Psychic Powers

  • Telepathic Link
    • Half Action; Difficult (–10) Opposed Willpower test; Not Sustained; Concentration
    • 20 metres x psy rating
    • The psyker chooses a person in range and line of sight who opposes this power with a Willpower test. If the target fails, the psyker can either read the person’s thoughts or send him a brief mental message. If the target of this power is aware of what the psyker is trying to do, he can voluntarily fail the opposed Willpower test, counting as having rolled a 100.
    • Thought Reading: The psyker reads the target’s thoughts,with the GM determining the nature of the information gained. The more degrees of success scored on the Focus Power test, the more information is gained overall. The higher the PR of the power, the more secretive the information gained.
    • Thought Sending: The psyker causes a message to appear in the target’s mind as if he has just heard it spoken aloud. The message can be no longer than 5 x PR seconds long.
  • Erasure
    • Full Action; Challenging (+0) Opposed Willpower test; Not Sustained; Concentration
    • Range: 5 metres x psy rating
    • The psyker chooses a single foe in range and line of sight who opposes this power with a Willpower test. If he fails, the psyker removes a memory of a recent event from the target’s mind. The psyker can only remove an amount of time from the target’s memory up to 10 x PR minutes, and the event removed cannot have occurred more than PR hours prior to the use of this power. The enemy is left with a gap in his memory, with no recollection of what occurred during that time.
  • Dominate
    • Full Action; Challenging (+0) Opposed Willpower test; Not Sustained; Concentration
    • Range: 5 metres x psy rating
    • The psyker nominates a number targets in range and line of sight up to half his psy rating (rounded up) who oppose this power with a Willpower test. Each target that fails to resist the power must follow a simple command given by the psyker. Some example orders include “Flee,” “Fall,” or “Attack your friend.” If the command is a potentially suicidal act, each target receives a +20 to its Willpower test to Oppose the power. In all cases, the command must be achievable in a single round.
  • Hallucination
    • Half Action; Challenging (+0) Opposed Willpower test; Not Sustained; Concentration
    • Range: 10 metres x psy rating
    • The psyker nominates a single target in range and line of sight who opposes this power with a Willpower test. If the target fails to resist the power, it must roll on Table 5–3: Hallucinogenic Effects on page 146, and immediately apply the effects. The effect rolled on the table lasts for a number of rounds equal to half the psyker’s psy rating, rounded up.

Having ranged the wastes of Plutarch alone for much of his youth Gavriel is unused to relying on naught else but a quick draw and steady aim. He finds it hard trust those whom he hasn't known for a long time and keeps his secrets close.

Goals: Understand why he can hear the thoughts of others of make them forget things, Find someone to sanction him before a Black Ship inevitably picks him up, Find and establish himself in an organisation that accepts and uses his growing powers.

Possible 'in' to campaign: Having only recently become nascent (poss something to do with psy focus) he fled Plutarch rather than turn himself in. Fled to the only friend/acquantance he had off world (Elroy) on Askellon. When arriving his soulfire was noticed by the Inquisitor whom rated him a low enough psyker to not be an immediate threat. Decided to use Gavriel and Elroy (given they already know each other) as acolytes for Dead Below mision - Gavriel would either prove himself worthy of being given a chance or die during the mission.

Born on Plutarch
Spent his youth collecting scrap from the star ship wrecks scattered across the planet (same age & town as Elroy)
Became an outrider for Arbites (collecting Intelligence across planet as an informant)
Eventually deputised into Arbites ranks, continued to roam planet as a travelling marshal (chasing mutants, brigands, ect).
Eventually on a case that see's him investigating rumours of cold-trader, Ikram Ahmed, whom visits every few years to trade for items that locals scavenge from the wrecked planetbound ships.
Sets himself up at one of the locations, blows off Ikram's right arm with Windrunner rifle.
Ikram manages to escape back into his lander (possible future enemy).
When he inspects the site finds the traders lower arm still holding a weird fragment of metal (psy focus).
On picking it up his mind is wracked with foreign thoughts (becomes psyker).
As he travels back around planet to space port realised what he has become (after hearing surface thoughts, yelling into peoples minds instead of talking, ect).
Knows what would happen to him if he remains on planet so decides to flee off world.
Seeks out Elroy as the only person he knows who actually made it off world.
