Hero of the Netherworld “C’mon y’all, wanna hear another one?!”

1
You possess superhuman people skills.
Used by Joshua Jones, Created by TheSuperChrisb.
( Your Joshua Jones’s Lucky Peacock Feather must be used or obviously visible while you are actively benefitting from this effect.)

After leading the members of the Carnival to safety after the events of Game I, Joshua’s experience leading his Traveling Jam Band and his old military battalion has crystallized into the commanding charm of a true hero.

No longer will commands go unheard in the chaos of a active battle ground. His singing voice will never be lost in the din of a crowd. Even at a whisper, the voice of a hero rings louder than any other.


You gain the following benefits as long as you have your Joshua Jones’s Lucky Peacock Feather.

Your Charisma rating is increased by 1. You may Exert your Mind to automatically gain an Outcome of 5 on any roll that uses Charisma (Cannot be used on combat rolls or Power activations).

If you are witnessed actively using this Effect, whoever sees it can make a Perception + Alertness roll at Difficulty 6. A complete success reveals the source of your power.

  • Hey, Listen!: You cannot be ignored or unheard when directly addressing an entity.

  • If your Joshua Jones’s Lucky Peacock Feather is damaged, destroyed, or lost, you lose all benefits from this Effect for the next two months, or until you can recover any relevant missing items (which may involve a side-game and requires a GM to approve whatever process is used).
