New GURPS Ability: Omnicontact

Omnicontact
20 ponts/level


You know people everywhere. Once per session per level of this ability (if the GM permits multiple levels), you can declare that you have a nearby Contact. The GM must approve the Contact (no saying, "I just so happen to be best friends with the leader of the bad guys, so I ask him nicely to stop") but should take your needs into account for anything short of derailing the campaign.

Decide how high-ranking (effective skill) the Contact is when you use this ability; this affects their reliability. A skill-15 Contact is Completely Reliable. A skill-18 Contact is Usually Reliable. And a skill-21 Contact is Somewhat Reliable.

Statistics: Wild Talent (Wild Ability Only, +0%) [20]; Special Effect: Based on Contacts instead of power abilities.

Refplace: Nice, here is a slightly different build

Something similar I sent in for Pyramid last year.
Fast Rapport
22 points
You have a one use Contact up to 7 points in cost between Skill and Reliability, since Frequency would be Constant. This could be based on extreme social skills, luck, or even mind control, add Retension if you want to keep the contact. Optionally the GM may let you roleplay it out without needing the Retension enhancement. Contacts purchased this way may have different stats, especially Frequency. Statistics: Wild Talent (Accessibility, Contacts Only. -20%; Focused (Social Abilities Only), -20%; Wild Ability, +50%) [22].

Great minds think alike. And I just caught a typo; I figured Wild Ability Only at +0%, not +50%.

I was wondering about that and figured you just put in other limitations not in evidence.
I think you gave me the value for the ones I used. Initially I just had Focused.
Since it will never get its shot in Pyramid this thread seemed like a good place for it.

Off topic but great book released today. Nice to see something from you in GURPS again!
