Beyond Forgiveness Assault

Beyond Forgiveness Assault

Cost: 4m, 1wp, 1vc; Mins: Martial Arts 4, Essence 3; Type: Reflexive
Keywords: Combo-OK, Motivated, Overdrive
Duration: One Scene
Prerequisite Charms: Champion of Legend Form
Most often, the Champion of Legend does not fight with the intent to kill. Those foes that bar her from her goals must be defeated, but with no personal grudge against them she fights only to defeat them, not to kill. When that changes, her fury is a spectacular sight to behold… provided the watcher is not its target.

When activating this Charm, the hero designates a target or group of targets that have earned her wrath. She must have legitimately been enraged, not simply annoyed or inconvenienced; the most common targets of this Charm are thus those that attack the subjects of positive Intimacies the hero has. Injury to the hero herself is never grounds for activating this Charm, though for some heroes damage to personally-significant articles of clothing might be. For the remainder of the scene, the hero gains the following benefits:

  • The hero may ignore single attack against a designated target each action for purposes of calculating her multiple action and DV penalties.
  • All attacks against designated targets may do Lethal damage if the hero so desires
  • She may spend 1wp in Step 6 to turn (Virtue Rating) post-soak damage dice into automatic successes.
  • She ceases to treat conflicting motives as conflicting for the purposes of Champion of Legend Form while attacking or defending from the attacks of designated targets
  • If the hero possesses an Overdrive pool, she gains one Overdrive mote for each action in which the only targets she attacks are designated ones. Incidentally damaging bystanders with area-of-effect attacks is not considered an attack for these purposes, provided damaging the bystanders was not a motivating factor in deciding to use the Charm (Storytellers should use their best judgment here).
  • The hero adds (Virtue Rating) to her base Move, Dash, and Jump speeds when pursuing a designated target.
  • The hero’s motives are not considered to conflict for the purposes of Champion of Legend Style Charms, provided the Charms in question are being used to oppose designated targets.
