Edna's Chair "I'll give it back, Jeebus!"

1
Requires Seasoned
The power to temporarily gain a burst of speed.
Used by Momma Ettu, Created by Redchigh.
( )

Momma Ettu calls out for Edna, a stern, mildly frustrated voice and an ethereal, transparent image of an older woman, about Ettu's age with long white hair but with sunken eyes and very clearly dead, appears in a ghostly wheelchair a few feet away. The exact wording varies, but tends to be Ettu demanding her chair, Edna refusing, then Ettu attempting to throw Edna out of her chair. If she succeeds then Ettu gets in the chair, and Edna plummets down through the ground and disappears.

Edna will take her chair back when the effect ends, with a banter like they're old friends or perhaps siblings.

Edna is a lovely woman that Ettu met during her hospital stay after her heart attack.
She ended up having to stay quite a while for rehab, and got to know a patient on her floor who turned out to be terminal.

Children at heart, they tended to prank each other with harmless tricks and gentle bullying.

Having kept her financial abundance secret, Ettu anonymously ensured her funeral was lavish, and covered the airfare for her relatives to attend. She was able to actually attend as well without being recognized, since it seemed to be in a parallel dimension of some sort.


Exert your Mind and spend at least two Actions performing the following ritual: Summons the ghost of someone she's met before, complete with their ghostly wheelchair. She pulls them out of the chair, and they fall through the floor, disappearing from sight and Momma Ettu takes the now vacant ghost wheelchair. to activate. You must maintain Concentration while activating this Effect, and it fails if you are interrupted. Roll a single d10, Difficulty 4. If you fail or botch, the Effect fails and you cannot activate it again for an hour.

You can run at four times your normal movement speed for the next hour.

While running, you may climb, jump, and roll without breaking stride, but you are at 1/2 speed while doing so.

After this Effect ends, you cannot move quicker than a walk for one minute and suffer a -1 dice penalty for an hour.

  • If this Effect fails due to the Unreliable check, you must still pay any associated activation costs.
  • Any Encumbrance penalty to your movement still applies, but you do not suffer from any sort of exhaustion.
  • Damage from a collision depends on your speed at the time, as well as what you hit. GM's discretion, but generally moving faster than a car on the freeway and hitting a dense, solid object like a wall or a tree should be lethal. Mundane armor will not apply, but any supernatural forms of protection will.

The Gallery, from the inside, manifests as... well, a gallery. It is a rectangular room- like a long hall museum exhibit with a tall domed ceiling that hangs some well crafted chandeliers purely for decoration. The walls are simple- a base sky amber with white diagonal lines. The floor is a classic tarrazzo flooring system with an off-white color that resembles polished stone.

Items that are stashed within The Gallery are stored as exhibits. Most of them appear as snapshots in time on paintings or murals, taken when they are first stashed. But for more sapient targets that can not easily be contained in pictures, they are put inside of a 15 foot by 15 foot by 15 foot indestructible display case.

And at the very far end of the room, Umbra is imprisoned within her own display case, brooding and generally being rude. Luci is always keeping tabs on her and preventing her from exercising her own will, but sometimes, that isn't easy.

Spend a Quick Action.

You may withdraw an item from your stash, or add an item that is within arm’s reach to your stash. You may only stash targets which are in your possession, grappled, or otherwise controlled by you.

You may store any targets in your stash, each no larger than something which could fit inside an SUV (4,000 liters), and you may store up to 7 things at a time.

You may choose to equip any equipment you withdraw at no additional cost.

Time is effectively frozen inside your stash. Anything Sapient inside can still move and may still experience their own localized, subjective passage of time.

Animate targets may Resist being stashed. You must Exert your Mind to stash Sapient targets.

Possession of this Power grants the following Trauma at all times: Whenever Luci has below a -2 stress penalty, she loses a bit of fortitude and Umbra will be able to speak her mind freely from Luci's shadow. She will tend to make threats, taunt enemies, reveal sensitive information openly, and generally be an annoyance to those around her for the purpose of distracting them. Can interrupt certain power casts of those around.

  • "Equip" refers to drawing a gun, putting on a piece of armor, etc.
  • Containers which hold multiple things may count as a single item so long as the things within are generally packaged together. For instance, you may stash a clip full of bullets, a medical kit full of medical supplies, or a box of crackers, but you cannot stash a backpack full of miscellaneous equipment.
  • You may only attempt to store Objects which are free-standing and disconnected from other things. The use of this Effect will not allow you to sever any connections holding an Object in place.
  • The Maximum Object Size parameter is intended to roughly capture the weight / size restriction of items and isn’t intended to restrict shape. GM discretion is advised. A human being is level 4 in the Maximum Object Size parameter.

Exert your Mind and spend an Action.

You can interact with things that are within 75 feet without needing to physically touch them or be near them. Lasts for two hours. Any rolls made for Actions taken in this way use a Mental Strength of 2 in place of your Brawn rating, a Mental Agility of 2 in place of your Dexterity, and otherwise use your own Attributes and Abilities.

Telekinetic actions have the following restrictions and behaviors:

  • Line of Sight: You may use this Effect on targets which are out of sight, provided you have an understanding of their location.
  • Unarmed Combat: You cannot deal damage through unarmed combat or thrown objects with this Effect, though you may still grapple with targets.
  • Weapons: You cannot wield weapons effectively in combat.
  • Fine Tools: You are otherwise limited to actions that a normal human could do with their bare hands.
  • Maintaining Focus: You must maintain Concentration while taking Actions in this way. If you are Injured or interrupted, you must roll Mind at Difficulty 9 to maintain Concentration. If you fail, you cannot engage in telekinetic actions for the next 6 - Intellect rounds.
  • Levitation: If you are strong enough to lift yourself, you may levitate up to within 75 feet away from the ground. Movement is limited to 5 feet per Round.
  • Multiple Items: You can only interact with one thing or take one Action at a time.

  • Using this Effect on targets which you cannot see will not give you any descriptive information about their location or surroundings, though you will have a sense of whether or not you are “touching” them, or if they bump into something.
  • Any telekinetic actions which interact with Animate targets may require contested rolls at GMs discretion.

With his Mind/machine interface in place, Doctor Lazcowicz is now experimenting with new functions. In this case, after extruding a small number of nanites into an existing computer, smartphone, or smartwatch he can use them to reconstruct the internals of the device. Enhancing onboard cameras into medical scanners and using the raw materials of the circuit boards within to construct a nanite factory, the device now acts as a controller and dispenser for specialized nanite piles that will reconstruct scarred and damaged body parts at a cellular level to make them good as new! with their micronized technology, they can even preserve the original function of the device by recreating its circuitry on a nanotic scale. Mundane functions still require normal power though, and trying to power on the device when the mundane battery is dead will allow only use of the "Reconstruction" app.

Attempting to dispense nanites while charging the normal battery is... ill advised.

Expend a point of Battery and spend an hour. Select a Battle Scar on yourself to treat.

The treated Battle Scar heals as you finish activating this Effect.
