    That's actually called out as a specific use of Vitakinesis (five dots in Iatrosis, Adjust Template).

      Or, you could use the right tool for the job.

      • I don't see a Q&A thread so I will ask here.

        It seems to me we are missing a Performance and Craft ability. Though it seems Technology can be used to repair and craft, its very emphasized that its more for electronics and such. And how do we do a Performance roll, like play the guitar, or do a fancy dance or Sing? Maybe an edge?


        It is a time for great deeds!

          To my understanding (and this applies to Scion too, so I would imagine it would apply to all Storypath games), you simply don't have a Craft or a Performance skill. Instead, one of your paths aligns appropriately (something like a Tinkerer or a Rock Star Path), and then what matters is the point of the roll? Are you trying to make people feel something? Presence+Empathy. Are you trying to show off your technical expertise while dancing? Dexterity+Athletics. Are you leading people to goal, like in any number of musicals? Presence+Command. Are you showcasing a specific And so on.

          For Craft, again, it matters what the relevant path is and then what you're crafting/repairing. If it is a beautiful portrait or sculpture, it would probably be Dexterity+Humanties, maybe Presence+Humanities for a particularly emotional piece. Are you building a quick-and-dirty shelter in the middle of the woods to keep you out of the rain? Intellect+Survival. Some sort of gadget? Intellect+Science or Technology to plan it, Cunning to jury-rig it, Dexterity if it volatile.

            “Artistic Talent” is a 1-3 point edge. You gain an Enhancement from the Edge toward the goal of your performance or creation (probably Persuasion, Command, Culture, or Larceny)

            • So technically aren't the Doyen basically Psiads?

              • Depends what you mean. If you define psiads as naturally-occurring psions, then you could say yes. If you define psiads as naturally-occurring human psions, no.

                If you’re using some other definition entirely, you’ll have to let us know what you’re thinking.

                  This.

                  Because to me that is what a Psiad is, a naturally occurring Psion.

                  Well, really, we should more aptly say that a Psion is an artificial Psiad, but yeah. Hehe

                  Thanks for the response.

                  • I'm not sure you could call the Doyen psiads, though, even if you were using the broader definition of "naturally occurring psion." Because they are extensively genetically engineered. They just stopped short of whatever the final stage of psi power happened to be.
