Legacy Power: Misremember

"Oh sweetie.. I'm afraid you're mistaken..."

A 1 Gift Memory Manipulation Power used by Momma Ettu, created by Redchigh.

Description

Momma Ettu is so persuasive, she can convince people they are being deceived by their own memories, and only Ettu can fill in the blanks. He words slot into the memories like lock and key, more often than not to minimize violence...

System

Exert your Mind, choose an Animate target within 20 feet, and spend 2 Rounds activating this Power. Roll Charisma + Occult Difficulty 6, which the target can resist by rolling Mind, Difficulty 6. Successes determine the amount of detail and completeness of the memory alteration. Only a One Hour period may be altered at once.

This power does not give you the ability to read the target’s mind, so the detail with which you can alter the target’s memory is limited to your knowledge of what they know. The period you are affecting is chosen either by time ("last friday night") or an event ("when the murder occurred").


Enhancements

  • Amnesia (You may have the target forget some or all of the affected without swapping in a replacement memory.)
  • Concealed (Using this Effect is not obvious. Choose a Tell that occurs only when you use the Effect; if-- and only if-- someone suspects that a Effect was used, they must roll Perception + Alertness, Difficulty 8 to pick up on your Tell.)
    • Tell - Must be talking to the target

Drawbacks

  • Biological Psychology (This power only works on Sapient, Living targets)
  • Traumatic (You must make a Trauma roll when you use this Effect. Its Difficulty cannot be reduced by any means.)
  • Fragile Under Scrutiny (If the target is confronted with compelling evidence that their memory is wrong, the alteration will revert.)
  • Echo (You must feature yourself as you appear today in some way in the affected period.)

Parameters

Period: 1 ( One Hour ) Range: 1 ( 20 feet ) Cast Time: 2 ( 2 Rounds )
