Built-in Potions

Telekinesis M feet for D seconds.

Causes you to be able to manipulate objects from a distance. You can open containers and interior doors, pick up objects, or operate switches from far away. The magnitude determines that maximum distance from which you can interact with objects.


  • This spell can be used to avoid trapped chests and doors. Instead of using Security and a probe, you can set the trap off from a distance, and then dodge the effects. This will not work on doors that transport between cells, however.
  • This spell effect is also useful for stealing objects for characters with low Sneak skill, in cases where getting close enough to take it normally would cause you to be seen.
  • The ability to interact with distant chests and doors also extends to on-touch Open and Lock spells and enchantments.
  • You can unlock doors and containers with a lockpick when under this effect.
