Transcedant (Sense) Method
Cost: 5m, 1w Duration: One Scene Type: Simple Minimum Ability: 5 Minimum Essence: 3 Prerequisite Charms: Unsurpassed (Sense) Discipline
The ultimate expression of sensory acuity, this charm allows the Solar to hone one set of senses to Perfection.
If chosen for Sight the Solar sees, without a roll, anything within Essence x 10 miles. This ignores all restrictions to line of sight and cover so long as from some angle the object may be viewed. This pierces illusions, allows the user to view essence, and shows the Solar all dematerialized and invisible beings and objects.
If chosen for Hearing & Touch the Solar hears, without a roll, anything. From the sound of grass growing to the sandpaper like roughness of a sheet of glass the Solar does not miss a single detail. She may feel and hear anything within Essence x 10 miles as if it were caressing her fingertips or whispered in her ear. As Sight above this defeats illusions and allows perception of immaterial beings as a rustle upon the winds of essence, and allows the "viewing" of essence as an incredible caress of warmth upon her body.
If chosen for Scent & Taste the Solar tastes/scents anything, without a roll, within his Essence x 10 miles. This allows the Solar to make precise deductions of composition down to the smallest detail, and identification of a single drop of sweat in a room a thousand years unoccupied. This ability mitigates the need to roll for any Survivial rolls for tracking. Like Sight above it counters all illusions and scents the ephemeral bodies of the immaterial and the sweet tastes of essence flows.
