Savvyhead Special:
If you and another character have sex, they automatically speak to you, as though they were a thing and you’d rolled a 10+, whether you have the move or not. The other player and the MC will answer your questions between them.

Otherwise, that move never works on people, only things.

Improvement: 5/5
Savvyhead Moves:
Things speak: whenever you handle or examine something interesting, roll+weird. On a hit, you can ask the MC questions. On a 10+, ask 3. On a 7-9, ask 1:

  • Who handled this last before me?
  • Who made this?
  • What strong emotions have been most recently nearby this?
  • What words have been said most recently nearby this?
  • What has been done most recently with this, or to this?
  • What’s wrong with this, and how might I fix it?
    Treat a miss as though you’ve opened your brain to the world’s psychic maelstrom and missed the roll.
    Reality’s fraying edge: some component of your workspace, or some arrangement of components, is uniquely receptive to the world’s psychic maelstrom (+augury). Choose and name it, or else leave it for the MC to reveal during play.
    Workspace: a garage, a junkyard of raw materials, a truck or van
