Sociotard Posted April 27, 2005 Report Share Posted April 27, 2005 Two questions: 1) Hypnosis is pretty popular in many actiony TV shows and movies, and while not as powerful as its made out to be (because the target has to be willing), it has real world effects. Do you think Hypnosis should be permited in the average DC game? 2) Fifth edition writes it up with Mind Control, but does that handel all the applications? Or should it really be a multipower of some kind? Issues that raise this point: a) One of the most popular uses is "Go back to the night of April 3rd, at 9:00 PM. Where are you?", which seems like some kind of clairsentience build. Most real world hypnotists make their bread and butter with habit breaking commands like "Stop Smoking", which seems more like a mental transform c) A lot of the effects sound like they have some sort of advantage on them, like Hypnotizing the whole crowd (did it at my high school. Area of effect?) or "Whenever I say the word 'Astronomy' you will go into a deep sleep" (trigger) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
