INV-LARP 0.1 Playtest 93%

“Out​ ​of​ ​the​ ​night​ ​that​ ​covers​ ​me,   Black​ ​as​ ​the​ ​pit​ ​from​ ​pole​ ​to​ ​pole,  I​ ​thank​ ​whatever​ ​gods​ ​may​ ​be   For​ ​my​ ​unconquerable​ ​soul.” INVICTUS    Beta​ ​0.1    Since​ ​mankind’s​ ​earliest​ ​ancestors​ ​began​ ​to​ ​roam​ ​the​ ​earth,​ ​monsters​ ​have​ ​always​ ​lurked​ ​on​ ​the  edge​ ​of​ ​our​ ​periphery.​ ​From​ ​dreams​ ​and​ ​visions,​ ​the​ ​KA​ ​tempt​ ​the​ ​wills​ ​of​ ​mortals,​ ​beckoning  the​ ​weak​ ​willed​ ​to​ ​open​ ​the​ ​door​ ​between​ ​the​ ​world​ ​of​ ​spirit​ ​and​ ​the​ ​world​ ​of​ ​flesh.    Some​ ​KA​ ​cross​ ​over​ ​as​ ​twisted​ ​and​ ​horrific​ ​physical​ ​manifestations​ ​of​ ​terror​ ​and​ ​others​ ​hide  away​ ​behind​ ​the​ ​eyes​ ​of​ ​the​ ​possessed.​ ​The​ ​worst,​ ​not​ ​satisfied​ ​with​ ​misery​ ​sewn​ ​in​ ​the  waking​ ​world,​ ​steal​ ​victims​ ​away​ ​from​ ​their​ ​beds,​ ​forever​ ​trapping​ ​them​ ​in​ ​a​ ​realm​ ​of​ ​endless  nightmare.    The​ ​KA​ ​have​ ​no​ ​power,​ ​save​ ​that​ ​which​ ​is​ ​given​ ​to​ ​them​ ​by​ ​mankind.​ ​Each​ ​doorway​ ​opened,​ ​each  body​ ​possessed,​ ​and​ ​each​ ​soul​ ​dragged​ ​screaming​ ​into​ ​the​ ​abyss​ ​has​ ​come​ ​at​ ​the​ ​hands​ ​of  human​ ​agency.​ ​A​ ​ritual,​ ​a​ ​prayer,​ ​or​ ​a​ ​wish​ ​made​ ​under​ ​the​ ​veil​ ​of​ ​dream​ ​are​ ​all​ ​that​ ​is​ ​required  for​ ​the​ ​influence​ ​of​ ​the​ ​KA​ ​to​ ​seep​ ​into​ ​our​ ​world.     The​ ​memories​ ​of​ ​encounters​ ​with​ ​the​ ​KA​ ​oft​ ​fade​ ​as​ ​a​ ​dream​ ​upon​ ​waking.​ ​But​ ​some​ ​face​ ​the  beasts​ ​of​ ​nightmare​ ​and​ ​are​ ​changed​ ​forever.​ ​These​ ​men​ ​and​ ​women​ ​not​ ​only​ ​resist​ ​the​ ​KA,  but​ ​remember​ ​the​ ​creatures’​ ​face​ ​and​ ​form.​ ​They​ ​are​ ​the​ ​Unconquered​,​ ​those​ ​who​ ​live​ ​to  protect​ ​mankind​ ​from​ ​the​ ​monsters​​ ​which​ ​stalk​ ​them​ ​world.    Invictus​ i​ s​ ​a​ ​“Parlor”​ ​style​ ​Live​ ​Action​ ​Roleplaying​ ​game​ ​which​ ​explores​ ​the​ ​supernautal​ ​horror​ ​and  politics​ ​which​ ​drive​ ​secret​ ​societies​ ​of​ ​“monster​ ​hunters”.​ ​It​ ​aims​ ​to​ ​provide​ ​players​ ​with​ ​a​ ​space​ ​to tell​ ​a​ ​number​ ​of​ ​different​ ​stories.​ ​The​ ​mechanics​ ​of​ ​this​ ​game,​ ​rather​ ​than​ ​being​ ​driven​ ​by  randomness,​ ​are​ ​focused​ ​on​ ​spending​ ​and​ ​managing​ ​resources.