The Blood Beckons “I can see hear and even taste their blood even from here.”

4
The power to detect all nearby Humans, Undead, and Creatures and Animate beings with flowing blood.
Used by Lucian Evermore, Created by jwesley123.
(This Effect has no explicit visibility requirement.)

As Lucian, the vegan vampire, stands in the cool nighttime breeze, he takes a moment to embrace the darkness and open his heightened senses to the world around him. His keen vampire senses enable him to perceive details that elude ordinary humans.

With his supernatural olfactory senses, Lucian can detect the subtlest scents in the air. He inhales deeply, letting the myriad aromas flow through him. His nose twitches slightly as he distinguishes the scent of humans nearby, their individual nuances and the unique composition of their blood calling out to him.

Lucian's ethically driven nature means he won't harm humans, but he can still appreciate the complexity of their scents and the richness of their life forces. In this moment, he doesn't feast, but rather, he relishes the connection to the living world, a world he navigates with a sense of responsibility and compassion.


Exert your Mind and spend an Action. This Effect cannot be used unless must have drank blood in the last 12 hours.

You automatically detect all Humans, Undead, and Creatures and Animate beings with flowing blood 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 Humans, Undead, and Creatures or Animate beings with flowing blood targets are within 300 feet of you, and then one enters range, you automatically detect it, even if this Effect is not active.

Possession of this Power grants the following Trauma at all times: Can not enter a domestic house without someone inside inviting him in without succeeding on a self-control roll.

The tiny robot itself seems to be made up of small metal plates which seems to be keeping an large amount of wires and circuits behind it. the metal plates themselves seems to be some lightweight Aluminum. moving on to the back of the robots 'Head' there is a small projector right next to its camera that seems to project a hologram of whatever it's seen. that seems to play back anything it might of seen with it's little camera 'eye'.

The Robot itself seems to be able to run very fast due to its lightweight metal and very efficient servo motors which allow it to run up to 4.5 meters per second.

What really gives this tiny two-leg robot its 'uniqueness' is when Viktor infuses it when some of his mana from his 'Heart'

Exert your Mind and spend one minute.

Summon a single Two-legged robot, that has what looks like a camera ontop of it at your location. They will last until they are destroyed. They are controlled by the GM but will follow any commands you give. You may have at most 1 minion active at a time.

The humming usually reflects the general mood of those in it's initial range. An angry crowd will cause the user to feel compelled to hum a loud and dissonant tone, while more peaceful groups will inspire light and steadier tones. If there's no mood to read, or there is a sufficient mix of emotions, the caster will end up humming the last song that was stuck in their head. Mercifully, it is guaranteed to not get stuck again from this exercise.

Exert your Mind (unless you win a coin flip) and spend two Actions performing the following ritual: Take a knee, close your eyes, hum whatever come naturally, and trace a circle in the ground with the butt of your gun. You must actively and obviously use A.38 Special Revolver to activate this Effect. You must maintain Concentration while activating this Effect, and it fails if you are interrupted.

You automatically detect all fearful humans and murderers 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.

Use up this Cigarette and spend one minute to activate.

You and any clothes or equipment you are wearing 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 does not cause the Effect to end early. Anyone you attack will immediately notice you; anyone else may re-roll to notice you each time you take a Combat action, at -1 Difficulty per Combat action you have taken. When the Effect ends, it is disabled for 1 minute.

  • This consumable is destroyed when used and cannot be used again.

The Cross-Eye has further advanced, allowing the user to use it's latent nanotechnology to cloak the user in a special suit. This suit reflects light around the target, and softens all noise made by it. With this, a sniper could be right next to it's target or miles away, and they would never know

  • 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.

Stock Activated Gifts

Spend a Quick Action. You must actively and obviously use a burlap sack to activate this Effect.

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.

You may choose to equip any equipment you withdraw at no additional cost.

  • "Equip" refers to drawing a gun, putting on a piece of armor, etc.
  • 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 and spend an Action. You must actively and obviously use a watch or clock to activate this Effect.

Lasts 1 minute. Whenever you use your Movement, after all other calculations, the distance you may travel is doubled.

Outside of Combat, any non-Gift, non-movement Actions you attempt take drastically less time to complete, as long as your personal speed is a factor in the Action. Total time reduction is determined by the GM and capped at 90% (executing the Action takes no less than 1/10th the normal time).

While using this Effect, you may carry one other being without affecting your Encumbrance, so long as you maintain contact with them for the duration and they consent or are grappled.

  • The time reduction on non-Movement Actions applies only to the parts of actions when your personal speed is a factor,: pouring water or smoking a steak are not affected, but constructing a shelter or picking a lock would be. The GM will determine how much the total time is reduced based on how relevant personal speed is to the task.
  • Any Encumbrance penalty to your movement still applies, but you do not suffer from any sort of exhaustion.
  • Damage from a collision depends on your speed at the time, as well as what you hit. GM's discretion, but generally moving faster than a car on the freeway and hitting a dense, solid object like a wall or a tree should be lethal. Mundane armor will not apply, but any supernatural forms of protection will.

You transform into a werewolf for 3 minutes. You have access to all of your Powers while you are a 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 Brawn is increased by 1 and your Dexterity is increased by 1. You do not suffer any Stress while transformed.

Your alternate form is its own deadly weapon. Unarmed attacks made in your alternate form deal +3 Weapon Damage (instead of the typical -2).

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.

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.

While transformed, you automatically fail any Mind roll to resist an impulse and suffer -3 dice on all other Mind rolls.

Possession of this Power grants the following Trauma at all times: Whenever you are struck by the light of a full or gibbous moon, you must roll Self-Control to resist transforming. Triggers a max of once per night.

  • 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.

As long as you are conscious, you are immune to falling Damage. Additionally, you may glide as you fall, traveling 35 feet horizontally for every 10 feet you fall. While gliding, you fall at a minimum speed of 10 feet per Round.

You may ascend into the air and fly using your mind. Your Free Movement is Mind x5 feet/Round, including vertically. You cannot Dash. When sprinting, roll Mind and add your rating in Mind plus 1 to the outcome, multiply by 5 to find your sprint speed. Your encumbrance limit is 10 lbs per point of Mind.

You are subject to the following effects while gliding or flying:

  • Earthbound: You cannot fly or glide in an atmosphere thin enough to be unbreathable.
  • Weight-Limited: This Effect is suppressed any time you are over-encumbered.

  • 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.
