🎵Now your life is out of season🎵
A young man sits down on top of a Marshall 112 combo at Jake's Pawn Shop in a destitute part of Los Angeles. He fishes about on the stained carpet for the quarter inch input of the cable coiled in front of the dirty 1980s-era amp. He plugs it into the jack of the pristine pearl-white Ibanez Iceman. It reminds the kid of something a rockstar from the old days would play. Back when they were still made in Japan and not some lesser shithole. He strums the opening refrain from Stairway to Heaven as any good pawnshop guitarist should. His hand comes down to strum the next chord when he feels a presence swoop down on his mind. Like a Kingfisher slamming into the surface of his mind, he feels another with him. And then he feels nothing.
Nikki strums the second chord of Stairway to Heaven, his long brown hair hanging over his bare chest. He sings quietly, "and the piper's calling you to join him". He unplugs and stands up, Ibanez Iceman hanging around his slim body as if it never belonged anywhere else and walks out. His return to the skinlands announced by the jangle of bells tied around a pawn shop door.
Spend an Action, Exert your Mind, and roll Charisma + Influence6 against a Living Sapient target no farther than Arm's Reach, which they can resist by rolling Mind, Difficulty 6 as a Free Action as a Free Action. Targets that are Incapacitated from Mind damage cannot resist. If you succeed, you possess the target for Outcome in days. Difficulty
You may end the effect with a committed Action as long as you are within Arm's Reach of your body.
During the possession, any rolls that use Brawn or Dexterity use the target's instead of your own. Likewise you assume their physical Assets and Liabilities instead of your own. You do not gain access to the target's Active Powers, memories or skills. You retain access to your Active Powers but not any Passive ones.
If the body you are possessing dies, you die immediately. If the the body you left behind dies, you die when your possession ends.
While possessing if you take an action that violates the target's Limits or attempt self-harm, the target must make a Trauma roll. If they succeed, you are evicted from their body. Even if the roll fails, they may Exert their Mind to evict you.
