Mechanical Proliferation Decadence *Yawns* oops, sorry, didnt mean to yawn

1
The power to afflict a target with a debilitating illness, poison, or malady of some kind.
Used by Crane Albright, Created by GreenAppll.
(Activating this Effect is not obvious. The only sign you are using an Effect is spins bracelet around arm. )

Forcing the nanites within his body to proliferate wildly... it becomes akin to a tumor, but worse, targeting every part of the body. Then, with a yawn, A small bit of nanite leaves crane mouth, indiscernible to the eye, before it goes to his target. The nanite attempts to invade the body, though most body has a built in defense system which must fight with the nanite. If the nanites win, they move into the body, proliferating and causing the body to undergo decadence. Though, it seems like the proliferation exceeded even Crane expectations and starts to cause the same problem within his body too.
Thankfully it can be neutralized and calmed down via a controlled shock.


Exert your Mind and spend an Action. Select a Animate target within 25 feet. You must make a Trauma roll when you use this Effect. Its Difficulty cannot be reduced by any means. Roll Intellect + Technology at Difficulty 6. Your target may resist by rolling Body at Difficulty 7.

If you succeed, the target is afflicted with a Condition that causes any number of the following symptoms:

  • Disabled: The target suffers from an affliction that leaves them unable to act at full strength, such as physical pain, severe fever, intense fatigue, etc. They take a -2 penalty to all physical actions, which grows by -1 every day until it reaches your Outcome.
  • Psychotic Episodes: The target must make a Trauma roll each day at a -1 dice penalty, increasing each day until it reaches your Outcome.
  • Poisoned: The target gains a Severity-1 Injury which ignores Armor and doesn’t heal naturally. For every day that passes, they receive a new identical Injury. If this new Injury would kill them, they roll 1d10 at Difficulty 6. Success cures the condition; otherwise, they will die.
Symptoms begin to appear immediately, and will remain and continue to worsen until the affliction is cured. The affliction is not contagious and will not spread to others.

The affliction is not treatable by modern medicine. It may be diagnosed by rolling Intellect + Science at Difficulty 6, and can be cured by Shocking oneself with 100,000k+ Volts of electricity (about 2 damage worth of electricity).

  • Successfully diagnosing an affliction also includes information about the treatment method.
