Telepathic Chatter

“No one can tell, when two people walk closely together, what unconscious communication one mind may have with another.”
- Robert Barr

A 1 Gift Send Message Power used by Bo Perkins, created by BobDylan530.

Description

The Psychic can speak directly into someone's mind, engaging in an entirely telepathic conversation with the target's inner monologue.

System Active

Spend an Action to send a telepathic message to an individual within 150 feet. You must be able to see your target, and they must be human. The message can be no more complicated than a tweet (just a couple sentences), but the target may reply in kind, and the telepathic conversation can bypass any language barrier which exists.


Enhancements

  • Psychic Speaking (The message transcends the language barrier. You do not need to share a language with your recipient.)
  • Conversational (Upon receiving the message, your target may use this Power to send a response without an Exertion cost. Only a single response is allowed unless the Enhancement "Connection" is taken.)
  • Concealed (This Power is not obvious. Bystanders must roll Perception + Alertness, Difficulty 7 to determine the Power's Source and Target. You must still exhibit some tell that you are using it such as a small gesture, an intense stare, or a bloody nose.)
  • Cantrip (This Power has no Exertion cost, but its level is capped at 2 Gifts, and it cannot be upgraded further)

Drawbacks

  • Tweet (Your message may only be one or two short sentences long.)
  • Call From Inside the House (You may only target individuals within 150 feet.)
  • 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 - Must be able to see the target
