Have you found the option to auto-subscribe to threads you've posted in? It helps a lot. I get where you're coming from, but that's one thing you can do to mitigate things from your end.

Writing precognition is like 😦


I'm just stealing bits and pieces from various franchises and mashing then together.
Precognitive and pseudo-precognitive abilities are certainly difficult to pull off. It helps if you give them some harsh limitation, or use some kind of RNG to emulate information fidelity.

Well I have a system

Finite amount of visions, X capacity with Y amount of visions restored per hour.

Surpassing the limit means she gets mentally burnt out/extreme mental fatigue.

I think she meant limitations as in the precognition isn't 100% accurate 100% of the time.

I dislike writing perfect precog tbh, which is why I'm going the whole "converging strands of fate" route. Leaves room for things.

Eh my precog has a limit on accuracy too, the further ahead Casey is looking into the future the less accurate altho I don't often use the looking far ahead one just the shorter version.

I rather just use it reasonably and logically\fairly then nerf it to a state that would end up with me not wanting to even have it anymore.

In all honesty, kinda how like you can have Jedi in Star Wars with out them abusing precog to be invincible :P

Jack once wrote precognition in a one time villain. He certainly no-sold but then again, it was a fairly melee advantage, as in, his sight beyond sight seemed to only work in close quarter combat scenarios, and at angles where his vision was unhindered.

I'd like to think I still sold with Dominance. Just because an attack doesn't work doesn't automatically mean it's a no-sell. He still got taken out in the end by people working around his ability, instead of just charging into it with the same strat and expecting me to eventually sell it working.

Dominus wasn't op or underselling/noselly, he was just tough as an event boss should be.

Quite the reverse. It was more I who thought you wanted others to sell, which annoyed me at the time. Though as I learnt later, you did sell rather well.
