Shoot Skill Description

Shoot is the skill for ranged combat, either using powers or ranged weapons. Shoot attacks are powerful, but defenses weak; the emphasis is on getting the enemy down before he can hurt you.

Shoot skill defaults to Reflexes and an outcome matching this attribute on a stunt directed against Shoot will often result in a Setback.

Use in Action

Shooting is used mainly in combat, but sometimes you can do stunts based on your precision and reactions; sports photography and some kinds of senor operations can use this skill. You know how to care for your weapons and keep them in prime condition, including simple modifications, but you are not a full-fledged weaponsmith, that takes the Create skill.

Knowledge

You know the make and abilities of the ranged weapons of your time. You know the capabilities of ranged weapons, and what kind of weapon and ammunition to use against each target and in every circumstance. You can judge the Toughness of a target with fair accuracy. You know about famous shootists of your era, both sportsmen and professionals on either side of the law. This includes such details as what signature weapons they use and preferred tactics and schticks. You can identify the skill of a shooter by examining his handiwork; if the shootist is famous you might identify his personal style, tough this is not evidence, just a hunch.

Contacts

You know gunsmiths (or bowyers and fletchers) and can find someone to sell you lethal hardware almost everywhere, tough you might have to settle for local varieties in out-of-the-way locations. You know shootists in general, but especially in the same line of work as yourself and your opposition; if you are a soldier you know soldiers from different factions, if you are police you know police sharpshooters and criminal hitmen, if you are a ranger, hunter, or sportsman you know other civilian shootists. Some of these people are bitter rivals, but you all respect each others abilities. You can walk into a shooting range almost anywhere and make some local contacts. You also know clients, protegees, and mission specialists you have worked with, but these tend to be acquaintances only.

Perception

You recognize ranged weapons even when hidden. You recognize skilled shooters, even when they're not tooting their weapons. You recognize fields of fire and advantageous firing positions.

Stunts

List of specific stunts the skill can be used for, and rules for each using the standard power format.

Aim

Basic Action

Spend an action aiming at a specific target. If you attack that target as your next action, not having spent any shots in between, and as long as the target stays in the same spot, you get a +3 bonus on your Shoot skill.

Covering Fire

Trigger Action (Defense)

When you see someone attacking you or another or performing an action, shoot in their general direction to keep their heads down and disrupt their action. The difficulty of their action now becomes your Shoot skill +3 if it was otherwise less than that.

If you are using a full-auto weapon, you can impair the actions of all creatures in an area equal to your Mind in diameter simultaneously, but only for the current shot.

Covering fire is not effective against an opponent under hard or better cover.

Normal Ranged Attack

Basic Action

Make a Shoot roll opposed by the target's Dodge. On a success, you hit, adding the Outcome to the damage of the weapon.

Photography

Inherent

While photographic apparatus and technology is covered by Create, actual action photography is covered by Shoot, providing gun-tooting characters something to do in non-action scenarios. To make a photo shoot in action is very much like taking a lethal shot, and most schticks can be used normally. To make a moving and insightful shot of some other aspect of a character requires a Shoot against whatever skill the shot is to manifest—often Charm or Impress. The impact of a successful photograph is decided by the skill of the person being photographed.

Schticks

Schticks are mundane specializations.

Shoot Schticks

Shoot schticks are made for use with ranged weapons. Any mention of particular types of ranged weapons in schtick descriptions, such as guns or bows, is flavor.

Artist's Cross-hairs

Inherent

You are not only an expert shootist, you are an artistic one. You can express moods and convey messages through your shots—generally negative ones. This works with both weapons and image recording devices. You can use Shoot as if it was the Charm or Impress skills, but the effect is not immediate, the result of the shot must be inspected for this to become evident. Besides psychotic slayers, this skill is also highly useful to photographers, Photography stunts are routine to you and the photographs you take can use the Charm and Impress effects above—such Shoot checks are not routine.

Bag Full of Guns

Inherent Weapon

You are carrying way more firearms than sensibly possible. This involves some kind of pack; a violin case, large suitcase, duffer bag, instrument case, bulky trench coat, or a sexy fanny pack are all typical examples.

Any gun you could reasonably have had access too and one of which could fit in the bag is in the bag, even tough it is clearly impossible for them all to fit in there at once. Restricted, futuristic, or military weapons are only in the bag if they make a reasonable part of the story. Weapons not found there in a contemporary civilian setting include flamethrowers, rocket launchers, and lasers.

