Legacy Power: Snakebite

Strike with the ferocity of a Viper

A 1 Gift Afflict Power created by Iamangelofwar.

Description

Now your strikes are even more dangerous. When attacking with tooth or nail, you may inject the enemy with a powerful venom, like that of a dangerous snake.

System

Exert your Mind, choose a target within Arm's Reach, and roll Dexterity + Melee Difficulty 6 as a Committed Action. The target may roll to dodge or Defend (as for an attack with a thrown weapon) as a Reaction to resist.

If you succeed, the target takes a Severity 1 Injury that is not stopped by Armor. This Injury will worsen in Severity by 1 level every 1 day. The target begins experiencing noticeable symptoms immediately. If the target is cured, the Injury remains but does not worsen.

The target or anyone who examines them may roll Intellect + Medicine Difficulty 6 as a Committed Action to diagnose their affliction and determine how to treat it. The target may be cured by Anti-venom. They may also be cured if the Injury is successfully stabilized as though it were a Severity 6 Injury (Wits + Medicine Difficulty 8, requires equipped facilities (vet clinic, doc office).

If this Injury would kill the target, they may roll a single die, Difficulty 6. If they succeed, they survive and are cured.
