Legacy Power: Focus.

"Do yourself a favour, stay behind me."

A 3 Gift Barrier Power used by Autumn Whitlock, created by therustyy257.




Exert your Mind, choose an Animate target within Arm's Reach, and roll Dexterity + Athletics Difficulty 6 as a Committed Action. If you succeed, the next Outcome Damage to that target is absorbed by the barrier. The Damage reduction from the Barrier applies before Armor, and is treated like Armor by any effects such as Armor Penetration.

You must maintain concentration while using this Power. That means you can only move at a slow walk, and cannot split your Action between using the Power and other Actions. The Barrier will fall if you are interrupted or if it absorbs the full amount of damage. When a Barrier falls, you cannot use this power again for a minimum of 6 - Intellect rounds.


  • Bubble Shield (Your barrier’s strength is doubled, and it protects everyone within a 15 foot radius of your primary target. However, any attacks that originate from inside the radius will not be absorbed.)
  • Battery-operated (Instead of Exerting Mind to activate this Power, it has its own 3-point Source pool. The Source regenerates at the rate of one point per day and cannot be raised with Experience.)
  • Too Slow! (You may activate this Effect as a Reaction.)
  • Persistent Shielding (The barrier regenerates back to full strength at the end of each round of combat. It will still fall if the full amount of damage is dealt within a single round, or if you are interrupted.)


  • Focus (Using this Effect requires a specific kind of item.)
    • Object - needles
  • Selfish (You may only target yourself.)


Barrier Strength: 0 ( Outcome ) Range: 0 ( Arm's Reach )
