Another Skin: The Oracle
« on: July 04, 2012, 10:38:33 AM »
Another new skin I've been thinking of is a seer/medium-type, with a heft does of Chloe Sullivan from Smallville. Here's what I've got so far:

The Truth isnít out there, itís in here: you know, youíve seen it, just beneath the skin. The world is more beautiful and terrible than anyone but you suspects. That will change. Youíll expose everything and change how people see the world forever. Nothing will stand between you and the Truth, no matter how much it hurts.

Look
Choose one from each list:
intellectual, preppy, shadowy, one of the crowd, pariah

roaming eyes, trustworthy eyes, lying eyes, seeking eyes, wide-open eyes

Origin
Circle one:
born different, medical intervention, near-death experience, vision quest, mysterious encounter

Stats
Start with Hot-1, Cold 1, Volatile-1, Dark 1

Backstory
Youíve seen someoneís supernatural form in action and will expose them to the world. Take 2 Strings on them.

You once let someone else close enough to learn your deepest desire. They gain a String on you.

Oracle Moves
Choose two:
True Sight: If a character has a non-human nature, you can learn it and they take 1 String against you.

Hold the Front Page: When you make public something you were told in confidence, mark experience and the person whose trust you abused gains 1 String on you.

Be My Eyes: When appropriate, you may take someoneís name as a condition; they become your eyes. As long as anyone is your eyes, they get +1 on all moves they make against you, but you may see & hear through their senses at any time.

Prophecy: When you tell another PC what their destiny is, they take -1 on all moves to fight their destiny. Every time they get 10+ when fighting their destiny, you take 1 harm. This continues until they meet their destiny, overcome it or you withdraw your prophecy.

Medium: When you gaze into the Abyss, you can contact a specific person who has passed over and take +2 to your roll but your question is answered by that person, who may not know or may give a self-serving answer.

Insightful: Gain 1 String on any NPC when meeting them for the first time.

Sex Move
When you have sex, you must reveal to them a secret you know about someone else.

Darkest Self
Theyíre all blind, pulled by the web of forces they cannot even comprehend which ensnares everyone of them, but not you. Youíll sit apart from them, unseen and isolated, pulling their strings and playing with them from a distance like a master puppeteer. You escape your Darkest Self when someone physically comes and takes you from your self-imposed exile.