Both Guns Blazing

Trigger Action (Combo)

When using two ranged attacks, one in each hand, you can follow up each of your normal attacks with a Normal Ranged Attack from your second weapon on the same or a different target.

Carnival of Carnage

Trigger Action

Whenever an unnamed character is about to make an attack while in your sight, you may use Carnival of Carnage to shoot him.

Clean Shot

Basic Action

You can make clean, damaging shots even with light weapons. There is no such thing as a target that is too tough; if Clean Shot hits and the attack roll was greater than the target's Toughness (or whatever soak attribute is relevant for the attack you are using), it always inflicts a Hit. This supersedes (does not stack with) ordinary damage.

Cock 'n Carry

Stance, then Trigger Action

Start this stance by dramatically working the action of a gun at the beginning of a round. This produces a dramatic sound, a 'click', 'ka-chak', or the warm-up whine of energy weapon. It is even possible with a suitably dramatic spell or power. You cannot do this when surprised, and if you have surprise this noise ruins it, but does not give away your location.

You can now fire the gun once as a trigger action as a response to any hostile action. Thus, you kind of "save up" an attack for later use. Firing the readied weapon in any manner or for any reason ends the stance.

Cool Steel

Basic Action

Draw a cool, fresh gun that has not been used in this fight. The weapon can be one you carry or you can pick it up. The next Shoot attack with this weapon gets a +3 bonus. You can do other actions in between drawing this weapon and getting the attack bonus, but firing the weapon spoils it.

Dramatic Reload

Basic Action

Reload your gun dramatically and deliberately. Depending on how many bullets you reload, you get a bonus to your Shoot attacks until your bullets run out, after which you cannot shoot any more with this weapon until you use thic schtick again. All these effects end at the end of the round.

If you are loading your last clip you add +2 to the bonus - this is where the +0 category on the table is relevant. After you've fired these last shots you are out of ammo. If you somehow get your hands on more ammo, you still need to spend a Basic Action reloading before you can shoot again. This version of Dramatic Reload continues until the end of the fight.

You cannot load more than 20 bullets with this schtick.

Number of bullets Bonus
1 +3
2 +2
3-6 +1
7-20 +0
More No bonus; can be used to negate the need for further dramatic reload

Eagle Eye

Basic Action

You're particularly adept at firing at armored opponents and hitting the teeny-tiny bits of them that aren't armored. Your Shoot attacks that would normally be soaked by Toughness are instead soaked by Body.

This schtick never works with any kind of area attack, not does it work when attacking objects.

Fast Draw

Inherent

For the first round of any fight, your Initiative is a Closed Confident roll. Your first Basic Action for the round must involve the Shoot or Spot skills or you lose 3 shots instead of taking that action.

In addition, you can draw a gun instantly and at any time, even one that would normally take a Basic Action to draw.

Fields of Fire

Trigger Action (Focus)

When you are in combat, but at least 20 meters from the closest enemy, you can focus.

First Salvo

Inherent

Whenever you manage to score surprise, you can perform a Limit Break instead of the normal Basic Action, but the only skill you can use this with is Shoot.

Great Balls of Fire

Limit Break

There is always something in an urban combat scene that is ready to explode. You shot, and it blows up - taking everyone nearby with it. You cause an explosion that attacks everyone in a globe with a diameter equal to your Mind attribute in meters.

Damage is Body +2 impact damage.

Away from a high-tech urban setting, this schtick only works as the GM allows.

Gunnery

Inherent

You can use heavy guns and other artillery with full effect. People lacking training with such weapons can generally still fire them, but not reload, and on a snake eyes result the weapon misfires.

Gunsmith

Limit Break

You love to tinker with your guns, selecting ammunition for each target and otherwise using your gear to best effect. This adds +3 to the damage value of your gun against a specific type of target. Examples include unarmored people, people in a particular type of armor, or a particular type of monster. The benefit lasts until you load a different kind of ammo, carrying over from round to round.

You are also an expert at making bullets out of unorthodox materials. If you learn what a certain target is vulnerable to, you can quickly make bullets out of that material or using that weakness, if it makes any sense at all that you have the materials at hand.

