Blonde spiky hair? Transforming your body? Obtaining divine power? Who needs that? A truly skilled warrior can make do with just their natural body and the skill they’ve built up over the years. That’s your philosophy. By pushing your natural power to its limits, you awaken the power you’ve hidden within yourself without the need for such a dramatic change.
This Enhancement Power cannot be used alongside an Alternate Form or Legendary Form.
A Welcome Challenge. While your base Tier of Power is 5+, increase the Attribute Modifier Bonuses (AG/FO/SP) of this Transformation by +2(T) and increase the Attribute Modifier Bonuses (TE/IN) of this Transformation by +1(T).
At the start of your turn, you may select one opponent who has either transformed into an Alternate Form, a Legendary Form or is at least +1 Tier of Power higher than you – that opponent becomes your Target until the start of your next turn. You have Superiority on all Combat Rolls against your Target and you may increase the Damage Category of all Attacking Maneuvers made against that target by +1 (Standard becomes Direct, Direct becomes Lethal).
While you are in this Transformation, increase the amount of Life Points and/or Ki Points you restore through Surge Maneuvers by +5(T). When you first use the Transformation Maneuver to enter the Awoken Enhancement Power in a Combat Encounter, immediately activate a Healing Surge and a Power Surge (in that order) as a pair of Out-of-Sequence Actions.
A Show of Skill. Once per Combat Round, if you would use a Signature Technique, it gains +1 free Energy Charge for each stack of a Manifested Power you currently have access to (if you have multiple Manifested Powers, select the Manifested Power with the highest number of stacks).
Whenever you make a Basic Attack, it gains +1 suitable Advantage as if it was a Signature Technique. For example, a Physical Basic Attack could gain any Martial Arts-suitable Advantage and a Beam Basic Attack could gain the Potent Beam Advantage.
A Chronicle of Growth. You may use another Enhancement Power in conjunction with Awoken as if Awoken was an Alternate or Legendary Form. Apply the Stacking Strength rules as usual. If you are using the Tremendous Power Variant Rule, you instead may ignore the additional Stress Test Requirement increase and Ki Point Cost while you are using only one other Enhancement Power in conjunction with Awoken.
If your base Tier of Power is 6+, when transforming into this Enhancement Power or by spending One Action during your turn, you may become Further Awoken until the end of the Combat Encounter or until you leave this Transformation. While Further Awoken:
You may stop being Further Awoken as an Instant Action during your Turn.
