Legacy Power: Devour Soul

The shadowy tentacle lashes out, grabbing ahold of, not the man himself, but his soul, beginning to sap his very essence

A 3 Gift Drain Attributes Power created by SeedofEntropy.

Description

Using the open Void to suck out the soul of the living, Widow lashes out with a shadowy tendril at her target, feeding the hungry souls on the other side.

System

Spend an Action, Exert your Mind, and choose an Animate target within 45 feet. Make a contested roll of your Dexterity + Occult Difficulty 6 against the target's Body Difficulty 6 as a Free Action. If you succeed, Dexterity is reduced by one point for a day. You cannot reduce Attributes to zero.

Drained attributes are recorded as Battle Scars on the character sheet, and are affected by anything which interacts with Battle Scars.


Enhancements

  • Deadly (You may reduce Attributes to zero.)
  • Waste (Instead of success draining one Attribute point, the number of Attribute points you drain is equal to half your Outcome, rounded up.)
  • Destroy Attribute (Effect is permanent. The stat may be bought back up at its normal cost / rate.)
  • Siphon (You gain the Attributes you drain as a dice bonus to rolls made with that same Attribute equal to the amount you drained. Lasts one hour.)

Drawbacks

  • Conditional (This Effect is only available when a certain condition is met. This condition must be severe enough that this Gift is unusable the majority of the time.)
    • Condition - Void is Open
  • Tunnel Vision (While this Effect is active, you are at -2 dice to all Actions and cannot Concentrate.)

Parameters

Range: 1 ( 45 feet )
