Legacy Power: Snakebite: Quick acting

Make them writhe

A 1 Gift Injure Power used by Viper, created by Iamangelofwar.


You strike your foes with your teeth and injure them with a quick acting poison, that while flushes quickly throughout their system, still does incredible damage to the bitten.


Spend an Action, Exert your Mind, choose a target within Arm's Reach, and roll Dexterity + Melee Difficulty 6. The target may defend by rolling to dodge or Defend (as for an attack with a thrown weapon) as a Reaction.

Damage dealt equals the difference between your attack roll's Outcome and the defensive roll's (if one was made), plus 3.The target's Armor is Fully Effective.


  • Cantrip (Activating this Effect has no Exertion cost, but its Gift Cost can never be increased above 2.)
  • Painful (The target suffers a -3 dice penalty for the next hour or until the Injury is healed. This dice penalty does not stack multiple times on the same target.)


  • Slow (Instead of dealing Damage all at once, the Injury caused by this Power starts at Severity 1 and worsens at the rate of one level per Round until it reaches the Severity it would have otherwise been.)


Range: 0 ( Arm's Reach ) Armor Effectiveness: 0 ( Fully Effective ) Damage: 2 ( 3 )
