Four Eyes

2
Requires Seasoned
The power to observe things at a distance.
Used by Luci Alessi, Created by Riley.
(Activating this Effect is not obvious. The only sign you are using an Effect is a snap of her fingers and a point of her finger.. )

Umbra orders Luci to go forward and traverse the shadows as a scout. During the time limit, Luci and Umbra share the sense of sight. The pain and torment of being stretched thin and being so far away from Umbra is so great for Luci that it minorly manifests on Umbra's body as a collection of cuts along the body. If Luci does a sloppy job, she may incidentally share more than sight with Umbra and overwhelm her senses to the point of requiring a trauma roll.


Take a Severity-1 Injury and spend an Action to activate. Make a Trauma roll when you activate this Effect.

You may perceive things through sight within 500 feet of you as though there were no walls or obstacles blocking your view for the next five minutes.

This Effect is not obvious, and the only sign you are using an Effect is a snap of her fingers and a point of her finger.. If someone suspects that an Effect was used, they must roll Perception + Alertness, Difficulty 8 to pick up on your Tell.

Any Perception rolls made through obstacles are rolled at +1 Difficulty.

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

When Guido instinctively creates a Time Distortion, the pulsing nucleus of the temporal rift is unstable, exploding moments after it is created.


This Effect activates whenever Approached Aggressively. It does not require an Action or Exertion. The area within 10 feet of you immediately and obviously becomes imminently dangerous. Anyone in the area has 1 Round to attempt to escape. The area within 10 feet of you immediately and obviously becomes imminently dangerous. Anyone in the area has 1 Round to attempt to escape. During the next Round, on your Initiative, roll Intellect + Science at Difficulty 6. Targets remaining inside the radius may attempt an appropriate Reaction at GM’s discretion. Finding a physical barrier to use as cover will cut total damage taken in half (applies after Reaction roll but before Armor).

If the Outcome is positive, your blast hits everything within 10 feet of you with Damage equal to your Outcome + 2. Armor is fully effective against this damage. If you botched the activation roll, you will also take full damage from the blast, otherwise it will not hurt you.

With a few gentle strums, the target feels all of their ailes slowly fading away. Murphy smiles at them, checking them for any more maladies before putting their guitar away and taking a moment to rest...


Exert your Mind and spend 15 minutes to activate. Select a Living target within arm's reach. You must actively and obviously use Musical Instrument to activate this Effect.

You may cure any single disease or poison afflicting your target even if you have not diagnosed or fully understood it. You may cure diseases or poisons even if they are not treatable through modern medicine. During treatment, the malady you are treating does not progress or cause additional damage or other effects.

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.

  • Without some sort of diagnostic Effect, “fully diagnosing” a disease or poison will always require a roll of some sort, frequently Intellect + Medicine, but the specific roll and difficulty is at GM’s discretion.
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

Allena's shadow evolves and becomes hyper-aware of surrounding firearms. Whenever it senses a firearm being aimed at its user it leaves a tiny piece of itself inside the gun. This orb of darkness festers inside the firearm. When the firearm is fired and the internal combustion within the barrel takes place the flash of fire and light disturbs the orb causing it to expand into a spiked ball that destroys the internals of the gun.

Allena's shadow, after too many near-lethal experiences with firearms has developed a distaste for them.


This Effect activates whenever a firearm is aimed towards you while your Hoplophobia is triggered. It does not require an Action or Exertion. Select a Firearm within 20 feet no larger than a duffel bag (35 liters). Roll Charisma + Occult Difficulty 6.

The target object is sabotaged. No immediate change is visible, but the next time the firearm is fired, this Power takes effect. If your Outcome is 4 or higher, the target will be completely destroyed and can no longer function, though it may still be repaired. If your Outcome is less than 4, the target will be partially damaged, and any attempts to use it will suffer a dice penalty equal to your Outcome.

Possession of this Power grants the following Trauma at all times: Hoplophobia, A Self-Control roll to avoid getting angry or running away from a firearm..

  • The penalty from an object being damaged will stack with itself if a target is hit multiple times, but the object is destroyed when it reaches a total penalty of -4.
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

Flesh begins to almost knit itself back together in a fashion that makes it hard to believe it was ever there if not for lingering bits of phantom pain still in the patient's mind.

A power of unknown origins even to it's possessor, perhaps simply developed out of empathy for those suffering.


Exert your Mind and spend 1 minute to activate. Select a Living target within arm's reach. You cannot target yourself. Choose a specific Injury on your target that has not yet been treated with this Effect and roll Intellect + Firearms 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.

Possession of this Power grants the following Battle Scar: Limp/ nerve damage in right leg.

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

Nickolai uses all of his might to smash his fists together, with enough force to send a shock wave traveling throughout his entire body, hurting him in the process.
As his monstrous metallic arms make contact with one another, a cacophonous screech of metal fills the room, followed by a mighty roar coming from Nickolai himself, the roar is that of an furious bear. NIckolai puts all of his willpower into that singular roar, as his vision goes red and he gets filled with rage fueled by, in no small amount the pain coursing through his body.

Following the first roar, another one resounds as if in response, directly behind the target of Nickolai's ire, as a giant semi transparent brown bear comes out of thin air, restraining the target.


Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate. Select a target within 20 feet. Roll a single d10, Difficulty 4. If you fail or botch, the Effect fails and you cannot activate it again for an hour. Roll Brawn + Animals at Difficulty 6. The target] may contest by Defending or Dodging.

If you succeed, your target will be restricted at their location by a physical, tangible binding. They cannot move to a new location, and any physical actions they take suffer a dice penalty equal to twice the contested Outcome from the Effect activation, except attempts to escape or break the binding, which only suffer half this penalty.

The binding around a target must be destroyed in order for them to break free. Breaking the binding requires a total amount of damage equal to twice the contested Outcome from the Effect activation. Damage from multiple attacks is cumulative and stacks linearly.

  • If this Effect fails due to the Unreliable check, you must still pay any associated activation costs.
  • For entities whose movement could be considered an attack (e.g. a kaiju), the GM may rule that they are merely slowed instead of fully restricted.
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

When activated, purple cloud-like whips burst from The Ranger's body and flow into the nostrils of all nearby animals.
