Antennas to Heaven
Supernal Artifact: the Astral Antenna
Activation: Spend an hour priming the Antenna with specific High Speech commands and calibrate it to the proper effect (including adjustable spell factors). Once calibrated, it can be commanded to cease a given known effect, cease all active effects, or precisely repeat the last effect used, with an instant action instead of the hour-long priming. Awakened with the High Speech Merit can generally activate the Antenna without a roll. Users without the High Speech Merit must roll Presence + Occult in order to mimic the specific ritual chanting required for each specific activation. This means that the Antenna can be used by characters who aren’t Awakened.
