Legacy Power: Blend with the Shadows

Now the darkness surrounds you.

A 3 Gift Obscure Power used by Jules, created by loroman1211.

Description

By invoking the Goddess of Darkness in a short ritual, Jules can draw the shadows to him, rendering him unseen & unheard. He must be wearing the Seal of Nephthys & must invoke her secret names, not known to any living mortal for this power to function. If he steps into the shadows he now can disapear much easier.

System

Exert your Mind and spend an Action to obscure yourself. You and any clothes or equipment you are wearing are obscured from Sight for 1 Hour. You cannot re-cast this Power until 1 Minute has elapsed. Entering Combat or being injured ends the effect early.

All mundane attempts to detect you via Sight fail, unless you chose vision. In that case, others must roll to detect you, and all attempts to detect you via mundane means are rolled at +2 Difficulty.

GMs should use their discretion when determining the exact effects of this Power. 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.


Enhancements

  • Mind Tricks (Instead of sight, you are concealed from any senses that normal humans do not possess. This does not include enhanced versions of common senses, such as a bloodhound's nose.)
  • Additional Sense (You are concealed from an additional sense)
    • Chosen Sense - Sound

  • Invisibility (You are completely concealed from the affected sense for the duration.)
  • Conditionally Costless (This Effect does not require Exertion in certain circumstances. The condition should be balanced such that it has an activation cost the majority of the time you are able to use it.)
    • Condition - Darkness/Shadows

  • Sharable Stealth (You may extend this power to other Animate targets. One additional target per application.)

Drawbacks

  • Mage (Activating this Effect requires at least two committed Actions and involves intricate use of the arms, hands and either the voice or an object. If interrupted during activation, the Effect fails.)
    • Activation Ritual - Mystic Passes while Invoking the secret names of Nephtys
  • Unique Focus (This Power takes the form of a specific, unique item, which can be borrowed, lost, or stolen. You must use / wear this item as intended to use this Power.)
    • Focus - Ring
  • Focus (Using this Effect requires a specific kind of item.)
    • Object - Ring
  • Long Cast (This Effect takes one minute to activate.)

Parameters

Cooldown: 2 ( 1 Minute ) Duration: 2 ( 1 Hour )
