Cross-system Cross-version Merits and Flaws
Going to be trying to put this together so figure I should be sharing this.


Using CoD for all new world of darkness settings.

Including backgrounds in here too, they will not have the dots before them however and will have them after.

Buying Merits

After char creation buying merits should be up to the ST, but generally should require that you do some work IC and spend the exp. This means ether using related skills, RPing, or spending down time working on it. STs may just allow spending EXP however and it is up to the ST.

Some merits, such as those related to owning things or having friends can only be bought at char creation and must be gained through RP in the game.

* marks Merits/Flaws I suggest only be bought at char creation.

Backgrounds -> Merits/flaws
The blue merits are backgrounds or where based of backgrounds and best taken at char creation. Many can not be taken after char creation can can only be gained after creation through RP.

Blue flaws are anti-backgrounds and likewise are best taken at char creation, and also may only be able to be picked up through RP. At story Tellers discretion they may allow you to take more backgrounds if you take anti-backgrounds and not count them torge your normal limit of flaws... however if you do this in CoD you will still be limited to how many beats you can gain from your flaws even if you have more than that limit)

Note on CoD and Flaws
In nWoD you are allowed a flaw that gives you exp when it comes up in a problematic away, with CoD they give you beats instead but very few have been updated.

The general rule set though is you get a beat in the following sort of situations, up to the ST:
The flaw or condition causes you or the group significant problems.
You intentionally take a failure on a roll involving the flaw to gain the beat.
You forgo an obligation because of your flaw.
In the case of some flaws, just when they kick in if they don't do so much.

Resolution is usaly up to the story teller however one that is generally a given is if the char regains a dot of Integrity, loses a dot of Integrity, or achieve an exceptional success on a breaking point. Otherwise it is up to the ST. Note many serious psychological and most physical flaws can't be resolved by normal means at all.

Supernatural Merits / Flaws
Supernatural Merits

•• Danger Sense - You have a sixth sense that warns you of danger.
  WoD Rules: ST will make a hidden Perception + Alertness roll, diff depending on the remoteness of the danger.
  CoD Rules: +2 bonus to detect an ambush.

•••••• *Guardian Angel - Someone or something watches over  you and protects you. Rather some force or being  in times of great need you MAY be supernaturally protected.

••• *Luck - You manage to succeed in places when others fail. You can repeat three failed rolls per chapter/story, one repeat per roll, and the second roll always stands.
  General Suggestion: One re-roll per gaming session.

•• Medium - You can sense the presence of ephemeral beings and hear them whispering. You can summon them and sometimes they may seek you out for favors.
  CoD Rules: You can perform a particular type of ritual or focus and roll Wits + Occult to progress Influence Conditions one step on the continuum from none to Controlled. Once per session, you may have to roll Resolve + Composure to avoid being Shaken or Spooked by the other side.

• to ••••• Past Life - You can remember one or more of your previous incarnations. This can be a simple sense of deja vu in places, flashbacks of strange places, to waking memories of being another person. ST can chose to give you insight based off your past lives and if you meditate you can try to access them. You may only meditate for a bonus once per gaming session.
  WoD Rules: Meditate first then roll Intigence + Past Life (diff 8) and each success adds one dice to a single subsequent roll. A botch may induce a flash back to past life trama's or cause a past life to take over.
  CoD Suggested Rules: Meditate first then roll Past Life and each success adds one dice to a single subsequent roll. A failed roll can cause a weak braking point that may lead inducing a flash back to past life trama's (and a harder braking point) or cause a past life to take over.
  General Suggestion: May use once per session for half the level rounded up.

••• *Spirit Mentor - You have a ghostly companion and guide. This spirit is able to employ some minor powers but really struggles when exerting itself (see haunted for an idea what little it's capable of) and is unable to manifest physically. It's most useful in giving advice.
  WoD Rules: It's able to use some of the affects from the haunted flaw, and give some advice that may lower difficulties on some rolls.
  CoD Suggested Rules: It's able to use some of the affects from the haunted flaw, and provide a services bonus to some rolls.
  General Suggestion: Set aside a list of what skills it is able to advise on and how well.

