Legacy Power: Five Point Palm Technique

"The next time you say the word 'five'. . ."

A 1 Gift Injure Power created by shady.

Description

Perform the Five Point Technique via a series of quick pressure point hits on the target’s chest. As you do, channel your chi and speak a condition involving the number five. If the target cannot stop you from performing the technique, their heart will take a direct hit when they fulfill the chosen condition.

System

Spend an Action, Exert your Mind, and roll Dexterity + Brawl, Difficulty 6. The must be in melee range and may use a Reaction to dodge or parry as normal. If you have a positive Outcome, speak a condition involving the number 5 aloud to your target. The first time they fulfill the condition, they take the activation roll's Outcome plus 2 damage.

This is not a standard hand-to-hand attack and is not affected by Powers that enhance standard hand-to-hand attacks.


Enhancements

  • Curse (Instead of taking effect immediately, you may apply this Power as a curse. Specify a condition that, when fulfilled, causes the suspended effect to occur. The target is informed that they have been cursed and of the condition.)
  • Concealed (Using this Effect is not obvious. Choose a Tell that occurs only when you use the Effect; if-- and only if-- someone suspects that a Effect was used, they must roll Perception + Alertness, Difficulty 8 to pick up on your Tell.)

Parameters

Damage: 1 ( 2 ) Range: 0 ( Arm's Reach ) Armor Effectiveness: 0 ( Fully Effective )
