  • Inscrutability

    How would one go about modeling inscrutability? Someone mysterious and completely unreadable, like a Sphinx, or perhaps a god whose thoughts are beyond mortal minds. The only thing I can think of is Immunity 5 (mind reading) which would prevent telepaths from reading such a character's mind, but people can already be read without telepathy in the real non-superpowered world. What else would such an ability entail?

    Immunity (interaction skills) might be worth it. Or just a really really high Deception score with associated Advantages.

      If you wanted something really conceptual, maybe Concealment vs Insight, treating Insight as an "exotic" or "other" sense. Considering how commonly it can be used, I might consider pricing it like Visual.

        That would actually be it exactly. An immunity to interaction skills wasn't quite what I was going for, as interaction skills cover Persuasion/Intimidation/Deception. Thank you.
