Perception Powers

Aura Sight

Tier: Novice (upgradeable to Seasoned)

Type: Active
Range: 1 meter
Duration: Skill modifier in hours

You can view auras. (All sentient creatures have auras, as do objects with intelligence and/or souls. An object which is animate but does not have intelligence or a soul does not have an aura.) The amount of detail you perceive is determined by the degree of success. This could potentially allow you to determine whether a creature has supernatural powers which are not Concealed or is itself supernatural in nature, basic personality, taint, curses, and the like. Since this is not an attack, Mental Parry does not provide an opposed roll, though Mask Aura does. The aura of a creature whose Powers are all Concealed does not appear any different from the aura of a mundane. This ability does not enable you to sense magic, psionics, or the use of supernatural powers; it does not overlap with Sense Power.

Possible Enhancements: Concealed, Warning, Resistance, Nightvision, Spectrum (can see additional colors and ranges of visible light), Passive (Seasoned)

Sense Power

Tier: Novice (upgradeable to Seasoned)

Type: Active
Range: 1 meter
Duration: Skill modifier in hours

You have a way of sensing magic, psionics, and other supernatural powers which are actively in use. You cannot sense supernatural creatures, nor can you sense creatures or objects which merely have supernatural powers; you can only sense powers that are currently being used. You detect Active Powers which are currently Active, including those which are Delayed or Triggered, and supernatural effects of any sort if they are either active or can be activated by events or circumstances, including the passage of time. This includes traps and alarms.

If you wish to learn more than the presence or absence of the supernatural, such as type or degree of power, you must spend an action scrutinizing the target and make a skill check with a -3 penalty; the degree of success on this roll determines the amount of information gained.

Possible Enhancements: Concealed, Warning, Resistance, Nightvision, Spectrum (can see additional colors and ranges of visible light), Passive (Seasoned)
