I'd rather be disreputable and happy than respectable and dead inside.

High Concept

MY NAME IS . . . Nic Woodbury. Short for Nicodemus, not Nicholas, but only my grandmother calls me that.

AND I AM . . . A freelancer.

Five Questions

WHAT'S BEEN KEEPING YOU AWAKE? The gig economy. It's hard to make ends meet without hustling every minute. I hold down three jobs - not that my family would consider them jobs - as a fast food delivery driver, ebay seller, and freelance essay writer, and it just about keeps a roof over my head. It's worth it to be free of their expectations.

WHAT JUST HAPPENED TO YOU? This is the scene right before the start of the game. This is your first solid brush with Nightmares.

WHAT'S ON THE SURFACE? When people look at you, what do they see? This is the mask you show the world.

WHAT LIES BENEATH? When people look at you, what DON'T they see? This is what lives under the mask.

WHAT IS YOUR PATH? Where are you headed? What do you want? What do you need? What will you do to get it?

Sixth Question

WHO ARE YOU DESCENDED FROM, AND WHAT WERE THEIR TALENTS? You are the direct descendant of a famous/infamous Awake. Who were they and what were their Exhaustion and Madness talents?


You have three points to divide between fight and flight responses. You can put all three in one and none in the other or two in one and one in the other.




Can Find Anything: I make a living finding things: addresses for deliveries, shortcuts, stuff people want, information. Stands to reason I'd be good at it by now.


Telekinesis: Does exactly what it says on the tin. Which I can throw at you with my mind.

[1-2 Dice] to pick up and move small loose items
[3-4 Dice] to pick up and move medium items (eg tear up street signs, street lamps, and cars and chuck them a couple blocks)
[5-6 Dice] to pick up and move large items (eg tear an entire tenement building up from the foundation and hurl it at the community center across town)
