I have a player that interested in the Spectra-Eye

What do you see the point of this. Can you see though walls with it via x-rays is their any limit to range.

Do think it give bonus to trap detection?


I read it has more of a detect that you could detect x-rays not that you project and see though matter? What your guys view.

It's an eye that gives a bunch of spectrums to see in. the point is to bypass various forms of concealment.

It does not give x-ray vision. but you can see heat through walls if they are warm enough to pick out. That said, you can still make out where people are, sinse it sees all forms of radiation, and even says you can see invisible beings that give off radiation. sinse all biological life has some radiation in it (that's what carbon dating is) due to radioative isotopes being incorprated into the body, the result is you can effectively see people through walls, yes. Likely as strange skeletal blobs.

as for range limit, as the powers don't list one, we have to assume normal line of sight.

GM's call as it dosn't have any cannonical bonus to it.

X ray vision, no.

See invisible,yes most of the time.

The +15% to Tracking is the only bonus.
