Corruption Extravaganza

Recommended Posts

So I'm a big fan of FFG boardgame set in 40k universe called Relic. In the game, there is great variety of so called "Corruption Cards", that you can earn either willingly or not, giving you random buffs and penalties (mostly the latter). I thought, that it may be fun to try to convert those to Dark Heresy.

Rolls are taken only when GM says so. I recommend rolling when a character reads some kind of Tome containing forbidden knowledge, or maybe when trying to communicate with the Dark Powers, through a ritual.

GM can decide that player must roll more than once, but be careful, as some roll results are forcing to roll more times on the table, so you can get huge ammounts of corruption in short time. The visibility of effects, are up to GM. You can stop at statistics, or rule that for example "LIMB LOSS" actually causes your arm to fall off.

I recommend that there should be a way of discarding traits (as in boardgame), but it's up to GM, how hard and time-consuming will it be.

Here's what I came up with:

 

01-35: MUNDANE. Gain 1 Corruption Point. If you caused the roll willingly, gain 1d5 Insanity Points, as The Dark Powers ignore your deeds
