Tier 1:

Lucky Miss (2 Speed points): When an attack roll is being made against you roll a 1d6, if the result is odd you fail and the attack hits you. If it’s even you succeed and are able to retaliate and make an attack roll against them.

Gambler: You always seem to gain a few extra shins winning bets. Roll a 1d6 every time you win a bet that you’ve put money on. That 1d6 is your extra shins. – Enabler

Tier 2:

Favored Strike (3 Might points): When you succeed in making an attack roll. Roll a 1d20 and add half of that number to the damage you dealt. If you happen to get a number that cannot be halved, take the closest lesser number that would be able too. If you roll a 7, you take the maximum damage output being an additional 10 points of damage.

Tier 3:

Fortunate Cancellation (3 Intellect points): When the GM makes an intrusion that you don’t like. You have the ability to cancel it out, and truly luck out. This can only be done to yourself and once every 28 hours.

Extreme Gambler: You always seem to luck out on winning bets; this takes the place of your 1st tier enabler. Instead of rolling a 1d6 for the ability you now roll a 2d6.

Tier 4:

Pull it out of the Rear (6 Speed points): You don’t accept bad rolls. Once per 28 hours, when you roll a 1, 3, or 5, you are given that many chances to reroll and exceed your difficulty check if it’s possible. Yet you are only allowed to use one asset on those rolls.

Tier 6:

Gamble (6 Intellect points): When you gamble or make a bet in the Campaign, if you happen to win, you are able to gain a much higher reward. If you bet over money you receive triple the bet. If it’s some other kind of gamble the reward will be discussed with the GM.
