Mage Hand

"Better hold onto your wallet. Otherwise, it'll come to me when I call it!"

A 1 Gift Telekinesis Power used by Preston Vincent Astor III, created by ShadyTradesman.

Description

Preston uses his magic wand to move shit that's far away. Sparkles appear at the tip of his wand and also on the object that he's manipulating.

System Active

By concentrating fully, you are able to interact with objects you can see at a distance of 75 feet. Rolls for Actions taken with these objects use Intelligence in place of Brawn and Wits in place of Dexterity. The effective rating for these Attributes is limited to 3 for Actions that would use Brawn and 3 for Actions that would use Dexterity.

You cannot engage in Combat with this Power, and you are limited to actions that a standard human could take with their bare hands, were they close to the object (no lockpicking or surgery by default).

If the object passes out of sight, you lose your hold on it.

You must maintain concentration while using this Power. That means you can only move at a slow walk, and cannot split your Action between using the Power and other Actions. If you are Injured or interrupted, you must roll Mind Difficulty 9 to maintain Concentration. If you fail, you cannot use this Power for a minimum of 6 - Wits rounds.


Enhancements

  • Deft Brain (You may now manipulate small or delicate pieces of items, allowing you to unscrew things, attempt to pick someone's pockets, do a sleight of hand trick, etc.)

Drawbacks

  • Mage (Activating this Power requires at least two committed Actions and involves intricate use of the arms, hands and either the voice or an object. If interrupted during activation, the Power Fails.)
    • Activation Ritual - Wiggle fingers of off-hand and speak a rhyme related to making the object move.
  • Focus (Activating this Power requires a specific kind of item.)
    • Object - A polished wood or metal rod (wand)