​ ​Games​ ​are​ ​designed​ ​to​ ​be​ ​four​ ​or  five​ ​hours​ ​long​ ​and​ ​provide​ ​opportunities​ ​for​ ​players​ ​to​ ​explore​ ​mysteries,​ ​face​ ​deadly​ ​foes​ ​in  combat,​ ​and​ ​engage​ ​in​ ​interpersonal​ ​conflict.​ ​While​ I​ nvictus​​ ​strives​ ​to​ ​explore​ ​the​ ​“darkness”​ ​of  what​ ​lies​ ​beyond​ ​mankind’s​ ​imagination,​ ​it​ ​steers​ ​away​ ​from​ ​real​ ​world​ ​hurt.​ ​Stories​ ​about​ ​and  references​ ​to​ ​real-world​ ​discrimination,​ ​sexual​ ​assault,​ ​and​ ​tragic​ ​events​ ​are​ ​not​ ​a​ ​part​ ​of​ ​the  game.    Invictus​​ ​is​ ​about​ ​each​ ​player​ ​having​ ​the​ ​opportunity​ ​to​ ​self-select​ ​into​ ​the​ ​types​ ​of​ ​scenes​ ​and​ ​play  that​ ​are​ ​comfortable​ ​to​ ​them.​ ​To​ ​this​ ​end,​ ​Invictus​ u ​ ses​ ​the​ ​“OK​ ​CHECK​ ​IN”​ ​system​ ​to​ ​allow​ ​players  to​ ​communicate​ ​needs​ ​and​ ​comfort​ ​level​ ​without​ ​breaking​ ​the​ ​pace​ ​of​ ​roleplay.​ ​If​ ​a​ ​player​ ​seems  upset,​ ​but​ ​you​ ​aren’t​ ​sure​ ​if​ ​it​ ​is​ ​the​ ​CHARACTER​ ​not​ ​the​ ​PLAYER​ ​that​ ​is​ ​distraught,​ ​simply​ ​flash​ ​an  “OK”​ ​gesture.​ ​The​ ​“OK”​ ​gesture​ ​is​ ​a​ ​question​ ​that​ ​is​ ​responded​ ​to​ ​with​ ​a​ ​“thumbs​ ​up”,​ ​“thumbs  down”​ ​or​ ​“so​ ​so”​ ​gesture.​ ​Players​ ​who​ ​signal​ ​discomfort​ ​should​ ​be​ ​allowed​ ​to​ ​leave​ ​the​ ​scene,​ ​no  questions​ ​asked.​ ​Players​ ​are​ ​also​ ​encouraged​ ​to​ ​use​ ​the​ ​“thumbs​ ​up”​ ​or​ ​“thumbs​ ​down”​ ​symbols  proactively​ ​to​ ​communicate​ ​their​ ​level​ ​of​ ​comfort​ ​with​ ​a​ ​scene’s​ ​intensity.   The​ ​Invictus  The​ ​Invictus,​ ​or​ ​The​ ​Unconquered​​ ​is​ ​the​ ​organization​ ​of​ ​all​ ​men​ ​and​ ​women​ ​who​ ​resist​ ​and​ ​retain  awareness​ ​of​ ​the​ ​KA.​ ​The​ ​Invictus​ ​is​ ​a​ ​loose​ ​society​ ​that​ ​is​ ​formed​ ​by​ ​many​ ​Orders.​ ​The  Unconquered​ ​recognize​ ​others​ ​of​ ​their​ ​number​ ​by​ ​sight,​ ​for​ ​those​ ​whose​ ​eyes​ ​and​ ​dreams​ ​are​ ​not  clouded​ ​by​ ​the​ ​KA​ ​radiate​ ​as​ ​beacons​ ​hope​ ​to​ ​those​ ​who​ ​have​ ​become​ ​supernaturally​ ​attuned.  Since​ ​ancient​ ​times,​ ​the​ ​Invictus​ ​has​ ​been​ ​driven​ ​by​ ​a​ ​simple​ ​Codex​ ​that​ ​governs​ ​their​ ​activity:    ❖ The​ ​Unconquered​ ​must​ ​gather,​ ​to​ ​share​ ​knowledge​ ​of​ ​the​ ​KA.  ❖ The​ ​truth​ ​of​ ​the​ ​KA​ ​must​ ​be​ ​veiled​ ​from​ ​dreamers,​ ​lest​ ​the​ ​KA​ ​draw​ ​power​ ​from​ ​it.  ❖ The​ ​Unconquered​ ​must​ ​not​ ​slay​ ​one​ ​another,​ ​nor​ ​interfere​ ​in​ ​the​ ​hunt.    