Legacy Power: Paralysis of fear


A 2 Gift Restrict Power used by Chris Charvis, created by Rainbowdragon1357.


Chris using extreme focus can make people freeze in fear by taking advantage of their brain, by twitching his face slightly


Spend an Action, Exert your Mind, and roll Intellect + Influence 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.


  • Concealed (Using this Effect is not obvious. Choose a Tell that occurs only when you use the Effect; if-- and only if-- someone suspects that a Effect was used, they must roll Perception + Alertness, Difficulty 8 to pick up on your Tell.)
    • Tell - Chris face twitches slightly

  • Ethereal Chains (The binding can no longer be attacked through mundane means. Instead, a restricted target may roll Mind at Difficulty 7 to attempt to escape the binding.)


  • Fan Dance (Must retain Concentration to keep up the effect. While active, you are unable to do much besides move slowly, and if you are Injured or otherwise disrupted, the effect ends.)
  • 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 )
