Not Quite Angelic What kind of possessed child can’t levitate?

Requires Seasoned
The power to fly through the air at impressive speeds.
Used by Grace Cyanide, Created by lumiq.

Grace grins and tilts backwards like a trust fall which comes to a sudden, jarring stop a few inches above the ground. Grace goes horizontal and rises in the air with the ghostly white dress and wispy hair of her best friend trailing underneath them. As they get farther up, they’ll straighten up and take their place in the sky, hovering eerily with a brighter red in their eyes than normal.

Chamael was the inspiration- spending time with him had them jumping off a hotel bed, determined to fly just like he could. Cham was neither happy nor impressed.


Exert your Mind and spend a Free Action. This Effect remains active for two hours.

As long as you are conscious, you are immune to falling Damage. Additionally, you may glide as you fall, traveling 35 feet horizontally for every 10 feet you fall. While gliding, you fall at a minimum speed of 10 feet per Round.

You may ascend into the air and fly using your mind. Your Free Movement is Mind x5 feet/Round, including vertically. You cannot Dash. When sprinting, roll Mind and add your rating in Mind plus 1 to the outcome, multiply by 5 to find your sprint speed. Your encumbrance limit is 10 lbs per point of Mind.

You are subject to the following effects while gliding or flying:

  • Earthbound: You cannot fly or glide in an atmosphere thin enough to be unbreathable.
  • Weight-Limited: This Effect is suppressed any time you are over-encumbered.

  • Any penalties to dice or movement, including from Encumbrance, are applied as normal. If your movement is reduced to 0 due to encumbrance, you will begin to sink down to the ground.
  • You may activate this Effect while in midair, allowing you to slow and survive any free fall.

Use up this treacle tart (unless you succeed on 1d10, Difficulty 7) and spend 1 minute. This Effect cannot be used unless the target enjoys the food. Roll 7 dice at Difficulty 6, dice penalties do not apply.

If you succeed, the Injury is reduced in Severity by your Outcome. If you reduce its Severity to 0, the Injury is fully healed. Otherwise, it is partially healed and will heal the rest of the way at its natural rate.

This counts as a successful Makeshift Stabilization if the Injury was not already Stabilized; any Battle Scars caused by the Injury will remain.

  • This consumable is destroyed when used and cannot be used again.
  • Unstabilized wounds do not degenerate during treatment.

Exert your Mind and spend two Actions performing the following ritual: Pro, Mater, tuum laudo sacrificium.. You must maintain Concentration while activating this Effect, and it fails if you are interrupted.

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 Body physically morphs over itself.

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

  • 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.
