Unstable : Descriptor

Published February 6, 2014 by


Driven insane by past events, you are plagued by memories of what happened to you. Whether it was the loss of a loved one, or a piece of numenera that affected your mind, you are a shadow of your former self – twisted and troubled. Prone to lashing out at others and constantly in distress, you will forever be tormented by thoughts of pain and suffering.

You gain the following benefits:

Twisted:
+2 to your highest Pool.
Troubled:
-1 to your second highest Pool.
Skill:
You are trained in one first-tier fighting move, esotery or trick of your choice, no matter your type.
Insane:
All attacks inflict 1 additional point of damage to the enemy.
Tormented:
The difficulty of any action you previously failed that day is increased by one step (this does not apply to combat actions).
Inability:
The difficulty of any positive or pleasant social interaction is increased by one step.
