Legacy Power: Both Sides Of Your Mouth

Politicians become experts at getting people to read something into their words without actually saying much of anything at all.

A 2 Gift Send Message Power created by ExampleRobot.

Description

While giving a speech, the Politician may send secret messages to someone which cannot be heard by anyone else in the crowd or listening from home. The only indication that anything is happening is the use of the telltalle Clinton-style thumb point.

System

While giving a speech, spend an Action and Exert your Mind to send a message to an individual at any distance. 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 few short sentences or a tweet, and you must make the Bill Clinton thumb point while sending the message. If you are being televised, you may use this power with no exertion cost.


Enhancements

  • Concealed (Using this Effect is not obvious. Choose a Tell that occurs only when you use the Effect; if-- and only if-- someone suspects that a Effect was used, they must roll Perception + Alertness, Difficulty 8 to pick up on your Tell.)
    • Tell - Talking and making the classic politician tucked-thumb point

  • Conditionally Costless (This Effect does not require Exertion in certain circumstances. The condition should be balanced such that it has an activation cost the majority of the time you are able to use it.)
    • Condition - Is being televised

  • Whisper Through the √¶ther (You may Send Message to a target at any range.)

Drawbacks

  • Tweet (Your message may only be one or two short sentences long.)
  • Conditional (This Effect is only available when a certain condition is met. This condition must be severe enough that this Gift is unusable the majority of the time.)
    • Condition - Must be giving a speech and target must be listening to the speech
