Description

Perform the Five Point Technique via a series of quick pressure point hits on the target’s chest. As you do, channel your chi and speak a condition involving the number five. If the target cannot stop you from performing the technique, their heart will take a direct hit when they fulfill the chosen condition.

System Active

If you have a positive Outcome, speak a condition involving the number 5 aloud to your target. The first time they fulfill the condition, they take the activation roll's Outcome plus 2 damage. The target's Armor is Fully Effective.

This is not a standard hand-to-hand attack and is not affected by Powers that enhance standard hand-to-hand attacks.
