The Interpretor Hey little mama lemme whisper in your ear

This Artifact grants you the power to communicate with humans and Sapient beings.
Used by Luci Alessi, Created by Riley.
(It is clear that you are communicating with the target. You must use this Artifact obviously when activating this Effect.)

You turn on and turn up the volume of your wireless headphones and they surge with thick black shadows before dying down when the cast ends. For the next ten minutes your shadow will whisper translations from any sapient target around you as well as taking control of the motor control of your mouth when you speak, allowing you to speak flawlessly in whatever language your target speaks.

When concerning other facets of communication, your shadow will interpret anything you see to you in real time.


Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate. Roll a single D10 as a critical failure check. If you roll a 1, the Effect fails, and you The shadow incorrectly translates to you and will only translate racial slurs and taboo words.. Make a Trauma roll when you activate this Effect.

You may understand and communicate to humans and Sapient beings as if you are fluent in a relevant language for the next ten minutes.

This also includes understanding any recorded communications from the relevant targets, including writings, scent trails, etc.

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

  • The target of "human" refers to any target that speaks a human language.
  • When reading written communications, you get no information beyond what the writer was intending to communicate.