Geographically​ ​the​ ​Invictus​ ​divides​ ​itself​ ​into​ ​Cantons,​ ​large​ ​cities​ ​and​ ​the​ ​areas​ ​around​ ​them.  Each​ ​Canton​ ​is​ ​led​ ​by​ ​a​ ​Synod,​ ​a​ ​governing​ ​five-member​ ​council​ ​whose​ ​members​ ​are​ ​each​ ​drawn  from​ ​the​ ​Invictus’​ ​five​ ​major​ ​Orders:​ ​The​ ​Chorus,​ ​The​ ​Orthodoxy,​ ​The​ ​League,​ ​The​ ​Shamar,​ ​and  The​ ​Division.​ ​The​ ​Synod​ ​selects,​ ​by​ ​vote,​ ​a​ ​Magnate​ ​who​ ​serves​ ​as​ ​the​ ​Executive​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Canton.​ ​A  Magnate​ ​settles​ ​disputes​ ​between​ ​the​ ​Orders​ ​and​ ​takes​ ​a​ ​hand​ ​in​ ​leading​ ​hunts​ ​against​ ​the​ ​KA.  When​ ​an​ ​Unconquered​ ​is​ ​accused​ ​of​ ​violating​ ​the​ ​Codex,​ ​it​ ​is​ ​the​ ​Synod​ ​who​ ​decides​ ​innocence​ ​or  guilt,​ ​but​ ​the​ ​Magnate​ ​who​ ​sentences​ ​and​ ​metes​ ​out​ ​punishment.     The​ ​Orders  The​ ​Invictus​ ​is​ ​comprised​ ​of​ ​Orders,​ ​each​ ​guided​ ​by​ ​a​ ​set​ ​of​ ​principles​ ​which​ ​guide​ ​their​ ​nightly  war​ ​against​ ​the​ ​KA.​ ​Not​ ​every​ ​Invictus​ ​is​ ​a​ ​member​ ​of​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​five​ ​major​ ​Orders​ ​which  comprise​ ​the​ ​Synods​ ​of​ ​each​ ​city’s​ ​Canton,​ ​but​ ​most​ ​are​ ​drawn​ ​to​ ​the​ ​support​ ​and​ ​structure​ ​that  comes​ ​with​ ​membership​ ​in​ ​an​ ​Order.    The​ ​Chorus​ ​of​ ​Legend​​ ​-​ ​(Champions,​ ​Bards,​ ​Knights,​ ​Storytellers,​ ​Lorekeepers)  Gilgamesh,​ ​Corax,​ ​Heracles,​ ​Cú​ ​Chulainn,​ ​Arthur,​ ​Sun​ ​Wukong,​ ​Ramah…​ ​each​ ​civilization​ ​has  heroes​ ​whose​ ​stories​ ​echo​ ​through​ ​history.​ ​The​ ​legends​ ​of​ ​these​ ​Heroes​ ​are​ ​carried​ ​through  history​ ​by​ ​the​ ​Chorus​ ​of​ ​Legend.​ ​The​ ​Chorus​ ​seeks​ ​to​ ​venerate​ ​and​ ​emulate​ ​the​ ​heroes​ ​of​ ​old​ ​and  raise​ ​the​ ​Legends​ ​of​ ​new​ ​heroes​ ​through​ ​story​ ​and​ ​song.​ ​The​ ​Chorus​ ​was​ ​the​ ​first​ ​order​ ​of​ ​The  Invictus,​ ​and​ ​its​ ​virtues​ ​of​ ​heroism​ ​and​ ​boon-companionship​ ​echo​ ​through​ ​the​ ​Unconquered​ ​to  this​ ​day.     The​ ​Orthodoxy​ ​of​ ​Staves​​ ​-​ ​(Paladins,​ ​Priests,​ ​Holy​ ​Men,​ ​Inquisitors,​ ​Vampire​ ​Hunters)  Faith.​ ​Devotion.​ ​Prayer.​ ​Purity.​ ​These​ ​are​ ​the​ ​virtues​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Orthodoxy​ ​of​ ​Staves.​ ​Drawing​ ​its  origins​ ​from​ ​the​ ​organized​ ​religions​ ​of​ ​man,​ ​The​ ​Orthodoxy​ ​has​ ​found​ ​that​ ​acceptance​ ​of​ ​a​ ​higher  power​ ​and​ ​devotion​ ​to​ ​one’s​ ​faith​ ​serve​ ​as​ ​a​ ​powerful​ ​shield​ ​against​ ​the​ ​KA.