The ability to program your powers to work a certain way in and out of combat.

Also Called

  • Ability Programming


The user can create a set of instructions, i.e. a program that tells their powers what to do and how to perform certain tasks when certain conditions, whether they be physiological or otherwise, are met. The user creating offensive and defensive powers for example, can allow them to launch various types of attack patterns and movements that can cause all sorts of confusion on a battlefield. An example of a defense type program is a set of instructions that tell a power to act as 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.
