Each character has a unique ability that can be used once per game at any time. When a player declares they are using the ability, it immediately takes effect, and the current player must pause their turn to allow anyone to respond to it.

An Unfortunate Young Woman
Gertrude never wanted to be a psychic. She never wanted to burn down the orphanage either. Shadow did though.
Miss Gertrude Patricia Sloan was born Friday, October 13 under a blood moon and a fortuitous alignment of the planets, gifting her with the amazing ability to be quite terribly unfortunate. While other girls her age were learning the rhymes to jump rope, Gertrude was trying to convince Shadow that everything was just fine the way it was, not on fire.
If you hadn't guessed, Shadow is a tough sell. Gertrude still tries though.
Pyromania: Destroy 1 item.
World’s Greatest Psychic Pizza Boy
Harold believes the key to great service is knowing what your customer wants, as soon as they think it.
Have you ever had a hankering for pizza and gone to the phone, only to hear a ring at the doorbell and see a pizza boy standing there with exactly what you would have ordered? No? Well, you must live outside Harold's route, which is a shame. Really, you're missing out.
There are, no doubt, many pizza delivery legends, but Harold is the greatest.
Guaranteed Delivery: Only character abilities can affect your next thrown item.
Hobo. Street Prophet. Possible Wizard.
Ed’s seen the future, read the lifelines in the sidewalk cracks, read the love lines in the tread marks left by wet sneakers, watched how the pennies fall. If he looks strange wearing a banana rind under his nose, know that it’s only to keep aliens from sliding up his nostrils and into his brain. He knows when Atlantis will rise to take back the world and he knows when they’ll fix that pothole on Fountain Street. One’s coming too soon, the other not soon enough.
Forget your momma’s back, it’s the future breaking like so many sidewalk cracks. It’s written between the letters of the road signs. When will the world end? Yesterday. Tell your children. Time’s ill, in bed with the flu, and we’re all paying through the nose in paradoxes.
Don’t believe him? The government does. Men in black jackets pour spy-cams into his coin cup. Of course we’re being spied on; think real buskers sound that good? Check out the dollar bills, see how George Washington’s eyes follow you as you twitch.
Scrounge: Take 1 card from the discard pile and put it into your hand.
Must-Have Toy of Your Nightmares
This little robot is the hottest toy your child never wanted. RX-97’s sound effects include shrieks and moans that sound just like it’s possessed by a malevolent spirit, and its claws grip with an unearthly force!
RX-97 comes without batteries, but that's okay, it runs on the most eco-friendly fuel of all: fear and nightmares!
RX-97’s eyes glow and alternate colors, so you can know when it’s coming around the corner to get you. With so many features, RX-97 always has new ways to keep playing and playing and playing, even long after your child wants to stop.
You may be wondering, "how can I get away?" Oops, you can't! Instead try wondering, "how can I best help RX-97 plunge the world into darkness?"
Circuit Breaker: Change the target of the current thrown item.
Fortunes Told, Accuracy Guaranteed
Curator of antiques and organizer of psychic competitions, Myr is a… shopkeeper of many talents.
A long-time supporter of the local practitioners of the aetheric arts, Myr gathers fellow psychics to his store, Myr’s Antique Shoppe, where, during the day, he sells nearly curse-free curiosities for curiously-good prices.
Since all the participants at his competitions are psychic, there tends to be a lot of property damage and what could be called spontaneous arson. It's okay though, there are always plenty more curiosities in the shoppe.
It may seem strange, but it's tradition.
Eminent Domain: Search through the deck and put 1 item into your hand. Then shuffle the deck.
Your Love Connection to the Afterlife
Sebastian runs a successful business as an "aetherial romantic coordinator" or just a ghost dating service if you're boorish about it.
Sebastian can hook you (the ghoul, spirit, or apparition with a desire for earthly contact) up with the perfect host, guaranteed to suit your ectoplasmic tastes./p>
For the discerning human, perhaps you want to know what kind of benefit you can get. How does unearthly power sound? For a small transaction of time as a vessel, you too can have that power.
Rates quite affordable.///p>
Charm: Until the start of your next turn, no one can throw items at you. (Charm may only be initiated during your turn.)
Seer and Occasional Jazz Singer
Whether you're looking for some precognition, prognosticatin’, or a snappy tune, Claire's your gal. Not every psychic can support herself on her aetheric gifts entirely. Luckily, Claire has the kind of pipes that bring a house down and fill the soul with joy or sadness at the drop of a note.
Some of her lyrics are oddly audience-specific and her choruses repeat some truths better left unspoken, but at least they sound nice./p>
Prognosticate: Set the die on any face./p>
