Bo Perkins' telekinetic abilities have finally grown strong enough that he is able to lift himself off the ground and attain human flight, although doing so is incredibly taxing on his brain.


Exert your Mind and spend a Free Action to activate.

You may levitate off the ground at two times your normal walking speed. The effect lasts for the next hour, though you may choose to end it at will.

While in the air, your move speed and encumbrance are based on your rating in Mind instead of your Brawn and Dexterity.

While this Effect is active, you are at -2 dice to all Actions and cannot Concentrate.

After this Effect ends, you cannot move quicker than a walk for one minute and suffer a -1 dice penalty for an hour.

  • Your free Movement while levitating is now 5 + (5 x Mind) feet per round without incurring a dice penalty. You may extend your Movement by up to 20 extra feet, taking a -1 dice penalty for every 5 extra feet you travel.
  • Any penalties to dice or movement, including from Encumbrance, are applied as normal. If your movement is reduced to 0 due to encumbrance, you will begin to sink down to the ground.
  • You may activate this Effect while in midair, allowing you to slow and survive any free fall.

  • If a character has a dice pool reduced to 0, they cannot attempt that action.
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

  • Quick Fingers: Drawing your weapon is a Free Action as long as it is on your person. You may reload as a Free Action.

  • Excess keyhole damage does not reapply the weapon's damage bonus and is affected by Armor as normal. The secondary target may React to the tumbled bullet if they have a Gift which lets them do so.
  • Reminder: Bonus Damage stacks with Weapon Damage, but does not stack with any other Bonus Damage. Instead, the highest Bonus Damage is used.

You learn all the following information about your target:

  • You may follow the target's trail, no matter where or how they have traveled, so long as the trail is less than a day old.
