Crow Herald

"Caw Caw! -- I mean, my mistress bid me to deliver this message to you. . ."

A 1 Gift Send Message Power created by shady.


The Witch summons a crow, whispers a message to it, and sends it off to deliver her words. Half an hour later, the crow arrives at the recipient and repeats her message aloud in its croaking, animal voice. The recipient may instruct the crow to relay a message back to The Witch.

System Active

Spend an Action and Exert your Mind to send a message to an individual within 10 miles. You must have a specific target in mind, but you require only an intuitive understanding of them, such as their name, face, or location. The message can be no more complicated than a multi-page letter or long email.


  • 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.)
  • Cantrip (This Power has no Exertion cost, but its level is capped at 2 Gifts, and it cannot be upgraded further)
  • Whisper Through the √¶ther (You may Send Message to a target at any range.)


  • Laaaaag (Your message takes 30 minutes to arrive at its target.)
  • Flying Paper (Your message may be intercepted in transit, and any individuals near the target may be able to read or hear it.)
  • 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 - Can only be cast where crows can reach. The recipient must be somewhere a Crow could reach. Otherwise the message is delayed until they are.
