Powers - Vampire - Obtenebration - Dot 4 - Yawning Void


The Awakened can create or intensify a Well of Darkness:

Action Main.
Roll [Presence + Occult + Obtenebration].
Cost Spend 1 Will, and Invest up to 1 Aura per success from a Shadow Cloak.
Effect Shadows merge, creating or strengthening the epicenter of a Well of Darkness.
Effect Aura invested increases the Well’s [Aura] stat.
Effect Aura invested increases the Well’s [Size] stat.



The Awakened can replenish a depleted Well of Darkness:

Action Minor.
Roll [Presence + Occult + Obtenebration].
Cost Invest up to 1 Aura per success from a Shadow Cloak.
Effect Aura invested while [Aura < Size] replenishes the Well of Darkness, increasing [Aura] and making things… darker.
Effect Aura invested after [Aura = Size] overflows and dissipates immediately.



Features of a Well of Darkness:

Persistent
The aura within doesn’t dissipate on its own.
Corporeal:
Have [Aura / Size] stats.
Can be depleted of aura without being destroyed (immediately).
Immaterial:
Not a physical existence.
Suppresses Light:
The epicenter of a Well suppresses illumination by a number of stages equal to the Well’s Effect Level.
Suppression weakens with distance as if the number of meters from the epicenter were the threshold value for the reduction in Effect Level.
Ie: 1 meter of distance reduces Effect Level by one, 3m by two levels, 6m by three, 10m by four, etc.
Damaged by Light:
When the epicenter would be in:
Strong Sunlight, the Well loses 1 aura per round.
Weak Sunlight, the Well loses 1 aura per minute.
Harsh Artificial Light, the Well loses 1 aura per hour.
Well Lit, the Well loses 1 aura per day.
Assists the occult:
Areas of Stygian and deeper darkness have various occult purposes, may be necessary for the rituals of Abyssal Mysticism, and may act as a spontaneous gateway into the Void.



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