Energize → Control Link → Extra Sensory Link Energize (Tier 1) absorbs energy from another source and then channels that energy into a Gemstone Capacitor for storage, with the Meta Engineer acting as a psychically- protected conduit. This means that grabbing a high-voltage cable, or being engulfed in flame, is possible for as long as the Meta Engineer is holding the Gemstone Capacitor AND it can hold the energy flooding into it. Disaster could result if the energy is too much for the Gemstone Capacitor to store. This energy reservoir can be used later at will. Either in a Psytomaton if the Gemstone Capacitor is attuned or in some other device if not. In the special case of Life Energy, drawn from the Meta Engineers own, there is no need for inclusion in a “device” it simply needs to be touching the skin to tap the contained energy and regain lost Life Energy. Consequently, the gemstone is usually fashioned into jewelry or weapon hilt, handle, or strap. However, the Gemstone Capacitor is attuned to the Meta Engineer during the process and hence only useable by that same Meta Engineer. Other forms of energy storage, however, such as electricity do need some method of engineered access. An area of continual government and commercial research. Concentration: Life Energy cost: Effect: Intense Life Energy Energize - total available. Other Energy Energize - 1 for 1, i.e. 1 Life Energy protects against the transfer of 1 point of some other form of energy. Energy storage limited by Gemstone Capacitor Energy Max. Control Link (Tier 2) allows you to extend your mind out and connect with the Gemstone Capacitor in a Psytomaton to “see and hear” through it and remote control its physical operation. Essential, for example, to effectively deploy a Spy Bug for illicit surveillance. Concentration: Life Energy cost: Effect: Active, Interruptible Becomes Passive at Rank 4 20 to establish link. (20 - Rank) per hour to use. Psytomaton remote operation at a range of 1 mile per Rank. Extra Sensory Link (Tier 3) allows you to form a complete psychic link with a Gemstone Capacitor such that with concentration you can now use your Talents as if you were there. Concentration: Life Energy cost: Effect: Passive (Special), Interruptible 30 to establish link. (20 - Rank) per hour to use. Psytomaton remote Talent use at a range of 1 mile per Rank. Although Passive the Meta Engineer cannot use other Talents except through the linked Psytomaton. Page 79
