Aberrant Charm

Basic Action

You are supernaturally enchanting to certain creatures. You master whatever form of communication they use, even if you are normally unable to communicate with them at all.

Enchanting someone requires an opposed Charm roll. On an Outcome equal to the target's Mind, the target falls for your enchantment. On a lesser success you gain an advantage.

Once someone has been enchanted, they will willingly follow and help you out. They seek to avoid conflict with their old allies, but if push comes to shove you cannot guarantee how they will react; they will try to avoid seeing you harmed, but they might make you a captive to save you later or even to have you at their mercy, or they might decide to throw in their lot with you and abandon their former allies.

Someone who you have enchanted expects trust and help from you, but the enchantment breaks automatically only in the most blatant cases of maltreatment. If you are openly callous and disregard their interests they can make opposed Charm rolls against you to see through the enchantment. The same applies if a friend points out they have been charmed, but in this case it is an opposed roll against the friend's Charm skill and takes a Limit Break to do.

Enchantment normally wears off in about a weeks time, but can be maintained through continuous use of the power; it will last indefinitely if reapplied once per day. You leave your targets with fond memories of you unless you mistreated them. Someone who realizes they have been enchanted and used can become vindictive or even downright hostile, but this is not the normal result.

This power only works on Aberrations.

Aberrant Mind

Inherent or Stance

Attempts to use divination and mind-reading powers against you can lead to dire consequences. When a creature uses such a power to learn information about you or your mind, you can make an opposed Charm check against them. On a success, they fail to gain any useful information and are Confused until the end of the round (for the first round if this starts detailed time).

This can either be a stance or inherent power. If it is inherent, your mind is alien and your behavior is obviously odd unless you somehow disguise yourself as sane.

Basic Action

Touch a willing friend to create a spacial link to his location; you can now see and talk to this friend and use powers as if you had line of sight, ignoring all cover. You can also use Teleport powers to move this friend, or to move to the location where this friend is.

The range of Spatial Friends depends on your Charm skill. The power ends if you move out of range. You can have several spatial friends at once, up to your Mind in number. The power normally lasts until the end of a session, but the GM can judge that a mid-session break of a day or so breaks it.

Teleport Embrace

Basic Action

Select up to your Mind willing targets you can touch or who touch each other - it is possible to form a chain of hands. The next time you use a Teleport power to move, these people go along with you.

Anyone who moves out of touch with the chain of hands breaks the effect.
