Kinetic Engagement: Having Kinetic Aptitude and/or kinetic capability – Powers, Skills/Traits, and Features using kinetic [Chi] energy. It is fundamentally the power of equilibrium in space and time to alter The Pattern. A character who takes on Kinetic Engagement as a path of perspective and development (to seek/petition for, acquire, and build up powers) is referred to as an Adaptate. The act of manifesting specific Kinetic Power/Capability using Chi (see hereafter) is referred to as Demonstrating. A permanent change in the score of this (or any) Aptitude triggers an Actuated Awareness.
Requirements: Adoption of a [Kinetic] related Primary Class and Primary Ability. * No Aptitude power can be exercised unless the character’s level is equal to the Aptitude rating. *
All benefits from previous measures are inherited.

Kinetic Energy: Chi > Chi allows a character to manipulate object, powers, and features based on kinetic bonds to The Pattern. To consciously and freely gain and use Chi, a character must have Essence and a Chi Well. Kinetic Aptitude provides a basic amount in a Chi Well, but Chi can be developed independent of it.
