Circumstances

Respected Expert: Police You are highly respected and influential within a given field or industry. Just about anyone in _____ will know of you and respect your status and ability within that field. Social rolls made against anyone in your chosen field receive +2 dice.
Point of Contact: Cops You know someone in a specific industry or area of influence, and can lean on them for assistance. Once per Contract, and once per Downtime, you may call in a favor from _____. Your contact is not brainwashed or supernaturally compelled, and they may refuse to do things which are unreasonable or absurd. You may attempt to call in additional favors beyond the first one, but these are not guaranteed, and over-use of your contact may cause you to lose them, as well as create potential Loose Ends.

Conditions

From Assets and Liabilities
Fragile You're emotionally fragile, and very likely to be mentally and emotionally scarred by your experiences. You have four Limits, instead of the usual three.

Loose Ends

Powers

If you are watching the individual using this power, you can see that he is actively holding a magnifying glass in his hand, sometimes bringing it up to his eye, but it seems that even while holding it, it doesn't look like he is doing much with it. You can see the person looking around, even at walls, and still somehow collecting information beyond it.


Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate. You must actively and obviously use A Magnifying Glass to activate this Effect.

You may perceive things within 50 feet of you as though there were no walls or obstacles blocking your view for the next five minutes. You must maintain Concentration to keep up the effect.

Any Perception rolls made through obstacles are rolled at +1 Difficulty.

  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

The Person is not breathing, eating, drinking, or even sleeping. Cold to the touch as well...


You gain the following benefits at all times.

You are permanently and visibly transformed: With Spectral Features. You are considered to be a Sapient, Non-Living being when targeted..

Your Injuries no longer degrade with time.

Upon viewing this power, you can see that an object would suddenly start to fly up in the air, perhaps a mug, or a knife. Or even a Gun. And if you're on the wrong end of it, you can expect it be flying at you...


You gain the following benefits at all times. You must actively and obviously be using Any kind of ring over 5000$ to gain the benefits of this Effect.

You can interact with things that are within 75 feet without needing to physically touch them or be near them. Any rolls made for Actions taken in this way use a Mental Strength of 1 in place of your Brawn rating, a Mental Agility of 4 in place of your Dexterity, and otherwise use your own Attributes and Abilities.

Telekinetic actions have the following restrictions and behaviors:

  • Reactions: You cannot use a Reaction telekinetically.
  • Multiple Items: You can only interact with one thing or take one action at a time.
  • Line of Sight: You must be able to visually observe anything you interact with, and any actions that you are taking will end if their target moves out of sight.
  • Unarmed Combat: You cannot deal damage through unarmed combat or thrown objects with this Effect, though you may still grapple with targets.
  • Weapons: You are able to effectively wield weapons with this Effect.
  • Fine Tools: You are otherwise limited to actions that a normal human could do with their bare hands.
  • Maintaining Focus: You must maintain Concentration while taking Actions in this way. If you are Injured or interrupted, you must roll Mind at Difficulty 9 to maintain Concentration. If you fail, you cannot engage in telekinetic actions for the next 6 - Intellect rounds.

  • Any telekinetic actions which interact with Animate targets may require contested rolls at GMs discretion.

If you were really attuned to people watching, you could notice this person going without

Air: Forever!
Water: Forever!
Food: Forever
Sleep: Forever

What a weirdo!

Or they went to college...


You gain the following benefits at all times.

You no longer require any food, water, sleep, or air in order to survive.

Consumables

3

Upon being harmed to an extent, you could see the user pulling out a small red vial and drinking it down. With their hand placed on you, over the course of the next minute, you can feel the effects of your natural regeneration happening at a fast rate. But perhaps you shouldn't keep your eyes open...


Use up this Small Red Vial and spend 1 minute to activate. Select a Living target within arm's reach. Your target must also Exert their Mind to activate this Effect. Choose a specific Injury on your target that has not yet been treated with this Effect and roll Intellect + Investigation at Difficulty 6.

If you succeed, the Injury is reduced in Severity by your Outcome. If you reduce its Severity to 0, the Injury is fully healed. Otherwise, it is partially healed and will heal the rest of the way at its natural rate.

This counts as a successful Makeshift Stabilization if the Injury was not already Stabilized; any Battle Scars caused by the Injury will remain.

Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation will almost certainly be disturbed to see Upon seeing the user drink the vial, The hand of the person suddenly turns into this dim light, But it soon evolves into a orb, An orb with many eyes and contortions. As if a Bibically Accurate Angel was suddenly in front of you.

  • When narrating disturbing content, be cognizant of your group's tone and accommodating to those who would like to "fast forward" through the description.
  • This consumable is destroyed when used and cannot be used again.
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

Trophies

Trophies are special objects and equipment.
