  • Power Automating
  • Power Instructing


The user can specify instructions (program) for their powers of what to do and how to perform specific task. Each instruction is executed once specific conditions are met, for offense, defense, support, etc. Programs can be created by the user for launching a variety of different attack patterns and movements that can cause all sorts of confusion on a battlefield. An example of a defense program is a set of instruction for using a specific power to produce an automatic deflection shield.

The user can also use programs for mundane things such as: programming Telekinesis to clean dishes while you are preoccupied with other task or programming Fire Generation to start a fire inside of your grill every time you open the lid to it.
