Umbra's Reprise

7
Requires Seasoned
You possess the ability to rapidly heal yourself.
Used by Luci Alessi, Created by Riley.

Umbra's shadow will climb up her own body like rolling black rainwater. Black tendrils will shoot to different portions of the wound and slowly close them up. If the wound would have killed her, a line of shadowy stitches will follow along the injury. Reference: Venom.


You gain the following benefits at all times.

Any Injury you receive heals quickly, reducing its Severity by one level every 10 minutes, starting once it becomes stabilized. Battle Scars caused by your Injuries are also healed when the Injuries that caused them regenerate. Any Injuries you receive stabilize automatically and do not deteriorate further.

As long as at least half your body remains intact, you cannot die and remain at Incapacitated, regardless of how many Injuries you take. It is clear to observers that you are still alive. If you take any Injuries that would kill you, they instead cause Battle Scars which cannot be regenerated through this effect.

When the user activates this power the shadow of the item they are holding gets absorbed into their own as the item seemingly vanishes into darkness. When grabbing an object from the stash the shadow of the item exits their own and materializes in the user's hand. If the user doesn't replace an item they took their shadow starts deforming as it can't keep it's consistency due to the lack of matter.


Spend a Free Action to activate.

You may withdraw an item from your stash, or add an item that is within arm’s reach to your stash. You may store Objects in your stash, each no larger than something which could fit inside a briefcase (15 liters), and you may store up to 3 things at a time.

  • Containers which hold multiple things may count as a single item so long as the things within are generally packaged together. For instance, you may stash a clip full of bullets, a medical kit full of medical supplies, or a box of crackers, but you cannot stash a backpack full of miscellaneous equipment.
  • You may only attempt to store Objects which are free-standing and disconnected from other things. The use of this Effect will not allow you to sever any connections holding an Object in place.
  • The Maximum Object Size parameter is intended to roughly capture the weight / size restriction of items and isn’t intended to restrict shape. GM discretion is advised. A human being is level 4 in the Maximum Object Size parameter.

You can run at two times your normal movement speed.

  • Any Encumbrance penalty to your movement still applies, but you do not suffer from any sort of exhaustion.
  • Damage from a collision depends on your speed at the time, as well as what you hit. GM's discretion, but generally moving faster than a car on the freeway and hitting a dense, solid object like a wall or a tree should be lethal. Mundane armor will not apply, but any supernatural forms of protection will.

The ward requires Concentration to monitor, though it will remain active until you deactivate it. The presence of the Ward is obvious to anyone being watched by it, and it can be destroyed by mundane means.

Your Ward records all activity it observes, regardless of whether or not you are actively monitoring it. This recording can be played back and referenced later.

  • Your ward's recording is maintained even if your Ward is destroyed.
