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.

This is a meta-power that affects other powers. In some campaign worlds there is a strong Origin Divide among different origins. Check with your GM regarding your campaign. Origins that are opposed cannot cannot be modified by meta-powers; it is as if powers from the opposing origin was actually a schtick rather than a power.

Steal the Gift

Basic Action

The gifted are founts of power that can be tapped by the unscrupulous. Make an opposed Impress roll against a named Controlled Gifted creature. On a success you inflict one Hit on the Gifted creature and gain one Fortune point. If your Impress scores an outcome matching the Gifted creature's Mind you must instead gain two Fortune points and inflict a Hit and a Damage Setback on the Gifted creature. If you gain Fortune in excess of your Mind this way you must spend any excess points by the end of the scene, or they are lost.

Visions of Power


You focus detection powers on yourself, hiding those around you. The area is a radius equal to your Know in meters around you. Anyone trying to detect or remotely sense the area only see you doing a display of power that does not give them any information of your whereabouts unless they score an Outcome on their skill roll matching your Know.
