Follow The Money No, I have to do this my way. You tell me what you know, and I'll confirm. I'll keep you in the right direction if I can, but that's all. Just... follow the money. - Deep Throat, in All The President's Men (1976)

The power to mark and track a target.
Used by Bill Brenner, Created by BobDylan530.

Through clever sleight of hand, or through a simple financial transaction, Bill places a coin on his target's person - could be a quarter, could be a penny, whatever he has on hand - and will be able to detect the how far away the coin is, as well as in which direction. It feels slightly warm to the touch, as if it had been sitting in a hot car earlier that day, and if anyone looks closely at it, the eyes of Mr. Lincoln (or Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt, and occasionally Kennedy) seem to follow them, like a painting in an episode of Scooby Doo.


Spend an Action to activate. Select a target within arm's reach.

Your target is marked with a small coin until it is removed or until you choose to end the Effect. The mark can be easily removed if it is discovered.

You are aware of the marked target's direction and distance from you. You can have up to 1 mark active.

This Gift's level is capped at 2 Gifts and cannot be increased further.


Community Targeted Gifts

With the supernatural nature of the vampire, Michael is able to gain influence over others. When he uses this power his pupils dilate making his appear completely black.


Exert your Mind and spend at least one Action to activate. Select a Sapient target within 20 feet. Communicate a command to your target. Roll Charisma + Influence at Difficulty 6. The target may resist by rolling Mind at Difficulty 7.

If the contested Outcome is positive, your target will be compelled to follow your command to their best understanding of the letter and spirit of the command until they have completed it or for your Outcome in minutes. You cannot issue another suggestion to the target until 10 minutes after they have completed the first command or 10 minutes after a failure.

The target is unaware that they are under supernatural influence and feel they are acting of their own free will. If you fail, they realize that you were attempting to influence them supernaturally with your command.

Your command can be an order to take an immediate Action. You cannot order a target to "do nothing," and they are free to take other Actions as they fulfill your request. Your command cannot be obviously self-endangering or self-destructive. The Effect ends if following your command would cause a target to cross one of their Limits in a way that would necessitate a Trauma roll.

  • The target must be able to understand you and must receive your communication for the suggestion to work.
  • Allowed Commands
    • Direct Order: The target must take an immediate action (e.g. “Sit down,” "run away," or "tell me your password.")
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

Due to his special affinity for explosives, Ellis is able to remotely impose his will on them, causing them to detonate (or theoretically, to disarm, but why would you ever want to STOP an explosion?). Any time he uses this to detonate an explosive, Ellis undergoes what seems like a sneeze, except that steam shoots out of his ears and his skin blazes the color of a hot fire, before rapidly cooling off back to a normal whiteish pink.


Exert your Mind and spend 15 minutes to activate. Select a Device within 300 feet. Does not work on Alien technology. This Effect cannot be used unless the target is an explosive device. Roll Intellect + Technology, with the Difficulty set by the GM depending on the security of the system you are hacking. Sapient targets can resist by rolling Mind at Difficulty 6. The hacking roll and their defensive roll are both Difficulty 6.

If you succeed, you may issue a single command to the targeted 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.

If your command does not require bypassing the security of the target (for example, typing on a computer that is unlocked), you do not need to Exert your Mind to activate this Effect, and activation only takes a single Action.

  • When targeting non-computer devices, you may operate switches, buttons, dials, levers, and latches.
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

Penny uses the reaper’s eyes to pick apart medical and forensic information such as mold spores, residue and physical injury to determine where they were before and how they died.

Penny always loved murder mystery, and the irony of that fact is not lost on her. Now that she has become the ultimate murder mystery, she realizes that the powers gained from these jobs can use them to fulfill her detective fantasies, buy looking over the patient with the eyes of a doctor and mortician, but with her own superior reasoning skills.


Exert your Mind and spend a minute to activate. Select a Pieces of Dead Bodies within arm's reach. At the end of your investigation, roll Intellect + Medicine at Difficulty 6.

You learn all the following information about your target:

  • You can discern where this object has recently been; this may be in the form of GPS coordinates, a visual description of the surrounding area, or other.
  • You learn Cause of Death.
The quality and specificity of information gained depends on your Outcome.

  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

Carl stares at a target, and perceptive onlookers can notice the vague outline of something huge swimming across his blue irises for an instant. Both his and the target’s eyes, if the target possesses any, flicker green, before both double over in pain. For an important instant, both Carl and the target see a flash of something horrifying.

