Minerva lets out a breath and places a hand gently on her target. Clearing her thoughts, she slips into their dreams, and then deeper, walking into the vault that is their mind, and into the archives of memory. It's hard to make new entries, really hard. Much easier to just remove them. But things are not so easily removed, either. Just misfiled. She knows how to both misfile and correct such misfilings.
Exert your Mind and spend 15 minutes. Select a Sapient target within arm's reach. This Effect cannot be used unless The target is sleeping. Make a Trauma roll when you activate this Effect. Roll Charisma + Influence at Difficulty 6. The target may resist by rolling Mind at Difficulty 8.
If the contested Outcome is positive, the most recent 1 minute from your target’s memory is either replaced with new memories or forgotten entirely. This is recorded as a Condition. The level of detail and completeness of the alteration depends on your Outcome. If you fail, the target realizes that you are attempting to alter their memories.
The period is chosen either by time (i.e. “last Friday night”) or by reference to a specific event (i.e. “when the murder occurred”). You may also choose to only alter a single specific detail rather than an entire period, such as a password, phone number, directions, or you may remove all knowledge of one specific thing, regardless of time period, such as a loved one, a location, a prized possession, etc.
You may use this Power to detect and repair any altered memories in the Target's mind.
Affected targets will invent new memories to justify the inconsistencies. For instance, if their memory was altered to include a new friend they don’t have, they may invent further memories of meeting that friend, spending time with them, etc.
Ellis chants the psalms and thrusts Esperachius straight up into the air. The area around him becomes consecrated by the Lord and is bathed in a warm, golden light, expelling all abominations against the Lord and preventing them from attacking anyone remaining.
Exert your Mind and spend an Action or Reaction to activate. Roll Charisma + Melee at Difficulty 6.
Create a repulsion field which extends out 45 feet from you in every direction, and lasts for the next minute. Any demonic or undead entities within the field cannot move any closer towards you. If they were within 45 feet from you when you activated the effect, they are immediately pushed back to the edge of the repulsion field.
You must maintain Concentration during this Effect.
You may spend an Action or Reaction and Roll Charisma + Melee at Difficulty 6. to use your repulsion field to Defend against all attacks made towards you during that round of Combat. This does not break your Concentration.
You must remain standing in the same location while this Effect is active. Moving to a new location will interrupt your Concentration and end the Effect.
Leon clenches the eight-pointed star within his fist and blood drips down from his grip as it digs into his palm, lightly glowing pink for a moment, then brown, blue, green, red, black, and finally, white. The offering complete Leon's spiritform gains the power to assume a presence on the material and as it surges forward it delves into the left eye of the target, forcing itself into the beings tear ducts as Leon forcibly conquers the soul of the target, subjugating it as he takes over the person in a perverse corruption of typical fox-possession.
Take a Severity-1 Injury and spend an Action. Select a Animate target within arm's reach. You must actively and obviously use The Eight Pointed Star Insignia of the Star of Belligerence to activate this Effect. You must make a Trauma roll when you use this Effect.

If you succeed, you possess your target for a number of days equal to the Contested Outcome. The target has no control over their body or actions, and they are functionally unconscious through the entire possession, retaining no memory other than any Traumas they might obtain.
You do not leave your original body behind when you possess a target. When a possession ends, your original body will reappear at the host body’s same location. You may spend an Action to end the possession early.
Stats: During the possession, you use the host body’s Body rating, but your own Mind rating. Any rolls you make use the host body’s Brawn, Dexterity, and Perception but your own Charisma and Intellect. You may use either your own or the host’s Ability ratings, whichever is higher. You gain the effects of any physical Assets and Liabilities they have. You cannot read the target’s mind or memories.
Gifts: You have access to and can use any of your own Powers which are not intrinsic to your biology or physical body. You cannot access any Powers or other supernatural effects which the target has, unless they are intrinsic to the target’s biology or physical body.
Death: If the host body is killed or destroyed while you are still possessing it, you will die along with it.
Eviction: If you attempt to force your host to take actions which would violate one of their Limits or their instinct for self-preservation, they may resist by rolling Mind. If their Outcome is higher than or equal to the contested Outcome, the possession ends and you are evicted from their body. If they fail, you remain in control.
Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation will almost certainly be disturbed to see Leon's spirit form rip it's way out of the skin suit it wears and force itself into the left eye or approximate equivalent of the target.
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.
A black wormhole sucks the user and any other people into another dimension where everything is a fractured and distorted version of the world.

You are transported directly to the chosen Location. You must wait an hour before activating this effect again.
When you Travel, you leave Wormhole as a distinct trail between your starting and end points.
By consuming the flesh of humans, Ghouls gain dream-like insights into that person's life. Typically this is the moments just before death, though it is not uncommon to see the images of the most recent places visited by the deceased. If he is able to completely consume the heart of the target, this information comes almost effortlessly, a throwback to the Rites of Anubis & the Ghoul Cults of Egypt.
Name/Identity: Who they were, including Aliases
Codes & Passwords: Including arcane phrases, disarming traps (though not the nature of those traps) as well as the order in which they are used.
Moment of Death: Replays 1 turn before death per success, as they witnessed it.
Treasure Map: An image of the items they treasure the most, & where they keep them.

Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation will almost certainly be disturbed to see Cannabalism.
Ed holds an eyeball, whispers an incantation into it, places it into position, the iris of the eyeball turns a slightly glowing green and it is locked into place. From here Ed is able to see and hear from this eyeball as if they were his own senses. When he is using this power to see through these, his eyes glow green as they do with many of his different powers.
Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate. Select a Location within 10 feet. You must use up eyeballs in order to activate this Effect. Make a Trauma roll when you activate this Effect.
You place a ward, which is fixed to its initial location. You can perceive with all your senses or activate investigative Effects through the ward as though you were standing at its location. You may have at most 3 wards running at once.
The ward requires Concentration to monitor, though it will remain active until you deactivate it. It can be detected with a roll and destroyed through mundane means.
Whenever something crosses into the observational range of the Ward, you and those you've allowed to tune in are alerted by a dinging sound similar to an egg timer.
Through years of practice, the mobster is able to shatter someone's kneecap without much effort.
Spend an Action. Select a Living target within arm's reach. You must actively and obviously use a melee weapon to activate this Effect. Roll Brawn + Melee at Difficulty 6. The target may roll Body, -2 dice at Difficulty 7, as a Free Action to resist.
If you succeed, the target receives a new Battle Scar of your choosing, limited by the contested Outcome:
All alterations you make must damage the target's knees.
This Gift's Cost is capped at 2 and cannot be increased further.
Perform the Five Point Technique via a series of quick pressure point hits on the target’s chest. As you do, channel your chi and speak a condition involving the number five. If the target cannot stop you from performing the technique, their heart will take a direct hit when they fulfill the chosen condition.
Exert your Mind and spend an Action. Select a Living target within arm's reach. Roll Dexterity + Brawl Difficulty 6. The target may contest by rolling Body, Difficulty 6.

Instead of dealing Damage all at once, the Injury caused by this Power starts at Severity 1 and worsens at the rate of one level per Round until it reaches the Severity it would have otherwise been.
The Vampire is able to turn one of their victims into a lesser vampire, a pale shadow of a full creature of the night but useful nonetheless. Having drained and killed their target, the Vampire performs a brief ritualistic bloodletting, wherein they spill their own blood into the target's mouth, forcing them to drink, and bonding them together as child and sire.
Shortly afterwards, the fledgling vampire will rise from death, hungry for blood and eager to serve.
Take a Severity-1 Injury and spend one minute. Select a Dead target within arm's reach that has died within the last hour. This Effect cannot be used unless you drained the target's blood while they were still alive.
Your target rises as an Animate being. The raised creature is totally mindless, with no memory of its past life or hint of its old personality. They cannot communicate. They will follow any command you speak.
The creature lasts until it dies again. It is revived at full health. Any Injuries it had in life are not accounted for when determining its penalties or progression towards re-death, though they may affect its ability to perform certain actions at GM's discretion. The raised creature must consume flesh every day or it will die again.
Raised creatures have their Abilities set to the same that they were in life. Their Charisma and Intellect are set to 1, but their Dexterity, Brawn and Perception are the same as they had in life. A raised creature cannot use any Effects.
Your revived targets deal 2 Weapon Damage with their unarmed attacks.
The Future Soldier learned to create foam grenades in their own time period, and they still can, kinda. They look like glowing orange capsules with a rugged rubberized grip. When thrown, they burst into a splash of expanding neon orange foam. The foam hardens in seconds, severely hampering the movement of anyone unlucky enough to have been splashed. Those affected may use their hands or weapons to hack away at the foam and free themselves.
Occasionally, the fuses on these bootleg grenades fails, and they go off immediately.
Spend an Action and use up this small metallic grenade with pin (unless you succeed on 1d10, Difficulty 7). Make a thrown attack at a Location within normal attack range. Roll a single D10 as a critical failure check. If you roll a 1, the Effect fails, and you are hit as it activates immediately at your present location. The target may roll to dodge or defend, as normal for thrown attacks. The attack does not deal Damage, but the Effect does.
If you succeed, all affected targets will be restricted at their location by a physical, tangible binding. They can still move their arms and use Effects, but are reduced to ¼ of their movement speed.
The binding around a target must be destroyed in order for them to break free. Breaking the binding requires a total amount of Damage equal to twice the original Contested Outcome. Damage from multiple attacks is cumulative and stacks linearly.
The Skeleton Key slips easily into any keyhole and turns without a fuss.
Spend an Action.
You may lock, unlock, and/or open any number of doors, locks, or locked targets within arm's reach of you. Cannot be used on Alien technology.
If you successfully operate a lock, you may choose to destroy it, rendering it inoperable.
