(M) Ricochet

(M) Ricochet

  • Attribute:  Influence
  • Type:  Defend
  • Time:  One action
  • Description:  A character with this skill can redirect ranged attacks by focusing the power of their mind to create an angled transient physical barrier in the line of fire. If the skill check is successful, all impact or energy damage from the attack is turned back at the attacker or towards another enemy or object within a range equal to the Influence score in yards (the target must be announced before the skill check is made). Targets are allowed a defend action to avoid the attacks, assuming they have the actions available to do so, which cause the same amount and type of damage as the original shot. The defend appears a brief oscillation (the color and shape of which is defined by the character) arced in front of the character in the line of fire. If the skill check fails, damage is taken normally.
  • Prerequisites:  The Screen skill and eight skill points in Iinexsis Combat
