Aberrant RPG Mega-Attribute Enhancement: Computation (Mega-Intelligence)
Prerequisites: Mega-Intelligence 6+, Data Analyst and Eidetic Memory enhancements.
Some researchers into human intelligence have declared it to be nothing more than pattern matching and memory. The capabilities of some Mega-Intelligent novas lends credence to this idea, as they have taken the human talent for pattern matching to unbelivable new heights. When it comes to understanding the past, present and possible futures of a subject - be it a single being or the entire world - they have few equals.

System: This enhancement lets the nova chart the course of a chosen subject, regardless of whether it's a single person, an event or a group of any size up to and including entire civilizations and universes. Unless the nova has some paranormal means of accessing the information required, the nova will have to do research on the subject in question in order to perform these feats. The quality of the research materials is also a factor, as low-quality records will impose a difficulty penalty of the Storyteller's choosing on the nova's Intelligence rolls for using this enhancement.

This enhancement has the following three functions:

Evaluation: This function lets the nova determine the present state of the subject with an Intelligence roll. One success grants the nova a basic idea of the subject's current state of affairs, while further successes will grant the nova increasingly detailed information on the hows and whys of the subject's circumstances. The nova can also roll Intelligence as an automatic action to notice anything about the subject that's worth examining (in the Storyteller's opinion) with either of the Extrapolation or Retrospection functions.

Retrospection: The nova can make an Intelligence roll to assess the history of the subject, along with determining the major factors in the subject's past that have had long-term consequences. One success grants the nova a basic idea of the subject's history. Further successes will grant the nova increasingly detailed information on the subject's history as well as providing possible ways to ensure or prevent other such subjects from either suffering those consequences or coming to pass, as applicable.

Extrapolation: The nova can make an Intelligence roll to predict the future actions of or determine the future consequences of the subject, as applicable. One success grants the nova a basic idea of the results and long term effects of subject's future actions or consequences. Further successes will grant the nova increasingly detailed information on said future actions or consequences as well as providing possible ways to ensure or prevent them from happening.

This enhancement has no quantum point cost and is always on.
