Legacy Power: Pump Up


A 1 Gift Barrier Power used by Mansquito, created by shotgunwizard22.


Mansquito's body bulges, increasing in size as his exoskeleton goes from dark brown to a deep black, and deep red muscle visibly bulges beneath.


Exert your Mind, choose an Animate target within Arm's Reach, and roll Brawn + Athletics Difficulty 6 as a Committed Action. If you succeed, the next Outcome + 1 Damage to that target is absorbed by the barrier. The Damage reduction from the Barrier applies before Armor, and is treated like Armor by any effects such as Armor Penetration.

You must maintain concentration while using this Power. That means you can only move at a slow walk, and cannot split your Action between using the Power and other Actions. The Barrier will fall if you are interrupted or if it absorbs the full amount of damage. When a Barrier falls, you cannot use this power again for a minimum of 6 - Intellect rounds.


  • Tying Off (Any barriers you create last two hours, and you no longer need to maintain Concentration in order to maintain them.)
  • Battery-operated (Instead of Exerting Mind to activate this Power, it has its own 3-point Source pool. The Source regenerates at the rate of one point per day and cannot be raised with Experience.)
    • None - Heroic Vigour


  • Selfish (You may only target yourself.)


Range: 0 ( Arm's Reach ) Barrier Strength: 1 ( Outcome + 1 )
