Used by Franklin Fist, Created by harryj321.
( Your Dados Muertes must be used or obviously visible while you are actively benefitting from this effect.)

When the dice are in Fist's...fist...no one can tell when he's bluffing.


You gain the following benefits as long as you have your Dados Muertes.

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).

Possession of this Power grants the following Trauma at all times: Game Addict: You must roll Self-Control to avoid attempting any game you could play, regardless of your familiarity with it.

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.

You also gain the following effects:

  • Liar Liar Pants on Fire: You have an intuitive understanding of whether or not someone believes what they are saying. You can always tell if someone is lying to you without making a roll, though you do not necessarily know what they are lying about.
  • Poker Face: You never give any outward indication of dishonesty. It is impossible to tell that you are lying, and you are able to fool any method of lie detection without making a roll.

  • In rare cases, GMs may require you to make a roll to detect a lie from particularly powerful beings (trickster gods, etc).
  • In rare cases, GMs may require you to make a roll to lie to particularly powerful beings.
  • If your Dados Muertes 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).
