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. Unless removed, the Asset lasts until the end of the next scene, which means you can use it more than once. 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 or less 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.

This time, when the Feds arrived to cover everything up, Beretta was in no mood to play along. Enough was enough! Virtually all of her college friends, her fiance, and now her parents were all dead...she demanded answers as to just what the hell was going on with the world that such things existed and the government was apparently covering it up. The two Feds, who she came to understand were Section M Agents, officially read Beretta in and gave her 'the Talk'.

In the days and weeks that followed Beretta used the money from her parents life insurance and eventually Bounty money she now knew she could claim from her three run ins with hostile supernaturals that died by her hand, Beretta invested in training and equipping herself and embarked on the life of a professional hunter of monsters and had some small successes.

Meanwhile, word apparently got around that some cheerleader who wasn't even 'in the know' had been wracking up kills, including a mono y mono vampire slaying. SAIC Harker reached out directly and after some vetting offered to take Beretta under his wing and train her up a bit if she'd join a small crew of vampire slayers he was putting together to root out some leeches infesting Los Angeles. Beretta jumped at the chance and got a lot of experience fast, running fast and loose and very under the radar with Harker's band of hitters.

However despite a lot of quiet successes, the entire enterprise ended badly with angry vampires overrunning a hidden Section M facility in Riverside California, the escape of several incarcerated supernaturals, great loss of life among tactical agents, substantial property damage, and ultimately the shuttering of the entire facility.

Despite that Beretta dodged any stink from the incident and accounted for herself very well, saving the life of the facility chief. She and one of the other members of the crew called Jack landed ok in the aftermath, joining up with a small group of up and coming hunters with a recent string of successes under their belt.

The next thing Beretta knew, she was caught up in some unlikely business scheme cooked up by Murgatroyd and Killroy, quietly offering a variety of esoteric and extermination services to those 'in the know' who wanted discreet or direct handling of their supernatural problems. Beretta isn't entirely on board with the whole idea...she wants to hunt and kill monsters, not run a lemonade stand. Still, they do seem to run afoul of a lot of supernatural shenanigans that need shooting. So for now she's waiting and seeing.
