Paradigm Shift Logic

Paradigm Shift Logic

Cost: 4m, 1wp [1m]; Mins: Wits 4, Essence 3; Type: Supplemental
Keywords: Combo-OK, Internal
Duration: Instant
Prerequisite Charms: Strategic Planning Initiative

The enemies of the Alchemicals expect them to be rigid. Inflexible. As such, a Champion who seeks to deceive his foes must be prepared to shift his angle of attack. This is true in planning as much as in battle. This charm provides that flexibility, in the form of an extensive brute-force analysis revealing the countless ways a given outcome may be achieved. A planning roll supplemented by this charm is Unexpected, and enemies must succeed on a (Wits + Investigation) roll at difficulty equal to the Alchemical’s (Wits + Essence) in order to target it with any effect that would Counter the Alchemical’s plan.

Submodules:

Stratagem Hardening Algorithm (Intelligence 5) This submodule extends the duration of Paradigm Shift Logic to Indefinite, allowing it to provide continuous protection against repeated or protracted attacks on the Alchemical’s plans.

Collective Reasoning System (4xp) This submodule extends Paradigm Shift Logic’s protection to all of a Champion’s Planning effects with a single activation. This combines fully with Stratagem Hardening Algorithm.
