your social stress capacity.
You have a semi-magical (“psychic”) talent for
catching glimpses of the past when you touch
- Echoes of the Past. You can perform an assessment
action on the history of a given object
that you are able to touch and contemplate.
This is a standard Investigation roll, but
instead of searching a physical location,
you are rifling through the situations that
the object has been exposed to in the past,
looking for glimpses of something significant.
Psychometry assessments are more difficult
than normal (Good or higher), so even with
a high roll, you may only get one aspect or
fact, and you may not receive any additional
context to help you make sense of it.
For example, a knife used as a murder
weapon might only give you fleeting images
from the scene, not enough to make a positive
ID on the killer; but you might see something
like A Butterfly Necklace that you can
tag later as a clue on a future roll.
Jaimie long ago got over being teased for always
having her nose in a book. She likes learning
things, and finding things out, and uncovering
secrets. Her ability to pick up the stories
of objects certainly helps her do that, but she’s
careful to make sure no one ever finds out she
can do that. Being strange is one thing; being a
freak is something else.
