Vocations

Standard Exploits

  • Exploit: Augment Dice Pool Result: for a dice pool result that inludes your Vocation trait die, you may either keep an extra die for your total or step up the effect die.
  • Exploit: Create a Asset: a Asset is a temporary d6 trait that represents a professional contact, a piece of equipment, or some kind of useful knowledge related to your Vocation. The Asset lasts until it is removed by someone or because it becomes no longer relevant to the narrative. Write down [Name of the Asset]: d6; you may add it as an additional die whenever the Asset is relevant to an action or reaction. How long it may take to create a particular Asset, and whether it can be done as part of an Action Scene or must be done in a Transition Scene is left to common sense and GM's discretion.
  • Exploit: Affect Complications: if there is a Complication that your Vocation pertains to, you can step it down or remove it from play by describing how your expertise allows you to overcome the Complication. If the Complication is a d6 eliminate it, if it is d8 or higher step it down. Alternately, if you can justify how your Vocation applies, you may create a d6 Complication and put it into play or step up an existing Complication.

Eldritch [  ][  ]

The Eldritch Vocation allows the following special Exploits:

  • Exploit: If your Eldritch Vocation die rolls a 1 you may change the die to a 4; it does not count as an opportunity if you do (you should use a easily identifiable die to represent your Eldritch Vocation when adding it to a dice pool if you intend to use this option).
  • Exploit: You may double your Psyche trait on an action or reaction in a dice pool that includes at least one of your Eldritch Ability traits.
  • Exploit: When using an Eldritch Ability trait during a Transition Scene you may treat that Ability trait as being 1 step higher for one action, allowing you to justify an action that is normally beyond your capability.

Socialite [  ][  ]

The Socialite Vocation allows the following special Exploits:

  • Exploit: You may demonstrate your superior social status sufficiently to gain invite or access to a social event or a person of importance, or otherwise establish yourself and impress other members of your social scene.
  • Exploit: You may step up or double Finesse or Awareness when acting or reacting in a social situation.
  • Exploit: During a Transition Scene you can create a social influence related d8 Asset by calling upon your personal social network.

Metropolitan [  ]

The Metropolitan Vocation allows the following special Exploits:

  • Exploit: During a Transition Scene you may find a place in the city for you and a small group to hang out in relative safety without unwanted attention...for a while.
  • Exploit: When offered multiple options to proceed while traversing a city or urban neighborhood, you can get a clue as to which one you should take to accomplish your current intent.
  • Exploit: Avoid being lost while in an urban area.

Skulker [  ]

The Skulker Vocation allows the following special Exploits:

  • Exploit: If you fail a roll to avoid detection or discovery, you may reroll.
  • Exploit: You may step up and double Finesse to conceal your presence, purpose, or underlying intent.
  • Exploit: If you are attempting to escape pursuit and are not currently being directly observed by a pursuer you may immediately exit the Scene and thus get away.

Socially Inconvenient Longevity

You love to be plugged into the high society scene of whatever city you are currently living in, but you've been doing it for going on four decades and it is becoming harder to conceal the fact that you have barely aged. Switching cities helps a bit, but encounters with those from your past are not entirely avoidable.

Goal
Reward

gain a Exploit invocation

The first time in a session when you become entangled with mundane authorities, a nosy journalist, or some other normie who has noticed your true age and is making a nuisance of themselves.

+1 Plot Point, gain a Exploit invocation

Briana is a descendant of a long line of white witches who for centuries have generally lived their unnaturally long lives while doing their best to protect their families, tribes, communities, villages, and towns from the depredations of evil or ill fortune. Often even in the face of superstitious persecution.

However Briana's mother was killed while trying to root out a den of vampires in London over four decades ago, and afterwards Briana sought a new life in the new world to put some time and distance between herself and her mother's death. Her tourist visa eventually ran out but Briana remained in the States, wandering from city to city. For the most part she lives a carefree life of whimsy, but from time to time she encounters various supernatural dangers. If possible she informs local Hunters, assists their Hunt as best she can without getting directly involved, and collects a finders fee from any resulting bounty; otherwise she notifies Section M and lets them deal with it.

Section M are aware of her illegal immigration status but have chosen to look the other way thus far; perhaps because while Briana may not be a front-line fighter in the war against supernatural evil, her intel has always been good.
