Exert your Mind and spend an Action.

You transform into Whisp of Fire for the next hour. You may end the effect early and return to your normal form at will. Your structure must remain relatively contiguous. Observers will view you as an unusual entity moving with a singular purpose.

While in this form, you can squeeze through any gap that is not air-tight, though this may take more than one Action at GMs discretion.

Damage from standard attacks is halved, but Damage from AOE effects is increased by 1. You may suffer Damage from wind and powerful gusts at GM’s discretion.

You cannot communicate, use equipment, or use Gifts while transformed. Your equipment does not transform with you beyond basic body coverings. Carrying capacity is unaffected.

While transformed, you can make an unarmed attack using Body as your attack roll. The target may contest by dodging or Defending. This attack deals +2 damage.

This Effect ends if you take an Injury or are stunned or incapacitated.

Expend a point of Battery and spend an Action. Select a Location within 60 feet of you. Choose a 3-D shape that will define the borders of your Effect.

If a new opening appears while the Effect is still active, it will finish spreading in that direction.

Your zone blends with the environment, seeming to arise naturally from local effects. Observers who roll Perception + Alertness and achieve an Outcome 4 or higher notice that it is unnatural.

Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation will almost certainly be disturbed to see It summons a inhuman creature behind me.

  • If you select a location at the edge of your range, you will be just outside the zone once the Effect is activated
