A scenario I want to try: Mind reader vs Pre-cognitive.:
...can still biteNo, they only cancel each other out only when they're near each other, probably. That's how it works in Dune. It maintains dramatic tension by having the normally Omniscient Hero lose his powers partially and temporarily by bringing another prescient being to his planet, first accidentally and then on purpose.
A & B are both Precogs who are fighting. A predicts B's first move and prepares to respond with a countermove. B predicts A's countermove and prepares to alter his move to respond. A predicts B's new move and.. Both of them would be so busy predicting and altering theoretical moves that neither of them move, because both are lost in a world of possibilities. Eventually, one of them slips and the other wins.
Kind of covered! Though I don't think my latest spark would apply. I mean, being able to read a future the precog sees would imply the telepath's power extends to at least two senses in the sensory memory.
Irritable ReptilianThe Precog-fight thing was also done in Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn series. That was a fun read, since it was written from one of the precog's POV, heh... Far as I remember, precognition in that series functioned with the future showing up as a sort of ghost-overlay on reality; when two precogs threw down, the ghost-overlays went utterly nuts, with thousands of images of both fighters spraying out all over the place as the future became fluid. If you want to make it even more interesting, you could have had your precog have fought another precog in the past, and thus be absolutely baffled as this encounter is just as frustrating, but totally different.
I imagine that it would end up like a like game of chess.
Carpe by all means diem, but not all diem are worth carpe.
Wonderful to the GODDAMN future!!!My bumping this has nothing to do with the fact that I started the thread. I just felt like it.
CitizenSolved by Star Trek TNG poker: Geordie has Xray eyes and knows everyone's cards versus Troii's telepathy. Ryker always wins because smugness is the mightiest power.
What if there were no hypothetical questions? There are 10 kinds of people: those who understand Binary and those who don't.
Wonderful to the GODDAMN future!!!I thought Troi was only Empathic and not fully telepathic, though I do recall a few times when she could receive messages.
Wonderful to the GODDAMN future!!!Not yet. It might be a long while. Truthfully, right now it's just something hypothetical that I might do later. And I can't even say when it will happen.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
