Control Randomness

Trigger Action (Combo)

When you witness something with a large amount of inherent randomness, such as many Flux powers, you get to pick the result. This does not apply to the regular dice roll to determine the success of an action, only to special random results of actions like Chaos Blast. You can also control the result of other actions with entirely random random results, such as the flip of a coin. The power of a Finisher is too great for you to affect this way.

Using this power repeatedly becomes harder and harder; make a Know roll with a difficulty equal to the number of times you have tried to use this power this session. On a failure, you suffer a Setback.

You can end the effects of other powers. You can only dispel powers you know of (though a vague description, such as "whatever is making Bert turn green" is ok). You can try to dispel a single Finisher, Limit Break, or any power that has been in effect for a week or more, or you can try to dispel all powers except those mentioned above on one creature or in an area with a diameter equal to your Mind. When dispelling several powers at once, you can choose to ignore some of them as long as you know of each power you want to make an exception for.

A power that has been dispelled cannot be used again by that creature in this scene, and another creature that tries to use the same power in the same general area must match your Know with the stunt the power is used with, or it fails.

This will not negate a Curse, but will tell you how to defeat the curse if the roll is successful.

Inherent powers cannot be dispelled.

The difficulty is the skill of the most skilled creature involved in making the effect. Effects that have been around a long time are harder to dispel: see the table. Use the highest relevant difficulty.

You can dispel any power of the Flux form or which affects Whimsies.

Hallucinations

Stance

You fool detection powers by showing trippy visions of things that might be instead of what is. The area is a radius equal to your Know in meters around you. Anyone trying to detect or remotely sense the area gets confusing, misleading, or nonsensical results unless they score an Outcome on their skill roll matching your Know.

Jinx

Trigger Action

Whenever someone near you is making a roll to succeed at something and you are aware of the event, you can try to jinx and foil their efforts. The difficulty of their action becomes your Know +3. Range and other penalties can reduce your effective skill rating. You can hinder any number of actions but only completely jinx an action and cause it to fail completely by once per scene per creature; random accidents go only so far.

Sense Power

Basic Action

You can sense the presence of Powers. All powers play around with the natural state of the world, and those sensitive to flux can sense such changes. You can normally sense the presence of an active power effect without knowing what power it is, but you can choose to limit the detection to certain forms, techniques or even specific powers. Make a skill roll and multiply the result by 10; this is the range in meters. If the power detected is in range of your physical senses, you also gain a basic understanding of it and how it works.

Whimsy Evidence

Basic Action

You introduce chaos in an area with a diameter equal to your Mind in meters, making what happened there impossible to tell. The power randomizes physical evidence and removes any lingering auras in the area, making it impossible to use it as a magical link to someone or to see if any magic has been performed there. Objects in the area are no longer considered personal belongings or body parts of anyone. Objects carried or worn by creatures in the area are not affected, nor are objects in secure containers. You can focus the effect on a specific willing or helpless creature instead of an area, affecting everything worn or carried by this creature.
