Ramuron is unable to detect any concealed persons within the vicinity.Ramuron was a man of little import in Kitava's display. As oppulent, and effective as it was, all he had to do was just stay out of the way and let her do the politics. And that he could do just fine. Just had to keep his mouth shut. But even as he was within arms length of her, Ramuron wasn't hard to miss. He was tall and broad, made even larger by his armor, the heavy plates of white jade like the scales of a dragon, and fists and firearms by thick jade gauntlets. He seemed quite ready to get into a fight at a moments notice. But such was his unenviable job now.
Aside from giving Janhuren a simple nod of acknowledgement, Ramuron kept his focus on his surroundings. Beckoning the earth itself to betray those nearby. Every heartbeat, every breath, every minute movement, all traveled through the ground to him, painting a picture in his head as if he were a molehound seeking its dinner. The earth was his eyes. Leaving his own eyes free to seek out other threats.
It wasn't that he didn't trust Kendara, but he didn't trust Kendara. He had no doubt this Boroma, would want to keep the satrap safe, and plenty of reasons to. But all it takes is one assumption for Kitava to end up dead.
All-Encompassing Earth Sense
Prerequisite: Awareness 3
The Dragon-Blooded can sense the vibrations of a soldier taking a step as easily as a leaf falling from a branch.
Commit 1 mote. The Exalt automatically perceives a hidden danger or concealed character out to medium range as long as they are on the same surface, or no more than one range band above on structures or scenery resting on the ground, such as a roof or a tree branch.
If the target is hidden flawlessly, contest it with a roll off using Awareness. The Dragon-Blood gains double 8s on this roll. This may not sense threats which are airborne, waterborne or taking other measures to avoid moving across a solid service. Hearthmates within range may benefit from this enhanced perception.
"Of course, my lady Satrap". Such a report would be a formality, of course; the finances were well in hand when Ferela left to accompany Kitava to her post. She'd delegate that task to an underling, and take the time to reconnect with her networks of informants. Not that she expected anything needing her attention, but it was always worth being sure.Ferala, please prepare an updated report on Satrapial finances.
