Horrible Regret "Why?"

4
The power to inflict mental trauma on a target.
Used by Terry Buckworth, Created by ShadyTradesman.
(When activating this Effect, it is obvious you are interacting with the target. )

Those who attack a being as pure as Terry find themselves regretting their decision, changing their mind mid-attack, and forever abhorring violence.


This Effect activates whenever Target injures Terry, dealing at least a severity-2 Injury or looks upon the injury up close. One per injury. It does not require an Action or Exertion. Select a Sapient target within 20 feet. Roll Charisma + Influence at Difficulty 6. The target resists by rolling Mind at Difficulty 8 with a -3 dice penalty. If they are incapacitated or unconscious, they fail automatically and their Outcome is 0.

If your contested Outcome is positive, the target takes Mind damage equal to your Outcome. If you deal at least 3 Mind damage, your target will gain Phobia of violence as a Trauma. This trauma may be removed by Effects or mundane therapy as per normal rules. The target is aware that you are attacking them but do not view it as an attack or view the resulting Trauma as malicious. If their Trauma is treated, they will be able to see the reality of the situation.
