    That mystical swirling of multicolored leaves as they dance in the air, that fresh fall smell, the perfect weather that makes you feel so very alive. You can almost forget that you're watching dead tissue accumulate as winter claims the world and floods it with the calming scent of death.

Your skin toughening, or being able to run substantially further without tiring. By thursday some Russian guy was on the news for finally curing cancer... with a touch. Soon someone else was seen flying over the Nile River. Seeing the extraordinary possibility you did the only logical thing.

    Going onto the internet you began looking around and found a blog suggesting some of these new superheroes to meet up and form a group. You may have been interested, or may have shrugged it off, but by saturday the tone of the evening news had darkened. The government had decided to take a more active role, wrapping legislation into it in order to mitigate the growing crime spike. Licensing was given at a high cost to select security firms to legally hire these "gifted" individuals, and in exchange for rounding up all the unlicensed "gifted" individuals they would offer licensing for a larger "gifted" staff. It was free hunting on "super-menaces" as the news was beginning to call them, and it swiftly became apparent that joining into one of these groups could only help. You agreed, you'd all meet in Hurley's Pizzeria at 8PM sharp in the corner table near the fake fire. It might even be wise to go into hiding for a bit until this all blows over.

    Hurley was a reckless and rash man who opened a pizzeria just after high school with the death of his parents, and has run ever since.

    Hold on, can I find someone's name occupation and one personal piece of information from a roll?

    Yeah, that's the parlour trick, ask him to pick out a customer and use my powers on him or her.

    Knowledge and Gather Information checks:

    Gather Information involves asking people about gossip etc. or at least checking the internet.
    In other words, if we are the only people who know about our powers, you need to ask us. ... if there is a dozen people in the world (counting some with information gathering powers or maybe some coincidental witnesses) it would be a DC around 30-35...
    If we were famous, it would be a different matter, but as far as I remember we have powers since last tuesday (less than a week?).

    Knowledge: Again, it is based on how can you access the information, but DC 10 is probably simply googling someone's name. It might even not even lead to Facebook account, if you can't narrow it down. If you can, you would get typical Facebook info.
    Not sure about others, but my character didn't write on facebook about getting his powers...

    About high checks (20-25) it is hard to tell... but it is still hard to get info, when we are the only available source of it. (Unless you have telepathy)

    In essence gather info gives the type of info that you could get asking around. If you ask around you wouldn't hear anyone saying these folks have powers, only things like that "that darned boy still ain't back home yet."

    Oh yeah, and necrotic, ruling teleport medium shadows, you can't use your own shadow or anything you're taking with you, so assuming you did so into a shadowy area of the pizzeria. After all in this game it's teleporting from that'll be important, not really teleporting to.
