The bubble deflect all high velocity projectiles, bioic attacks, fire, blasts, etc. Beings can move in and out of the bubble freely (friendly and enemy). If players attempt to stick their gun barrels out of the bubble and shoot, they take a -4 to shooting attacks becasue the bubble vibrates a bit and vision is slightly obscured.

Biotic Shielding

Power Points: 1/section
Range: Smarts

Trappings: Your create a tangible wall of biotic energy.

Biotic Shield creates a solid, immobile wall to protect the user against attack or to entrap an opponent. The Biotic Shield has a Toughness of 10. Every Power Point spent creates a 1” wide section of wall. The wall is a thin transparent solid barrier. (If you’re using a gridded mat to play, draw the barrier between the squares directly along the grid-lines.) The exact placement of each section is defined by the caster, but each section must be connected to at least one other section after the first. When the power expires or a section is broken, it dissipates. Each section of the barrier may be destroyed by an attack that equals its Toughness of 10. Physical walls are treated exactly like inanimate objects; they are considered to have a Parry of 2 (ranged attacks work as normal), but raises on the attack roll do not grant bonus damage nor do damage dice Ace.

Targets within a medium burst template have their pace halved. They must pass a Spirit check or are lifted a few feet off the ground and held in place.  With a raise, their armor is reduced by 2. Each round, a bound target will move 2 squares clockwise around the singularity and can attempt an additional spirit check to break free but their pace is still halved.  Anyone in the burst at the start of their turn must pass a Spirit check or are held. While held in the singularity, targets take a -2 to all Agility and Strength based skill checks.
