"He who sees his own doom can better avoid its path.
He who sees the doom of others can deliver it."
― Eldrad Ulthran (Warhammer 40,000)

The power to perceive the future. Sub-power of Chrono Vision. Variation of Extrasensory Perception. Opposite to Retrocognition. Not to be confused with Event Experiencing and Clairvoyance.

Also Called

  • Antecognition
  • Foresight
  • Future Evocation/Prediction/Sight/Vision
  • Futurist
  • Fortunetelling
  • Premonitions
  • Prophetic Visions

Capabilities

Users can foresee possible futures and observe what may happen. As knowledge of the future invariably causes that future to change, visions of the future are subject to frequent shifting. While not being able to select futures or travel through time, these visions may assist in possible courses of action.

Universe Differences

Some visions may be set in stone whether or not you see them, others may happen only if the players select a certain course of action. This depends mainly on whether or not users are viewing Destiny or Probability.
