A 1 Gift Restrict Power used by Nikki, created by BOMBSHELL2150.


Nikki concentrates and plays a slow, dirgy tune that causes everyone around the target to slow to a crawl

System Active

Spend an Action, Exert your Mind, and roll Charisma + Performance Difficulty 6 to Restrict a target within 20 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.

The target may attempt to break free by making an attack against their bonds at +1 difficulty. Breaking the binding requires an amount of damage equal to double the initial Outcome. Damage from multiple attacks is cumulative and stacks linearly. Other individuals may also damage the binding by attacking it at +1 difficulty.


  • AoE (Affects all targets within a 10 foot radius of the primary target)
  • 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.)


  • Mage (Activating this Power requires at least two committed Actions and involves intricate use of the arms, hands and either the voice or an object. If interrupted during activation, the Power Fails.)
    • Activation Ritual - Playing Guitar
  • Focus (Activating this Power requires a specific kind of item.)
    • Object - Guitar
  • Slow Crawl (Instead of being fixed in place, the target is able to crawl at 1/4th of their normal move speed.)


Range: 1 ( 20 feet )