••• *Supernatural Companion) / "Special Friend" - You have a close ally/friend who is a supernatural being. You can call upon them in times of need (as they can you). Depending on the kind of being they are, there may be negative aspects to having this friend as well as positive ones (a Werewolf having a Vampire ally won't go over well with ether's groups...).

••••••• True Faith - You have a deep-seated faith in  and love for the/a God. You begin the game with one point of faith. You can add your faith to your willpower rolls and use your faith as you would use willpower. You regain faith based on your religious believes. The full affects of faith are a good deal lot and totally up to the story teller but should be allowed by any char and include such as repeling vampires just at the low levels, the affects of high faith should be decided by the ST.

•••• *Unbondable - No mater how much vampire blood you drink you can't be bonded.

Supernatural Flaws

• *The Bard's Tongue - 'Things couldn't possibly get any worse...' You just can't help but say the truth, uncannily so. The things you say tend to come true rather it's because you said them or you say them because there about to happen you don't know but you can't help yourself. At least once per story you will blert out such a truth though, to avoid speaking prophecy, you must expend a willpower point and take a bashing level of damage from the strain of resisting. (especially if you bite your own tongue) Warning the ST may take inspiration from what you say if you take this rather than telling you what to say.

• to ••••• *Cursed - You have been cursed by someone or something and it is a specific and detailed cure that cannot be dispelled without extreme effort, and doing so could be life-threatening.  Some example curses:
  • - If you pass on a secret that was told to you, your betrayal will later harm you in some way.
  •• - You stutter uncontrollably when you try and describe what you have seen or heard.
  ••• - Tools often brake or malfunction when you attempt to use them.
  •••• - You are doomed to make enemies to those you have become most attached to.
  ••••• -  Everyone of your accomplishments or achievements will inevitably become tainted or fail in some way.

••••• *Dark Fate - Your char is plagued with visions of there own demise, only willpower can overcome the malaise these visions inspire... and your char knows that one day, very soon, they will meet there end. They may not know exactly how or when but they sure know it's coming. (this could be a false fate or one that can be changed but your char is 100% sure they are doomed... that dosen't mean they can't shake off the vision with some willpower and find freedom in the fact they know there days are numbered)

• to ••••• Echoes - Your supernatural nature, or the nature people believe you to have, affects you and the world around you based on the local superstitions and customs. For example if people believe you to be a witch, milk may sour in your presence. The more points the worse these affects. See this flaw under each archetype for more details for them.

• and up - *Geas / Magical Prohibition / Magical Imperative - You swore, promised, or made a bargain that Someone (and with a capital S) witness and is holding you too it. Turning back on that would not be in your best interest. The exact details should be worked out with your ST.
  As for the promise the value of it comes down to how easy it is to live with, the harder a deal it is and the more often it might come up the more points it is with. Never brake bread with a red haired man would only be worth a single point, stop and pet every cat you see would be two, never back down from a fight would be three, and so on.
  As for the consequences the harsher they are the more points. Automaticaly botching the next time you use a power would be one, bad luck the rest of your life two, losing all your friends or wordily possessions three, dying four, losing your soul five.

••• *Haunted - You are haunted by a ghost that only you (and Mediums) can see and hear. It actively dislikes you and enjoys making your life miserable by insulting, berating and distracting you - especially when you need to keep your cool. It also has a number of minor powers it can use against you though (though can only do so every so often): hide small objects; bring a "chill" over others, making them very ill at ease with you; cause a loud buzzing in your ear or the ears of others; move a small object such as a knife or pen; break a fragile item such as a bottle or mirror; trip you; or make eerie noises such as chains rattling. Yelling at the ghost can sometimes drive it away, but it will confuse those who are around you.

