Core Technique- Mass Effect Field

The biotic may Commit Effort for the scene as a Main Action to direct their mass effect field toward an object or person within unaided visual range or with tactile contact with the biotic. The strength and precision of the force increases with the expertise of the biotic. This force isn’t responsive enough to be usable as a weapon without further refinement of technique, and cannot cause damage to living or mobile targets. If used to crush or harm immobile unliving objects, it does 1d6 damage per skill level of the biotic per round of focus.

A mass effect field can be maintained over multiple rounds without expending further actions, such as holding a metal platform in place under a group of allies, but the biotic cannot use this technique on a second object until they release the first.
