In the game I am running a PC has just breached the first threshold and has failed the corruption roll so now must roll a malignancy; there was some discussion with the group as to if fate points can be used (burning and temporary) and I told my group I would think on the issue between sessions and bring a ruling when we next meet.
I have a few questions on how other GMs deal with corruption rolls;
1. How do you deal with the initial corruption role once a threshold has been reached, do you allow fate points? - My current thought on this is you can burn a permanent fate to ignore the failed corruption roll, but you cannot use a temporary fate point to reroll the corruption test.
2. How do you deal with the malignancy roll, do you allow fate points? I think that spending a temporary fate point here for a reroll is fair but what if the malignancy the PC gets destroys the 'look and feel' of their character. Roleplaying is about having fun and I do not want a PC to feel their character is ruined by one roll… this is the main headache for me.
Your thoughts and ideas are welcome…
