

You may only use this Effect once per day.

  • Reminder: Weapon Damage from multiple sources does not stack. Instead, the highest value is used.
  • Attribute bonuses from multiple sources do not stack. Instead the highest bonus is used.

With Bryan reaching new levels of power, he has not only begun to develop through his mind and skills, but body as well. As such, he's now starting to gain abilities that can change his physiology. Basically looks like that one girl in the Akatsuki from Naruto (Konan).

Exert your Mind and spend one minute. You must use up folding paper in order to activate this Effect.

You transform into a silhouette of paper sheets for the next day. You may end the effect early and return to your normal form at will. Your structure must remain relatively contiguous. Observers will view you as an unusual entity moving with a singular purpose.

While in this form, you can squeeze through any gap that is not water-tight.

Injuries from standard attacks are reduced to Severity 1, but Damage from AOE effects is increased by 1.

You cannot communicate while transformed. Your equipment does not transform with you beyond basic body coverings. Carrying capacity is unaffected.

You have access to your Powers while transformed.

You may use equipment while transformed.

You may turn this Effect on and off at will during its duration.

Possession of this Power grants the following Battle Scar: Made From Paper: You are vulnerable to fire while transformed. While in your Amorphous Transformation, the Severity of any Injury caused by fire is increased by 2 and Synthetic Joints: Your body has shifted to adapt to your new physiology. Whenever your left shoulder takes a major blow or is otherwise put under stress the GM may dislocate it. A dislocated limb cannot be used until you Exert your Mind and spend an Action to reset it.

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

  • The Severity-limiting effect from Squish does not stack with the Enhancement Tough from Mythic Brawn.
  • You may only switch this Effect on or off once per Round on your initiative as a Free Action.

Exert your Mind and spend an Action or Reaction. You must make a Trauma roll when you use this Effect. Its Difficulty cannot be reduced by any means. Roll Intellect + Technology at Difficulty 6.

If you succeed, you create a barrier around yourself, which absorbs the next Outcome + 6 Damage. Any Damage absorbed by the barrier is reflected back to the attacker, up to a maximum of the Barrier Strength Parameter’s bonus. Their Armor applies in full. The Damage reduction from the barrier is applied before Armor. You may only have 1 active barrier at a time.

You must maintain Concentration while using this Effect. The barrier will fall if you are interrupted, 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.

Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation or for its duration will almost certainly be disturbed to see Tiny bugs burrowing into skin and eating flesh..

  • If you use this Effect as a Reaction to dodge, you still need to make a roll to dodge. The Effect will occur regardless of the Outcome of this roll, but if you fail you will be hit by the relevant attack prior to the Effect occurring.
  • When narrating disturbing content, be cognizant of your group's tone and accommodating to those who would like to "fast forward" through the description.

Exert your Mind (unless you win a coin flip) and spend an Action to activate.

You are partially obscured from sight for the next 10 minutes. 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.

Entering Combat or being Injured will end the Effect. When the Effect ends, it is disabled for 1 hour.

This Gift does not affect your clothes or equipment.

  • 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.

Exert your Mind (unless the target has cancer) and spend 2 Actions. Roll a single D10 as a critical failure check. If you roll a 1, the Effect fails, and you give them, instead, un-reversed fast-acting cancer.. Choose a specific Injury on yourself that has not yet been treated with this Effect and roll Intellect + Technology at Difficulty 6.

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 the inator fire a ray of pure cancer, stimulating cancerous growths and bulbous flesh-melting which very quickly "rolls" and "melds" back into the body to return one to normalcy..

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

Exert your Mind (unless you win a coin flip) and spend an Action. Roll Dexterity + Survival at Difficulty 6.

If you succeed, you create a barrier around yourself, which absorbs the next Outcome + 4 Damage. The Damage reduction from the barrier is applied before Armor. You may only have 1 active barrier at a time.

The barrier will fall after two hours, 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.
