Phasing

You may phase through solid objects for brief periods of time.

Cooldown: (103 - 3 * Level) rounds
Duration: (6 + Level) rounds


This grants the ability to willingly shift between phased and not. When phased, if a creature also uses spinnerets to spin webs, those webs will be phase webs.

Stablization[edit | edit source]

If a creature is forced back out of phase due to Normality gas or any other reason, the creature will suffer ♥2d6 damage.

You take 2d6 damage from being forced into phase.

This damage is of Normality and Phase attribute.
