Auspex •••

A modern variant on Share the Senses developed by certain Anarch Tremere, this power lets a vampire borrow the eyes and ears of electronic devices. They can see what a camera sees, hear what a microphone hears, and even get information from stranger sensors, such as a motion detector or tripwire. However, they're limited to gathering information: they couldn't cause a camera to pan or zoom, for example, or force an automatic door to open or shut.

Like Share the Senses, this power normally requires line of sight to initiate. However, it can be used at any distance on a device specifically marked with the vampire's Blood. This marking requires one Rouse Check and lasts for one week from the time of application.

  • Cost: One or two Rouse Checks
  • Dice Pool: Resolve + Auspex
  • System: Make a Rouse Check and roll Resolve + Auspex; the difficulty depends on how well the user knows the system in question (one for a system they've painstakingly constructed by hand, three for an off-the-shelf webcam, five or six for a top-of-the-line military-grade SI network).

By default, this only affects a single device (a single camera, microphone, or other sensor). However, by making a second Rouse Check at the time of activation, the vampire can change their perceptions at will between any sensors connected to the same network.

  • Duration: One scene
