Flowering Web

Flowering Web, Green Jade and Starmetal Breastplate

This breastplate of green jade is wrought in an intricate pattern of leaves, and rimmed with a fine starmetal banding. Wearers who master it learn to share in the life of the world around them, drawing on the living Essence of nearby plants to gain strength, or shunting wounds elsewhere rather than suffering them.

Evocations

A Solar, Dragon-Blooded, or Sidereal may attune to this armor. By spending an extra 4m when attuning the armor, the wearer is infused with the living Essence of the world around them, halving healing times and wound penalties (round up).

Surging Growth Consumption
Cost: 1m, 1 wp; Type: Reflexive; Mins: Essence 1
Keywords: None.
Prerequisites: None

The wearer of Flowering Web draws on the vitality of the local vegetation and foliage, rolling Willpower, and gaining one initiative per success. At the GM’s discretion, this roll may suffer a penalty if there is limited plant life nearby, up to -3 for the harsh reaches of the Southern desert or Northern tundra. Gaining one or more points of initiative from this Evocation sucks the life out of nearby plants, blighting all foliage within a single range band of the user.

Special Activation Rules: This evocation may only be used once per scene, unless reset by growing new foliage across two range bands with Vines Winding From Pain. It cannot be used while the wielder is within medium range of a blighted area created through the use of Flowering Web’s Evocations, or at greater than medium range from the ground.

As well as drawing on the strength of the world around her, the wearer of Flowering Web may shunt her wounds through her link to the living Essence of nearby plants. The wearer of Flowering Web may activate this charm upon suffering one or more health levels from a decisive attack, shunting the damage to the foliage around her. By spending two initiative for each health level shed in this way, the wearer creates a patch of withered growth, which fills a single range band around her.

Special Activation Rules: This evocation may only be used once per scene, unless reset by growing new foliage across two range bands with Vines Winding From Pain. It cannot be used while the wielder is within medium range of a blighted area created through the use of Flowering Web’s Evocations, or at greater than medium range from the ground.

Vines Winding From Pain
Cost: 6m; Type: Reflexive; Mins: Essence 3
Keywords: Decisive-only
Prerequisites: Vines Winding From Pain, World-Armor Approach

By fully mastering the bond of living Essence granted by the artifact, the wearer of Flowering Web may draw from the life of her enemies to replenish the growth around her. This charm supplements a decisive attack, adding one die of damage for each range band of blighted growth within medium range of the target, to a maximum of (wearer’s Essence) dice. For every three full health levels of damage dealt by the attack, new growth rapidly blooms to fill one range band near the target, filling blighted areas first. At the ST’s discretion, this may cause penalties for characters within the new growth.
