Resistance Test



Encounter Conditions


All encounters take the following format:

Text reading "Resistance Test - Load Complete" scrolls across your vision, as though projected against the background of your surroundings. As you admire the technical wizardry, your muscles begin to seize, positioning you as though you were held by an invisible assailant.

<Various messages below>

And then, without No Pain:
Fighting against yourself was agonizing. You can still feel your muscles, tendons, and bones buckling under the pressure.

And then, with No Pain:
Fighting against yourself was bizarre. You could feel the pressure on muscle and bone, but not the pain.

It's probably for the best.

You've earned some XP in Strength

The message and XP gained depends on the number of unique (different) Melee techniques in your deck:

Techniques Message XP
0-1 You fight back valiantly, but ultimately unsuccessfully. Eventually the letters in the background change to "Test Complete - Reloading" and the hold disappears. 1 XP
2 2 XP
3 You start to move, pulling all the tricks out of your arsenal. Eventually, you confuse the test, leaving it to cause random muscle seizures. The text eventually changes to "Test Complete - Reloading." 3 XP
4 4 XP
5-7 You fight back swiftly, with the confidence of skill. It's not pleasant, but the letters eventually change over to "Test Aborting - Error 23," which you're pretty sure means you won. 5 XP
8-12 6 XP
13-19 You fight back with careful movements and precise control. It's not pleasant, but you know your body better than the thing on your head. The text eventually switches to "Test Aborting - Error 16," which you're confident means you pounded it into the ground. 7 XP
20-28 8 XP
29-39 Same as above? 9 XP
40-52 Same as above? 10 XP
53-etc. Same as above? 11 XP

If you have No Pain, you gain +3 XP.
