Obfuscate: Deceive the Machine

by: Reno Camilani A Legacy Article from Sanguinus Curae

Obfuscate Level Six Variant

In millennia past, Obfuscate has been used to fool others into believing they see a blank spot where there's actually a Kindred. With the advent of technology, it's become more and more difficult for Kindred to sneak into guarded areas. While once they could pass mortal guards with impunity, now they're subject to detection with satellite surveillance, motion detectors, ultraviolet spectrometers, and all sorts of other fancy devices. The Cainites of old need new tricks, and one of these tricks is Deceive the Machine. Using this power renders a vampire invisible to electronic devices. All electronic devices. Video cameras, metal detectors, phone taps, everything. Even electronic weighing devices won't register the Kindred's presence. Note that this power doesn't make a Kindred imperceptible to mortal eyes, but Deceive the Machine may be used in tandem with other Obfuscate powers.

System: Spend a blood point and roll Wits + Stealth (difficulty 7). Success means that the character is immune to electronic surveillance for the rest of the scene (or until the Kindred shuts off the power, whichever comes first).
