Wastes Full of Lightning


Rhyme the Touchsone


Woman, survival wear, weather-beaten face, caring eyes, solid body. Visually, she's a well-built woman with the physique of a laborer, and though she's young yet, not quite thirty, laugh lines mark her cheeks. Her clothing is generally simple and practical, though she makes a respectable effort to shake the dust off outside, and she doesn't mind wearing something more comfortable when appropriate. She just often... doesn't bother.

Visionary: when you share your vision of the future with another player’s character, roll+hard. On a 10+, hold 3 over them. On a 7–9, hold 2 over them. Whenever you like, you can spend your hold, 1 for 1, to have them mark experience. On a miss, they hold 1 over you, on the same terms.

Clear-eyed: : when you read a person, roll+hard instead of roll+sharp.

Indomitable: when you go into battle, roll+hard. On a 10+, hold 3. On a 7–9, hold 2. On a miss, hold 1, but take -1forward. During the battle you can spend your hold 1 for 1 to:

  • Name an npc within your reach. You kill, disable or disarm them (MC’s choice).
  • Name a character within your reach. You redirect their attack to another character within your reach, or else to nowhere — into the ground or a wall or the sky.
  • Name a character on the scene, but outside your reach. You cross the distance between you before they have time to adjust or react.
  • Name a character within your reach. While you keep fighting, you intercept any attack directed at them and they suffer no harm.
  • Ignore all harm to yourself from an incoming attack.

Touchstone Special: If you and another character have sex, if you love them, all’s well and my blessings. If you don’t love them, permanently scribble out an improvement option you haven’t taken. Don’t scribble out “change your character to a new type.”