Hail of Bullets

Inherent

You can use fanning, simultaneous multiple arrows on the string, or some other rapid-fire technique to shot a regular weapon as if it was an auto-fire weapon. A ranged weapon in your hands gains the Autofire and Great Blow abilities.

If you are using a a Reload or Slow weapon, you do not gain the abilities listed above, but can ignore these flaws.

Hail of Bullets can't be used with weapons that have the One-shot property.

Hold!

Trigger Action (Focusing)

When shooting from cover and not moving, you can focus.

Mercykiller

Finisher

You can decide how bad you want to hurt your target, choosing whether to inflict a Mortal Wound or not when you put them down.

Named Bullet

Limit Break

Make an attack against a single target that is a Confident Roll with a +3 bonus to Shoot. Target cannot use Resist powers; targets do not get to add their Mind to their Action to soak damage from Named Bullet.

Piercing Shot

Trigger Action

You can overpenetrate and hit two targets with the same shot, attacking a second target along the path of your bullet. Use this any time you inflict damage with a ranged attack. The extra target can stand either in front of or behind your first target. Hitting a target in front as a second target might seem odd, but the main thing is that you were concentrating on someone else and the second target is just a bonus.

Pinning Fire

Trigger Action

When someone near you moves in the open, you can use pinning fire on them. They then have the option not to move and remain still. If they elect to move despite your pinning fire, you make a normal ranged attack on them as part of this trigger action.

If using an auto-fire weapon, you pin all targets in an area with a diameter equal to your Reflexes in meters, but only for the current shot. Make a separate attack roll against each target that refuses to let itself be pinned.

Recon By Fire

Basic Action

You can make an attack against a target that is Sneaking even if you do not know exactly where they are. The target gets the usual defensive bonuses from Sneaking, but if you hit they are spotted. If you are using an area attack, you might spot all targets in an area with a diameter equal to your Reflexes in meters with one attack.

Slow Mo’ Vengeance

Trigger Action

Even as the bullets strike your body, you heedlessly keep going, putting every ounce of power into your gun.

Each time you take a Hit, you get to make a normal ranged attack.

Sniper

Basic Action

You can make a ranged attack and still Sneak as if you had not attacked, as long as you do not move, remain in cover and are at least 20 meters from all opponents. When using a weapon with Long range, you ignore all range penalties out to the effective range of the weapon - typically about half a kilometer for a rifle and to the horizon with heavier weapons.

Trick Shot

Trigger Action (Combo)

You are good at hitting small targets and precise locations. Think of this as a kind of limited telekinesis; if a task can be accomplished with a push or knock in the right direction, you can do the task as a gun stunt. Pushing buttons, switching levers, cutting ropes, cutting that trigger wire that disarms the bomb or sending messages by punching them out with bullets in plaster; all are simple tasks for you. Even if such a task would ordinarily use some other skill (such as the bomb wire, above), you can still use your Guns skill. But tasks requiring complex manipulation (unscrewing the lid on a barrel) is still out of your realm.

Whenever the difficulty of the shot is determined by the size of the target, halve the difficulty. You suffer no negative modifiers for stunts that require you to shoot at very small targets; you can shoot a pistol out of the hands of a gunman, or a thrown knife zipping through the air, for example.

You use this schtick as a combo, modifying other actions normally done by hand so you can do them at range. You can also use it to defend yourself and others against thrown weapons, using Shoot +3 instead of Dodge.

Walking Fire

Finisher

You can "walk" fire from one target to the next, attacking several adjacent targets one after the other.

Pick a target within two meters of the target you just defeated and attack that target as well. You can do this several times in succession as long as you take out each target. This is an exception to the rule that a trigger action cannot trigger another.

Zen Marksmanship

Basic Action

A true master need not see his target for his missiles to fly true.

You can ignore modifiers for visibility, obstructions et al. You can shoot in complete darkness, at invisible opponents, or through thick fog or nauseous fumes with no penalty, though you must know the target is there. You can bounce bullets, which lets you ignore cover by shooting around it if there is an open path to the target your bullets can use.

Shoot Powers

These are powers related to the Shoot skill. Blast uses the various forms to attack. In often incorporates elements of the move, transmute, or even summon techniques, but the effects are transitory and focused on combat. It generally does not involve any spiritual manifestations, focusing on using the form directly. It is common to use use an Implement to increase the damage of Shoot powers, but this is limited by Tradition in some settings. Blast uses the various forms to attack. In often incorporates elements of the move, transmute, or even summon techniques, but the effects are transitory and focused on combat. It generally does not involve any spiritual manifestations, focusing on using the form directly.

