-Basic Forceshifting Knowledge
You can use your Crafting Skill instead of Philosophy when rolling for a knowledge check dealing with information related to your Craft. However, you suffer a -1 penalty to these checks, due to your knowledge being practical rather than theoretical..
Lift (Basic Forceshifting Specialty)
You can move items without touching them. Compare the weight you wish to lift to the Vigor Tables. You cannot make fine manipulations — as if your invisible hand is wearing mittens.
You can use your Crafting as a block. Its precise nature depends on the Craft being used, as well as the Crafter’s own desires — a Flameshaper could bring up a wall of fire; a Dreamsharer could put up a mental block; a Bloodshifter could grow scales or bone. This can either be used as a static dodge equal to the degrees of success, or as Armor equal to ½ of the degrees of success, and can be enhanced to increase duration, etc. If this is a Shaping attack, you need a quantity of the desired element to work with — so you may need to use the Create [Element] Trapping first.
You can perform a maneuver, placing a temporary Aspect on a target. The nature of the Aspect depends on the Craft used — a Soulsharer might make a target “Happy,” a Flameshaper might set something “On Fire,” a Blightshifter might make something “Rotten.” This counts as a maneuver for all purposes: The Aspect becomes sticky if you gain spin on your check, and you gain one free tag on the Aspect placed.
Fine Manipulation (Advanced Forceshifting Specialty)
You can manipulate objects from a distance with a gentle touch — pick lock, play the piano, what have you.
You can use your Crafting as an attack. Its precise nature depends on the Craft being used, as well as the Crafter’s own desires — a Flameshaper could breathe fire, throw a fireball, a fiery whip, or more. This can either be used as a Dam 0 Attack or a Move Other action, and can be enhanced to increase Damage, affect multiple targets, etc. If you extend the duration, you need to focus on the attack during subsequent rounds, and can make only move actions. All Shaping and Shifting attacks cause Physical Stress. All Sharing attacks cause Composure Stress. If this is a Shaping attack, you need a quantity of the desired element to work with — so you may need to use the Create [Element] Trapping first.
