TARGET #
LEVEL 1 SKIN OF THE CHAMELEON THIS POWER ALLOWS THE GARGOYLES SKIN TO TAKE ON THE COLOR AND TEXTURE OF THE SURROUNDING ENVIRONMENT. THE COLORATION CHANGES REFLEXIVELY AS LONG THE GARGOYLE MAINTAINS A WALKING PACE OR SLOWER SPEED. MORE RAPID SPEEDS CAUSE THE CREATURES APPEARANCE TO BLUR, MINIMIZING THE CAMOUFLAGE EFFECT (HALF THE NUMBER OF SUCCESSES). IF THIS POWER IS USED WHILE IN FLIGHT, THE GARGOYLE WILL BLEND IN WITH THE NIGHT SKY, AS LONG AS THEIR FLIGHT PATH IS IN A RELATIVELY OPEN AREA. IN MORE DENSE AREAS, SUCH AS LARGE CITIES WITH SKYSCRAPERS AND TALL BUILDINGS, THE GARGOYLES IMAGE PRODUCES A BLACK SILHOUETTE WHICH WILL LIKELY BE NOTICED. WHILE THE OBSERVER MAY DISTINGUISH SOMETHING THERE, THEY STILL MAY NOT KNOW JUST EXACTLY WHAT THAT "SOMETHING" IS (HALF THE NUMBER OF SUCCESSES). FREE

EACH SUCCESS ADDS A +1 MODIFIER TO PERCEPTION TESTS.

LEVEL 2 SCRY THE HEARTHSTONE THIS POWER ALLOWS THE GARGOYLE TO MAINTAIN VIGILANCE OVER PART OR ALL OF AN ENCLOSED STRUCTURE. THE GARGOYLE GAINS AN INNATE SENSE OF WHERE ALL BEINGS ARE LOCATED WITHIN THE STRUCTURE, EVEN THOSE HIDDEN BY OBFUSCATE OR OTHER SUPERNATURAL OR MAGICAL MEANS OF CONCEALMENT. THE GARGOYLE WILL KNOW THE EXACT LOCATION, SIZE AND EVEN PHYSICAL CONDITION OF ALL BEINGS WITHIN THE STRUCTURE. ONCE ACTIVE, THIS POWER REMAINS IN EFFECT AS LONG AS THE GARGOYLE IS WITHIN, OR IN CONTACT WITH THE STRUCTURE, OR UNTIL THE NEXT SUNSET. THIS POWER IS NOT LIMITED BY THE SIZE OF A STRUCTURE AND IS AS EFFECTIVE ON A LARGE CASTLE AS IT WOULD BE ON A SMALL COTTAGE. IF ANOTHER CHARACTER IS USING A CONCEALMENT POWER SUCH AS OBFUSCATE OR AN INVISIBILITY SPELL, A SUCCESSFUL ROLL WILL ONLY INDICATE THAT A "BEING" IS THERE, BUT WILL NOT REVEAL THEIR EXACT NATURE. complex

4 (INTELLIGENCE)

4+ QUICKNESS MODIFIER AGAINST TARGETS ATTEMPTING TO HIDE OR CONCEALED (OPPOSED).

LEVEL 3 BOND WITH THE MOUNTAIN SIMILAR TO THE PROTEAN POWER OF EARTH MELD, THIS POWER ALLOWS THE GARGOYLE TO EFFECTIVELY MELD WITH STONE, OR BUILDING MATERIALS THAT ARE STONELIKE, SUCH AS CEMENT. THIS "MERGING" IS NOT AS COMPLETE AS THE EFFECTS OF EARTH MELD, AND A FAINT OUTLINE OF THE GARGOYLES SHAPE MAY BE NOTICED BY AN OPPOSED PERCEPTION TEST. IF A CHARACTER IS ATTACKED WHILE IN THIS STATE, THEY RECEIVE DOUBLE THEIR BODY DICE (INCLUDING FORTITUDE) TO RESIST DAMAGE. IF THE CHARACTER TAKES A SERIOUS WOUND OR HIGHER, IN A SINGLE ATTACK, THEY ARE IMMEDIATELY FORCED FROM THEIR BOND AND SUFFER A +2 PENALTY TO ALL TARGET NUMBERS UNTIL AFTER THEIR NEXT ACTION, AS A RESULT OF DISORIENTATION. complex

6 (BODY)

4+ INTELLIGENCE MODIFIER AGAINST SEARCHING TARGETS.

LEVEL 4 ARMOR OF TERRA THIS POWER ALLOWS THE GARGOYLE'S SKIN TO BECOME IMMEASURABLY TOUGHER THAN IT ONCE WAS, AND ALLOWS THE CHARACTER A HIGHER PAIN THRESHOLD. IT ALSO ALLOWS FOR A LIMITED AMOUNT OF IMMUNITY TO FIRE. THE GARGOYLE RECEIVES A -1 MODIFIER TO ALL AGGRAVATED DAMAGE AND A -2 MODIFIER TO ALL OTHER ATTACKS. THE POWER LEVEL OF ALL FIRE DAMAGE IS HALVED. AUTOMATIC

LEVEL 5 FLOW WITHIN THE MOUNTAIN the GARGOYLE is no longer limited to just melding with STONE, they MAY ACTUALLY MOVE THROUGH IT AS IF WALKING. THE GARGOYLE MUST FIRST USE THE LEVEL THREE POWER TO BOND WITH THE STONE, THEN THEY may move about at a rate of half their normal walking speed. THE GARGOYLE MAY USE THIS POWER TO COMPLETELY CONCEAL THEMSELVES WITHIN THE STONE, AS WELL AS ATTEMPT TO LITERALLY "WALK THROUGH" WALLS TO TRAVEL FROM ONE ROOM TO ANOTHER. THE GARGOYLE MAY MOVE A NUMBER OF FEET FOR EACH SUCCESS ROLLED, PER TURN. KEEP IN MIND THAT THE CHARACTER IS ONLY ABLE TO MOVE THROUGH SOLID STONE OR CEMENT AND LIMITATIONS MAY EXIST DEPENDING ON THE ARCHITECTURE OF THE STRUCTURE (GAMEMASTER'S DISCRETION). complex
