Abilities/Disabilities List

This is a list of all currently available abilities and disabilities in their basic/dictionary form, with cost (exclusive of any magic tax).

"Recovery 10m" indicates that 10 minutes of rest in a non-hostile setting is required to regain the use of the ability. If you have multiple copies of one ability, you must rest for each copy separately; likewise, you cannot rest for two different abilities at once. "Recovery overnight" means that the ability is normally usable again only after a period of restful sleep (>6hrs).
It is a good idea to notify a GM when you begin to rest!

[I] indicates that an ability/disability must apply to a character item. Other abilities can be bought as character innate powers, but applying it to a suitable phys-repped character item will incur a lower magic tax.

#3 indicates the ability may be bought a maximum of 3 times. A single # means the ability may be bought an unlimited number of times. If neither is shown, the ability may be bought only once. Prerequisites are given in parentheses - e.g. (2xRage). Multiple copies are called "innates" of the ability (innate copies).
