Legacy Power: Fear my Cuteness!

That Possum is sooooooooooo cute!

A 1 Gift Emotion Control Power used by Janoverfeel, created by loroman1211.

Description

Over time my people have learned how to harness our power of the bipeds to make them bow to our will.

System

Spend an Action, Exert your Mind, and choose an emotion and an Animate target within 45 feet. Make a contested roll against the target, rolling Charisma + Alertness Difficulty 6 vs their Mind, Difficulty 6 as a Free Action. If you win, the target must do something they otherwise wouldn't have done, inspired by the chosen emotion. The action they take will be in keeping with their character and the way they tend to deal with strong emotions. The emotion shift lasts 1 Hour, and during that time, they are very unlikely to change their mind about their action.

Combat ends the effect, even if the target started it. If attempting to calm during combat, effect ends if target is attacked.

Example emotions (and example potential actions):
Anger (attacking, losing temper)
Pity (adopting a puppy, stopping an attack, killing you painlessly)
Happiness (stopping a despair-driven action)
Jealousy (stealing a gem, buying something)
Anxiety (run, attack brutally)
Sadness (find solitude, openly cry)


Drawbacks

  • Exhausting (After you finish activating this Effect, you cannot move quicker than a walk (max 15 feet per Round) for one minute and suffer a -1 dice penalty for an hour. Exhaustion’s penalty and duration stacks with multiple activations.)

Parameters

Duration: 1 ( 1 Hour ) Range: 1 ( 45 feet )
