Lightning Strike

1
This Artifact allows you to cause a destructive blast of damage in an area.
Used by Ezra Wolengrad, Created by RaydirXD.
On Signature Item Sword of the Chosen.
(Both the source of the effect, as well as the danger zone it creates, are obvious to observers. You must use this Artifact obviously when activating this Effect.)

With a slash faster then the eye can see, our wielder comes back into frame and causes an anime-esc explosion behind them as they sheath their sword and absolutely disintegrate everything in their wake.


This Effect activates whenever Crane Strike. It does not require an Action or Exertion. Select a Location no further than 25 feet from you and in your line of sight. “Your target should be intuitively based on the triggering event. The area within 10 feet of the chosen Location immediately and obviously becomes imminently dangerous. On the following Rounds, you may choose to detonate the Blast as a Free Action on your initiative. When you do so-- or when one minute elapses-- roll Intellect + Melee at Difficulty 6.

If the Outcome is positive, your blast hits everything within 10 feet of the chosen Location with Damage equal to your Outcome + 4.

Any flammable Objects within the radius during the blast will catch fire, and any being who takes at least 4 Damage will catch fire. Starting the Round after they caught fire, flaming targets take 2 Damage per Round until the fire is extinguished.

  • When triggered, the Effect activation resolves immediately after the triggering Action. It is not Reaction speed.
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.
  • Your target must be within line of sight, or within range of another sense if more fitting for the Gift's flavor.

This, spear, engraved with scenes of the Wild Hunt, was initially the channel for the powers of a former damned spirit of the hunt, captured and enchained. That being had seen many leaders of the hunt come and go through its “lifetime”. With its taking from that being’s prison, the Spear lost most of its power. It seems to be reclaiming some of its history, however, in consuming the remains of Fae beings (the Fae are intimately intertwined with the history of the hunt, after all.).

One last note: This gift used a trophy from a Contract as the object for the artifact, and that spear trophy had the quirk of being unbreakable. It is completely up to individual GM’s whether they choose to uphold this quirk or ignore it.

Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate. This Artifact changes its appearance into an Object within the category of forms of identification. This lasts until you decide to end the Effect, which may be done as a Free Action.

The new appearance is illusory; it will hold up to scrutiny, but its composition is not altered and it gains no new functionality. Any attempt to use it for a function which it cannot perform (for instance, making bread look like a knife and then trying to stab someone) will cause the illusion to fail or allow a Perception check to see through the illusion, at the GM's discretion.
