How to make: Demonic Repulsion Field

Postby ashuramarsh » Sat Sep 29, 2012 1:39 pm

HI,

I have a build question. I am making a mystic character who owns an HQ.The house is surrounded by a field that repulses evil demons. Like the field from the Spiderwyck movie repulsing the goblins.

It could act something like a Magic Circle protection from evil spell.

Thanks for any help.

There are a number of ways to do it depending on how exactly you envision the field working. Move Object works for a field that "pushes" the demons away, Affliction [Compelled] works for making them stay away subtly (they can't bring themselves to advance or they turn away subconsciously, ect...), Create can work if the field is more like a "solid" barrier, or Concealment can work if the field makes it so demons can't see the building. Does any of those sound like what you want?

Also connected to the effects Murkglow mentioned you could add the Enviroment effect of Impede Movement as a way of keeping the demons at bay. If they are getting close to your HQ then they would be feeling the holy pressure of your field (or whatever discrpitor) and be slowed down. Also if you want to take it one step further in your envirmoent, you can add (Favored Foe-Demons) with an effects others so other players can better deal with the weakened demons.

Demonic Repulsion [30 pp]
You create an invisible forcefield that prevents entry to and provides nigh-impregnable protection from demons. No demon can cross it in any form or dimension and most effects or attacks they employ are stopped cold. The field does not protect from perception attacks (you can still see and be affected by them through it) or a clever demon attacking indirectly (i.e. stones thrown by demons are not demons themselves)
Create 10 (Subtle 2, Sustained, Affects Insubstantial 2, Dimensional 3, limited: only vs demons), Immunity 10 (Demonic Descriptor, sustained, affects only others, linked to the Create effect)




This is the ultimate protection from demons for a reasonable price. Basically an invisible barrier that is only solid against demons. It prevents them from entering because it's solid (even against incorporeal or teleporting demons) and a creature can't move inside a solid object and it is also invulnerable to demon attacks so demons can't blow it up or claw it to bits. A demon can still use effects that don't require line-of-effect through the barrier, or employ ranged attacks that aren't demonic -throwing stones, directing nondemonic minions against you or shooting at you with a machinegun- so the protection is not absolute.

Of course, no protection is absolute.

Area (Self Burst) Move Object, with a "restricted to demons" flaw.

Thats how i would do it.

That's problematic because it's an instantaneous effect, allows a resistance check and it only pushes back a demon if they get within 30 feet of you. Most demons could harm people just fine from far further away. Many even have a reach longer than 30 feet simply because they're that large (or they got tentacles - YMMV)

Except that Area allows you to extend the area, it can be put on an entire building to encompass the entire building & it can have the reaction extra.

Not the cheapest way to build it, but it depends on what affect you are trying to get & how many points you want to spend. Unfortunately, not having seen the above mentioned "Spiderwyck movie" i'm unfortunately without a reference point to work from. :D
