The power to learn details about others.
Used by Jessie (Carrion) Hope, Created by Iamangelofwar.
(During Effect activation, you are obviously interacting with the target. )

You speak or interact with the target, then pause for a moment, contemplating where you might’ve seen them before, invoking this feeling of Deja-reve, or the feeling that you’ve dreamed of them before.


Exert your Mind and spend 2 Actions. Select a Sapient target within arm's reach. You cannot investigate the same target more than once per hour. At the end of your investigation, roll Intellect + Occult at Difficulty 6.

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

  • You learn where the target sleeps, how long they tend to sleep each night, and whether or not they have nightmares.
  • You learn a hidden desire of the target. Roll Outcome determines the relevancy / secret-ness of the desire.

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.
