[Tongue-In-Cheek] [Verbal]

Your muttering helps you concentrate.

Prerequisite: Intelligence 13

Benefit: You gain a Awesome bonus +4 to skills you make to build, repair, or study a technological device, provided that you (the player) can ad-lib a vaguely believable load of cockamammie nonsense before you make the roll. You can blither about “reversing the polarity of the neutron flow” or “rerouting the power conduits through the tertiary containment systems” or whatever. These essentially meaningless geek-mantras help you concentrate. This does not add any time to your skill check. You (the character) actually mumble while you work.