​ ​The​ ​doctrines​ ​of​ ​the  Orthodoxy​ ​state​ ​that​ ​only​ ​through​ ​rigorous​ ​devotion​ ​to​ ​purity​ ​and​ ​rejection​ ​of​ ​the​ ​KA​ ​can  mankind​ ​be​ ​saved.    The​ ​Shamar​​ ​-​ ​ ​(Ritualists,​ ​Blood​ ​Cultists,​ ​Black-Magic​ ​Practitioners)  The​ ​Shamar​ ​seek​ ​the​ ​power​ ​to​ ​defeat​ ​the​ ​KA​ ​by​ ​wielding​ ​the​ ​very​ ​power​ ​of​ ​dream​ ​and​ ​nightmare.  Through​ ​pact,​ ​rite,​ ​and​ ​binding,​ ​they​ ​wrest​ ​the​ ​power​ ​of​ ​the​ ​KA​ ​for​ ​themselves.​ ​Though​ ​no​ ​one  can​ ​argue​ ​with​ ​the​ ​success​ ​of​ ​the​ ​secretive​ ​and​ ​ritualistic​ ​Shamar,​ ​their​ ​methods​ ​are​ ​rarely  trusted​ ​by​ ​the​ ​members​ ​of​ ​the​ ​other​ ​Orders.    The​ ​League​ ​of​ ​Extranormal​ ​Inquiry​​ ​-​ ​(Mad-Scientists,​ ​Dark​ ​Dabblers,​ ​Mythos​ ​seekers)  Founded​ ​in​ ​the​ ​misty​ ​streets​ ​of​ ​Europe​ ​in​ ​the​ ​1800’s,​ ​the​ ​League​ ​is​ ​comprised​ ​of​ ​those​ ​scholars,  alchemists,​ ​and​ ​practitioners​ ​of​ ​pseudoscience​ ​among​ ​the​ ​Unconquered​ ​who​ ​began​ ​to​ ​experiment  with​ ​extracting​ ​Phlogiston​ ​from​ ​the​ ​corpses​ ​of​ ​slain​ ​KA.​ ​With​ ​these​ ​strange​ ​sciences,​ ​the​ ​League  has​ ​created​ ​powerful​ ​and​ ​dangerous​ ​technologies​ ​that​ ​empowers​ ​them​ ​to​ ​continue​ ​seeking  knowledge,​ ​regardless​ ​of​ ​the​ ​cost.        Division​ ​Six​​ ​-​ ​(G-Men,​ ​Gadgeteers,​ ​Realists,​ ​Men​ ​In​ ​Black)  ​ ​Allegedly​ ​once​ ​an​ ​agency​ ​of​ ​the​ ​United​ ​States​ ​Department​ ​of​ ​Homeland​ ​Security,​ ​the​ ​agents​ ​of  Division​ ​Six​ ​stands​ ​as​ ​a​ ​highly​ ​regimented​ ​and​ ​technologically​ ​empowered​ ​Order​ ​that​ ​operates  throughout​ ​the​ ​world.​ ​ ​Their​ ​mission​ ​is​ ​simple:​ ​destroy​ ​the​ ​KA​ ​and​ ​cover-up​ ​the​ ​existence​ ​of​ ​the  supernatural.​ ​Rejecting​ ​all​ ​superstition​ ​and​ ​pseudoscience,​ ​the​ ​Division​ ​pursues​ ​its​ ​agenda​ ​with  strict​ ​adherence​ ​to​ ​regulation​ ​and​ ​the​ ​principals​ ​of​ ​order.     System  Invictus’​ m ​ echanical​ ​system​ ​is​ ​driven​ ​by​ ​resource​ ​management​ ​and​ ​spending​ ​and​ ​is​ ​played​ ​by​ ​each  player​ ​using​ ​a​ ​full​ ​deck​​ ​of​ ​regular​ ​playing​ ​cards:​ ​13​ ​Hearts,​ ​13​ ​Clubs,​ ​13​ ​Diamonds,​ ​13​ ​Spades​ ​and​ ​Two  Jokers.     