Golden Bennies are something I learned about from Sean Patrick Fannon and latter when reading Shaintar. While not exactly the same as a Shaintar Golden Benny, I will have them in this game. Here is how they work.

A Golden Benny May
  • The golden Benny belongs to the player, not the character. So if you are in more than one of my games it goes with you.
  • Do anything a Benny can do with an additional +2 to the roll.
  • Allow you to reroll a Critical Failure.
  • Allow you to add +4 to any roll.
  • Allow you to soak all of the damage from a single attack.
  • Be Exchanged for a random adventure card
  • Be Exchanged for 2 regular bennies.
  • Allow some other narrative awesomeness you can talk the GM into.
  • Allow you to reroll a Critical Failure.

Wow Rob, that sounds so awesome. How can I get one?
You get a Golden Benny on Christmas, on your birthday, on your wedding day, loss of a loved one, or other unique days worth noting such as your mother in laws funeral.

The First Catch: Well there is always a Catch, and with the Golden Benny the catch is you can only ever have 1. Special Exceptions may be made if events fall withing a month of each other. For example if you are lucky enough to get married on Dec 23rd, have you mother in law die the day before christmass and your birthday is on Boxing Day I will not be a jerk, and will likely let you have two for up to 1 month.

The Second Catch: Turns out try as i might I have never been able to develop Psionic powers in real life. So i will not know any of these things that qualify you for a golden benny unless you tell me. So tell your GM if you qualify.

High Command: Your Birthday is Dec 8th. Please take the first Golden Benny of this game.

(Everyone Else, you may want to make sure you GM knows if something significant is happening in your life.)
