You possess supernaturally heightened senses.
Used by Lanie, Created by dae_kianna.
(This Effect has no explicit visibility requirement.)

You look around, highly alert, and your nose wiggles with each sniff as you take in a plethora of sensory information.


You gain the following benefits at all times.

Your senses are enhanced in the following way.

  • Smell: Your nose is highly sensitive and can differentiate between scents the way a dog can, as well as recognize things you have smelled before.
  • Hearing: You may hear sounds of sub- and hyper-sonic frequencies, allowing you to hear tiny things (mice, insects, etc) better, and pick up on the vibrations of massive things (earthquakes, atmospheric disruptions, etc) long before others.
