3.3.6   PERCEPTION

THIRD TRIAD

Shift Sense
Level: 1
Aspect: Knowledge
Duration: Scene
Forms: Divine, Hidden, Subtle
Description
This force allows an angel to slightly manipulate one of a material being’s senses. If the storyteller requires a roll, it is usually resisted with the target's perception. If successful, the celestial can slightly alter what the target perceives. A red dress can look like a yellow one; a sour lemon can taste sweet. Only one use of this force can be applied to a single target. Additionally, the force can be used against other celestials but only when they are in the hidden form. If this is the case, they resist the effects with their understanding score

Sheltered Eye
Level: 2
Aspect: Knowledge
Duration: Scene
Forms: Divine, Hidden, Subtle
Description
This force causes a material being to consistently overlook a chosen object. Their eyes wander over the thing with out actually perceiving it. This makes the object virtually invisible to the target. The roll is opposed by the target’s perception. Unlike Shift Sense, this force can not be used against celestials even if they are in the hidden form.

Optional Rules
Larger objects may be more difficult to conceal from the observer. Items the size of a table or bigger carry with them a penalty of +5 to the target number, while items the size of a small dwelling or larger have a penalty of +10 to the target.

Sheltered Masses
Level: 3
Aspect: Knowledge
Duration: Scene
Forms: Divine, Hidden, Subtle
Description
In many respects this is simply an enhancement of the Sheltered Eye force. The only difference is that it effects a significant area around the object. Anyone passing inside this area will succumb to the force. Hence a building might be virtually invisible to the inhabitants within a block of it, but those viewing it from miles away can clearly see it. If the item is moved, the area of obscurity surrounding it moves with it.

Optional Rules
The radius of coverage for this force is equal to 20 x the angels grace score in feet. In addition, if the celestial’s roll exceeds a difficulty of near impossible (35) the effects last for the remainder of the Story.

Lost Sense
Level: 3
Aspect: Knowledge
Duration: Session
Forms: Divine, Hidden, Subtle
Description
This force renders the mortal target with out the use of one sense. This force can not be compounded to take away many of the target
's senses. The roll is contested using the target’s perception score. Though the effects can last the remainder of the session, the celestial can choose to alleviate the impairment at any time.


SECOND TRIAD

Divine Darkness
Level: 4
Aspect: Knowledge
Duration: Session
Forms: Divine, Hidden, Subtle
Description
This force allows the user to invoke the power of Lost Sense on a group. The force effects all mortal beings within a 20’ radius of the primary target. Only the target with the highest perception rolls against the force’s user. Success or failure of this contested roll determines the outcome of the entire group. Angels can not choose to exempt certain beings from the force’s effect.

Vanishing
Level: 5
Aspect: Knowledge
Duration: Story
Forms: Divine, Hidden, Subtle
Description
Objects that were once clearly present suddenly become imperceptible. They can not be seen touched, or in anyway detected in the material world. They are however, not destroyed. In fact, these objects still leave am ethereal shadow of their presence. Thus they are always discernible to celestial creatures. Children of fire often use this force to hide doorways or conceal holy relics. A mortal can see the object if given permission by the angel who invoked the force.

Optional Rules
As with Sheltered Eye the larger the object, the greater the difficulty: table size object are hard (25) and small dwellings are very hard (30).
