Stalk Through The Night "He found himself in utter darkness: the sound, however, guided him. He was apparently unperceived; for, though he called, still the sounds continued, and no notice was taken of him."― John William Polidori, The Vampyre; a Tale

You possess an ability to partially hide from sight.
Used by Benny Scappetti, Created by BobDylan530.

The Vampyre's natural affinity for the shadows allows him to effortlessly stalk through the darkness. He is incredibly difficult to see or hear, until he leaps out from the shadows, knife drawn and teeth bared.


You gain the following benefits as long as you are in shadows or darkness.

You and any clothes or equipment you are wearing are partially obscured from sight. All attempts to detect you using sight are rolled at a -3 dice penalty.

Entering Combat or being Injured will end the Effect. When the Effect ends, it is disabled for 1 hour.

  • GMs should use their discretion when determining the exact impacts of this Effect, particularly in conjunction with environmental factors. Standing still against a complex background may render you impossible to detect, and footprints in snow may make it easy. A chance to detect you is not guaranteed.

His knuckles have become hardened, and his biceps and triceps have doubled in size.
A fan of comic books, Mark knew he had to learn to fight. He tends to fight like classical superheroes, just because he hasn't been taught any different- leaning hard on brutal strength and speed rather than skill or finesse.

Mark's unique genetics kicked in at a young age, though it was nearly his late teenage years before he actually started practicing combat and fighting, visiting a community boxing club.

First thing he learned was how to not break them.
Second was how to not destroy the gloves.

The user punches straight into the target object. This in turn causes a ripple effect throughout as it creates cracks throughout the object before it is ultimately shattered or damaged to a great extent.

  • The penalty from an object being damaged will stack with itself if a target is hit multiple times, but the object is destroyed when it reaches a total penalty of -4.
