Ecto Vision "my eyes have never seen such beauty..."

2
The power to detect all nearby undead beings.
Used by Isaac McKnight, Created by Omnitox.
(This Effect has no explicit visibility requirement.)

Isaac is sometimes able to perceive undead beings such as ghosts and spirits. When doing so, he covers his eyes with his hands for a moment, gripping his face, and faint glowing eyes manifest on the back of his hands as he whispers to himself. These eyes are large and unearthly, looking in all directions yet none at all.

An inexperienced Isaac performed a ritual early into his study, one of his firsts. Looking back, it was stupid of him to attempt a ritual like this, it could have easily killed him, and condemned his soul for eternity. This ritual involved rubbing the ashes from cremated eyeballs on his own, under a supermoon. These eyes came from a lesser god known as Macula the Fearful, a lesser god that was killed by another, Issac was merely the vulture feasting on his corpse.


Exert your Mind and spend an Action. You must make a Trauma roll when you use this Effect. Its Difficulty cannot be reduced by any means.

You automatically detect all undead beings within 300 feet of you for the next hour. This includes any who come within range during the duration. You have a sense of how many valid targets are nearby, as well as their distance and direction.

If no undead beings targets are within 300 feet of you, and then one enters range, you automatically detect it, even if this Effect is not active.

Even if there are no undead beings within 300 feet of you, you become aware of the direction the closest one is in, as well as a rough sense of its distance from you.

Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation or for its duration will almost certainly be disturbed to see Otherworldly eyes manifest above your face, the sockets being filled with hundreds of quivering eyes.

  • When narrating disturbing content, be cognizant of your group's tone and accommodating to those who would like to "fast forward" through the description.

Community Power Gifts

You gain the following benefits at all times.

Any Injury you receive heals quickly, reducing its Severity by one level every day. Any Injuries you receive while this Effect is active automatically count as a successful Proper Stabilization and do not deteriorate further. Any Battle Scars caused by such an Injury will heal with the Injury.

You may Exert your Mind and spend an Action to reduce the Severity of one of your Injuries by 1. Does not affect Injuries suffered as an activation cost for Effects.

Once an Injury has been reduced in Severity by two levels, it no longer benefits from this effect and instead heals as normal.

You gain the following benefits at all times.

Your senses are enhanced in the following way.

  • Smell: Your nose is highly sensitive and can differentiate between scents the way a dog can, as well as recognize things you have smelled before.
  • Touch: You can pick up on subtle differences between textures with ease, and can immediately find what you are looking for when rummaging (digging through trash, finding a needle in a haystack, etc), assuming it is actually present.

Any heightened senses require you to maintain Concentration to use, and do not apply to any passive Perception checks.

Exert your Mind and spend an Action. Select a target within arm's reach. Choose an illusion to generate, which can be no larger than an SUV.

The chosen illusion is generated at your target, and it will remain in place until it is dispelled or you choose to end it. It can be perceived by people through all of their senses. The illusion cannot be used as an attack. You may create a replica of a specific being or Object, though it is still limited by what you do or do not know about the subject.

Anyone who struggles against the illusion hard enough to break a window or who would be damaged by the illusion realizes it is an illusion, and the entire effect will be ended for all targets.

The illusion is not fixed to the initial target, and may move about at a maximum speed 30 feet per Round. It may have moving parts and engage in simple, predetermined movements but cannot perform anything complex or interactive unless you maintain Concentration and “puppeteer” it.

You may use Traumatize as though you were standing within your illusion. Doing so dispels the Illusion. Anyone who has already seen through the illusion is unaffected by any Powers channeled through it.

Possession of this Power grants the following Trauma at all times: Kitsune Heart: Whenever a limit roll is presented you must drop your disguise and roll self control or act in a hostile manner towards the source of the limit roll. You may exert to end the effect so long as one action has been taken..

  • while you can use an illusion to obscure something smaller, you cannot make anything directly invisible (you can’t make a tank look like a regular baseball, but you can hide it in an illusion of a giant baseball).
  • You may only puppeteer a single illusion at once.
  • 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.

You gain the following benefits at all times.

You no longer require any sleep or air in order to survive.

Instead of food and water, you must consume mammal meat/fluids daily for sustenance. For every day you fail to consume it, you lose a point of Brawn. If your Brawn falls to 0 in this way, you die. Your Brawn is fully restored to normal as soon as you fulfill your dietary needs.

You gain the following benefits at all times.

You have 8 Armor, which reduces incoming damage from all sources of physical attack except Non-kinetic. Armor from multiple sources does not stack. This Armor cannot be circumvented with Called Shots.

Armor penetration does not affect your Armor, and it cannot be shredded or destroyed.

Any Injury received from Damage that was reduced by this Armor is considered makeshift stabilized and will not degrade further. Any Battle Scar received from such an Injury is reduced by 1 level to a minimum of a Minor Battle Scar.
