PostSubject: Lore of the Fundament: Common   Sun Sep 01, 2013 2:03 pm

Associated House: None

While most lore is considered proprietary to the House that created it, two paths exist as tools that every angel (or demon) needed to further their work amid the wonders of Paradise. The Lore of the Fundament was the first, encompassing the basic building blocks of the physical universe, in effect creating a set of principles that provided the foundation upon which the work of all the Houses was based. The second set of common lore evolved among the fallen during the Age of Wrath as a means of facilitating contact between humanity and the rebel host.


* Manipulate Gravity [ Demon: The Fallen -- Page 172 ]
The demon can alter the way gravity affects her body, allowing her to leap enormous distances, hang suspended in the air, or plunge at her foes like a meteorite.

System: Roll Strength + Athletics. The demon can leap (or climb) up to 20 yards per success, or fall a similar distance without suffering injury. Completely canceling the effect of gravity requires a number of successes equal to the character's Stamina. Characters who defy gravity aren't weightless, per se -- they're still affected by outside forces as normal. The effects of this evocation last for a single turn.

Torment: Monstrous demons who perform this evocation leave a wash of turbulence in their wake, randomly increasing or decreasing the effects of gravity on surrounding objects or people who pass within a number of yards equal to the demon's Torment score. The Storyteller is free to use her discretion when describing the chaotic effects that occur in the monster's passing.

** Manipulate Adhesion [ Demon: The Fallen -- Page 173 ]
The demon can affect her body's adhesion to physical objects. She can run up walls, hang from a ceiling, or cling to the side of a moving car like a spider.

System: Roll Dexterity + Athletics. The difficulty is determined by the angle of the surface relative to the earth. Running up a steep slope is difficulty 6, while a vertical surface is 7. Moving along an inverted plane (like a ceiling) is difficulty 8. The character can move up to three yards along such a surface per success rolled. The effects of this evocation last for a single turn.

Torment: When a monstrous demon performs this evocation, the surfaces with which she interacts are warped by her passing, causing them to radiate waves of intense heat and leave patterns of the demon's hands and feet on the surface. Individuals coming into contact with these surfaces in the same turn as the demon touched them suffer one level of lethal damage.


*** Manipulate Inertia [ Demon: The Fallen -- Page 173 ]

The demon can affect the inertia of anything she touches, stopping it dead or granting it irresistible force. She can snatch projectiles out of the air (provided she can see them), or throw an object farther than any human could imagine.

System: Roll Dexterity + Athletics. The demon can throw an object up to 30 yards per success rolled, regardless of her Strength. Snatching a projectile out of the air requires rolling a number of successes equal to or greater than the projectile's damage dice. For example, a thrown knife inflicts Strength + 1 damage. If the person throwing the knife has Strength 3, you must roll four or more successes for your character to catch the knife. Your demon has to be able to see the projectile to affect it. Rocks, knives, even arrows are possible candidates, but bullets aren't. If your demon throws a projectile at a target, each extra success achieved becomes an automatic level of damage. The effects of this evocation last for a single turn.

Torment: Items affects by a monstrous demon become inherently unstable for a period of time, creating potential for disaster for the next person who tries to use them. For a period of turns equal to the character's Torment, any item that was the focus of this evocation causes a botch on a rolled 1, 2, or 3 when used for any reason.

**** Manipulate Acceleration [ Demon: The Fallen -- Page 173 ]
The demon can affect the acceleration of her own body, granting her supernatural speed and force.

System: Spend one Faith Point and roll Dexterity + Athletics. Each success allows your demon to walk up to 10 yards per success per turn, jog 20 yards per success per turn, or run 40 yards per success per turn. If used in combat, treat these successes as automatic levels of damage for hand-to-hand, melee, or ranged attacks using thrown weapons. These damage levels can be split among multiple targets if desired. The effects of this evocation last for a single turn.

Torment: The accelerations of a monstrous demon so disturbs the air around her that she's surrounded by an aura of blistering heat that radiates out a number of yards equal to the character's Torment score. Living beings caught within the area of effect suffer one level of bashing damage.


***** Manipulate Cohesion [ Demon: The Fallen -- Page 173 ]
The demon can manipulate the state of any inanimate matter she touches. She can walk on water or air or break down solid objects into their component particles.

System: The demon must be able to physically touch the matter she wishes to affect. Spend one Faith Point and roll Stamina + Science. The difficulty depends on the matter involved and the degree to which it's affected. Changing water to ice or steam is difficulty 6. Increasing the cohesion of water to ice or steam is difficulty 6. Increasing the cohesion of water or air to the degree that it briefly supports the demon's weight is difficulty 7. Vaporizing wood, cloth, or other low-density material is difficulty 8, while doing the same to high-density material such as metal or stone is difficulty 9. Each success allows the demon to affect one cubic foot of matte. The effects of this evocation last for a single turn, after which the materials affect return to normal or remain in their current state if it's natural for the material in question. Living beings targeted with this effect suffer a level of lethal damage for each success gained on the roll.

Torment: Matter affected by a monstrous demon remains inherently unstable for a number of turns equal to the character's Torment, changing states at random. The Storyteller is free to use her discretion when describing the chaotic effects that occur in the wake of the demon's manipulation.
