Passive Effects

Passive Effects for Dark Magic are unique to each School of Powers:

Shadow Power Passives

Applies to Shadow Powers only NOT Void Powers

Insidious Force

  • -10 to enemy resist if power is used from behind the target or target is unaware it is being targeted (i.e. caster is hidden)

Void Power Passives

Volatile Powers

  • All Void Powers are considered Volatile Powers

Call of the Void

Using Void powers is a dangerous affair, as it opens the caster up the eternal emptiness of the void, inexplicably calling them towards oblivion.

  • Immediately after any successful cast of a Void Power roll 1d10 per stack of Volatile Void energy, if rolling one or more “0’s” the caster succumbs to the Call of the Void
  • If succumbing to the Call of the Void, effects vary depending on whether an offensive or non-offensive power was used
    • offensive power: the caster will redirect the power onto themselves (or if not possible, the nearest ally)
    • non-offensive power: the caster cancels the power at the last second (still losing the spirit) and instead auto self inflicts a wound (typically with whatever main hand weapon is equipped)
