Semblance is the active manifestation of the Character’s soul. Every Huntsman and Huntress has a Semblance that is unique to them. Characters first describe how they want to use their Semblance, and the desired effect is assigned a difficulty threshold by the GM based on complexity of the task, number of affected targets and area of effect. If the Character wants to attempt the given roll, they make an Active Aura Check.
Active Aura checks begin as a standalone WIL check. If WIL is sufficient to activate the ability selected, then the ability is used and no aura is consumed. If the stand alone WIL check is not sufficient, Aura is reduced by 1 and the secondary attribute is added to the total. If the new total surpasses the abilities’ requirement, then the Semblances is successfully used. If the new total is not sufficient, the Semblance attempt fails and nothing happens.
Semblances last 1 turn, plus one bonus turn for every 5 over the abilities required check.
The following are common Semblances that are straight forward and easily adapted to most character concepts. This is not a list of every Semblance, these are simply suggestions. Semblances can be literally anything, so long as it follows a singular concept. Anything that reasonably falls within that Semblance’s realm can be attempted with an Aura check.