Shoot Air

Belomancy

Limit Break

As a preparation for using this power, you prepare a number of arrows, writing a possible answer to a question on each arrow. You must also add at least one blank arrow to the mix. When using this power, you ask a question and draw an arrow; it the power was successful, the arrow with the most relevant and correct answer will be drawn. If none of the answers were relevant or correct, you will draw a blank arrow.

Belomancy can only answer questions about things you will encounter within the next six hours, and can only give out information you would automatically notice during such encounters. Typical questions include "Which way to the dragon" or "what monster will I meet behind this door". Deeply analytical questions, such as "Who killed the duke", "what is the nature of life" or "should I get married" always draw a blank.

The difficulty of the check is either 5 + the number of arrows in the quiver, or the Shoot of whoever the divination is directed against. As an alternative, a single arrow can be tossed in the air, if it is a direction you want. This has a minimum difficulty of 10.

Cutting Wind

Inherent

Damage is Mind +2, or more if you are using an Implement. Make a separate attack roll against each target, including friends and bystanders.

Gust of Wind does concussion damage. Targets are pushed one meter away from you for each point of damage inflicted, and a flier is also moved the same distance downwards. Objects are not damaged directly, but might be blown about and will suffer normal damage if they crash into something. Flames are extinguished and open liquids blown into a spray.

Poison Cloud

Limit Break

You create a cloud of toxic air in a diameter equal to your Mind. The cloud is impenetrable to most senses, giving a penalty of -1 per meter of foul air in between. A living, breathing creature who spent any time during his current action in the cloud must make an opposed Impress check against your Shoot; on a failure he takes a hit. The cloud lasts for a scene unless dispelled or dispersed by strong wind. It is heavier than air, and will sink into lower-lying areas. You can move it your Mind meters as a basic action.

Turbulence

Basic Action

You create a buffeting wind shock that makes a flying target fall down. Make a Shoot check against Maneuver, on a success the target loses 3 shots and descents twice its's Move, possibly landing. On an outcome matching the target's Reflexes the target falls down, loses six shots, and cannot fly for the rest of the scene or until the target receives successful First Aid with a difficulty equal to your Shoot skill. It can still fly down to land safely, but can perform no Basic Actions or Limit Breaks until they are safely on the ground.

Fireball

Limit Break

You can blast everyone in a globe with a diameter equal to your Mind in meters.

Damage is Mind +2, or more if you are using an Implement. Make a separate attack roll against each target, including friends and bystanders.

Fireball does fire damage. This attack can cause nasty, lasting burns to any target that takes damage. Unless the target takes a basic action to put out the burns, it will take one additional hit at the end of the round.

Trigger Action

You can use this once per die roll someone else makes. The GM must tell you the numerical value of one of the character's attributes, skills, or current point totals. You choose which one.

If you choose another value, you can only analyze values lower than your Shoot, a higher value simply indicates the target is powerful.

Predict Randomness

Trigger Action

Whenever random chance can affect an outcome, you can use this action to predict the result. Since all die rolls in Action involve chance, this allows you to predict the outcome of most actions, just as they are about to occur. The usefulness of this is debatable, but it does allow you to decide whether to use other Trigger Actions triggered by the event you predicted the outcome for.

Cleromancy

Limit Break

To use this power, you need a set of lots or tokens, each associated with a spiritual entity, creature, or ideal. You also need one blank lot. To use the power, you randomly select one of them. Cleromancy will make you select the lot whose symbol most closely represents your answer. If none of the lots are relevant, a successful Cleromancy will yield the blank lot.

The two most common ways to use this power is to identify a person or group of people who most closely answers the question, or to find under what divinity or spirits influence the answer lies.

Anwulf the norse rune-priests casts the runes to determine the fate of his lost father, putting tokens for Thor, Odin, Heimdal, and Tyr in the jar. The GM knows his father is involved in an intrigue. Anwulf successfully reads the runes and finds that the relevant god is Heimdal. Had Loki been in the lot, this token would have been the most meaningful.

The difficulty of the check is either 5 + the number of lots drawn from, or the Recon of whoever the divination is directed against. whichever is higher. By adding more potential answers to the lot, you can gain more information but the divination becomes correspondingly harder.
