Effects: Retrocognition gives a para-psychic the ability to see past events in a location. By tuning into the etheric resonance of a place, he can see visions of occurrences. Inexperienced parapsychics can only see indistinct visions of the recent past, while those with more mastery can see weeks or years of events clearly. While the area in which a Retrocognitive para-psychic can sense such events is limited to 100 square feet, he can freely move around and sense events in different areas as long as the power is active. Retrocognitive para-psychics are aggressively recruited by law enforcement agencies. A para-psychic with this power who is not working is that way because of choice.

A Retrocognitive para-psychic’s sensitivity depends on his level of ability:

  • Student: You can see the recent past – about the last day. Your visions are hazy, however.
  • Novice: You can see the recent past – about the last day – clearly. You can also see into the last week, but your visions are hazy.
  • Adept: You can see into the last week clearly, and into the last year – though the visions are hazy.
  • Expert: You can see into the last year clearly, and into the last five years – though the visions are hazy.
  • Master: You can see into the last five years clearly. You can also see everything else that’s every occurred in that place, but the visions are hazy.

  • The para-psychic becomes totally oblivious to the present.
