Inquisition To find what is not there

1
The power to learn details about others.
Used by Athena Rush, Created by Riley.
(During Effect activation, you are obviously interacting with the target. You must actively and obviously be using a reflective surface equal or greater to a mirror.)

Part of the void's makeup consists of collective unconscious memories of those both living and dead. It is a dangerous place to travel and Void Travellers such as Athena require a method or focus to safely sift through it. In Athenas case, she has taken to using mirrors as the medium as to not threaten her immediate person.

However, occasionally, she oversteps her reach- to which the void demons and deities will tend to punish severely.


Exert your Mind and spend a minute to activate. Select a Sapient target or a Creature within 20 feet. You may select a target at any range if you use up Blood of the target. You must actively and obviously use a reflective surface equal or greater to a mirror to activate this Effect. You cannot investigate the same target more than once per hour. Make a Trauma roll when you activate this Effect. At the end of your investigation, roll Intellect + Science at Difficulty 6.

You learn a single specific piece of information, chosen from the following list, about your target:

  • You determine any medical or physiological issues they have, as well as their species and a general overview of their biology.
  • 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.

The quality and specificity of information gained depends on your Outcome.

  • Tracker You are not made instantly aware of where they have been in the past 24 hours; you must follow their trail. You may "happen upon" any trail they have made in the past 24 hours.
  • 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.

Exert your Mind and spend an Action to trap a region of any shape that contains your current location and fits entirely within 20 feet. This trap lasts until triggered or disarmed. Roll Intellect + Influence at Difficulty 6.

The trap looks like a 1 inch (min) peace symbol engraved/embossed. Only those who have seen this trap before can identify it as a trap. Anyone who is aware of the trap may intuitively avoid or destroy it.

When setting the trap, specify the condition under which it will trigger. The trap can trigger against a target in the trapped region. Affected targets may resist by rolling Mind at Difficulty 8. If they are incapacitated or unconscious, they fail automatically and their Outcome is 0.

When the trap is triggered, the target takes Mind damage equal to the Contested Outcome. If you deal at least 3 Mind damage, the target will gain Pacifism as a Trauma. This Trauma may be removed by Effects or mundane therapy, as normal. Affected targets are aware that they are being attacked and can generally tell who did it.

Possession of this Power grants the following Trauma at all times: Pacifism: You are morally against causing Injury to anyone and anything, except in defense.

  • Mundane animals have a Mind score of 1 or 2 at the GM’s discretion.
  • Anyone who witnesses you place the trap learns about this type of trap and can avoid it at will.
  • 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 trap's triggering condition, once set, is final. The trap cannot be manually triggered or made to fire on a selected target at will.

You phase out of reality for 4 Rounds. During this time, you cannot perceive or affect the outside world or take any Actions. You cannot move. Nothing can interact with you in any way.

Exert your Mind and spend at least one Action. Select a Sapient target within 20 feet. Your target cannot be engaged in Combat. Communicate a command to your target. Roll Charisma + Influence at Difficulty 6. The target may resist by rolling Mind at Difficulty 7.

If the contested Outcome is positive, your target will be compelled to follow your command to their best understanding of the letter and spirit of the command until they have completed it or for your Outcome in minutes. You cannot issue another suggestion to the target until 10 minutes after they have completed the first command or 10 minutes after a failure.

The target is unaware that they are under supernatural influence and feel they are acting of their own free will. If you fail, they realize that you were attempting to influence them supernaturally with your command.

Your command can be an order to take an immediate Action. You cannot order a target to "do nothing," and they are free to take other Actions as they fulfill your request. Your command cannot be obviously self-destructive. The Effect ends if following your command would cause a target to cross one of their Limits in a way that would necessitate a Trauma roll.

  • The target must be able to understand you and must receive your communication for the suggestion to work.
  • Allowed Commands
    • Direct Order: The target must take an immediate action (e.g. “Sit down,” "run away," or "tell me your password.")
