Legacy Power: Uncanny Understanding

*Wink* "That's interesting... Lovely meeting you."

A 1 Gift Investigate Individual Power used by Emanuel Baxter, created by BoringIndividual.

Description

User rolls Intelligence + influence to gain knowledge about a target who they just shook hands with.

System

Exert your Mind, choose a Sapient target within Arm's Reach and spend 1 Minute examining them. At the end of the cast time roll [[investigate-roll]]. The quality of the information you receive depends on your Outcome, and the nature of the information depends on the Enhancements you have chosen.

The number of information-revealing Enhancements attached to this power is limited to 2 for Novice characters, 4 for Seasoned characters, and 7 for Veteran characters. You may still take any number of other, non-informational enhancements.


Enhancements

  • Weakness (Determine any major weaknesses that the target might have.)
  • Diagnostic (Determine any medical or psychological afflictions they have, as well as their species and a general overview of their biology.)
  • 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 - A subtle quick wink

Drawbacks

  • Humanities (This Power can only be used on Humans.)
  • 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 - The user must shake the targets hand to gain the information

Parameters

Range: 0 ( Arm's Reach ) Cast Time: 1 ( 1 Minute )