••••• *Psychic Vampire - The spark of life in you is dying and must continually be feed from outside forces. The case with you is quite severe as well, with plants and buts withering away in your presence as you feed on there energies. Those in your presence find there normal healing processes stop, and there life slowly drain away. Should anyone spend more than an hour in the same room as you, they will take a health level of damage for each hour they do. If the emptiness in you isn't feed at least once a day (causing damage to some one) then you will start to slowly die.
WoD Rules: As you die you start to take health level damage as per lethal healing in reverse. One day, three days, a week, a month, and then one every three months till you die.
CoD Suggested Rules: Take damage after one day, then after two, then after four, then every week till death. (considering the much shorter time scale on healing)
General Suggestion:  Having this flaw gives a + 1 dice bonus to the Numina: Psychic Vampirism rolls, + 2 if you are 'well feed'. At ST discretion having the Numina may allow players enough control to get away with getting there daily feeding with out damaging anyone by feeding off a large enough a number of people at once... this will not stop them from damaging plant and insect life though, and some small animals.

•• *Surreal Quality - Though you seam mortal even if your not, there is something unnatural about you that mortals find fascinating. While this might seam like a good thing it's not. You attract to much attention to yourself, mostly that of the annoying and detrimental kind. This is particularly bad for some one trying to keep low key.

• to ••••• *Throwback (anti-Past Life)- One or more of your past lives still affects you... badly. You share it's fears, nightmares haunt your dreams, you have flashbacks of there worst memories. Worst yet a past lives personality could encroach on your own. The full affects of this are up to your ST.
 • - bad memories and a few nightmares, maybe the occasional flashback
 •• - flashs backs can happen at the worst of times and the nightmares are constant.
 ••• - Rather you know it or not you have a 'roommate' in your head.
 •••• - Your past life has taken over a few times.
 ••••• - Your past lives are a constant pestilence on your life.
 CoD Suggested Rules: When your char has a braking point, unless you get an exceptional success, roll Throwback VS your Resolve to see if it takes over.

Social Ties Flaws

• *Diabolical Mentor - Your mentor has engaged in some unforgivable acts. The mobs all up in pitch frocks and torches and just because you didn't do anything wrong (or did you?) won't stop some people from stringing you up too.

• to ••••• *Enemy / Enemies (anti-Allies)- You have an enemy or perhaps a group of enemies that want to harm you. Enemies near your own level represent a 1 point flaw, while those like kings or elder vampires who are vastly more powerful would be 5 point flaws.
• One enemy of moderate power.
•• Two enemies or one more powerful enemy.
••• Three enemies or a combination of more powerful enemies.
•••• Four enemies or a combination of more powerful enemies.
••••• Five enemies or a combination of more powerful enemies.

•••• Hunted - You have a fanatical hunter on your trail that seeks your udder destruction. They are beyond reason and have some sort of power, influence or authority that puts you at a disadvantage. This endangers you and your associates and family. The only way to deal with this is to put and end to this hunter. (if you are a mortal, you can still take this.... and it dosn't matter they are still convinced you are a monster!)

• *Infamous Mentor - Your mentor is not liked or trusted by their cohorts and this fairs poorly if you wish to get in good with them. At best they not think well of your choice in mentors, at worst they may see a likeness in you.

• *Insane Mentor - Your Mentor's grip on reality is long gone and they are dangerously insane. This reflects badly on you, and there insane schemes may draw you into danger as well.

• *Mentor's Resentment - While forced to teach you for one reason or another your mentor dislikes and wishes you ill will and seeks to harm you, and given the smallest opportunity will do so, they may even attack you if provoked!

••• *Notoriety - Lets face it, you have a bad reputation. What ever you did to earn it, you have a 2 dice penalty to all social dice rolls with the appropriate group for your char archetype or your social in-group of choice. (this has to be one you HAVE to participate in)

• *Twisted Apprenticeship - Rather your mentor didn't like you or they just had a weird sense of humor, everything they taught you was wrong. This is mainly intended for supernatural beings who's interactions with there own kind and knowledge about there world have been tainted heavly and there world turned upside down, only to be turned upside down again finding everything they thought they knew was wrong, is now wrong again..... what jerks these teachers be. Still it is kinda funny.

