Page 27

"In effect, Astral Projection gives the
character a form of Non-Corporealness (see below) with the
limitation that you must leave your physical body behind."

"The physical body and the Astral body share the same Hits and
Power, and have all of the same Abilities (even their personal
Gear is Astrally duplicated)."

Can an a character in Astral form use their Abilities?

If so, which Abilities are they permitted to use?

As per Non-Corporealness (p. 58): "They may not use any of their offensive Abilities upon or otherwise physically interact with corporeal targets while they’re non-corporeal."

That implies that abilities like Darkness Control, Cosmic Awareness, Weakness Detection, etc are legal. I have a player with Astral Projection and she would like to know if she can use her Cosmic Awareness while in Astral Form.

To clarify: offensive abilities are allthose listed in the table on p.15? Would a mental blast then be permitted to use as a non-corporeal character as it belongs to misc. abilities?

Yes, a character can use Cosmic Awareness while they're Astral because it's not an 'attack' in any way.

In this context 'offensive Abilities' are simply any Ability which is used as an attack. Mental Blasts are attacks, so the character would have to pay the extra fee to use them against corporeal targets while non-corporeal. Sorry for the confusion.
