Emerald Meditation

Skill

Image souvenir-book-25.jpg
Description You know entirely too much about the band Emerald Gift. Perhaps with some other band, that knowledge wouldn't twist Eclipse and give you strange visions when you close your eyes, but you don't have the knowledge to back that up.
When Used
souvenir-book.jpg

Strange shapes and half-memories slip around at the back of your mind. You just need to bring them to the surface somehow.

Uses

Consumes Eclipse in your system in exchange for summoning various sketches. The cost of summoning increases each time you use it in a day, but resets at rollover. Other Etheric-type effects that can be used to power etheric techniques can also be used (see etheric for details). This skill and other Summoning Skills share the same counter for summoning costs.

Summon Cost Total cost

If you focus once, with enough energy of Etheric:

You focus on the images hiding in the back of your mind, pulling <one forward/them forward one at a time>. The next thing you know, you're staring down at <a sketch/some sketches>.

You're fairly sure you didn't draw <that/them>, but <it does/they all do> look awfully familiar.

You found: (one of items below)

You learned a new Technique: Channel Inspiration. (You get this rarely (if ever?) on your first couple summons, with increasing chance the more you do in a day. It doesn't seem to matter if your previous summons were from Emerald Meditation or other summoning skills.)

You've summoned <n> items today.

If you are not Etheric:

You're not really in the right state of mind for that right now.

If you do not have enough energy of Etheric to focus even once:

You don't feel up to doing that again right now.

Attempting to use one of the "inspiring" sketches while you have an "inspired" effect already active:

Your brain is still chewing on that last sketch. Looking at this one before you've figured it out is just going to give you a headache.
