Story behind the ability

Jason was on his way back from the clinic late at night when he witness a mugging in process he paniced and even tho he managed to intimidate the assailant with stating that he has called the cops and he will be apprehended the victim of the mugging was severely wounded.

When he kneeled to try to provide first aid to the guy , he saw that he had more than 6 stabs and would be dificault for him to survive until the ambulence came in time.

Being the kind person that he is he apologised for not being able to help even tho he was a doctor and as he was curcing himself and praying to god to help this man survive , while clutching his Caduceus necklace he felt a mysterious warm light engulfing him.

His mind somehow understood that this feeling he had felt could help the guy bleeding out on the floor next to him and as he touched the fainted guy the moment he checked again his injury and touched him he felt an intense pain on his own body instead his hand rupture with the same injury but the infury on the man disapeared.

The Monk enters a meditation while focusing on a remote location. A glowing sigil of an eye appears on their forehead, and a ghostly image of themselves meditating appears at the location they are envisioning. For a brief period, they may see the area they are projecting to as though they were standing there.

Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate. Select a target Location within 50 feet.

You may perceive things as if you were standing at that Location. The effect lasts indefinitely but you must maintain Concentration to keep it up. You cannot perceive anything at your physical location while the effect is active.

You create a visible manifestation at the Location where your senses are projected which looks like a ghostly image of yourself meditating.

The Psychic can speak directly into someone's mind, engaging in an entirely telepathic conversation with the target's inner monologue. While they do, they take on a blank, vacant stare in the direction of their target, and appear to be muttering gibberish to themselves under their breath.

Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate. Select a target within 10 miles of you. You must have a specific target in mind, but you require only an intuitive understanding of them, such as their name, face, or Location. This Effect cannot be used unless you can see your target.

There was a time when battlefield medics would race each other to see who could amputate the most limbs in an hour. Often they could be found standing beside a pile of limbs stacked head-high, wiping their blade on their aprons between patients.

These days amputations are rare, but Dr. Freeman believes they should be more common. "An injury separated from one's body is no injury at all," he says, removing a patient's mangled hand with a few practiced hacks. And it's true! Behold a fully-healed stump where once there was a threatening injury.

Exert your Mind and spend 2 Actions to activate. Select a Living target within arm's reach. This Effect cannot be used unless the chosen Injury is on a limb or extremity. You must actively and obviously use a blade or saw to activate this Effect. Choose a specific Injury on your target that has not yet been treated with this Effect and roll Dexterity + Medicine at Difficulty 6.

If you succeed, the Injury is reduced in Severity by your Outcome. If you reduce its Severity to 0, the Injury is fully healed. Otherwise, it is partially healed and will heal the rest of the way at its natural rate.

This counts as a successful Makeshift Stabilization if the Injury was not already Stabilized; any Battle Scars caused by the Injury will remain.

When you Activate this Effect, roll a single d10. If the result is 5 or lower, your target receives a Minor Battle Scar.

  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

You may create a replica of a specific being, though it is still limited by whatever you do or do not know about that individual.

Anyone who touches the illusion (or who would be able to perceive it significantly through a sense it cannot fool) realizes it is an illusion, and the entire effect will be ended for all targets.
