Zombies! I've never loved the slow, shambley ones.

1
The power to summon a minion which can fight and act on your behalf.
Created by shady.
(When activating this Effect, it is obvious that you are creating a minion in some way. You must actively and obviously be using up a corpse.)

The Necromancer stands over a corpse and makes a series of grandiose lifting gestures. The corpse rises from the ground as though suspended by invisible strings, barks a pained groan, and lands on its feet, now a full-fledged member of the living dead.


Take a Severity-1 Injury and spend an Action to activate. You must use up a corpse in order to activate this Effect.

Summon a single zombie at your location. They will last until they are destroyed. They are controlled by the GM but will follow any commands you give. You may have at most 1 minion active at a time.

Minions have 6 Body and can make melee range attacks with 5 dice to attack and +1 Damage. Your minions can move 20 feet per Round as Free Movement, and double that when performing an all-out Sprint. They cannot dodge or Defend. They have dog-level intelligence, and cannot communicate back to you. Any Perception checks they make are rolled with 3 dice.


Community Activated Gifts

That to destroy earth's music is to create confusion;
that to wreck her appearance is to blind us to beauty;
We indulge her children within us.

Spend a minute to activate.

You become disguised in a manner of your choosing. The disguise lasts for two hours, or you may end it early at will.

The new appearance may have a different sex, age, and race to your own, and you may alter height by up to a foot and your weight by 50%. Your disguise cannot directly mimic an existing person. You may change the appearance of your outfit. A disguise cannot affect your Attributes or other stats.

Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation will almost certainly be disturbed to see black veins pulse, and skin slacken and fold away.

This Gift's Cost is capped at 2 and cannot be increased further.

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

  • While you may alter your outfit's appearance, this does not grant or store equipment.
  • When narrating disturbing content, be cognizant of your group's tone and accommodating to those who would like to "fast forward" through the description.

Exert your Mind and spend a minute. Select a Battle Scar on yourself to treat.

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

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.

  • Exhaustion penalties and duration stack. If you activate this Effect or another Effect with Exhaustion, your penalty will worsen, and the duration is increased by one hour.

A single path lies Infront of you, no left or right turns, the only choice is forward. And there in front and above you, just high enough to jump up and punch, is a box labeled with a glowing question mark. You hit it, and box ceases to glow, but out from the top, a mushroom falls. As you approach it, remembering vaguely some sort of cautionary song or rhyme or mnemonic device the boyscouts used to teach, it looks almost inviting. Then suddenly it rotates, revealing grotesque eyes, a slobbering mouth, and upsetting knobby feet.

Your eyes pop open, exacaping you from this dream.

You jolt up in a cold sweat, and there on the floor at the foot of your bed is a perfect-looking mushroom gliding peacefully and bouncing softly from wall to wall. "Super Mushroom," you whisper instinctively to yourself, and you feel the power inside of it. "Ya-hooo"

Use up this Amanita muscaria mushroom and spend a Quick Action.

You transform into The same but larger and taller for 3 minutes. You have access to all of your Powers while you are The same but larger and taller, and you can use your equipment. Your Battle Scars, Injuries, and physical Liabilities are carried over between forms. Reverting from your Alternate Form cannot cause your existing Injuries to kill you. Instead, you remain Incapacitated.

While transformed, your Brawn is increased by 1.

Your body is adapted to Mario movement (jumping, running, etc). You receive +3 dice on non-attack rolls related to Mario movement (jumping, running, etc).

If you become Incapacitated or suffer an Injury Severity 4 or greater, you revert from your Alternate form.

  • This consumable is destroyed when used and cannot be used again.
  • Attribute bonuses from multiple sources do not stack. Instead the highest bonus is used.

Exert your Mind and spend a half hour. You must actively and obviously use Tattoo Gun to activate this Effect.

You become disguised in a manner of your choosing. The disguise lasts until you either activate a new disguise, or choose to end the effect.

The new appearance may have a different sex, age, and race to your own, and you may alter height by up to a foot and your weight by 50%. Your disguise may directly mimic the appearance of a specific individual. You cannot alter your clothes. You may add inhuman features to your disguise. Your disguise can alter your smell, DNA, and other aspects that are not perceivable via human senses. This does not conceal you against investigative Effects. A disguise cannot affect your Attributes or other stats.

You may Exert your Mind and spend a half hour to apply a disguise to a target. The target can Resist your attempt. The disguise lasts until you choose to end the Effect and counts as a Battle Scar. All the same restrictions on the disguise’s appearance apply.

Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation will almost certainly be disturbed to see The Skin is dragged and molded by the needle and bones will crack and bend as the needles dig in..

  • A performance check is generally required to pass with people who know the individual you're mimicking.
  • While you can add inhuman features, they are aesthetic only. Think star trek alien, monstergirl, demon, etc. Does not grant things such as a prehensile tail, an extra damaging brawl attack, improved senses, etc.
  • When narrating disturbing content, be cognizant of your group's tone and accommodating to those who would like to "fast forward" through the description.

Doctor John Klyzac had lost his arm when he'd gotten into a near fatal car accident. This had taken him out of his job, leaving him without help and guide. But when Primus had arrived, they offered him a deal
Give us medical service, go on contracts, and you get your arm and your job back.

Exert your Mind and spend an Action.

You gain an additional limb that functions as a standard human arm and hand. Lasts two hours.

Each additional limb you posses can take one Quick Action per Round without incurring a -2 dice penalty to your main Action. Any Battle Scars that affect or remove your additional limb will heal in a single week.

Your extra appendage can be used to attack in exactly the same manner as a Industrial Chainsaw (Greatsword).

You may turn this Effect on and off at will during its duration.

Your body provides you with the functionality of Surgeon's Tools. If used to attack, these "tools" use the same stats as a small knife.

Your Extra Appendage counts as an object and can be hacked or targeted by any Powers that affect objects or machines. Injuries to your Extra Appendage cannot be healed by Powers that affect living things but may be repaired during Downtime.

Possession of this Power grants the following Trauma at all times: Hunger for Blood - When activating the switch on this power, make a Self Control roll. You must use it in some way shape or form to shed blood within the result's number of rounds (such as attacking someone or performing surgery). If you do not do this, you must make a trauma roll.

  • You may only switch this Effect on or off once per Round on your initiative as a Free Action.

Stock Activated Gifts

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 units of water in your stash, each no larger than something which could fit inside a briefcase (15 liters), and you may store up to 3 things at a time.

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

  • "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.

Whenever you use your Movement, after all other calculations, the distance you may travel is doubled.

  • 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.

This Effect activates whenever you are submerged in salt water. It does not require an Action or Exertion.

You transform into small for two hours or until you choose to end the Effect. See the Extended System text for stats.

While transformed, you cannot use any equipment (including Artifacts and Consumables), and you cannot use your Active, Direct, or Trap Powers. However, you can use your Passive Powers. Any equipment you are wearing transforms with you.

Injuries and Wound Level are carried over between forms. However, transforming can never kill you; you merely remain Incapacitated until your Injuries are sufficiently healed.
