3.3.9   REVELATION

THIRD TRIAD

Voices
Level: 1
Aspect: Understanding
Duration: Immediate
Forms: Divine, Hidden, Subtle
Description
With this force, the angel can cause a child of clay to hear the disembodied voices of long dead loved ones. The voices can deliver any message the angel desires, provided it is no more than a few sentences in length. Though this can be a very useful power, players should take heed. Children of clay who have little faith might attribute these voices to insanity rather than celestial intervention.

Dreamsend
Level: 2
Aspect: Understanding
Duration: Scene
Forms: Divine, Hidden, Subtle
Description
Here the angel orchestrates the dreams of a child of clay. Dreams are not concrete things, though. They work through symbolism and innuendo. Often times these sophisticated metaphors are ignored or misinterpreted by the dreamer. However, they are less apt to disturb and unbalance people as some of the other forces of Revelation have the tendency to do.

Option Rules
If the storyteller wishes, the amount of control can be dependent on how much the player made the roll by. Rolls that manage only to garner a normal difficulty (20) have marginal control of the dreams. Subsequent difficulty levels will grant the angel increasingly more control of the target’s dream world.

Minor Vision
Level: 3
Aspect: Understanding
Duration: Immediate
Forms: Divine, Hidden, Subtle
Description
Through the use of this force, the angel can cause a child of clay or other mortal creature to have visions. These visions are not prophetic in nature but constructs of the angel’s imagination. Using Minor Vision only allows the angel to create ghostlike images that last for less than a minute.

Optional Rules
If the storyteller sees fit, characters who realize this power is being used on them can resist it with a prudence roll.


SECOND TRIAD

Major Vision
Level: 4
Aspect: Understanding
Duration: Immediate
Forms: Divine, Hidden, Subtle
Description
This is a more powerful version of Minor Vision. The visions can now be far more intricate. The angel can compose entire scenes filled with realistic looking images that last for many minutes at a time. It is unlikely that the target can dismiss such an occurrence (as they might be able to do with Dreamsend), though this experience can leave them unstable and confused.

Mass Vision
Level: 5
Aspect: Understanding
Duration: Immediate
Forms: Divine, Hidden, Subtle
Description
This force is identical to Major Vision with the exception that it effects all mortal beings in a small area. Though they may all see the same vision, each one might interpret its meaning differently.

Optional Rules
The area of effect for this force is a radius equal to 20 times the angel's grace score in feet.

Minor Prophecy
Level: 5
Aspect: Understanding
Duration Immediate
Forms: Divine, Hidden, Subtle
Description
This force differs from visions because it is not a construct of the angel but rather of the Almighty. Through this force, children of clay can be given a divine glimpse of the future or some universal truth. The person goes into a trance like state for as along as a  few minutes. There is absolutely no doubt within the target’s mind that this was a mystical experience of some kind (though they can misjudge its nature). This roll is not a resisted since it comes from the Almighty Himself. The angel is merely the portal through which divinity delivers its message.

Major Prophecy
Level: 6
Aspect: Understanding
Duration: Immediate
Forms: Divine, Hidden, Subtle
Description
The only difference between this and the above force is the scope. Major Prophecy can have a much more dramatic effect. The trance the target goes into can last for days; the recipient may see whole landscapes or complete futures. The message is always of earthshaking proportions. Though the Almighty gives the message, the child of fire chooses the recipient. Choosing an unworthy person for such divine inspiration can often result in the loss of grace.
