Creating a New Hack Power

Show Examples

Effect: Hack
Bypass technological safeguards

You may issue an arbitrary command to any mundane piece of technology you are interfacing with. This command can be a request for a single set of credentials, allowing you to hack a specific account until its passcode is changed.

Exert your Mind and spend [[cast-time]] hacking the target. Roll [[activation-roll]], the Difficulty of which is determined by the GM based on the security of the system you are hacking. A bar's point-of-sales system would be Difficulty 5, a major social media site Difficulty 7, and a nuclear reactor is Difficulty 9.

If you succeed, you may issue a single command to the system. This command must have a specific outcome or be a request for specific login credentials. The command you issue must be within the machine's current capabilities. For example, you cannot order a standard security camera to grow legs and walk around.

This Power is not usable on sentient or supernatural machines.
