    Held Burn



    You call up a fast protective field to stop a danger. Spend 1 burn to defend someone else from an immediate threat, rolling +Freak instead of +Saviour.


    Spend 1 burn to create a barrier that will hold back threats as long as you keep your attention on it. The GM may call for you to spend another burn if the barrier is threatened by particularly powerful enemies.

    Reality Storm

    You channel a destructive burst with your powers. Spend 1 burn to directly engage a threat using your powers, rolling +Freak instead of +Danger. If you do, you will cause unwanted collateral damage unless you spend another burn.


    Spend 1 burn to use your powers to seize any one object up to the size of a person from someone within view.

    Lanuola wasn't fully coherent straight after she'd tried to power herself up. She was too busy trying to focus on all of the goons at the same time to notice Ground Zero touch down beside her. But then he is there. And she's told she can take a step back. She lets her guard drop, a close up showing a very relieved smile on her face.

    She jumps a little as a hand abruptly claps on her shoulder, her head whipping round. But then Lion speaks, and she relaxes further. Both Lion and GZ were up and fighting. That could only be a good thing. Her expression turns a little more serious as Lion gives her instructions, nodding along at first. Then frowning.

    "Umm... What do you mean you don't think I-I'd like it..?"

    But Mosi was already talking on the comms. Which made her jolt. She'd forgotten to put her earpiece back in! Fiddling with it, a panel shows that she misses Mosi's aside glance toward her. She belatedly realises she's being talked about and turns her head toward Lion with a questioning look, "... Huh..? What do you-" A hand claps down unexpectedly around her waist, "Wh-wha-" She gets yanked back, the wind up to a throw. There's a close up on Sunburst's eyes, suddenly very wide as comprehension dawns, "WAIT! NONON-AAAAAHHHH!!!"

    There's a wide shot. Sunburst is very much in the foreground, the ground, Lion, and GZ are far far below her. And she's still screaming. There's some kind of chatter in her ear, but compared to the rushing wind and the now approaching ground, it somehow feels far less important than it might have a few minutes ago. And then, once again, GZ is beside her. In her panic, it takes her a second to understand what's going on as he reaches out to take hold of her. Once she grasps the situation, though, she grabs onto him wholeheartedly, ending up being carried bridal-style. Her heart was still racing as she's asked if she was ready to finish the fight with Coyote. Frankly, she had no idea right now. But she found herself nodding anyway.

    Then time seemed to slow. From her elevated position, she spotted Coyote Knight, and Cindy. Then Coyote Knight cast some kind of spell, and the world looked like it was going to rapidly fill with bats. She prepared herself to try and conjure a light shield, but her concentration was shattered as she abruptly started falling again. With a yelp, she clutched tightly to GZ's clothing. With no ceremony, she then found herself on the floor, GZ crouched protectively above her. The strange sensation of his telekinetic aura tingled across her body. She didn't have time to contemplate that, though, before the first bat exploded.

    There's a series of panels showing Lanuola's perspective. All she can really see is Ground Zero crouched protectively over her. He almost fills the frame, only partial views of the exploding mammals breaking in to the corners. And each time his teeth grit in concentration. Then the barrage ends and he stands, holding out a hand to help her to her feet. A flush comes to Sunburst's face as she realises GZ's shirt has been shredded apart, and she becomes uncomfortably aware that the flush carried a glow with it. She accepts his help, using his offered hand to pull herself to her feet. She gives a nod in answer to his question, her attention locked firmly on his face even as her own was glowing from a confusing mix of feelings, "Y-Yeah..." She gave a start, now realising she'd been staring. "W-we should, uh, C-Coyote, uh..."

    Stepping awkwardly around GZ, she fixed her eyes on Coyote Knight. Then hesitated. Cindy was right there too... Could she do this..? Without hitting Cindy..? She had to try, right..? Clenching her fists, and once again adopting a decidedly unpracticed stance, she yelled out, "H-Hey! Y-you better back down! O-or, uh..." She hesitates again, eyes briefly sliding to GZ, then to Cindy, "O-or I'll blast you into another building!"

    She really hoped Coyote wouldn't call her bluff. More property damage was something she kinda wanted to avoid here.

    Spoiler: OoC
    As discussed in the discord, gonna give GZ influence over Sunburst in return. Also going to roll to provoke Coyote Knight. Basically saying 'Back down or get blasted' Expecting it to go poorly because Guilty.

    Provoke - (2D6-2)[4]
