Trappings

Intellectus [Clairvoyance] (3+ PPE/ISP) [Seasoned]
Range: Varies
Duration: 3 (1/round)
Trapping: Allows awareness of anything happening in the Dinosaur Swamps. Effect is limited to the swamps.
Effect
Clairvoyance allows the caster to sense people, places, and things outside of normal perception. The Range varies depending on the Arcane skill roll. A success gives the caster a Range equal to her Spirit × 10 in miles, and a raise increases that to Spirit × 100 miles. Walls, doors, and other barriers do not hamper clairvoyance in any way, though magical barriers may block it at the GM’s discretion. While it’s active, the user of this power can shift the point of observation to anywhere within her Range as a free action.
When using clairvoyance, the caster chooses a single sense (usually sight) to project. For each additional 1 PP she spends at casting, she may add an additional sense; this does not affect maintenance costs.

Background

An alien sun
Warm but forever cold
Never to shine on
Everwall’s breadth
Or southern seas

The Storm Forest of Shaintair is known for its weather, but never a storm like the one that separated the druidic acolyte Norona from his family forever. The three moons, Unidar, Diadar, and Lianar were at the peek of their fullness bringing deep magic to the land and with it, a magic fueled storm. The trees bent and nearly broke as tendrils of blue energy arced across the night sky. Norona and his family huddled in their hut, sheltering from the storm when one of the tendrils struck them. Mother and father faded from sight. Sister and brother torn from each other.

When he awoke, alone, the next morning Norona was in an unfamiliar forest with trees and creatures like nothing he had seen in his highland home. Yet, he also felt a strong connection to the land. He quickly learned to survive in this savage wilderness, drawing on the strange elemental powers of this new land. He set himself to study and learn, to find a way back to his home, to his family.

With no family of his own, Norona found comfort in the creatures of the earth often preferring their company to those of the more settled human communities. Nonetheless, his searching took him across the continent to seek counsel from scholars in Lazlo, Kingsdale, even the Federation of Magic. Yet, none offered a glimpse of home.

Settled in his lot Norona set himself to make his new home a better place. During his travels he helped as many people as he could, making contacts throughout the Domain of Man. This desire to help is what eventually drew him to the Tomorrow Legion.

7 - Blood Is Thicker. When all else fails, there’s always family. Then again, for some, the loss of a family member is the driving force for what they do. This result directly connects your hero’s story to her relationship with one or more family members, or perhaps to the loss of her family in this savage, terrible world. Somehow, joining the Legion is a part of it all.

Adventure Cards
Peace - "Your hero is able to improve the attitude of a group in an encounter, perhaps by recognizing someone in the crowd, showing respect, or offering a bribe. It doesn’t work on true enemies—only
“neutrals” who happen to cross paths with your party."

Folk Hero - "Play after you save a group of people from dire circumstances. The community adopts you and your party as local heroes, and you can always find aid there."

Parley - "All characters cease fighting and listen to the hero speak for at least 30 seconds. Others may only take defensive actions during this time. This has no effect on beasts and other creatures that cannot understand the speaker."

Adrenaline Surge - "Your hero gets an additional and immediate turn (including new movement)."
