Inquisition → Mind Probe → Memory Wipe Inquisition (Tier 1) allows you to know when someone is lying unless their mind is protected in some way, such as through Bastion of Thought. However, you will become aware of any such protection IF your Intellect is greater than that of the target. Concentration: Life Energy cost: Effect: Intense Becomes Active at Rank 4 Becomes Passive at Rank 7 10 per use. For 1 minute per Rank you will be aware, barring other mental protections, when anyone within direct (i.e. not via telephone) ear shot is lying. Mind Probe (Tier 2) makes your target’s short-term memories and knowledge accessible without them being aware of the mental intrusion. Longer-term memory can be accessed through careful questioning that brings what you seek to the forefront of the mind. If your target’s mind is protected, for example through Bastion of Thought, they are entitled to try and rebuff your intrusion, but the result is not guaranteed. They will, however, become aware of attempt. Concentration: Life Energy cost: Effect: Intense Becomes Active at Rank 7 25 per use. At Rank 1 you can (re)view the last 5 minutes of your targets memories for significant information. This increases by 5 minutes per Rank so by Rank 10 you can scan back as far as 50 minutes. For every Rank difference between you and your target, in their favor, they gain 20% change to rebuff the intrusion and become aware that it has been attempted. If you are successful, then the target never realizes what has happened. Memory Wipe (Tier 3) eliminates recent memories from your target’s mind. As with Mind Probe if your target’s mind is protected, for example through Bastion of Thought, they are entitled to try and rebuff the erasure, but the result is not certain. They will, however, become aware of attempt. If a wipe is successful then the target may become disorientated and question “how did I get here”, “what was I doing”, “I’ve never met you before have I”, depending on circumstance. They do not, however, consciously know they have any lost memories. Concentration: Life Energy cost: Effect: Intense 30 per use. You can effectively delete, up to, 1 minute per Rank of your targets memories. The period you can go back is limited to 12 hours in the past. For every Rank difference between you and your target, in their favor, they gain 20% change to rebuff the intrusion and become aware that it has been attempted. If you are successful, then the target never realizes what has happened. Page 67
