Time Bubble

Everybody in the bubble!

A 1 Gift Barrier Power used by Aki Shizuko, created by coco.


Shizuko makes a bubble with an invisible wall that slows time within the wall. Any projectiles that enter are greatly slowed down.

System Active

Exert your Mind, choose an Animate target within Arm's Reach, and roll Intellect + Alertness Difficulty 6. If you succeed, the next Outcome + 2 Damage to that target is absorbed by the barrier. The Damage reduction from the Barrier applies before Armor, and is treated like Armor by any effects such as Armor Penetration.

You must maintain concentration while using this Power. That means you can only move at a slow walk, and cannot split your Action between using the Power and other Actions. The Barrier will fall if you are interrupted or if it absorbs the full amount of damage. When a Barrier falls, you cannot use this power again for a minimum of 6 - Wits rounds.


  • Bubble Shield (Your barrier’s strength is doubled, and it protects everyone within a 15 foot radius of your primary target. However, any attacks that originate from inside the radius will not be absorbed.)
  • Too Slow! (You may use this Power as a Reaction.)
  • Persistent Shielding (The barrier regenerates back to full strength at the end of each round of combat. It will still fall if the full amount of damage is dealt within a single round, or if you are interrupted. Cannot be taken with the "Tying Off" Enhancement.)


  • Unique Focus (This Power takes the form of a specific, unique item, which can be borrowed, lost, or stolen.)
    • Focus - Mother's Watch
  • Selfish (You may only target yourself.)
  • Focus (Activating this Power requires a specific kind of item.)


Range: 0 ( Arm's Reach ) Barrier Strength: 2 ( Outcome + 2 )
