True World Resonance

2
Requires Seasoned
You possess supernaturally heightened senses.
Used by Iryna Vorobyova, Created by Iamangelofwar.

Iryna has spent time in a dimension made of sound and resonance, really tapping into what it means to adjust between different forms of energy, like the jacket of the clockwork man, connecting it to one of her batteries and filling it with enough energy to make it new. The realm was… difficult to say the least, and her teammates even more so, but it gave her time to learn and listen. Feel for how the world works beyond her sight.


You gain the following benefits at all times.

Your senses are enhanced in the following way.

  • Hearing: You are capable of perceiving physical shapes via sound. You must produce a small ringing like a tuning fork to “ping” with your echolocation each Round you wish to use it.
  • 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.
  • Thermal: You are able to "see" heat signatures within your line of sight.

Any heightened senses require you to maintain Concentration to use, and do not apply to any passive Perception checks.

  • Your thermal vision allows you to judge temperatures of surfaces fairly accurately as long as they are within livable temperatures.
