Legacy Power: Ne Fais Pas De Mal

first, do no harm

A 3 Gift Restrict Power used by Eugene “Doc” Roe, created by BOMBSHELL2150.


Doc sees the situation begin to degrade in slow motion.

Eyes widen. Hands reach for weapons. Mouths tighten against teeth in an ugly grimace. Shouts begin to echo around the room in garbled tongues.

While his body tenses, his soul feels tired. A man of peace cursed to exist in perpetual violence. His eyes linger on a man near him, assault rifle coming to bear against the people he came here with, when he feels power well in his chest between his lungs.

"Stop" Doc says.

The man, moving forward, suddenly stops: his feet rooted in place.


Spend an Action, Exert your Mind, and roll Charisma + Influence Difficulty 6 to Restrict a target within 20 feet. The target may contest this by rolling Mind, Difficulty 6 as a Free Action. Success fixes the target in place at their location, although they still can move their arms, use Powers, etc.

The target may attempt to break free by making an attack against their bonds at +1 difficulty. Breaking the binding requires an amount of damage equal to double the initial Outcome. Damage from multiple attacks is cumulative and stacks linearly. Other individuals may also damage the binding by attacking it at +1 difficulty.


  • Encase (Any physical actions taken by the target suffer a dice penalty equal to the contested Outcome from the Effect activation. These penalties may reduce dice pools to 0. Rolls to escape only suffer one half of the Penalty (rounded down).)
  • Ethereal Chains (The binding can no longer be attacked through mundane means. Instead, a restricted target may roll Mind at Difficulty 7 to attempt to escape the binding.)


  • Exhausting (After you finish activating this Effect, you cannot move quicker than a walk (max 15 feet per Round) for one minute and suffer a -1 dice penalty for an hour.)
  • Focus (Using this Effect requires a specific kind of item.)
    • Object - Holy Object
  • Fan Dance (Must retain Concentration to keep up the effect. While active, you are unable to do much besides move slowly, and if you are Injured or otherwise disrupted, the effect ends.)


Range: 1 ( 20 feet )
