Skoth

The All Seeing Eye Sees All: Because I am a devotee of Nethys the All Seeing Eye, my powers of observation are divinely enhanced; I may use Arcane + Divine instead of Focused to notice or perceive things, and I can sense things that require mystical awareness to detect.

Champion Sword-magi (-2): Because I have trained as a Sword Magi and can fight using my magic and my blade in tandem, when I am being Combative I may add my Arcane capability to attack and defend with a sword.

Sword Of The Sword-magi: Because I have trained as a Sword Magi and am adept at using my magic in conjunction with my blade, if I gain a boost when attacking while being Combative or Arcane, I may upgrade the boost to the spell Aspect Sword Of The Sword-Magi, with two (2) invokes. This allows me to imbue my sword with magical power.

Spellstrike of the Sword-magi: Because I have trained as a Sword Magi and can fight using my magic and my blade in tandem, if I attack an opponent in the same zone while being Quickly Combative and get a boost I may immediately invoke the boost to attack a second target in the same zone while being Quickly Arcane.

54 gp, 4 sp, a bag of small loose gems, letters of credit from the Cathedral of Abadar bank in Magnimar totalling to 300 gp. Skoth wears expensive robes with a hooded mantle, a master crafted but well-used sword with a hint of the exotic, a masterwork dagger with a small emerald pommel button, high-quality and comfortable swordsman's boots.

Recently he has also acquired a crossbow (a rather inelegant but inarguably pragmatic weapon) and a double handful of bolts, 6 finely balanced darts, a smokestick, some silk rope and a grappling hook.

Alchemical Annoyance, Faintly Magical (Transmutation)

Benefit: +2 while Quickly Focused to create advantage on a target that I can detect and have a line of sight to within two (2) zones. If I am successful I attach the situational Aspect Trapped By Tanglefoot Goo! to the target with three (3) invokes which roots them in their current zone and can cause flying targets to plummet if they use winged flight. This Aspect can be removed by overcoming a Good (+4) difficulty, but each failed attempt to overcome it expends an invoke..
     However when it is expended or removed a second situational Aspect, Tanglefoot Goo Residue!, is attached to the target with four (4) invokes. The second Aspect prevents the target from moving more than one (1) zone per action, and they cannot both move and attack. The second Aspect can be removed by overcoming a Superb (+6) difficulty, but each failed attempt to overcome it expends an invoke.

Uses: [1]

Each usage box indicates a seperate use or application and each use expends a usage box; when there are none left the item is expended.

The user must be able to throw the tanglefoot bag at the target.

Alchemical Annoyance, Faintly Magical (Conjuration)

Benefit: +0 while Sneakily Roguish to create advantage against a Fair (+2) difficulty. Success allows me to add the situational Aspect Thick Smoke to any two adjacent zones within one (1) zone of my zone. Any form of stiff wind will disperse the smoke within an exchange or two, but in the meantime the smoke cloud provides Superb (+5) active opposition to seeing in or out of the affected area.

Uses: [1]

Each usage box indicates a seperate use or application and each use expends a usage box; when there are none left the item is expended.

The user must be able to manipulate the smokestick to activate it; if anchoring the smokestick on an adjacent zone the user must also be able to toss the smokestick into the targeted zone.

Magical Spell Trapped On Paper, Faintly Magical (Illusion)

Benefit: +4 to cast Blur.

Uses: [1]

Each usage box indicates a seperate use or application and each use expends a usage box; when there are none left the item is expended.

This item requires Arcane +1 or better to use.

Arcane Spell (Illusion), Glamer

Create advantage while Cleverly Arcane vs an Average (+1) difficulty to attach the spell Aspect I'm So Blurry to myself. While this Aspect is active it is difficult for opponents to see or target me clearly, and all attempts to notice me via sight or directly affect me suffer a -2 penalty; this does not work against area affecting abilities. I may invoke this Aspect to gain a bonus on actions where my blurriness and indistinct outline benefit me, such as to defend against attacks or to avoid being recognized.

Overcoming Spell Aspects is explained in the Simple Magic guidelines.

Potion In A Flask, Faintly Magical (Healing)

Benefit: A character may drink the potion as an action to 'cast' the spell Heal on themselves. Treat this as if the overcome attempt succeeded with four (4) shifts of effect.

Uses: [1][1]

Each usage box indicates a seperate use or application and each use expends a usage box; when there are none left the item is expended.

Divine Spell (Healing)

While Carefully Divine attempt to clear a specific stress box or Consequence by overcoming a difficulty equal to the numerical value of the stress box or Consequence.

Potion In A Flask, Faintly Magical (Illusion)

Benefit: A character may drink the potion as an action to 'cast' the spell Invisibility on themselves. Treat this as if the create advantage attempt succeeded and the resulting spell Aspect has two (2) invokes.

Uses: [1]

Each usage box indicates a seperate use or application and each use expends a usage box; when there are none left the item is expended.

Arcane Spell (Illusion), Invisibility

Create advantage while Sneakily Arcane vs an Average (+1) difficulty to create a spell Aspect on myself called Invisible for one (1) scene or until all invocations are used. While the Aspect is in play, I cannot be seen by normal senses. I may invoke the Aspect to gain a bonus on an action where being invisible helps me succeed, such as attacking an unaware opponent. The spell Aspect can be temporarily neutralized by those with unusual senses or magic or special items creating an applicable advantage; the ability or item will generally specify how it works or what the difficulty is. The spell Aspect can also be overcome and thus removed by some abilities that explicitly counter invisibility or dispel magic in which case the difficulty is determined as normal per the simple magic guidelines.

Arcane Spell (Illusion), Glamer

Create advantage while Flashily Arcane vs an Average (+1) difficulty to create a spell Aspect on a target within one zone called Bedazzled! for one (1) scene or until all invocations are used. While the Aspect is active the target is partially blinded by brightly colored glittery spots of light that dance before their eyes; the target suffers a -2 penalty on all notice attempts and attacks that rely on sight. Anyone attacking or acting against the target may invoke this Aspect against the target to take advantage of their temporary blindness.

Overcoming Spell Aspects is explained in the Simple Magic guidelines.

Arcane Spell (Evocation), Force

While Forcefully Arcane I may attack a target within two (2) zones with a bolt of pure eldritch force. I may also attack targets further away with this spell, taking a -1 shift penalty for each additional two (2) zones between us. If I succeed with style I cannot reduce the stress to gain a boost, but if my target defends against this attack with style they do not get a boost either.

Arcane + Divine Spell (Abjuration, Divination)

Create advantage while Cleverly Arcane and adding my Divine capability as a bonus, vs a Fair (+2) difficulty to create a spell Aspect on myself called Guidance Of Nethys for 1 scene or until all invocations are used. I may invoke this Aspect to gain a +2 bonus to defend against or overcome mind affecting abilities and illusions.
