Legacy Power: YOU SHALL NOT PASS!!!

"Mine is actually better than Gandalf's in a few ways."

A 2 Gift Repel Power used by Preston Vincent Astor III, created by ShadyTradesman.


Preston withdraws his staff, spins it above his head and shouts "YOU SHALL NOT PASS!" before driving it into the ground. A visible shockwave eminates from the point of contact, and all monsters are ejected from the area and cannot approach. He may move slowly with the staff or leave it in position.


Exert your Mind, choose an Animate target, and roll Charisma + Occult Difficulty 6, which the target can resist by rolling Mind, Difficulty 6. Success prevents the target from approaching within 45 feet of you for 1 Minute. A tie cuts the target's move speed in half while moving towards you within 45 feet for the same amount of time.

This Power requires continuous Concentration to maintain. You may only move at walking speed while concentrating, and any significant interruption (such as taking damage or being grappled) will break the effect.


  • Repulsion Field (This Power now affects all targets within [[range]] of you, including those that enter the area after the initial activation.)
  • Safe Zone (Instead of always centering on you, your repulsion field is attached to an object or fixed location that is not tied to you.)


  • Biased (Only affects a specific type of being. For example, undead creatures, animals, or mundane humans.)
    • Type of Being - Monsters
  • Mage (Activating this Effect 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 Effect fails.)
    • Activation Ritual - spin staff above head and shout YOU SHALL NOT PASS! before slamming it on the ground
  • Exhausting (After you finish activating this Effect, you cannot move quicker than a walk (max 15 feet per Round) for one minute and suffer a -1 dice penalty for an hour.)
  • Focus (Using this Effect requires a specific kind of item.)
    • Object - A staff


Duration: 1 ( 1 Minute ) Range: 1 ( 45 feet )
