Inspired by the recent career specific POD release and Boehm action cards lets hear any suggested action cards to make the average human career PCs feel as indulged as those non-human warriors and  magic or faith users. Just a title is fine.

Coachman:

"Run 'em down" "Jack Knifed Carriage" "Stow-away" "Short cut"

And for those afraid of going insane ....or fond of beer ....or with a deeproooted desire to become alchoholics ...

 

Liquid Courage / ...a nightcap to help me sleep

Prerequisite: You must possess or purchase the necessary alcholic beverage

 

Difficulty 1

 

Liquid Courage, recharge 1 day, Discipline (T) - recharge is one day

Automatic success: You are blissfully intoxicated !! Add an expertise die to resists or recover against fear or intimidation.

 

...a nightcap to help me sleep, Discipline (T) - recharge is one session.

Automatic success: You are blissfully intoxicated !! Add an expertise die to resists or recover against insanity

Double success: You are blissfully intoxicated !! Add two expertise die to resists or recover against insanity 

 

for both sides...

- Baneeffect: Hangover, suffer a misfortune die on all checks as long as this card is recharging unless you stay drunk...

- Chaos Star effect: Next time you use this card add an extra difficulty die, increase baneeffect by one misfortune die, and card takes twice the time to recharge

 Heh Heh that's great. I'd have intoxication work like a temp suppression of an insanity card

Agitator:

-"Heckle"

-"Portable Soapbox"

-"Rally the Rabble"

-"You're no better than us.." 

-"Point the Bone"

-"Why we fightin' each other for?"

-"Disappear in a cloud of leaflets"

I love Bo'em's noble pet idea - reskin Ratcatcher as Spoiled Noble Brat with longsuffering dogsbody instead of dog, and there you go.....

I have a PC at table who started as Ratcatcher and has recently discovered noble heritage, may be he eventually replaces dog with servant (mechanics same but the roleplaying fluff changes).

Genius!

 A young noble - more arrogant and full of himself than charming or competent in the way of arms ....afterall he has no need ... he is NOBLE ...and he has people (or well atleast his personal footman, simple as he may be) for the rough stuff ...

 Im just working on another set I call Underworld

Danger Sense / Wasn't Me!

Alley'wise / We are wanted men ...

Nice and Silently / Violent Response

I was also thinking if poisoning should be handled via an action card or not, what do you guys think?  Maybe something like 'A Bitter Taste / Poisoned Blade'

Anyone got any other ideas for some Underworld-centric actions?

 If the PCs were heavily involved in secret organizations such as secret criminal gangs, maybe action card that leveraged their membership for personal gain would appeal.  Though some might work better as talents.

-"Brinkmanship"

-"Black market contacts"

-"Close Ranks"

-"Business is business"

-"Don't leave town"

-"Talk to my people"

-"Poisoned Chalice"

-"Sleeps with the Reik Eels"

-"I know a guy..."

-"Patron"

-"I ain't asking"

-"Layers upon layers/wheels within wheels"

-"Everyone has a secret"

-"A finger in every pie"

-"Turf war"

-"Preferential treatment"

-"Stone Cold Killer"

-"Keep friends close.../...And enemies closer"

-"make a problem just go away"

Nice ideas ... what would those do?? 

 

Anyway I finished 3 new cards for my Underworld idea ... thought I would post one at a time as teasers 

 

Any comments would be highly appreciated ? possitive or negative ...
