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

A 1 Gift Obscure Self Power used by Benny Scappetti, created by BobDylan530.

Description

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.

System Active

Exert your Mind and spend an Action to obscure yourself. You and any clothes or equipment you are wearing are obscured from Sight for 1 Minute. You cannot re-cast this Power until 1 Hour has elapsed. Entering Combat or being injured ends the effect early.

All mundane attempts to detect you via Sight fail, unless you chose vision. In that case, others must roll to detect you, and all attempts to detect you via mundane means are rolled at +2 Difficulty.

GMs should use their discretion when determining the exact effects of this Power. 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.
