Title: Unknowing psys
Post by: The Holy namelesskitty on September 25, 2010, 06:50:57 PM
Do you think that anyone might be a psy without knowing it, any guesses of who those people could be?
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: bugfartboy on September 25, 2010, 06:51:34 PM
We've already talked about Dayn maybe being an unknowing psi.

Post by: The Holy namelesskitty on September 25, 2010, 06:54:42 PM
But who else, I think Arman he just has a suspicious air about him.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: bugfartboy on September 25, 2010, 06:58:54 PM
Arman might. But he did see the guards in the hallway in the Tutorial levels. Or is he a Psy?
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: The Holy namelesskitty on September 25, 2010, 07:01:47 PM
I think that he thinks that it's his instinct, he just had a feeling which was his psy powers applying themselves without his knowing it.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys

Um, Arman is a psy, isn't he? He was able to contact the Main from afar to report some soldiers were returning to execute your parents in the last mission of the demo.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: The Holy namelesskitty on September 25, 2010, 07:21:56 PM
No, he has no psy attacks, if he knew it, he would use it in battle.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: cyso on September 25, 2010, 07:24:02 PM
Maybe he just hasn't had enough training to focus his thoughts in a way to form a good mind blast, sort of like the red capes in the psy academy. Maybe he could learn if he really wanted to, but likes using knifes better. Though it would be nice if he could be a dual psy/physical assassin...
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: The Holy namelesskitty on September 25, 2010, 07:26:49 PM
I don't know what you mean about him contacting the hero from afar. I think that if he knew he'd probably go to psy academy and learn.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: cyso on September 25, 2010, 07:41:41 PM
In the mission where you rescue the Main's parents, Arman contacts you to tell you that some troops were wising up. You then tell him to distract them. And, before you ask, Arman contacts you first. Maybe Arman is better with a knife, or maybe he just likes knifes.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: The Holy namelesskitty on September 25, 2010, 07:43:39 PM
He'd probably at least say something.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: cyso on September 25, 2010, 07:46:23 PM
Arman doesn't seem to say that much about himself.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: The Holy namelesskitty on September 25, 2010, 07:48:07 PM
Yeah, but that sort of thing is important.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: bugfartboy on September 25, 2010, 07:49:14 PM
Arman is quiet. He would keep a few tricks up his sleeve.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: The Holy namelesskitty on September 25, 2010, 07:51:03 PM
Hmmm, still that would be the sort of thing that he wouldn't keep to himself.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: bugfartboy on September 25, 2010, 07:52:59 PM
Maybe Craig has it planned out so that he's surrounded and he uses a mindblast on every one of the guards, stunning them so he can Leap out.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: The Holy namelesskitty on September 25, 2010, 07:54:46 PM
Maybe it happens on it's own he thought the hero was contacting him so he told the hero.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: bugfartboy on September 25, 2010, 07:56:47 PM
But Arman has already Contacted Duvalier before. He must be at least partially gifted.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: The Holy namelesskitty on September 25, 2010, 07:58:29 PM
He's gifted, but he thinks the hero's doing it all, that's my point.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: cyso on September 25, 2010, 08:03:22 PM
Arman uses moves like leap, which are psy aided moves, so he ought to know that he is gifted. He might not know just how gifted he is if he can contact the Main from wherever he was, though.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: The Holy namelesskitty on September 25, 2010, 08:11:15 PM
Leap is psy assisted?
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: cyso on September 25, 2010, 08:12:19 PM
If you read the description when Arman learns the move, it says that leap is psy assisted.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: The Holy namelesskitty on September 25, 2010, 08:14:07 PM
I didn't know that. Cool, then that's why I suspected him. Who else might be a psy?
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: cyso on September 25, 2010, 08:20:57 PM
Well, Griffin was stated to be gifted a few times and uses psy aided attacks (slash), and so does Rahel (split shot). I'm not quite sure whether Set does or not.   :P
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: bugfartboy on September 25, 2010, 08:25:32 PM
Set is a psy. It's a mental and kinetic sheild. And Malis is definately a Psi. It's a shadowlings nature.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: cyso on September 25, 2010, 08:30:26 PM
