Ability Sets

Psychic Kickboxer

Reflexes: d6
Unarmed: d8

SFX: Elusive: You may double Reflexes on reaction rolls; if you do remove the highest rolling die and include an additional die in your result.

SFX: Martial Artist: All opponents who react to your Melee or Unarmed actions must replace the highest die in their dice pool with a d4.

SFX: Unleashed: You may step up or double one of this Ability Set's traits for one action. If the action fails, add a die to the doom pool equal to the normal die rating of that Ability trait.

SFX: Find Weakness: Each opportunity offered by an opponent reacting to an attack made using one of this Ability Set's traits retroactively increases your result by three (3).

Limit: Activated: Shut down Find Weakness and Unleashed if stressed out, asleep, or unconscious. Recover Find Weakness and Unleashed when stress is recovered or you awake. If Ego Trauma is taken, shut down Find Weakness and Unleashed until Ego Trauma is recovered.

Limit: Supernatural Aura: You have a supernatural aura that is detectable by those with special senses. Gain one (1) Plot Point when this becomes a Complication for you.

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.

Athlete [  ][  ]

The Athlete Vocation allows the following special Exploits:

  • Exploit: You may step up or double Finesse for one action or reaction.
  • Exploit: You may regroup and get your head back in the game; step down your Body and Ego Stress.
  • Exploit: You may reroll your dice pool when attempting something where athleticism applies.

Dorothy got beat up as a kid. She was too cute, both the boys and the teachers paid her more attention and other girls resented it. And so it was that Dorothy discovered the security of a dojo and training to make the bullying stop. She discovered that she in fact had quite a knack for it, especially for kicking. It didn't happen overnight or in a single montage but she was advanced for her age, and eventually got to a point where the bullying ended abruptly after a couple of decisive little set-tos.

But martial arts quickly became about something other than fighting for Dorothy, it was the training itself that mattered, the pursuit of perfection. Her passion for kickboxing survived middle school, puberty, boyfriends, and the prom and she became a recognized master, won or placed in numerous tournaments, and developed into a truly capable all around combatant. Post-high school she deferred going to college despite her extremely high test scores to pursue a career in the professional fighting community with an interest in being in action movies...either as an actress or doing stunt work.

And then Dorothy's life took an unexpected turn when she survived a zombie outbreak on the set of a horror movie she had a supporting role in. Dorothy helped a team of honest-to-goodness "monster hunters" who showed up to contain the threat, kicking zombies apart and corralling panicing civilians away from danger. Afterwards she got a share of a "bounty", and received the quick version of how mundane reality is a big lie, etc. And as it turns out maybe Dorothy isn't 100% "normal" herself; according to one of the hunters she appears to be some kind of psychic savant and her exceptional martial arts skills are at least partially enhanced beyond what normal people are capable of. Life got weird fast, but Dorothy has always been adaptable and up for new challenges.
