Legacy Power: Play Dead

“Looks like someone else got to ‘em first”

A 1 Gift Inanimate Transformation Power created by shady.


The Necromancer temporarily assumes the form of their own corpse, complete with maggots, spilled entrails, and exposed bone. They cannot move, speak, or use Powers while transformed, but their empty eye sockets see as well as ever. They revert to their old self in three minutes.


Exert your Mind and spend a round transforming into your corpse. The degree of rot and bodily damage is up to you, but the corpse must always be easily recognizable as your own. While transformed, you cannot take any actions, but you can perceive the world as normal. You remain that way for 3 minutes.

If you are damaged while transformed, the damage is realized when the effect ends. If you are damaged before you transform, your corpse will have the same injuries.


  • Gargoyle (You are capable of perceiving as normal while you are transformed.)


  • Obvious Disguise (Your transformed state looks like you. A statue, for example.)


Duration: 2 ( 3 minutes )
