The power to create an environmental hazard.

(During activation, it is obvious the environmental effect is issuing forth from you. )

Standing at a safe distance, with a clear line of sight to the sky and the location he’s targeting, Ethan Storm prepares to unleash his unique ability. His eyes fix on a point in the open field, 60 feet away. The air around him grows tense, charged with anticipation.

Ethan extends his arms, not towards the tornado, but outward, as if to embrace the vast expanse of the sky. His concentration is laser-focused, and the atmosphere responds to his silent call. Above the chosen location, the clouds begin to swirl menacingly, converging into a spiraling mass.

With a subtle movement of his hand and a deep exertion of his mind, Ethan commands the elements. A hemispherical dome of a tornado bursts into existence, its radius encompassing the 60-foot area he envisioned. The tornado is a whirlwind of debris and force, yet Ethan stands outside its reach, a master orchestrating a symphony of nature’s fury.

You create a hemispherical dome of Tornado In the Center With Whipping Debris originating at the chosen Location, with a radius of 20 feet, and lasting for 5 minutes. The area inside your zone is affected in the following ways:

  • Danger Zone: The zone contains Whipping Debris. At the end of each Round, everyone in the zone must roll Body at Difficulty 8. Anyone who fails or botches receives a Severity-1 Injury.
  • Slippery: All movement distances are halved within the zone. Anyone who wishes to move further than their Free Movement within a Round must roll Dexterity + Athletics. If they fail, their movement is limited to their Free Movement and they fall down.
The zone expands immediately to its full size from the chosen Location, but will be stopped from spreading in a particular direction by any barriers or cover, and can only fit through openings large enough to fit a grown adult. 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.

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