Armoury Reloaded 'Combat Hacks'

  • Work in Progress, essentially each shot, unless specified, hits a random location on the target's body
    Hit Locations
  • When a mage uses mage sight, he opens his third eye and sees everything for what it truly is as the images he see are permanently burned into his mind. Whenever he thinks about the event, it appears vivid and fresh in his mind. Particularly vulgar and disturbing images may require wisdom degeneration and/or derangement rolls.