•• *Vengeance - You have a score to settle and are obsessed with wreaking it on the guilting party. Getting your revenge won't be easy though.
  WoD Rules: You must spend a point of willpower to overcome your desire for a scene.
  CoD Suggested Rules: You must spend a point of willpower to overcome your desire for a scene.

• ••••• Wards (anti-Retainer) - Wards are weaker NPCs that you care greatly about and take care of. Generally this indicates the number of wards, however individual wards can be worth more than one point. More 'valuable' wards come from those who attract more attention to themselves or bigger targets, are weaker or more venerable in ways, and/or are in general more trouble keeping safe (accident prone adventure seeking adenine junkies with weakened immune systems for all the points!)

Cross-system Cross-version Merits
Location Merits
Due to the nature of these merits and flaws nearly all of them can only be bought at char creations and must be gained through RP afterwords.

••• Mansion - You own a large mansion, a home with 25 or more rooms, as well as the surrounding estate. The servants, if you have any, are provided by this merit. Though they will do nothing but take care of the place and there is nothing special about them unless you buy the particular merits. The mansion is assumed to have the most current security available and a fence around the place. You should decide the location and condition of the mansion as it will determine how much attention the place may draw.

•• Nightclub - You own a Moderate sized nightclub, maybe even one of the hottest spots in the city. The club brings in enough money to suport you in moderate luxury. ($1,000 a month, but it can grow if the place is taken care of well), but more importantly than money is the prestige.

Changeling Merits and Flaws
Changeling Merits

•• *Faerie Eternity - After your Chrysalis you seamed to stop aging, and now age like fae of old. Your life span is ten times longer than the average person.

•••• *Iron Resistance - Cold iron don't cause you the slightest of pain, however it still causes Banality after extended contact.
  WoD Rules: Roll Perception + Intelligence (diff 7) to recognize cold Iron to avoid any accidents.
  CoD Suggested Rules: Composure + intelligence - 1 dice to recognize cold Iron to avoid any accidents.

••• or •••• Oracle - Cost 3 for House Beaumayn and House Scathach, anyone else it cost 4. A birthright from direct descendants of Morrigan herself, chars are true prophits and there use of the art of Soothsay is the best if the Dreaming.
  WoD Rules: -2 difficulty on all rolls involving the Soothsay art.
  CoD Sugested Rules: +2 dice on all rolls involving the Soothsay art.

••••• *Oath of the Honor-Bound Allies - A pact entered between a member of the house of Scathach and another house. This merit gives access to combat skills special to this merit (see bellow in combat skills bellow for full details) in addition it allows members of the house of Scathach to preform the rite to declare this oath and fae of other houses a permanent bonus of +1 dice to ether Melee/Weaponry or Brawl.
   When entering this oath the Scathach loses his house boon agenist all members of the kith to whitch he has sworn the oath, while the commoners new bonus will not work agenst members of the House Scathach. If a party should deliberately commit vile deed against any member of the allied house/kith they lose the benefits (including the skills gained) from the oath while the other party of the pact dose not lose anything.
   To cast the rite each member must exchange some of there blood and 1 point of glamour and the caster must spend a point of glamor as well (2 total if they are involved). The caster must have at least Fae 2 (lofty noble) and Gremayre 3 to learn it. (not sure how this would work for CoD)

••••• or ••••••• *Phantom Fate - If a Scathach survives the Trial of Shadows they gain this merit for free, some however are just born with it. It cost 5 for members of the house of Scathach and 7 for any other house. They taken up a contrarian relationship to Fate's design, and have become truly adept at camouflaging there patterns.
  WoD Rules: +3 difficulty to use Soothsay on them. This includes beneficial affects as well. They may not have Merits or Flaws pertaining to Luck.
  CoD Suggested Rules: - 3 dice to any attemps to use Soothsay on them. They can not have Merits, Conditions, or Tilts pertaining to Luck.
  General Suggestion: Expand this to all powers reading fate and manipulating luck.

