    Imprisoned in Division IX - Super MAX
    Given by PascalsAngel
    You are trapped in Chicago Super MAX, awaiting the death penalty after an expedited trial, and are only released temporarily to attend Contracts. At the end of each Contract, you will be returned to your prison. Your ability to do Crafting, make Moves, improve Abilities, and maintain a consistent inventory, are all significantly restricted, and you must get GM approval to attempt any of these things.
    Notorious for Mass Murder in Parkway Gardens
    Given by PascalsAngel
    You are easily recognized and treated badly by the public at large after your expedited trial and placement on death row for your crimes. There is a strong hatred of you in English speaking cultures, and anyone who watches the news or is tuned in to popular culture will reflect that attitude. You get -3 dice for any rolls in social situations, and must roleplay your notorious status when relevant.
    ̶F̶i̶n̶a̶n̶c̶e̶s̶:̶ ̶P̶o̶o̶r̶ Imprisoned
    From Assets and Liabilities
    You are completely incapable of holding onto money or most items, and have been imprisoned. You start each Contract with 0 dollars in cash, a jumpsuit, slip on shoes, and up to four prison-safe personal effect.


    From Assets and Liabilities
    Compulsive Liar You have trouble with honesty and generally find it much easier and safer to make things up. Any time you are asked about yourself, or are offering information about yourself, you must succeed a Self-Control roll in order to tell the truth. If you are ever caught in a lie, you must Exert your Mind in order to come clean; otherwise you must attempt to justify the initial lie with more lies.
    Daredevil You have a penchant for taking wild, unnecessary risks, and somehow manage to survive them. You get +3 dice when attempting an action that is especially risky, and may ignore a single 1 on that roll.
    Focused You’re cool under pressure. Stress from Mind Damage is reduced by 2.
    From Maelstrom
    In the Database Your DNA and fingerprints are in a police database, connected to the brutal killings of more than 80 people (men, women, children, elderly, and the pregnant), including police officers, as well as a rolling gunfight that injured a number of civilians

    Danny Kalypso, a native of Reno, Nevada, found himself uprooted to Las Vegas after his reputation took a hit. Now residing in the bustling streets of Vegas, Danny operates under the alias "Mr. Moolah," running an underground casino, "The Lucky Smile", tucked away in the basement of Dragon Noodles, a Chinese takeout joint. Sleeping in the office and scavenging water from the restaurant upstairs, Danny scrapes by, determined to draw in unsuspecting visitors to exploit their wealth.

    His modus operandi involves targeting wealthy vacationers, enticing them with alcohol and companionship while employing shady tactics like weighted dice and rigged games to maximize profits. While most of his earnings are reinvested into his casino and personal indulgences, he also sends financial support to his mother in Reno and his accomplice, Nathan.

    Driven by a thirst for power and wealth, Danny has ambitions of becoming the city's preeminent casino magnate. Unafraid to resort to manipulation or violence to achieve his goals, he maintains his charm while concealing a darker side. His past includes a deadly encounter in Reno, where he was forced to defend himself, leaving a man dead and a warrant in his name. He is still running from his past, but refuses to change his ways.