Each​ ​player’s​ ​cards​ ​are​ ​divided​ ​into​ ​two​ ​groups:  ● The​ ​Hand​​ ​-​ ​Resources​ ​at​ ​the​ ​player’s​ ​disposal​ ​that​ ​may​ ​be​ d ​ iscarded​​ ​to​ ​take​ ​action​ ​or​ ​activate  effects.  ● The​ ​Deck​ -​ ​ ​Cards​ ​not​ ​available​ ​for​ ​the​ ​player​ ​to​ ​spend,​ ​but​ ​may​ ​be​ ​drawn​​ ​in​ ​certain  circumstances.    All​ ​mechanics​ ​require​ ​players​ ​interact​ ​with​ ​their​ ​cards​ ​in​ ​one​ ​of​ ​two​ ​ways:  ● Draw​​ ​-​ ​Take​ ​a​ ​card​ ​of​ ​the​ ​specified​ ​suit​ ​from​ ​the​ ​deck​ ​and​ ​place​ ​it​ ​into​ ​your​ ​hand.  ● Discard​​ ​-​ ​Take​ ​a​ ​card​ ​of​ ​the​ ​specified​ ​suit​ ​from​ ​the​ ​hand​ ​and​ ​place​ ​it​ ​into​ ​your​ ​deck.​ ​If​ ​a​ ​player  would​ ​discard​ ​a​ ​♥​ ​(heart),​ ♣​ ​ ​(club),​ ​or​ ​♦​ ​ ​(diamond)​ ​they​ ​may​ ​choose​ ​to​ ​instead​ ​discard​ ​a​ ♠​ ​ ​(spade).    Characters​ ​have​ ​four​ ​attributes​ ​or​ ​P.I.T.H.​​ ​with​ ​a​ ​minimum​ ​score​ ​of​ o ​ ne​ ​and​ ​a​ ​maximum​ ​of​ t​ hirteen​:  ● Physicality​ ​ ​-​ ​A​ ​character’s​ ​strength,​ ​toughness,​ ​and​ ​agility​ ​ ​[Represented​ ​by​ ​Clubs​ ​♣)   ● Influence​ -​ ​ ​A​ ​character’s​ ​social​ ​and​ ​interpersonal​ ​graces​ ​(Represented​ ​by​ ​Hearts​ ​♥)  ● Thought​ -​ ​ ​A​ ​character’s​ ​general​ ​wit​ ​and​ ​perceptiveness​ ​(Represented​ ​by​ ​Diamonds​ ​♦)  ● Hope​​ ​-​ ​A​ ​character’s​ ​endurance​ ​in​ ​the​ ​face​ ​of​ ​horror​ ​and​ ​adversity​ ​(Represented​ ​by​ ​Spades​ ​♠)    At​ ​the​ ​beginning​ ​of​ ​each​ ​session,​ ​players​ ​will​ ​draw​​ ​their​ ​starting​ h ​ and​​ ​based​ ​on​ ​their​ ​attributes.​ ​(​For  example,​ ​a​ ​character​ ​with​ ​3​ ​Physicality,​ ​4​ ​Influence,​ ​5​ ​Thought,​ ​and​ ​2​ ​Hope​ ​would​ ​draw​ ​ 3 ​ ♣,​ ​4♥,​ ​5♦,​ ​and​ ​2♠  for​ ​their​ ​starting​ ​hand)     The​ ​rules​ ​of​ ​Invictus​​ ​do​ ​not​ ​discern​ ​between​ ​different​ ​card​ ​values,​ ​only​ ​the​ ​suit​ ​of​ ​the​ ​card​ ​drawn​ ​or  discarded​ ​matters.     If​ ​mechanics​ ​would​ ​have​ ​a​ ​player​ ​draw​​ ​a​ ​card​ ​that​ ​is​ ​not​ ​in​ ​their​ ​deck,​ ​that​ ​player​ ​draws​ ​no​ ​card.​ ​A  player​ ​may​ ​not​ ​have​ ​more​ ​than​ ​13​ ​of​ ​a​ ​given​ ​suit​ ​in​ ​their​ ​hand​ ​at​ ​a​ ​time.    If​ ​mechanics​ ​would​ ​have​ ​a​ ​player​ ​discard​ a ​ ​ ​card​ ​that​ ​is​ ​not​ ​in​ ​their​ ​hand,​ ​that​ ​character​ ​becomes  incapacitated​.​ ​An​ ​incapacitated​​ ​character​ ​immediately​ ​discards​ ​their​ ​entire​ ​hand​​ ​and​ ​becomes  unconscious​ ​or​ ​catatonic,​ ​and​ ​remains​ ​that​ ​way​ ​until​ ​restored​ ​by​ ​a​ ​mechanical​ ​effect.    