Creating a New Read Memory Power


Show Examples

Effect: Read Memory
Read the experiences of others

Required Status: Seasoned

You can read the memories of a target. The target is aware that their thoughts are being probed while the probe lasts. If the target moves out of range or your concentration is interrupted, your connection is severed. You can only probe thoughts that they themselves remember.

Select a Living, Animate target within [[range]], Exert your Mind, spend [[cast-time]] establishing a connection, and roll [[activation-roll]], which the target can contest by rolling [[resistance]]. You must maintain concentration as long as you are reading their memories. The target is aware that their thoughts are being probed but not of the source. If the target moves out of range or your concentration is interrupted, the effect ends.

This Power lets you ask specific questions about the target’s memory like “what is their computer password,” “What were they doing at 4:00PM yesterday?” “When was the last time they met so and so?”, And answers generally play back like a scene. This Power does not allow you to glean large synthesis answers like “Is she a good person?” “Is she planning on backstabbing us?” “Is she popular?”
