NWoD Mage the Awakening Spell Untouchable
Duration: Prolonged (one scene)
Cost: 1 Mana (optional)
Description: The best policy for avoiding harm in a fight is to not be where attacks are directed. This spell enables a mage to perform slight intuitive “tweaks” on the local fabric of space to slip away from hostile attention. Generally speaking, this exceptional avoidance looks coincidental, something plausible for the individual in question. Thus, a seemingly clumsy mage blunders his way out of harm’s way, while a lithe, graceful martial artist flows like water, managing to avoid her enemy’s path at the last possible moment.
The mage gains one point of armor per dot he possesses in the Space Arcanum. By spending one Mana, the Duration can be made to last for one day. Most mages cast such a shielding spell at the beginning of the day, as part of their morning rituals. Successes are used to combat attempts to dispel the shield.
Note that this magical armor applies against attempts to grapple the caster (both his Defense and Untouchable armor are subtracted from the grappler’s dice pool when he attempts to achieve a hold on the mage), but it does not protect against attempts by an opponent to overpower and/or inflict damage once he has managed to grapple the mage.
Any rulings that are added - such as spells being converted into conditions, or providing conditions - can be detailed here. If there are no such things to be added, this section can be removed.
House rules for Chronicle 1 go here. If there are none to speak of, delete this section. If there are multiple chronicles with different house rules, simply replicate this section (everything from ===Chronicle 1=== and onward) for each chronicle.
(this is going to eventually be a bunch of links. For now, just hop back to the Spells page. DO NOT EDIT THIS SECTION.)
