Scattering Embers Technique

Scattering Embers Technique

Cost: 12m; Mins: Martial Arts 5, Essence 4; Type: Reflexive (Step 2)
Keywords: Combo-OK, Obvious
Duration: One Action
Prerequisite Charms: Flying Spark Prana

The pyrotechnic master is beyond the touch of his foes, evaporating before their attacks only to reform and strike again from a safer position. This charm causes the user to dematerialize and reappear just before his next action as described for Flickering Spark Prana, but does so reflexively, perfectly negating the attack to which it responds. This constitutes a perfect dodge, and is therefore subject to an appropriate flaw of invulnerability for the martial artist’s character type.

Design Commentary

The image of the martial artist evaporating into sparks around an incoming attack is compelling and cool, as is the concept of an enemy overcoming this defense by of a flaw of invulnerability – reaching into the flame and pulling character back to reality by virtue of an emotional act of some kind.
