Paralyzing Gaze 2.0

A Locking Gaze

A 5 Gift Restrict Power used by Bernard Tox, created by Tsair.


Bernard's eyes lock onto the target, fixing them in place until they struggle free.

System Active

Spend an Action, Exert your Mind, and roll Perception + Alertness Difficulty 6 to Restrict a target within 300 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. They suffer a penalty equal to the binding strength.

The target may attempt to break free by making a Wits+Influence roll, diff 7. Breaking the binding requires an amount of damage equal to double the initial Outcome. Damage from multiple attacks is cumulative and stacks linearly. The binding regains one binding strength per round, up to a maximum of the original outcome+3. Other individuals may also damage the binding by attacking it at +1 difficulty.


  • Persistent Binding (Unless the binding is fully escaped, the remaining amount of damage needed to escape increases by 1 per round, up to a limit of the initial Outcome + 3.)
  • Cocoon (Any physical actions taken by the target suffer a dice penalty equal to the binding strength. 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, the target may roll Mind at Difficulty 7 to attempt to escape the binding.)


  • Tunnel Vision (While this power is active, you are at -2 dice to all Actions, and cannot Concentrate.)


Range: 2 ( 300 feet )
