If you succeed, for the next minute, your target will do things they otherwise wouldn’t have done, inspired by the chosen emotion. They will outwardly display their emotions in an obvious and visible way.

When they go to possess the creature after they create the "wound" in an animal, they dissolve into a black liquid and enter that wound, before the wound is closed behind them.

Eviction: You are able to engage in combat or take other risky actions without being forced out of the host’s body. If you are forced out of the target's body prematurely, you must make a Trauma roll.
Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation will almost certainly be disturbed to see you ripping open the animal violently with gore when they crawl in, or crushing them into an unusually large splatter before fluid and user recombine if they are small. While the animal is completely unharmed, this is hard to prove to observers.
This Gift's Cost is capped at 2 and cannot be increased further.
Possession of this Power grants the following Trauma at all times: You must roll a Self-Control check if you are attacked by a creature you could use this power on, once per creature. Failure means you must do everything in your power to possess that creature.
I have found that ground beef works best, it is most able to dissolve into the most beautiful creation I have every laid my eyes upon. It must look weird, to the unvitiated, when I unhook my gear, pull out raw meat, and spread it out the wound, like a heathen in the woods practicing witchcraft, but within the first 5 minutes, the meat starts to dissolve, and explodes through their pores as a tar which resembles the void. 10 minutes in, and the flames begin, despite there being no heat, the healed will become engulfed in them, and visually, as I have heard from others, it appears as I am burning them alive, until 5 minutes later, the burnt husk appears as they did 15 minutes prior. To those around me, when I do this, I highly recommend they turn around with blindfolds and ear plugs, as they are more useful to me functional than useless in the presence of God's son.
Upon the cleanse of flesh, the blessed must consume nothing but liquids for 48 hours, otherwise, they may face their wound returning infected, due to the nature of the process.

This counts as a successful Makeshift Stabilization if the Injury was not already Stabilized; any Battle Scars caused by the Injury will remain. You may specify a specific condition that the patient must adhere to. If they break this condition, the treatment is immediately reversed. Record this regimen as a Condition.
Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation will almost certainly be disturbed to see Flesh melts into body, comes out of pores as tar, then target appears to be burnt alive until the effect is over.
Momma Ettu knows bad things happen to bad people, without fail. The balance always tips, and if her speaking a few words can help it along, so be it.
By merely mentioning that someone 'has it coming', on success, the target is afflicted with a functionally invisible karmic curse.
It's just.. the *worst* luck.
A root easily tripped across, a car that grazes them as they're crossing the street, or perhaps a monkey in a nearby tree haphazardly tossing a coconut-
The target will find themselves incredibly accident-prone, taking a minor 1 point injury per day, randomly.
Their 'destiny' is ripped away from them, and it's as though the universe itself is conspiring against them. A bird may fly in front of their fireball as they throw it. They may get accosted by a more of dust blown up their nose and randomly sneeze and interrupt themselves as they try to do a power.
This does not summon anything new, or create a disease in the target, it just ensures something in the environment will hurt them when the damage is 'due'

When crafting your oath, you may incorporate any of the following penalties:
The target cannot be compelled to agree via a direct threat of violence, another Effect, or another oath. If you would like to use clever wording to mislead the target, you must succeed a contested Intellect + (Culture or Influence) roll.

The mutant now occasionally lays large, orange-speckled eggs. These Eggs do not hatch nor spoil.

True to their namesake, the hacker can penetrate the security of any computer system, granting access to its informational stores, or, in a pinch, allowing them to issue commands. The hacked system will display a flickering image of a ghost until it is dismissed.

If your command does not require bypassing the security of the target (for example, typing on a computer that is unlocked), you do not need to Exert your Mind to activate this Effect, and activation only takes a single Action.
Your Hack cannot be reversed through mundane means for a number of hours equal to your Outcome.
