Watchman's Way See through the Night Sun's eye.

The power to learn new information about the area you are in.
Used by Angelo D. Thomas, Created by Lunanatio.
(During Effect activation, you are obviously investigating the area. )

You enter a meditative state as you drift off to sleep. In your dreams you find yourself in a nearby locale, and may move imperceptibly in both time and space to a limited degree.

While you are in this space, your surroundings are misty and ethereal, and may behave in a dreamlike, disjointed manner. However, you are able to perceive things your waking senses could not. With some creative interpretation, you can use this information to discern who and what has travelled through this area and when, potentially picking up useful trails or clues. While this is the gift's primary function, it is also as a side effect particularly sensitive to supernatural or alien energies or effects, allowing you to potentially perceive them.

While you dream, your material body behaves exactly as it would during mundane sleep. You are exactly as vulnerable as usual and may be woken by any especially loud sound or contact.

Exert your Mind and spend a half hour. Investigate an area with a radius of up to 500 feet This Effect cannot be used unless you are asleep. At the end of your investigation, roll Perception + Investigation at Difficulty 6.

You learn the following information about the area:

  • You can locate the source of any Alien energy or the presence of any Alien effects on the area. Specific information about the function of these effects beyond their general type is not forthcoming.
  • You learn how heavily trafficked the area is, what sorts of Animate beings have moved through the area and when.
The quality and specificity of information gained depends on your Outcome.

You cannot investigate the same area more than once per day.

  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.
  • Your target must be within line of sight, or within range of another sense if more fitting for the Gift's flavor.

The trap looks like a tripwire, a pressure plate, or a hidden switch. Only those who have seen this trap before can identify it as a trap. Anyone who is aware of the trap may intuitively avoid, trigger, or destroy it.

Any Living target that enters the chosen region will trigger the trap. The target may contest by rolling Body, Difficulty 6.

The target suffers a -3 dice penalty for the next hour or until the Injury is healed. This dice penalty does not stack multiple times on the same target.

Instead of dealing Damage all at once, the Injury caused by this Power starts at Severity 1 and worsens at the rate of one level per Round until it reaches the Severity it would have otherwise been.

  • "Material Armor" includes armor from equipment but not Armor from Mythic Brawn, barrier, or mystical armor.
  • Multiple traps cannot be placed in the exact same location or be triggered by the same single Action. Nor can one trap triggering cause another to trigger.
  • Trap can only be spotted by someone who has witnessed this particular trap before, has been informed, or possesses relevant supernatural abilities. They must achieve an Outcome of 4 or higher on a Perception + Alertness roll to do so.
  • The area you choose where the trap can be triggered may be just a single location, similar to a tripwire or a pressure plate, or it can be a proximity trigger which hits anyone who comes within the specified range of the trap. This is defined by you when you place the trap and cannot be changed once the trap is placed.
