Campaign of the Month: September 2013
Step: Rank + PER
The adept can see the strength and composition of another being’s life force by making a Lifesight Test and comparing the result against the Spell Defense of each living being within Lifesight Rank × 10 yards. If successful, the adept can see that target’s life force—which appears as an interpretation of their astral imprint—for a number of rounds equal to his Lifesight Rank, and gains qualitative information about it. A vibrant, healthy life force appears as a strong but delicate latticework of light and opalescent force. Weaker life forces are dimmer, and parts of the latticework may appear warped or broken. The life force of a character near death shows almost no visible latticework, just a few disconnected bright spots, one or more of which is fading. An adept can use Lifesight to view a target’s life force through solid, non-living objects. For example, a character could see the life forces of people hiding behind a brick wall, but not someone hiding inside the bole of a tree.
