P Skills

P-Skills are broken into categories based around broad areas of utility. Note that a majority of P-Skills do not cost SP, and have limited combat utility; but exceptions do exist. P-Skills are unique in that they can be used even if a Persona is dormant.

Note that some of these abilities are ineffective against other Persona users. See below for details.

All P-Skills require a Half Action to use and have a range of 20m unless otherwise specified. P-Skills listed as sustained mean that the ability requires the user to sustain it and the power vanishes the moment the user ceases to sustain it. Sustaining is a free action.

Elemental

Name Description Time-span Cost
Dark Can reduce light. Really good for getting yourself lost going to the bathroom, but is much more useful trying to hide from mad stalkers. Sustained -
Electricity Can create little surges of electricity. Can probably jump-start small electric appliances, or shock someone when they shake your hand. Sustained -
Fire Can create heat in an object or create tiny flames slightly larger than a candle's flame. Has trivial uses ranging from lighting cigarettes to lighting candles to keeping your coffee warm, but can also be used to light fires if you're stuck in a forest and skipped survival class like a slacker. Sustained (fire operates naturally) -
Ice Can reduce heat in an object or create little icicles or ice cubes. Really good for keeping a drink cold or cooling down on a hot day. Sustained (ice operates naturally) -

Water Can make something damp, or can create water, about 50mls of it. How it emerges is up to you- as a small puddle, as a focused stream of water aimed at your little brother's eye, you name it. Sustained -
Wind Can create anything from a steady breeze to a sudden gust of wind. Can be used for flipping pages in a book, or carefully timed showers of cherry blossom petals, or to blow up a girl's skirt (if you're a pervert).
