Maneuver Celestial

Endurance Hunter

Inherent, Limit Break

You have trained your endurance to its full potential. Substitute your Maneuver for your Body when using Endurance, Hold Breath and other stamina-related stunts. These uses of Endurance Hunter are all Inherent abilities.

You can use this ability when pursuing or being pursued to drive your prey past their endurance. Make an opposed Maneuver check. On a success the target suffers one Hit from fatigue. On an outcome matching the target's Move, it suffers 2 Hits. This is nonlethal damage and cannot cause a Mortal Wound, but you can certainly kill the helpless creature.

None Celestial

Hybrid Race

Inherent

Select one Race other than human. You are a hybrid of human and the selected race. The GM might not allow hybrids with all races, check before making your selection. Someone with this feat is often called a half-X, where the X stands for the selected race.

  • You look like a hybrid between a human and your selected race and might be mistaken for either.
  • You can purchase the racial schticks of the selected race.
  • Note which attribute has the highest racial maximum for the selected race; you get to pick one if there is a tie. Your racial maximum for this attribute becomes 11.

Obsession

Inherent

You are obsessed with a specific craft, task or ability. Your obsession is a goal in itself, sometimes to your peril. You spend much time learning every variation and nuisance of this single ability. Obsession is prized in craftsmen and artists, and objects thus made sometimes even display wondrous magical enchantments, as appropriate to their nature.

Chose an area of specialization. This can be a skill, but also an area related to a part of several skills. Examples include gems, gardening, playing the lyre, explosives, rocketry, and so on.

When working in this field, after making a die roll, you can spend a Fortune point and roll 1d6 and add this to your Outcome. This additional die is not open-ended.

Throwback

Inherent

Select one Race Schtick; you learn this schtick. You do not become a halfbreed or otherwise have your looks or physical form changed except as required for the schtick to work.

You cannot take this schtick go learn a schtick you already know a second time, nor can you pick Throwback multiple times.

Know Dwarf

Long Life

Trigger Action (Combo)

You have lived a very long time. For each schtick you take in Long Life, you have lived about about a hundred years more than a typical character. You have great experience and have lived through many things, so whenever you are unsatisfied with a knowledge roll, you may roll again to represent things learnt during your long life. The GM should slant such information based on the time it is from. You can make a number of rerolls equal to your number of Long Life schtick picks.

Long Life has a drawback; you are less energetic and driven, causing you to do less in downtime.

Recon Dwarf

Earth Sense

Inherent

While in contact with the earth, you have a short range tremor sense. You can sense the extent of solid, anchored objects like the ground, floors, and walls within range. This gives you a mental map of the area, including spaces behind walls. You can also sense when anything touching these things moves, tough it is still possible to Sneak, normal obstruction modifiers do not apply. The sense has a range equal to your Mind.

None Dwarf

Obsession

Maneuver Elf

Grace

Basic Action

You can walk along any surface, even one that could not carry your weight, a distance equal to your Move. You are not deterred by vertical surfaces, narrow ledges, slack ropes and can even walk along a thin thread, spider web, or on soft snow. You cannot walk on inverted or liquid surfaces. This can be used to make you hard to spot because you are in positions where nobody would think to look for you, so you can Sneak as long as you can stay above your prey or otherwise in a blind spot they would not normally look.

After this action, you can stand still in a position that could not normally support you for the rest of the round, but must use Grace again if you wish to continue moving in such terrain.
