Deliver Them ...to the serpent

1
This Artifact allows you to put a target to sleep.
Used by Lau Boros (real), Created by geniebottle.
On Signature Item Gereg.
(When activating this Effect, it is obvious you are interacting with the target. You must use this Artifact obviously when activating this Effect.)

Gereg crawls out from Lau's mouth, delivering a swift, poisoned bite.


Exert your Mind and spend an Action. Select a Living target within arm's reach. Roll a single D10 as a critical failure check. If you roll a 1, the Effect fails, and you the snake bites you, paralysing you for one minute and dealing a Severity-2 Injury. Roll Intellect + Occult at Difficulty 6. Affected targets may resist by rolling Mind at Difficulty 6.

If you succeed, your target becomes drowsy for the next 3 Rounds, during which time they suffer an additional -2 dice Penalty to all Actions. At the end of their drowsiness, they fall into a state of sleep paralysis for Outcome x 3 hours. During this time, they remain fully conscious and aware of their surroundings but are incapable of taking any actions.

Sleeping targets will not prematurely wake up on their own, and can only be awoken by taking Damage or nearing death from hunger, thirst, or suffocation. Drowsy targets always fall asleep, regardless of what happens while they are drowsy.

If an affected target was already sleeping when you used this Effect, they are put into a deep coma that lasts indefinitely, but they will be awoken from it if a bright light shines on them.

When activating this Effect you may attempt a knockout. If you do and your Contested Outcome exceeds 4, the target falls asleep immediately. Otherwise, they suffer the drowsy penalty for 2 Rounds.

  • For targets where "sleep" does not make any sense in terms of flavor, they will power down, freeze, etc, whatever state they can be in which is analogous to sleep.
  • 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.

This gun used to be Josephine's trusty side arm she picked up after leaving the force, but it seems to have shifted to try to fulfill a different purpose. It's trigger feels heavier than usual, causing more difficulty than one would expect in actually firing it. The trigger only gets heavier when it's aiming at a human target. It seems Redemption has molded itself to Josephine's desires, and has dedicated itself to helping her grow beyond her roots as a police officer. The gun cannot speak but it has a mind of its own, and requires a connection to another sapient creature in order to sustain itself.