I was being a tad bit sarcastic with Set. I think everyone one your team is gifted to some degree.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: bugfartboy on September 25, 2010, 08:43:26 PM
Except maybe Luca when she was alive. I think being a Psi is part of being a Spirit.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: Dayn on September 26, 2010, 05:05:01 AM
We've already talked about Dayn maybe being an unknowing psi.
But I am!
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: bugfartboy on September 26, 2010, 06:12:43 AM
::) Not you. Game Dayn. :P
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: The Holy namelesskitty on September 26, 2010, 07:37:21 AM
maybe, but then wouldn't she know it.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: Dayn on September 26, 2010, 08:41:39 AM
::) Not you. Game Dayn. :P
And who's to say that's not me?
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: The Holy namelesskitty on September 26, 2010, 09:10:22 AM
because we mean the fictional character.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: bugfartboy on September 26, 2010, 09:45:12 AM
Exactly. What if Duvalier really wasn't a Psi but he and everyone else was convinced that he was to the point that everyone saw him use psi attacks when really he wasn't.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: The Holy namelesskitty on September 26, 2010, 09:51:38 AM
that wouldn't make much sense, because they also work.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: bugfartboy on September 26, 2010, 11:06:29 AM
But if everyone was utterly convinced that he was, their minds could cause the effect on themselves.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: cyso on September 26, 2010, 12:04:52 PM
How do you fake an attack like light bomb?
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: bugfartboy on September 26, 2010, 12:12:36 PM
I was just suggesting it. But want to know something?
Spoiler
I am a Psi
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: cyso on September 26, 2010, 12:21:53 PM
Anyways, anyone else you think could be a psy without knowing it? I think it would be funny if the other guy in the bar who is paranoid of psys turned out to be one. It could explain why he thought correctly that the main was a psy.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: bugfartboy on September 26, 2010, 12:26:54 PM
Ali the Incorrigable is at least good at defense when it comes to the Psi realm. That's why you can't read him.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: cyso on September 26, 2010, 12:32:05 PM
I was actually thinking about the other guy in the bar, but Ali probably is a psy, too.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: ArtDrake on September 26, 2010, 01:34:47 PM
What about someone from the Marid Clan camp? I think the boy might be a Psy.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: bugfartboy on September 26, 2010, 01:42:26 PM
What evidence do you have?
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: ArtDrake on September 26, 2010, 01:43:54 PM
I'm working on it.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: bugfartboy on September 26, 2010, 03:43:53 PM
Sure you are. Please don't make unsupported statements.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: The Holy namelesskitty on September 26, 2010, 05:40:06 PM
But this is entirely a stream of wild guesses, if he has a hunch that's good enough for me.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: ArtDrake on September 27, 2010, 12:59:21 PM
Don't worry; I'll only make another as soon as I can find something backing this one. Is this acceptable?

Anyway, he says: "Hey mister, why are you so pale?" Perhaps he's taking the opportunity to elusively scan Duvalier's mind...?
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: The Holy namelesskitty on September 28, 2010, 03:11:33 PM
I think that whit unknowing psys it all happens on its own.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: ArtDrake on September 28, 2010, 03:49:43 PM
Okay, but chew on this: a normal kid would be out and around playing with his friends, whereas this kid is close to his mom, whom he views as an authority and protective figure. Maybe subconsciously, he notices power in Duvalier?
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: The Holy namelesskitty on September 28, 2010, 04:13:00 PM
That's the point it happens but allhe feels is an intuition.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: Steelfist on December 26, 2010, 09:53:48 PM
The word you are looking for is latent, not unknowing, and it seems possible many people have latent psy powers, but would require training to focus it to the extent required to actually do anything with it. Maybe everyone could, but everyone needs training to bring it out, and only wealthy people can afford the training.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: ArtDrake on December 26, 2010, 10:18:30 PM
Well, shadowlings didn't seem to need training.
Title: Re: Unknowing psys
Post by: bugfartboy on December 26, 2010, 10:20:51 PM
That's because shadowlings are Psys by nature. They leanr to communicate by thought the same way we learn to communicate verbally.
