Catch the Eye

1
The power to catch and hold a target's attention.
Created by shady.
(When activating this Effect, it is obvious you are interacting with the target. )

All it takes is a flick of your hair and a bat of your eyelashes, and you’ve got their attention.


Exert your Mind and spend an Action. All Sapient, Living targets within 50 feet who can perceive you through sight are affected. Roll Charisma + Performance at Difficulty 6. All affected targets may resist by rolling Mind at Difficulty 6.

If you succeed, the targets will keep their full attention focused on you for contested Outcome in Rounds. They will automatically fail any rolls related to noticing anything other than you. If they cannot perceive you through sight for three Rounds, the Effect is broken. The Effect ends early if the target is Injured or violence occurs nearby.

This does not affect the target’s opinion of you or their mood, and they may take any Actions while affected (including attacking), as long as that action centers on you. Fascinated targets cannot Concentrate.

  • 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.

Edit: This power has been totally reconfigured. The two-step conditional is weird anyway, & fascinating things that don't eat w/ food is lame. Rather than be a highly leveraged pseudo stun lock, this power NOW serves a much more interesting role & relies on you doing what you do best - making people food.

As a Sabotaged item, it only works when people eat the meal - it can effect as many people as can sit down & eat that meal within 5ft. All of them stay fixated until the meal is complete & are at penalty for ALL your other effects while eating.

Even better, previously created fine meals could be stored for later use, so the 30 second cast time is irrelevant

Exert your Mind and spend 30 seconds to turn a fine meal into a trap. This trap lasts one day or until triggered or disarmed. Roll Charisma + Crafts at Difficulty 6.

The trap looks like a fine meal. 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 Sapient, Living target within within 5 feet that uses the trap as a fine meal will trigger it. All affected targets may resist by rolling Mind at Difficulty 6.

When the trap is triggered, the targets will keep their full attention focused on the trap for contested Outcome in minutes. They will automatically fail any rolls related to noticing anything other than the trap. If they cannot perceive the trap through Smell for three Rounds, the Effect is broken. The Effect ends early if the target is Injured or violence occurs nearby.

This does not affect the target’s opinion of the trap or their mood, and they may take any Actions while affected (including attacking), as long as that action centers on the trap. Fascinated targets cannot Concentrate.

Fascinated targets are at a -2 dice penalty to any rolls they make to resist any other Effects that you attempt to use on them.

  • Triggering the trap requires an Action from the target, not merely an incidental glance.
  • 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.
