I Know You Can Understand Me

“Look over here… c’mon, I know you can talk.”

A 2 Gift Commune Power used by Elliot Broussard, created by lumiq.


Elliot’s always wanted to talk to animals, and after the last few Contracts and his understanding of how Gifts manifest, he figured it was worth putting a little extra effort into. Also, animals don’t judge when you lose your eyebrows, ‘cause they don’t know the difference…

Elliot approaches an animal (or creature) and speaks to it respectfully, asking questions most of the time, probably trying to make friends. Once Elliots arm enters the set radius, it begins to let off a gray-blue, smoking aura.

System Passive

Spend an Action, Exert your Mind, and select a target within 20 feet. The target may communicate in your language for 10 minutes.

You may only communicate with the sorts of targets that your "Commune" Enhancements allow. Without at least one "Commune" Enhancement, this Power is unusable.

  • Commune: Creatures (You may commune with aliens, animals, monsters, and other inhuman creatures.)


  • Tunnel Vision (While this power is active, you are at -2 dice to all Actions, and cannot Concentrate.)
