Powers - Innate - Aspect of Heartwood - Dot 2 - Resinous Exudation

The Awakened’s blood thickens, congealing in their wounds:

Action Negligible, Reactive.
Responds to Awakened receives a wound.
Roll [Stamina + Survival + Aspect of Heartwood]
Cost Invest up to 1 Aura per success from Greenwood Flesh manifestation.
Effect A thick, red, resinous, sap like substance congeals in the Awakened’s wounds.
Effect If the amount of aura invested into Resinous Exudation would exceed twice the number of Lethal or Aggravated wound levels the Awakened currently has, (by either over production or healing), then the excess points of exudation fall from the Awakened and form Crystallized Resin (see below for details).
Note If the Awakened ends the scene with wounds congealed by Resinous Exudation, (ie: they don’t heal), then the invested aura dissipates normally.


While an Awakened’s wounds are congealed with Resinous Exudation:

The armor effect of Greenwood Flesh is improved. Aura invested into exudation congealing a character’s wounds contributes to the Effect Level of Greenwood Flesh for the purposes of its armor bonus only. Aura invested in Resinous Exudation cannot be spent on powers, although it contributes to Release Level and counts towards the maximum aura limits as per normal.
Bleeding effects on the Awakened are suppressed by the number of points of aura invested into the exudation in their wounds.
Wound Penalties the Awakened would suffer are suppressed by the number of points of aura invested into the exudation in their wounds.
The character gains “negative health boxes” equal to the Effect Level of the Resinous Exudation in their wounds. They will remain conscious even if their wounds would take them that many health boxes below 0.


Crystallized Resin, (exudation which has fallen free of an awakened), has the following properties:

Is a low grade magical material with primary Dynamism, and secondary Stasis and Entropy, traits. Its has a quintessence value equal to the aura used to create it.
Contains no aura. The aura that was invested is transformed in the process of the resinous exudation falling free and crystallizing. Crystallized Resin does not contribute to Release Level, nor does it count toward the maximum amount of aura that can be expressed.
Does not dissipate at the end of the scene. It’s a permanent (but not indestructible) material.



Note: This is an Innate Power which Aspects of Heartwood can gain by Assimilating some Essence.
