Powers - Vampire - Obtenebration - Dot 2 - Smothering Shadows

The Awakened command’s the shadows cloaking them to impede and drain a foe:

Requires The Awakened must be Cloaked in Shadow.
Requires Target must be within ten meters of Awakened.
Action Minor.
Roll [Presence + Intimidation + Release Level, up to dots in Obtenebration].
Cost Invest up to 1 point of Aura per success from the Awakened’s Shadow Cloak.
Effect Shadows fly out from the Awakened’s Shadow Cloak to Smother the victim.
Effect The victim suffers an attack with successes equal to Aura invested into the Smothering Shadows attacking them. This attack can be dodged but not blocked.
Effect For each success on the victim’s dodge a point of invested Aura returns from the Smothering Shadows Effect to the Shadow Cloak effect.
Effect The victim may roll a reactive [ Will] check against the Smothering Shadows. Each success will dissipate Aura from the effect. If they have not made such a check since their last turn they may make this check at the start of their turn.
Effect The shadows dim the victim’s sight, granting a penalty to all sight based actions equal to the Effect Level of all Aura invested into Smothering Shadows on the victim.
Effect The shadows suppress the victim’s Stamina by an amount equal to the Effect Level of all Aura invested into Smothering Shadows on the victim. This temporarily reduces a victim’s Health. If a victim’s Stamina is suppressed to 0 or less they fall unconscious.
Note The total amount of Aura an Awakened can Invest into Smothering Shadows at any given time equals their dice pool for this power’s roll.



Note: This is an Vampiric Power which Awakened can gain by Absorbing some Soul Fragments.
