Moving Finger (•••)Edit
- Action: Instant
- Dice pool: Inner Light + Investigation
- Cost: 1 Wisp
- Duration: 1 scene
The Noble mentally describes an object. She becomes aware of the location of the nearest object matching the description within 25 * the activation successes in yards; no matter how well it is concealed, she can find it as an unrolled action. The description must be phrased in terms of the object’s composition and form, not its significance or intended use. For example, “audiotapes”, “letters in my father’s handwriting”, and “weak places in the wall” all work; “incriminating evidence”, “letters about my father”, and “something that will help me escape” do not. A Noble can find only one object at a time; if she activates Moving Finger when she already has it active, the first use ends immediately.
- Cost: +1 Wisp
The Noble becomes aware of every object matching the description within range. She can find objects matching only one description at a time.
Upgrade: Significant (Acqua ••)Edit
The Noble may describe an object by its meaning. For example, she can find documents about a specific subject in a wall of file cabinets, or search the scene of a murder for clues to the killer’s identity.
The presence of Taint, and the property of being a focus of Taint, is considered part of an object’s meaning, so applying Significant allows the Charm to find a Tainted area’s focus.
