K is for Knowledge Replication!

New Power: Knowledge Replication
Knowledge Replication, also known as Knowledge Absorption, allows you to replicate the learned knowledge and skills of others.

Knowledge Replication
You may instantly gain all the knowledge and skills possessed by another person within visual range. Make an Intellect or Knowledge Replication (whichever is higher) test against the target's Willpower. If you succeed, you gain access to all of the target's specialties, and you retain them for a number of pages equal to your power level in Knowledge Replication. The target still retains access to their specialties during the duration of the power. During random character generation, this power may be taken in place of Absorption.

Powers: Ability Boost (Intellect)
Standard: Rangeless 
  • Erase: The specialties you replicate from a target become simultaneously drained and therefore unavailable to that target. When your power duration expires, the knowledge you absorbed returns to the target.
  • Objects: You may instantly absorb the contained knowledge from an object such as a book, computer storage device, or ancient tablet or manuscript within visual range, and retain this knowledge for a number of pages equal to your power level in Knowledge Replication. The GM chooses the appropriate specialty or specialties, and whether or not they are at specialist, expert or mastery levels, depending on the object source.
  • Permanent: You retain the target's knowledge permanently.
Standard: Close Range, Stunt Only
