Aberrant RPG Mega-Attribute Enhancement: Spacetime Awareness (Mega-Perception)
Some novas have the capability to directly perceive the fabric of spacetime. Aside from allowing them to take note of any distortions of spacetime in their vicinity, this also lets them determine their own location in relation to a chosen origin point within their current universe. Such novas can also create tiny fluctuations in spacetime - commonly known as gravity waves - in order to communicate "verbally" with each other.

System: This enhancement has the following four functions.

Distortion Sense: The nova can detect local spacetime distortions at a range of (Perception + Mega-Perception x 20) meters with an Awareness roll. This allows the nova to detect the use of any powers that affect space, time & gravity. The nova can also perceive gravity waves, allowing him to receive gravity wave communications and sense any solid objects within range solely by their mass. Use of the Gravity Contol power can also be detected with this.

Teleport/Warp Detection: The nova can automatically sense the use of the Teleport and Warp powers, provided that either of the subject's origin or destination points is within range (Perception + Mega-Perception x 20 meters). The nova can also spend 1 quantum point to determine the location of the out-of-range coordinate point in the case of long-range teleports and warps, with each success past the first granting increasingly precise information on that location.

Gravity Wave Communication: The nova can communicate using weak gravity waves by spending 1 quantum point to activate this capability for a scene. As gravity waves are not hindered at all by water or solid objects, it can be very handy in situations where the nova would otherwise be incommunicado. This form of communication is limited to speech, but can only be received by novas who either possess this enhancement or have the Gravity Control power. Intense gravitational flux can disrupt gravity wave communication, which will typically be created on Nova Age Earth only by novas with the Gravity Control power. In space, such interference is provided by hazards such as neutron stars, pulsars and black holes. The nova's communication range is (Perception + Mega-Perception x 10 kilometers).

Location Sense: The nova will always know his own current location in relation to a chosen origin point within his current universe. This grants a bonus of +3 dice on rolls for the Navigation ability and the Teleport & Warp quantum powers.

This enhancement has no quantum point cost except where noted above.