Challenges  Challenges​ ​in​ ​Invictus​ ​are​ ​used​ ​to​ ​determine​ ​success​ ​or​ ​failure​ ​on​ ​difficult​ ​tasks​ ​or​ ​those​ ​which​ ​are  opposed​ ​by​ ​others.​ ​There​ ​are​ ​three​ ​types​ ​of​ ​challenges:    ● Physical​ ​Challenges​​ -​ ​ ​Some​ ​feats​ ​of​ ​physical​ ​prowess​ ​require​ ​a​ ​simple​ ​spending​ ​of​ ♣​ .​ ​A  Storyteller​ ​may​ ​ask​ ​a​ ​character​ ​attempting​ ​to​ ​leap​ ​across​ ​a​ ​gap​ ​between​ ​buildings​ ​to​ ​spend​ ​a​ ♣​   to​ ​undertake​ ​the​ ​effort.​ ​Such​ ​challenges​ ​will​ ​be​ ​marked​ ​with​ ​the​ ​cost.​ ​Unless​ ​otherwise​ ​specified,  all​ ​such​ ​static​ ​challenges​ ​may​ ​be​ ​collaborated​ ​on,​ ​but​ ​all​ ​cards​ ​must​ ​be​ ​discarded​ ​at​ ​the​ ​same  time​ ​and​ ​all​ ​participants​ ​must​ ​share​ ​the​ ​resulting​ ​victory​ ​or​ ​consequence.       ● Influence​ ​Challenges​​ ​-​ ​When​ ​characters​ ​seek​ ​to​ ​argue,​ ​determine​ ​the​ ​truth,​ ​or​ ​socially​ ​interact  with​ ​one​ ​another​ ​they​ ​may​ ​bid​ ​any​ ​number​ ​of​ ​♥​ ​from​ ​their​ ​hand​ ​in​ ​a​ ​small​ ​bidding​ ​war.​ ​If​ ​another  character​ ​wishes​ ​to​ ​challenge​ ​the​ ​assertion​ ​of​ ​the​ ​bidder,​ ​they​ ​may​ ​attempt​ ​to​ ​contradict​ ​by  bidding​ ​a​ h ​ igher​​ ​number​ ​of​ ​♥.​ ​The​ ​winner​ ​must​ ​then​ ​discard​​ ​a​ ​number​ ​of​ ♥​ ​ ​equal​ ​to​ ​their​ ​bid,  from​ ​that​ ​point​ ​forward,​ ​all​ ​participants​ ​in​ ​the​ ​conversation​ ​must​ ​accept​ ​the​ ​winner’s​ ​assertions  as​ ​truth​ ​until​ ​faced​ ​with​ ​overwhelming​ ​evidence.​ ​An​ ​influence​ ​challenge​ ​cannot​ ​cause​ ​a  character​ ​to​ ​abandon​ ​a​ ​deeply​ ​held​ ​belief​ ​rooted​ ​in​ ​personal​ ​faith​ ​or​ ​ideology,​ ​but​ ​may​ ​cause​ ​a  character​ ​to​ ​differently​ ​recollect​ ​events​ ​they​ ​have​ ​participated​ ​in​ ​or​ ​witnessed.​ ​Once​ ​characters  have​ ​resolved​ ​a​ ​matter​ ​through​ ​an​ ​influence​ ​challenge,​ ​the​ ​issue​ ​should​ ​not​ ​be​ ​revisited​ ​between  them.  Example:​​ T ​ wo​ ​hunters​ ​are​ ​sharing​ ​a​ ​tale​ ​of​ ​glory,​ ​and​ ​one​ ​claims​ ​to​ ​have​ ​taken​ ​the​ ​killing  blow​ ​in​ ​a​ ​battle​ ​against​ ​a​ ​vicious​ ​KA.   Player​ ​One:​ ​“And​ ​that’s​ ​how​ ​I​ ​slew​ ​the​ ​beast”  Player​ ​Two:​​ ​“I​ ​seem​ ​to​ ​remember​ ​that​ ​it​ ​was​ ​me​ ​who​ ​struck​ ​the​ ​final​ ​blow​ ​-​ ​Bid​ ​One”  Player​ ​One​ ​“Are​ ​you​ ​sure?