Electrokinesis

Compared to PSI, electrokinesis can be seen as almost the opposite in some ways or a ‘hyped up’ variant of the same concept depending on your point of view. Primarily PSI effects the electrical fields in subtle ways allowing ESP and telepathic style effects. Electrokinesis is more power over subtle dropping large charges of electrical current through electrical fields. Electrokinetics become a kind of ‘battery’ for electrical charges and can then expend energy from this battery in a variety of ways.

Electrokinetics require the ‘Electrokinesis’ Trait below:

Electrokinesis

Cost: 30 CP (level 1), 35 CP (Level 2)

The character has an altered brain structure and potential for their mind to exhibit intense control over their personal electrical field. The Character may purchase and learn Electrokinetic sleights. At level 1, the character may only use ek-chi slieghts. At level 2, the character may use both ek-chi and ek-gamma sleights.

Those with Electrokinesis suffer the same issues as other Psionics.

Their are also skills specific to EK:

EK Assault

EK Sense

Type: Active, Mental, EK

Linked Aptitude: INT

What it is: EK Sense is the use of ek to scan objects. Only characters with the electrokinesis trait may purchase this skill.

Specializations: By sleight

Netrunning

Type: Active, Mental, EK

Linked Aptitude: WIL

What it is: Cyber PSI is the use of EK to manipulate computers or actively penetrate their electrical processes. This skill is only available to characters with the electrokinesis trait.

When you use it: This is a more direct form of Mesh interaction that requires no technological means of connecting to a electrical or computerized system.

Specializations: By sleight

In addition to the ranges for PSI, EK adds ‘medium’ and ‘long’ ranges. Medium is around 50 feet (15 meters) and long is around 100 feet (30 meters), both of these act much like ‘Close’ range with simply greater reach. EK’s don’t gain ranged against other EK’s like PSI’s do however.

Sleights:

EK sleights sometimes overlap PSI sleights, but usually have distinctive differences.
