    Magic: The classical control and manipulation of the elements and the aether. Fire, water, earth, wood, plant, ice, air, wind, lightning, metal and aether. It is the most versatile of the powers, and covers the broadest set of possibilities, plus it is the most common of the powers that exist in the Steamline Chronicles. Powerlevel wise, a 100 in magic (or in any of the powers) is a large building buster at the absolute most. Nothing beyond that.

    Aether is the manipulation of the unseen forces. These are the ones that aid in transmutation, illusions, healing, etc.....

    While magic seems very powerful, it has disadvantages. It must be done with gestures, and sometimes words or phrases, plus there is a build up. Magic generally is not instantaneous.

    Psychic: The rarest and most dangerous of the three powers, it covers mind control, empathy, post and pre cognition, levitation, telekinesis, and other kinesis based powers. It is the rarest ability of the three, but due to the nature of it (all mental), it is the hardest to defend against and the hardest to train and establish.

    However, despite its power, its main disadvantage is that it requires focus and thus, psychic assualts can be broken easily if the person using the power isn't exteremly focused.

    Ki/Chi: The middle-ground power. Not common, not rare. Ki is the manipulation of the life force within oneself. This can be manifested in the form of energy blasts, limited flight, physical enhancement, better regeneration, etc...pretty much what yo usee in all those martial arts movies.

    Ki/Chi exists in all living things, and all living things can learn to manifest ki/chi through training and hardwork. By this, that means ki/chi is the most useful as all have the potential to do it, though only those who train for it can achieve it.

    Steamtech: The cutting-edge tech of the era. This covers weaponry of a tech-based kind, prostetic limbs (similiar to FullMetal Alchemist level prostetics), and anything else of this sort. I'm fairly lentient when it comes to how you want to create/base your tech so you have some freedom.

    If any questions are had, feel free to ask.
    So despite Psychics being the most rare form, how many of us plan to be one?

    Mhm. Her power'll be the power of distraction.

    Psychics tend to be pretty rare in SHRs, with the exception of this one due to it being a bit more this time around.

    To answer your question: although it depends on which character concept I want to work with, I probably will not be one.

    *Also raises hand* It'll be understated though, I think.

    I like my chances against a comic book :P I may change, since I tend to do that a lot before the game starts.

    I suppose you can make a good argument for not being able to use it on herself directly.

    Unfortunately, it's already been alluded to being used on herself in that fashion.

    She's not boosting stats she doesn't have; that's her using Yonai's Blessing on herself, while in the Dance of Fiere and Raine- which let's her use Fire and Water abilities as if her score in either was equal to the sum of her scores in both. Since she has 40 points in Fire and 40 points in Water, she would therefore have 80 points to transfer through using the ability.

    The problem I had was that I didn't know Irie had added Enhancer points - I see she has, so all is well. Carry on!

    If I was going to play in the new RPG I'd choose Agatha Heterodyne, as my character, only she's already taken.
