PostSubject: Psychic: Decipher    Fri Jul 02, 2010 3:44 pm

Decipher is the power of the mind to take in and analyse information that it is presented with. With a but a touch or hearing the psychic can absorb any data in various formats and decipher its meaning. Language barriers no more, hidden codes are seen for what they really are. Entire volumes of information are absorbed at the speed of thought.

This is restricted to mental actions, this can include a mental psychic power or the contemplation of some problem. If the psychic is using all actions to solve a problem, he has  separate dice pools to draw from for each action. These actions happen at the same time, as determined by the initiative rating of the character.
