Memory Alteration

From Open Legend Wiki

Bane Information

Duration: Instantaneous

Invocation Time: 1 Major Action

Power Level: 5, 6, 8

Attack Attributes:

  • Influence


  • Influence vs. Resolve

Warping or controlling the mind is one of the most dreaded powers of enchanters, causing powerful heroes to forget their homes, families, and quests. Memory alteration is often inflicted by mad scientists, necromancers, enchanters, and chronomancers.

You alter the target's memories to an extent based on the power level of the bane.

  • Power Level 5 - You temporarily modify a minor aspect of the target's memory. The target automatically regains the lost memory and realizes their confusion 1 hour later.
  • Power Level 6 - You permanently erase or alter the last 5 minutes of the target's memory. The target does not know what happened during this time outside of the memories you feed them (including having seen you, if they did). Multiple uses of this bane progressively erase consecutive 5 minute increments.
  • Power Level 8 - Instead of the immediate past, you can erase or alter memories from any time. The memory alteration bane can only be inflicted via a bane attack. Damaging attacks that trigger banes cannot trigger this bane. This bane confers no special ability to know about a target's memory. The invoker must be aware of the memory either from rumor, personal knowledge, prescience, or other means. Special:
    When you target an enemy with this bane and your action roll fails to beat the target's Resolve defense, the target is immune to further invocations of this bane from you for the next 24 hours. This bane is from the core rules, and can be found here on the Main Website
