Every cruel deed, every death, every intentional act to hurt another resonates down into the Labyrinth and pleases the Neverborn, at least as much as creatures like them feel pleasure. Entering a semi-trance the Deathknight can tune herself to those vibrations and sense such deeds as they happen. Within a clearly defined area no larger then a city the Deathknight can immidiently make a Perception + Investigation roll at standard difficulty whenever someone takes an action to harm another(Harm as defined in Abyssals on page 153). Success means that she is aware of where the deed is happening and the apparant people involved. Successes over the threshold let her penetrate disguises, stealth or notice an act or trap that isn't immidiently dangerous but will cause harm later. The difficulty to notice such things is the successes made to hide the trouble. Things such as traps which while designed to hurt their purpose is not to hurt do not register for this charm. This charm requires much concentration halving all dice pools, aside from the one used for this charm, while the charm is active.
