Force Wall is a mental mutation that allows the player to create a wall of at a location of their choosing.
Force Wall grants the "Force Wall" activated ability, which when used, will prompt the player to first select the starting point of their force wall. Any tile in the current zone can be chosen regardless of distance and contents, even tiles the player can't see or tiles that contain creatures or walls. After a tile has been chosen, the player is given the opportunity to "draw" the rest of the wall. This does not have to be in a straight line relative to the starting point and can be in any configuration the player desires, but the total tiles that the wall is comprised of cannot exceed 9. Comfirming one's selection will cause it to be filled in with forcefields.
The forcefields created by Force Wall are solid obstacles with 100 HP, 100 AV, and -10 DV. While this means they are not indestructible, they are incredibly difficult to penetrate with conventional weaponry. The player and creatures alike are unable to pass through the forcefields, unless they are phased or have an implanted . Additionally, enemies are unable to fire missile weapons and ranged mutations through the forcefields, while the player is able to.
The forcefields will persist for a mutation level based number of rounds before disappearing. If the forcefields are affected by normality or are crossed by a creature wearing an , they will instantly collapse and disappear, releasing an electrical discharge into a random adjacent tile that deals 1d61-6 (Avg: 3.5) damage.
