Family: Invisible
Description: The character is either partially or wholly invisible for whatever reason, either a magical misdirection or mundane redirection of light on the visible spectrum. As it is assumed to apply only to the naked eye, this is a fallible status effect, and can be foiled by many things at the GM's discretion such as alternate methods of percieving the world. It is also a good idea to still duck if someone blazes a fully automatic shotgun in your general direction.
Customs Friendly: No
Affects: Biological, Robot (Usually)
Mild: [Fade] The target is partially invisible, making for a confusing target. Attacks rolled under 25% of the attacker's possible roll miss automatically. The Faded character's anti-detection roll results are raised to 125% (a roll result of 60 becomes 75).
Mild (Alt): [Blink] The target rapidly blinks in and out of existance, intangible for brief moments just long enough for an attack to pass through. Physical attacks miss 50% of the time, rolled seperate from attack. This doesn't really help when sneaking, however, and while area attacks are still affected, very prolonged attacks may ignore it.
Moderate: [Translucent] The target is barely visible. Attacks rolled under 50% of the attacker's possible roll miss automatically. The Translucent character's anti-detection roll results are raised to 150% (a roll result of 60 becomes 90).
Acute: [Ethereal] The target is basically a shimmering outline. Attacks rolled under 75% of the attacker's possible roll miss automatically. The Ethereal character's anti-detection roll results are raised to 175% (a roll result of 60 becomes 105).
Acute (Alt): [Vanish] The physical form of the target is put into a state of phase, making it impossible to strike them physically, though they can 'pop out' to attack themselves. This however leaves a fragment of the character's soul in place as a proxy, which makes it very easy to strike them with magic. Attacking, moving, or being struck negates, and lacking souls, this version cannot apply to robots. Outside of battle the target cannot be located without magic however. They literally aren't there.
Chronic: [Invisible] The target is completely invisible, requiring a crit or divine to hit without special circumstances. The Invisible character's anti-detection roll results are raised to 200% (a roll result of 60 becomes 120).
Terminal: [Ghost] The ultimate cloaked state, a Ghosted character puts off no light or sound whatsoever, narrowing the circumstances required to find or harm them.
Special: At double the cost when creating a skill or item that causes an Invisible effect, the effect can be made to apply to an additional sense, magic detection, or all nonstandard, mundane Sight types (thermal, sonar, ect). This cannot apply to Vanish.


Family: Illusion
Description: The character is granted some sort of persistant illusion effect that makes it difficult to tell what they're actually doing or react properly to avoid it. This is a versatile skill that ranges from subtle to extravagent, as any illusionist skill.
In most cases, the cast roll of the Illusion determines the DC to see through it. Once seen through, it is useless against that enemy unless the illusioned character spends a round 'shuffling' with his illusions to confuse the enemy.
Customs Friendly: No
Affects: Biological, Robot
Mild: [Asura] Extra, illusionary arms sprout from the character and preform seemingly random actions. An Asura, when physically attacking, forces a Perception check against the illusion's DC. If it is passed, the attack is rolled normally. Otherwise, the target responds to the wrong arms and gets no defense roll unless they have a particularly dynamic dodging method (Block is right out, and a ranged attack is nearly impossible to avoid this way).
Mild (Alt): [Mage Asura] Illusionary arms sprout from the character and preform random somatic incantations. A magic lore check that falls below the illusion's DC will mis-identify the spell and must react accordingly.
Moderate: [Afterimage] A favorite of ridiculously fast martial artists, this buff causes the character to randomly leave behind brief illusions of him/herself as s/he moves. An enemy must pass perception when Reacting (Countering, taking attacks of opporunity, etc) to the character's movements, or become confused by the copy long enough to fail it. Meanwhile, the buffed character's reactions gain a roll bonus equal to one fourth the illusion's DC.
Acute: [Doppleganger] Creates a copy of the targetted character that draws enemy fire, counting as a seperate target that can't actually be damaged. The doppleganger moves enough to appear realistic, but if its 'other' makes too dramatic an action it may be obvious which is the fake.
Chronic: [Dopplebomb] An insidious version of the Doppleganger status, this illusion is less illusionary than usual. If struck, it will explode, dealing an effect immediately to the one foolish enough to hit it or stand nearby.
Terminal: [Simulacrum] Creates a perfect illusionary copy of whatever the creater likes, usually an ally. The simulacrum is much like a doppleganger, but has free motion and is 'smart', always taking actions that match those of its counterpart to keep the enemy off balance. It will draw fire as a Doppleganger, while also granting the Asura and Mage Asura effects listed above and 'shuffling' itself every other round. It can also be a bomb at the caster's discretion.
