Shadow Slide

The Nightbane must be in Morphus form for this power to work. The character becomes an insubstantial shadow, or, more accurately, like one of those mirages you can see on a paved
road during a sunny day — a flickering shadow that seems to sink into the earth and fades away as if it never was. While in this two-dimensional form, the Nightbane can slither along walls or across the ground, virtually invisible and able to slide through any opening, no matter how narrow (only air tight containers will prevent the shadow-slider from coming through). The Nightbane’s clothing and small personal effects are transformed automatically; additionally, he can carry objects at an additional P.P.E. cost (2 P.P.E. per pound/0.45 kg of weight).

*Cost: 10 to activate, 10 per minute maintained

Soul Shield

Protects against mental attacks/probes and the See Truth Talent. The Soul Shield acts like a psychic mind block, preventing most means of magical or psionic probes from intruding into the Nightbane ‘s mind. More importantly, while the Soul Shield is up, any spell or power that tries to control or dominate the Nightbane ’s mind will automatically fail. Those who attempt to read the protected character’s mind will see only a pool of utter darkness. The mind
reader/psychic will find it very difficult to pry himself from that darkness (a save versus psionics is necessary; roll every melee round), and until he does, he will be unable to do anything other than stare vacantly into space.

*Cost: 4 to activate, lasts 1 hour

Sense Death and Destruction

As power, see Powers Unlimited 1, pg. 41.

*Range: 400ft radius
*Cost: 3 per activation, lasts 10 minutes

Mark of the Nightbane

Nightbanes with Stigmata characteristics can temporarily curse others
by inflicting their gruesome deformities upon them. If the victim
fails to save vs magic, the Nightbane’s characteristic stigmata suddenly
appears on his flesh and skin! Regardless of the type of stigmata, the
victim suffers 3D6 points of damage when they first appear and is
racked with pain (no initiative, -3 to all combat actions, -20% on all
skills). Humans and other non-supernatural targets must also save versus
a horror factor of 15. Duration is one minute per level of experience
and can be cast on an opponent up to 200 feet (61 m) away.

Limitations: Usable in Morphus form only. Not available until third
level. Can only be used by Nightbanes with one or more Stigmata characteristics.
The “mark” can only be cast on one person at a time and
only one “mark” attack per individual.

Cost: 10 P.P.E. to acquire permanently. Using it against human and
non-supernatural creatures costs 10 P.P.E.; using it against supernatural
beings costs 20 P.P.E.
