In a battle, a Mordurmer Agent will employ various pieces of equipment, cyphers and maybe even a powerful artifact to eliminate its target. If working together with a partner, the two can take a single action at one level higher and doubling the potency of whatever they are trying to accomplish. For example, if a pair of Mordurmer Agents work together to attack a single target, the level of the attack would be a level seven, dealing 14 damage. This makes for a truly dangerous encounter as befits such a notorious organization as the Mordurmer. In addition to employing smoke bombs, poison and the like, a Mordurmer Agent will usually have a single, unique power that is not shared by his/her partner.
Some examples of these powers might include:
- Able to set objects on fire dealing 6 points of heat damage a round.
- Can levitate up to 300lb of material as an action.
- Able to move with blinding speed and gain an asset on all Speed related tasks.
- Wields a masterpiece weapon with unique abilities.
- Able to produce sharp quills from his/her body that acts both as armor and as an offensive weapon.
Usually silent and ominous, these men and women are driven to complete their mission at all costs and cannot be reasoned with. Their life is consumed with their current objective at all times.
