Uncanny Understanding

"That's interesting... Lovely meeting you." *Wink*

A 1 Gift Investigate Individual Power used by Emanuel Baxter, created by BoringIndividual.

Description

User rolls Intelligence + influence to gain knowledge about a target who they just shook hands with.

System Active

Exert your Mind, choose a Sapient target within Arm's Reach and spend 2 Rounds examining them. At the end of the cast time roll Intellect + Influence Difficulty 6. The quality of the information you receive depends on your Outcome, and the nature of the information depends on the Enhancements you have chosen.

The number of information-revealing Enhancements attached to this power is limited to 2 for Novice characters, 4 for Seasoned characters, and 7 for Veteran characters. You may still take any number of other, non-informational enhancements.


Enhancements

  • Diagnostic (Determine any medical or psychological afflictions they have, as well as their species and a general overview of their biology.)
  • Lucifer (You learn a hidden desire of the target.)
  • Concealed (This power is not obvious, and it is hard for others to notice its use. Choose a Tell that occurs only when you use the Power; if someone suspects that a Power was used, they must roll Perception + Alertness, Difficulty 8 to pick up on your Tell.)
    • Tell - A subtle quick wink

Drawbacks

  • Humanities (This Power can only be used on Humans.)
  • Conditional (Only usable when a certain condition is met. This condition must be severe enough that the Power is unusable the majority of the time.)
    • Condition - The user must shake the targets hand to gain the information
  • Focus (Activating this Power requires a specific kind of item.)
    • Object - A pair of glasses

Parameters

Range: 0 ( Arm's Reach ) Cast Time: 2 ( 2 Rounds )
