Campaign of the Month: September 2013
Step Number: Rank+CHA
Duration: Rank hours
The Ease Suffering power allows a questor to ease emotional and physical suffering. The power cannot heal or permanently remove damage, but it stops pain. The Ease Suffering power is useful against the pain of Wounds taken during battle, emotional terror caused by Horrors, and emotional attacks such as fear spells. The questor spends 3 rounds speaking to those whose suffering he wishes to ease, then makes an Ease Suffering Test against the highest Social Defense among the target group, +1 for each additional character. If the test succeeds, those characters affected by the Ease Suffering power feel comforted and stop feeling any pain. Characters don’t suffer any negative effects from Wounds while under the effect of this power. Any magical effect that induces pain in its victims, such as the Cause Pain questor power or the Pain spell, ends immediately for characters comforted by the Ease Suffering power.
