Shapechange "The greatest trick the devil ever pulled..."

2
The power to change your appearance.
Used by Ky Matranaga, Created by Monday.
(Anyone who witnesses you activate this Effect is very likely to be disturbed to see blood drain from Ky's body and form into live, supernatural tendrils that change his form. You must actively and obviously be using a sharp object to draw blood.)

Ky Matranaga is too infamous to walk in public-- in order to survive, the devil inside must convince the world that he doesn't exist. By absorbing the life essence within him, Ky is able to change his form to fit his needs. Some blood must be spilled in the process, of course. But at this point, it's the least of his concerns.


Spend 2 Actions. You must actively and obviously use a sharp object to draw blood to activate this Effect.

You become disguised in a manner of your choosing. The disguise lasts for two hours, or you may end it early at will.

The new appearance may have a different sex, age, and race to your own, and you may alter height by up to a foot and your weight by 50%. Your disguise cannot directly mimic an existing person. You cannot alter your clothes. A disguise cannot affect your Attributes or other stats.

You may roll Charisma + Crafts to attempt to make your disguise Beautiful. If your Outcome is 6 or higher, non-Effect Charisma rolls where your good looks could help are rolled at -2 Difficulty. If you fail or botch, you are ugly instead, and non-Effect Charisma rolls are made at +2 Difficulty.

Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation will almost certainly be disturbed to see blood drain from Ky's body and form into live, supernatural tendrils that change his form.
