I just noticed you still do not have a Faction Edge.

You do not require one, but it is super useful.

Phase World - The Remorseless Game Master Bennies 5; Mission: Get Revenge on Durrack
  • +6 Players
    +1 Sidekicks (Not counting Rust Bucket who is temporary out of play)
    -2 Benny for Special Ritual & Extra Effect
    +2 Jokers in turn 1 of Big Battle
    +1 Joker again
    -1 reroll not to fly away
    -1 Reroll to hit Sa'Maku in vengeance
    -1 Reroll to damage Sa'Maku in vengeance
    -1 New Card for Debrek to go before Thissok

Nightbane Game Master Bennies 4, Murder a man at his place of business]

Code: Select all

[b][color=#BF0000]Initiative without rerolls.
I will roll 1d56 for each of your initiative cards. I do not reroll duplicates, instead there are 2 extra Joker positions.
[list][*][b]Quick rerolls 16 or less[/b]
[*][b]Quickness with a Raise rerolls 24 or less (SWD only)[/b]
[*]53, 54, 55, 56 are considered Jokers
[*]Cards divisible by 4 are considered Clubs for hindrances affected by Clubs (excepting 56 which is a joker).[/list][/color][/b]

  • 2D6 EFFECT
    2 Catastrophe: Something goes terribly wrong. The GM must decide what, but some ideas are a new and permanent Minor Hindrance, the inability to use powers for several days, or an explosion of some sort. The backlash should be thematic if possible. If the hero tampers with dark forces for his abilities, for example, he might become corrupted or summon something sinister into the world. If he’s a weird scientist the device might explode for 3d6 damage in a Medium Blast Template, or he might develop a Quirk, Phobia, or other “madness.”

    3 Backfire: The power succeeds as with a raise but affects a different target with the worst possible results. A bolt hits a random friend, boost Trait increases an enemy’s skill or attribute, etc. If there’s no likely target, he’s Stunned instead. If the power has a Duration other than Instant, it lasts its full term and can only be negated by dispel (the caster can’t voluntarily end it herself).

    4–5 Short Circuit: The power fails but the Power Points allocated to it are spent, along with an additional 1d6 Power Points.

    6–8 Stunned: The caster is Stunned (see page 106). She subtracts 2 from arcane skill rolls for the rest of the encounter (the penalty remains –2 even if she gets this result again).

    9–10 Overload: The character’s synapses crackle and overload with power. He takes 2d6 damage plus the cost of the power in Power Points, including any Power Modifiers the player declared.

    11 Fatigue: The character suffers Fatigue.

    12 Overcharge: The power draws ambient energy from the air, automatically succeeding against the target with a raise and costing the caster no Power Points!

Washington State

Depending on your point of view, it was either stupidity late or god awfully early.

Morri couldn't quite make up her mind on the matter, either way she didn't particularly relish the prospect of travelling for the next day or so to get home to the British Isles. They'd been visiting family in the States and her father was now driving the hire car to the airport to catch their connecting flight to the east coast airport for the British Airways flight home. With another hour's worth of driving still ahead of them, Morri had taken the opportunity to snooze but even with the radio turned down she found it hard to completely nod off. Though her sister Morgana, Morg for short, appeared to have no such trouble much to Morri's envy.

Suddenly their father cursed loudly.

The brakes screeched and the car swerved as their father wrestled with the steering wheel, their mother screamed before a sickening thump was heard and the car came to a standstill. They sat for a moment with the engine ticking over and the radio still playing, Morri and her sister exchanged looks but were too shaken to say anything. After a moment or two, their father muttered about possibly hitting something and climbed out of the car to investigate. Their mother tried giving them a reassuring smile, which rapidly turned to a frown when a cry rang out. Alarm bells started ringing in Morri's head and she went to warn her mother as she started opening her door, an instant later something slammed into the side of the car and shoved it across the road.

Before she'd even realise what she was doing, Morri found herself out of the car and running across the road. She couldn't quite explain it but she felt an urge compelling her to do so, something in her being was making her do whatever she was doing. She pulled up short as...something lunged out of the darkness and then strangely faltered for a moment with a puzzled look upon it's face. The creature appeared to shrink as a curious and weird feeling overcame Morri, she felt....different and her perception of the world had seemingly shifted.

Morri felt a boiling rage inside of her as she strode forward, the creature scrabbling back in surprise as Morri barred her teeth and flashed her claws. A deep growl sounded in her throat before she leapt forward and anything went black as a red mist descended....

Morri awoke.

She was laying in a field, her clothes dirtied and torn. She was splattered from head to foot with what she presumed, she hoped, was mud. The eastern sky was beginning to lighten as the night began to yield to the forthcoming dawn, the pale blue sky backlighting a few fluffy clouds. She became aware of some people clustered round her, though there was something about them that she couldn't quite place her finger on. Though as she stirred, she heard one of them muttered. "Christ, this one's alive."

"Best get you some place safe." The voice continued as Morri felt a number of hands help her up and half-carry her to a van waiting on a nearby road. Try as she might she couldn't see any sign of her family or the hire car, plus she found that no words would come to her and her head felt like a boiling cauldron of confusion and bafflement.
