Non-detection → Mind Fog → Bastion of Thought Non-detection (Tier 1) prevents your thoughts from revealing your location to those able to “see” them through other psychic abilities or through Life Energy detection such as that exhibited by Othersiders. Concentration: Life Energy cost: Effect: Passive Becomes Subconscious at Rank 4 1 per ½ hour; at Rank 1 you can effectively go undetected for just over 1 day if no other Life Energy is expended. Add ½ hour per rank so at Rank 4 the effect can over 5 days. Your location cannot be revealed through non-conventional means. Mind Fog (Tier 2) allows you to make it more difficult for your target to think clearly, unable to focus. Things seem intellectually more challenging and Talents only come with difficulty, if at all. Concentration: Life Energy cost: Effect: Active, Interruptible Becomes Passive at Rank 7 10 per round. Intellect of target -1. Effective Rank -3; if Rank = 0 then Talents cannot be used for the duration. Bastion of Thought (Tier 3) represents the pinnacle of mental control. Requiring only minimal concentration to provide total protection from any attack or intrusion into your mind. This includes those seeking to detect, influence, read your emotions and thoughts, or cause you mental harm. Concentration: Life Energy cost: Effect: Passive 5 per minute. Immunity to all Talents that directly affect the mind. You would be, for example, protected from Empathy but still subject to Incendiary Touch. Tenebrous Shroud → Grim Embrace → Dark Displacement Tenebrous Shroud (Tier 1) forms a swirling cloud of gloom around you that makes it harder for your enemies to strike true, getting denser and rotating faster as the Talent develops. For those staring into this darkness around you it seems that something they find disturbing stares back before being swept away in the black maelstrom. Concentration: Life Energy cost: Effect: Active 20 per use. Causes any physical attack to be made at a -5% per Rank. Lasts 1 round per Rank. Page 70