​ ​I’m​ ​pretty​ ​sure​ ​the​ ​Chorus​ ​will​ ​be​ ​singing​ ​about​ ​*my*​ ​legend​ ​-​ ​Bid  Two”  Player​ ​Two:​ “​ Hmm,​ ​it​ ​seems​ ​you​ ​are​ ​right,​ ​I​ ​must​ ​have​ ​misremembered”  *Player​ ​one​ ​then​ ​discards​ ​two​ ​♥​ ​from​ ​his​ ​hand​ ​to​ ​his​ ​deck*    ● Thought​ ​Challenge​​ ​-​ ​When​ ​characters​ ​seek​ ​to​ ​investigate​ ​a​ ​mystery,​ ​crack​ ​a​ ​code,​ ​spot​ ​a​ ​foe  hidden​ ​in​ ​the​ ​darkness​ ​they​ ​engage​ ​in​ ​a​ ​thought​ ​challenge.​ ​Most​ ​challenges​ ​are​ ​resolved​ ​through  static​ ​spend​ ​amounts.​ ​(For​ ​example,​ ​a​ ​challenge​ ​envelope​ ​for​ ​characters​ ​to​ ​decypher​ ​ancient  runes​ ​may​ ​be​ ​marked​ ​with​ ​“8♦”,​ ​which​ ​means​ ​a​ ​total​ ​of​ ​eight​ ​diamonds​ ​will​ ​need​ ​to​ ​have​ ​been  spent​ ​to​ ​decipher​ ​the​ ​runes.).​ ​Unless​ ​otherwise​ ​specified,​ ​all​ ​static​ ​challenges​ ​may​ ​be  collaborated​ ​on,​ ​but​ ​all​ ​cards​ ​must​ ​be​ ​discarded​ ​at​ ​the​ ​same​ ​time​ ​and​ ​all​ ​participants​ ​must​ ​share  the​ ​resulting​ ​information​ ​or​ ​consequences​ ​of​ ​the​ ​challenge.​ ​Sometimes,​ ​contests​ ​of​ ​Thought  between​ ​two​ ​characters​ ​(such​ ​as​ ​a​ ​chess​ ​match)​ ​may​ ​be​ ​resolved​ ​through​ ​bidding,​ ​in​ ​a​ ​similar  fashion​ ​to​ ​influence​ ​challenges​,​ ​with​ ​characters​ ​expending​ ♦​ ​ ​instead​ ​of​ ♥​ .  Combat  ● At​ ​the​ ​beginning​ ​of​ ​each​ ​round​ ​of​ ​combat,​ ​all​ ​participants​ ​must​ ​declare​ ​who​ ​or​ ​what​ ​they​ ​are  attacking.​ ​The​ ​storyteller​ ​will​ ​count​ ​down​ ​verbally​ ​from​ ​three,​ ​at​ ​the​ ​end​ ​of​ ​which,​ ​each​ ​particip  or​ ​interacting​ ​with​ ​during​ ​the​ ​round​ ​and​ ​must​ ​point​ ​at​ ​the​ ​target​ ​of​ ​their​ ​choice.​ ​ ​Characters​ ​who  are​ ​not​ ​attacking​ ​or​ ​interacting​ ​with​ ​anything​ ​must​ ​point​ ​at​ ​themselves.​ ​A​ ​character​ ​pointing​ ​at  themselves​ ​and​ ​whom​ ​no-one​ ​is​ ​pointing​ ​at​ ​may,​ ​at​ ​the​ ​end​ ​of​ ​the​ ​countdown,​ ​declare​ ​“fair  escape”​ ​and​ ​leave​ ​the​ ​combat​ ​scene.     ● Attacking​ ​characters​ ​must​ ​then​ ​discard​ ​a​ ​relevant​ ​card​ ​(usually​ ​♣)​ ​and​ ​declare​ ​the​ ​Power​​ ​of​ ​their  attack.   ○ An​ ​attack’s​ ​Power​ i​ s​ ​the​ P ​ .I.T.H.​​ ​associated​ ​with​ ​the​ ​attack​ ​(usually​ ​Physicality​)​ ​plus​ ​a  single​ ​bonus​ ​from​ ​a​ ​piece​ ​of​ g ​ ear​,​ ​a​ ​single​ ​bonus​ ​from​ ​a​ ​trait​,​ ​and​ ​a​ ​single​ ​bonus​ ​from​ ​a  marvel​.   ●
