Unless they have come out with a update for handling a Null-Pariah ( not a regular Null but one with the actual Pariah gene like the cullexis assasins have that actually causes physical issues for psykers and regular humans whenever they get in close contact ) Like some of the rules options say a Null can increase their power level ( effectively taking what would be a psy rating but instead is a Null rating of 1-6 ) indicating their level of potency for their field of effects etc…BUT…here is my question
What do you think of the idea of taking the abilities of Power Well and Discipline focus as granting some measure of effect to the effects of a pariahs disruption field of influence ( in essence making its effects harder to shrug off for psykers and mundanes as well as showing a actual effort by the Pariah to enhance their natural abilties ( much as their dimetric opposites psykers do to hone their natural talents ) And..if so…how would you work their benefits?
Power Well grants a +1 to manifest scores
Discipline focus grants a +2 to the field of focus on manifest scores
Both of those are for regular psykers..but how would you represent that same level of benefit to a Pariah? It only makes sense that a character put some XP/time and effort into honing their natural abilties…but there are ( to my knowledge ) no ways to do so aside from taking optional rules for nulls upping their null rating same as a psyker can with expenditure of XP..however…a true Pariah..has a more potent form of the null field and stronger effects as a standard…Thoughts anyone?
( reason is im looking to have an NPC go toe to toe with a unbound daemonhost..the NPC is to be a Pariah..im looking for ways to have the NPC be able to totally nullify the hosts psy abilties ( a unbound daemonhost has a psy rating of 8 but even with the regular optional rules…a null cant get higher than rank 6 null…soo…..if i allowed for the potential of a pariah using a version of power well and./or discipline focus then the NPC could achieve rank 8 and cancel out everything psy the daemonhost could try and pull….then close in for hand-hand and cause some real hurt…Daemonhosts can see the pariah as a black-hole like mass as their disruption field is such that it actually mimics a black holes suction of all things including light into it…in the form of psy energy with a pariah…the bane of a daemons existence if it closes completely and manages to destroy the host body…while in the immediate area of effect….stands to reason then that game mechanics/dynamics would lend to that daemons essence being utterly destroyed at the center of that well of darkness that is the pariahs psy killing field )
