Mirror Image

"I can't believe he shot me! Well, not me-me, but you get what I mean."

A 1 Gift Illusion Power created by shady.

Description

The Psychic focuses for a moment, and a precise replica of themselves shimmers into existence. The copy is merely a visual illusion and is easily dispelled if attacked. The Psychic may concentrate to puppet the illusion, or give it a basic, repetitive task.

When the illusion ends, the psychic's body is wracked with sympathetic pain.

System Active

Exert your Mind, spend an minute, and make a Charisma +Influence roll, Difficulty 7. Success allows you to generate a visual illusion of yourself and place it within arms reach. The illusion will remain in place for 1 Minute, but it may be directed by concentrating.

Upon observing an active illusion, a person can make a Mind roll, difficulty 7. If their Outcome is greater than the Outcome on your initial roll, they realize that they are viewing an illusion, though it will still be visible to them for the duration. If they investigate the illusion and notice it is non-corporeal or otherwise behaves in a bizarre manner, they conclude it is an illusion without a roll.

Your mirror image may only affect a person's sense of sight, not hearing, smell, taste, touch, or other senses. If touched or attacked, it is destroyed. When the illusion ends, your Penalty is increased by 2 for one hour.


Enhancements

  • Replicate (Your illusion may be a copy of a specific being. The illusion is still created from your mind, and so you cannot learn anything new about the individual and the representation is limited by your familiarity.)
  • Positively Lifelike (Your illusion can now move, though it remains fixed roughly at it's initial location. You may "puppet" your Illusions' Actions by concentrating.)

Drawbacks

  • Fragile Illusion (Touching or attacking your Illusion destroys it.)
  • Single Trick (You are only able to project a specific type of image or object.)
    • Type of Illusion - Images of self
  • Painful (Your Penalty is increased by 2. This lasts for either one hour, or the length of the Duration parameter if applicable. Is always on for Passive abilities.)

Parameters

Duration: 1 ( 1 Minute ) Size: 2 ( No larger than a person )
