  • Psychotic Episodes: The target’s neural pathways begin to decay. At any time, the GM may call for a Mind roll from the target, with the Difficulty equal to 5 + 1 for each day they have been sick (rounded up). Failure causes them to undergo a break from reality. A botch will also grant a new Trauma.

The trap looks like a sticky fluid coating a surface and can only be discovered as a trap by those with preexisting knowledge of such traps. Anyone who is aware of the trap may intuitively avoid, trigger, or destroy it.

Any Living target within within arm’s reach that uses the trap as a sticky fluid coating a surface will trigger it. Your target may resist by rolling Body at Difficulty 7.

When the trap is triggered, the target is afflicted with a Condition that causes the chosen symptoms. Symptoms begin to appear immediately, and will remain and continue to worsen until the affliction is cured. The affliction is contagious and will spread to new targets. Anyone who comes into direct contact an afflicted person must roll Body, Difficulty 7, and if their outcome is lower than your initial Outcome, they become afflicted.

The affliction is not treatable by modern medicine. It may be diagnosed by rolling Intellect + Occult at Difficulty 6, and can be cured by consuming at least a pound of flesh from a cadaver more than 24 hours old.

  • Triggering the trap requires an Action from the target, not merely an incidental glance.
  • This consumable is destroyed when used and cannot be used again.
  • Successfully diagnosing an affliction also includes information about the treatment method.
  • The chosen method of treatment must be something that you could obtain in a small town given an afternoon.
  • Curing an affliction removes the Condition, but does not automatically heal any Injuries, Battle Scars, or Traumas which may have been caused by that condition.
  • Multiple traps cannot be placed in the exact same location or be triggered by the same single Action. Nor can one trap triggering cause another to trigger.
  • Trap can only be spotted by someone who has witnessed this particular trap before, has been informed, or possesses relevant supernatural abilities.
