Legacy Power: Compound

Tis but a Flesh Wound

A 1 Gift Injure Power used by Athena Rush, created by Riley.


Athena establishes a single wounded target and points. With a curl of the knuckle, she can force any physical injury to the body to suddenly worsen. A mere cut with a steak knife can become a giant gash. A bullet wound from a 9mm can become as big as an autocannon round. To GM discretion, it can even target battle scars and reopen them.


Spend an Action, Exert your Mind, choose a target within 300 feet, and roll Intellect + Medicine Difficulty 6. The target may defend by rolling Body, Difficulty 6 as a Free Action.

Damage dealt equals the difference between your attack roll's Outcome and the defensive roll's (if one was made), plus 2.The target's Armor is Fully Effective.


  • Cantrip (Activating this Effect has no Exertion cost, but its Gift Cost can never be increased above 2.)
  • Painful (The target suffers a -3 dice penalty for the next hour or until the Injury is healed. This dice penalty does not stack multiple times on the same target.)


  • Conditional (This Effect is only available when a certain condition is met. This condition must be severe enough that this Gift is unusable the majority of the time.)
    • Condition - This power only works against targets that are already wounded or have bad enough battle scars. GM Discretion.
  • Biohazard (This power only affects Living targets.)


Range: 2 ( 300 feet ) Armor Effectiveness: 0 ( Fully Effective ) Damage: 1 ( 2 )
