INHUMAN STRENGTH -2

IMPROVED LIFTING. Whenever lifting or breaking inanimate things, you gain a +3 to your Might score.
BRUISING STRENGTH. Roll Might at +1 whenever grappling. This also allows a 2-stress hit on an opponent as a supplemental action during a grapple.

HAMMER BLOWS. With attacks that depend on muscular force increase the stress dealt by two on a successful hit.

INCITE EMOTION (FEAR), AT RANGE [-2] (page 172)

  • Emotion Touch:
    Do maneuvers at +2 to the roll using Intimidation, forcing an emotion on the target as a temporary aspect. Target defends using Discipline. May be done as a Block instead.
  • At Range:
    You may use this ability on targets up to one zone away without touching them.

SPIRIT FORM [-3]

  • Insubstantial
    You are incorporeal, able to pass through walls, reducing most borders to zero. Thresholds, however, will act as physical barriers to you. Without also taking Physical Immunity to a broad range of effects, you can still be harmed by physical attacks.
  • Variable Manifestation
    You must manifest visibly to truly perceive anything “useful” about the world around you. Even when largely separated from the world, your presence may be felt by those with a high Lore or other means of magical sensitivity.
  • Variable Visage
    As a spirit, your form may change somewhat in response to your mood or idea of self, causing you to appear more fearsome or beautiful, granting a +2 to appropriate social actions based on appearance (Intimidation for a fearsome appearance, Rapport or Deceit for a beautiful one). Usually this is as an exaggeration of your “normal” appearance in some way.
