A Feast to be Remembered

1
The power to discover details about an Object.
Used by Smoke Locket, Created by Battlerwinner.
(During Effect activation, you are obviously examining the target object. You must actively and obviously be using up the target's blood.)

Blood carries memory, in theory at least. Such is the theory of Smoke as he gorges himself on a feast of blood. Within the essence he finds memories, a name, an identity the blood goes by. Further focus drives him to a scent, movement, prey.


Exert your Mind and spend a minute. Select a target Object within arm's reach. You must use up the target's blood in order to activate this Effect. At the end of your investigation, roll Charisma + Investigation at Difficulty 6.

You learn all the following information about your target:

  • You receive a trail of scent, allowing you to discern where this object has recently been.
  • You learn the target's names-nicknames-aliases (as per Alias in Investigate Individual).
The quality and specificity of information gained depends on your Outcome.

  • 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.
