Kinetic Communication: Time to use: One round to one minute. This is the ability of Lorrdians to communicate with one another through hand gestures, facial tics, and very subtle body movements. Unless the Lorrdian trying to convey is under direct observation, the difficulty is Very Easy. When a Lorrdian is under direct observation, the observer must roll a Perception check to notice that the Lorrdian is communicating a message; the difficulty in spotting the communication is the Lorrdians’s kinetic communication total. Individuals who know telekinetic conversation are considered fluent in that “language” and must make rolls to understand a message only when it is highly technical or detailed.
Body Language: Time to use: One round. Traditionally raised Lorrdians can interpret body gestures and movements and often tell a person’s disposition by their posture. Given enough time, a Lorrdian can get a reasonably accurate idea of a person’s emotional state. The difficulty is determined based on the target’s state of mind and how hard the target tries to conceal his or her emotional state. Based on the problems below, allow a Lorrdian character to make a body language or Perception roll. These difficulties should be modified based on several factors, including if the Lorrdian is familiar with the person’s culture, whether the person is attempting to conceal their feelings, or if they are using unfamiliar gestures or mannerisms.
Game Note: Difficulty Emotional State
Very Easy: Extremely intense state (rage, hate, intense sorrow, ecstatic).
Easy: Intense emotional state (agitation, anger, happiness).
Moderate: Moderate emotional state (one emotion is slightly significant over all others).
Difficult: Mild emotion or character is actively trying to hide emotional state (must make a willpower roll to hide emotion; base difficulty on the intensity
of emotion; Very Difficult for extremely intense feeling, Difficult for intense feeling, Moderate for moderate emotion, Easy for mild feeling, Very
Easy for very mild feeling).
Very Difficult: Very Mild emotion or character actively tries to hide emotional state.
Kinetic Communication: Lorrdians can communicate with one another using a language of subtle facial expressions, muscle ticks, and body
gestures. In game terms, this means that two Lorrdians who can see one another can surreptitiously communicate in total silence. This is a unique
ability because the language is so complex that only an individual raised entirely in the Lorrdian culture can learn the subtleties of the language.

To hide a naturally occurring odor his species produced, Ni wore a censer that dispensed Qatameric incense.
