Aspects, how do they work?


  • Base difficulty is 3 + the highest aspect level you're trying to reach. (3 plus, not 4 plus. House rule.)
    • When using level 6 of a numina, base difficulty is 3+6=9 (even if the aspects only go from 1 to 5).
  • One success lets you reach each aspect at the one-dot level.
    • Exception: Weather Control requires four successes to reach each aspect (intensity, speed, duration, scale) at the one-dot level.
  • Each additional success lets you reach one aspect at one level higher.
  • You can't reach any aspect at a level higher than your dots in the path.
    • Exception: You can reach one aspect at one level higher than your path, but this requires twice as many successes as the same effect with that aspect equal to your path.

Example 1: You want to teleport from your house to a locked vault (Conveyance). It's 50 feet away (distance level 2), you don't care how long it takes (speed level 1), and you're just taking the clothes on your back (weight level 1).

  • You need Conveyance 2 or higher.
  • Your difficulty is 3 + 2 = 5.
  • You need two successes Dot-filled.pngFdot.png which gives you distance Dot-filled.pngFdot.png + speed Dot-filled.png + weight Dot-filled.png

Example 2: Now you want to teleport from the vault back to your house. It's still 50 feet away (distance level 2), you set off an alarm so you want to get there within three seconds (speed level 3), and you're taking a briefcase full of money (weight level 2).

  • You need Conveyance 3 or higher.
  • Your difficulty is 3 + 3 = 6.
  • You need 5 successes Dot-filled.pngFdot.pngFlitebludot.pngFLimedot.pngFpnkdot.png which gives you distance Dot-filled.pngFdot.png + speed Dot-filled.pngFlitebludot.pngFLimedot.png + weight Dot-filled.pngFpnkdot.png

Psychic powers

  • Psychic powers don't have aspects.
  • Difficulty is as specified by the power/level, default 6 if no other value is given.
