Your contact is not brainwashed or supernaturally compelled, and they may refuse to do things which are unreasonable or absurd.

    Only GMs who have permission to run Contracts and post World Events in Maelstrom can post Moves for Jacob Sterns.


    Jacob noticed early on that he got the hang of things quicker than his peers, but in his early teens he realized that, although being slightly above average everywhere, he was never able to excel in anything. This lead him to try and find a way to stand out with any achievment and thus break his curse.
