Powers

Imaginary Warriors
Rank: Novice
Power Points: 3/Warrior
Range: Smarts
Duration: Special
Trappings: steely gaze, furrowed brow, rallying battle cry

This power is only available to characters from Lothar, which has defended itself in isolation from rampaging Green hordes for centuries by the amazing ability to conjure illusionary warriors from their past. These warriors appear to be normal warriors, outfitted in an ancient style with bows and swords. Illusionary Warriors can only be used by a character with the Arcane Background (Psionics).

When invoked, a number of warriors appear specified by the character when he spends his Power Points. They are loyal to the caster, but behave in all ways as normal, living warriors. With a success, they remain present for up to an hour; with a raise, they remain for an entire day. Warriors disappear if injured, leaving no trace of their existence; they can also be dismissed at any time by the one who created them. If power points are available, more warriors can be summoned, but a character may never have more warriors in play than he has potential Power Points. Thus, a character who starts with 10 Power Points can never have more than 10 warriors in play at any time.

Remote Rykor Control
Rank: Novice
Power Points: 1
Range: Smarts
Duration: 1/1 per round
Trappings: steely gaze

This power is only available to Kaldanes. Through sheer focus of will, a powerful kaldane can control a rykor without being mounted on it, controlling its actions as if it were riding it. The target rykor must remain in sight at all times, and cannot be ridden by another kaldane. The power can still be used if the kaldane is riding a different rykor, but this does not give any extra actions – the kaldane can either act with its mount or act with its remotely controlled rykor, but not both in a single turn.
