Mind if I necro this one?
We’re tacking this issue in a different manner (specially after reading this very helpful thread itself).
My player is a vaylen traitor, and wants to stay hidden from Psychologists. Since this roll is not a use of the power, but the skill alone, it means it’s a reading of the character’s behaviour, speech, and so on; that if succesful doesn’t provide certainty but a strong suspicion.
So we created amnesia-giving pills: they can’t figure you out if you forget what you are…
The easy ones were simple +3Ob to Psychology reads; but the actual, powerful version are:
+3Ob to Psychology and Interrogation (5), +2D to Falsehood (5) - Obstacle Limitations (6pts.) spread on a few skills that make sense as depending on knowing the guys past (say Vaylen-wise, and the like).
What’s great is that it means that while high on them, he wouldn’t be able to act upon anything that comes from his insider knowledge…
I’m really excited to see where this goes.
