The spirit is a vicarious and nebulous thing – but speak the right words and it becomes your plaything.
Abilities granted by this skill cost Focus Points (FP) to activate, and their costs are listed in the description of each ability below. Omega abilities will almost always cost the same amount of FP as the tier of the skill they are from. To use an ability in this skill set, you must spend at least 5 seconds verbally activating the ability, so that those around you can hear it, before indicating a target and announcing the effect. Do not mumble or whisper your vocals. Although the vocals used to initiate an ability can be longer than 5 seconds, and as varied as you like, your vocals must contain the words “Omega”, “Spirit” and the name of the ability you are using.
Ability to affect one target within 10 metres (30 feet) with the “Knockdown” call, for a cost of 1 FP. After the appropriate vocals, the call is “Focus 1 Knockdown”.
- May use Tier 1 Omega Spirit abilities.
Ability to affect one target with the “Pain” call by dagger or melee weapon blow, for a cost of 2 FP. This ability may be activated and the delivery delayed for up to 30 seconds. After the appropriate vocals, the call is “Focus 2 Pain”.
Grants the ability to gain insight into an object, person, or place, for a cost of 2 FP, using the “Psychometry” ability. This requires 30 seconds appropriate roleplay on a person, and 5 minutes on an object or place. Where there is no spiritual or Omega significance to an object or place, the user will realise after 30 seconds of communing with the spirit. Example: Before using Knockdown (for a cost of 1 FP) you might say, “By the power of the Omega, I control your spirit to cause knockdown!” followed the by call, “Focus 1 Knockdown”. After the appropriate vocals and roleplay, the call is “Focus 2 Psychometry”. If used on a known civilised race, the result should be as the table below, unless the character has a spirit effect lammie that modifies their results.
|Mascen||Grey with multiple shadows|
|Vrede (Generation 25)||None|
|Vrede (Generation 26)||Prismatic|