Carl always sees a fractured, out of context traumatic memory that was repressed by his previous amnestics use. His target sees something awful, but Carl doesn’t know what it is that they see. This scares him. Deeply.


Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate. Select a Sapient target within 20 feet. Make a Trauma roll when you activate this Effect. Affected targets may resist by rolling Mind at Difficulty 8 with a -3 dice penalty. If they are incapacitated or unconscious, they fail automatically.

If they fail, your target will take 1 point of Mind damage and gain a new Trauma selected by the GM. This trauma may be removed by Effects or mundane therapy as per normal rules. Affected targets are aware that they are being attacked and can generally tell who did it.

  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

You write your message on a piece(or several pieces) of paper, then draw an intricate and elaborate spell circle on the ground, using a variety of runes and diagrams found in the book used in it's casting. Upon completion, you can use this circle to send letters through the void between worlds, and the person can send them back, without a delivery nexus of their own.


Spend an Action to activate. Select a target any distance away from you. You must have a specific target in mind, but you require only an intuitive understanding of them, such as their name, face, or Location.

You open up a line of conversation to your target, and may continue speaking with them without any additional Exertion cost for as long as you maintain Concentration

The conversation may be intercepted while in transit, and may be overheard, read, or otherwise understood by anyone near either you or the recipient. You must share a common language for your target to understand the message.

This Gift's level is capped at 2 Gifts and cannot be increased further.

  • Receiving a message does not force a target to pay attention to you, and they can feel free to ignore your message if they choose. Depending on the flavor of your Gift, they may or may not be able to return to it and read it later on.
  • Generally you cannot communicate with Contractors who are not in a Contract with you.

The Necromancer stands over a corpse and makes a series of grandiose lifting gestures. The corpse rises from the ground as though suspended by invisible strings, barks a pained groan, and lands on its feet, now a full-fledged member of the living dead.

The monster hungers for brains and will aggressively pursue and attack anyone it sees, including the Necromancer that created it.


Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate. Select a Dead target within arm's reach with at least half it’s skeletal structure remaining.

Your target rises as an Animate being. The raised creature is totally mindless, with no memory of its past life or hint of its old personality. They cannot communicate. It has no obligation to follow your commands and is often aggressive.

The creature lasts for one hour or until it dies again. It is revived at full health. Any Injuries it had in life are not accounted for when determining its penalties or progression towards re-death, though they may affect its ability to perform certain actions at GM's discretion.

Raised creatures have all their Abilities set to 0. Their Charisma and Intellect are set to 1, but their Dexterity, Brawn and Perception are the same as they had in life. A raised creature cannot use any Effects.

The Necromancer may exert their will on any undead creature, forcing it to act as they desire. The Necromancer's eyes turn completely black, and they speak a command to the creature in the language of the dead.

  • Allowed Commands
    • Direct Order: The target must take an immediate action (e.g. “Sit down,” "run away," or "tell me your password.")

The Priest's miracles have expanded into the treatment and curing of poisons and diseases. To do so, however, they require a ceremonial dedication (or often re-dedication) to the service of God, during which The Priest and the patient pray together and perform some ritualistic bloodletting. The bloodletting wounds burn with holy, golden fire, attacking the sinful disease or poison and expelling it from the body.


Exert your Mind and spend 15 minutes to activate. Select a Living target within arm's reach. You cannot target yourself. Your target takes a Severity 1 Injury. You must actively and obviously use a ceremonial dagger blessed with holy water to activate this Effect.

You may cure any any number of diseases or poisons afflicting your target even if you have not diagnosed or fully understood them. You may cure diseases or poisons even if they are not treatable through modern medicine. During treatment, the malady you are treating does not progress or cause additional damage or other effects.

  • Without some sort of diagnostic Effect, “fully diagnosing” a disease or poison will always require a roll of some sort, frequently Intellect + Medicine, but the specific roll and difficulty is at GM’s discretion.

The Technician can pour a water-bottle's worth of nanite goop onto a broken machine. Under their careful direction, the nanites go to work restoring the broken object to a functioning state. The goop shimmers and crawls, sparking with blue electricity as it reforms broken parts.


Exert your Mind and spend 10 minutes to activate. Select a Object within arm's reach that is no larger than an SUV. You may target Alien technology, so long as you have an understanding of its intended function. You must use up a water bottle full of nanite goop in order to activate this Effect. More than half the target object must be present in order to begin repairs. Roll Intellect + Technology at Difficulty 6.

If you succeed, your target is repaired back to a functional state. If you fail, you spend the full time working before realizing you cannot repair the target.