••• Poetic Heart - You have a truly inspired soul within you and are destined to be a great hero and/or artist, and thus Glamour shields you from Banality. You are able to make a willpower roll to avoid gaining Banality once per chapter/story.

••••••• *Regeneration - Your faerie nature is very strong and you heal much faster than others. You heal one health level of chimerical damage any round you take no other action but resting, one physical health level every hour, and heal twice as fast as this in a free hold. Wounds inflicted by cold iron are not affected by this merit.
  General Suggestion: Aggravated wounds take 3 hours to heal, or 1 glamour per wound to heal at this rate.

••••• *Seeming's Blessing - Your Birthrigh's affect your mortal body as well as your fae mien. Thus any attribute bonuses that would normally would only affect your fae mien now affects the whole of your being.

••••• *Sphere Natural / Art Adept / Contract Specialist -  You are able to utilize one of the arts with greater ease than other changelings can. Can only be taken once.
  WoD Rules: You way 3/4ths as much exp to raise your chosen art, and must be taken at char creation.
  CoD Suggested Rules: You gain +2 dice when using a chosen Art/Contract.

• to ••••• *Trod
You possess access to a trod that leads to other earthly destinations, or even to destinations, or even to destinations within the Dreaming. Trods are usually situated within freeholds, but not all freeholds have trods. Your trod may be situated in your freehold (if you have the Holdings Background), or it may stand on its own. Trods do not necessarily correspond in power tot he freehold in which they are situated. It is possible to have an immensely powerful trod within a minor freehold (or vice versa). Trods are tied to the cycles of nature (seasons, movement of the planets, etc.) and are only accessible at certain times. The player and the Storyteller should decide at which times the character's trod may be opened.

A trod that is open one half of the total time in a year may only be accessible at night, or on even numbered days, or from Beltaine to Samhain. Several very powerful trods, such as the one at Tara-Nar exceed the scale listed below.

The Legendary Silvers Gate trod was was rumored to lead everywhere. Any trod purchased with this Background is assumed to be relatively safe for the changeling at both ends (it doesn't lead to the Nightmare Realms, etc.). The only exception are trods which lead to the Deep Dreaming, which cannot be predicted.

Please note that mere ownership of a trod does not necessarily grant the ability to open it.
WoD/CoD Rules: Trods don't exist in CoD but if adapted they would have the same rules.
• 1 local destination, accessible one forth of the time.
•• 1 local destination, accessible half the time; or 2-3 local destinations, available one fourth of the time; or 1 local destination, accessible all the time.
••• 2-3 Local destinations and one regional destination accessible half the time; or 2-3 local destinations, one regional destination, and one Near Dreaming Destination, accessible one fourth of the time, or 2-3 local destinations, accessible all the time.
•••• 4-5 local destinations, two regional, one national (e.g., Concordia) and two Near Dreaming destinations, accessible half the time; or 4-5 local destinations, two regional, one national, one Near Dreaming, one Far Dreaming, accessible one fourth of the time; of 2-3 local destinations and one regional destination available all the time; or 2-3 local destinations, one regional destination and one Near Dreaming destination, accessible half of the time.
••••• 4-5 local destinations, 3-4 regional, two national, two Near Dreaming, one Deep Dreaming, accessible half the time; or 4-5 local destinations, 4-5 regional, four national, two Near Dreaming, two Far Dreaming, one Deep Dreaming (maybe as far as Arcadia Gate), accessible one fourth of the time; or 2-3 local destinations, one regional destination, and one Near Dreaming Destination, accessible all the time.

••• *Wings - You have beautiful chimerical wings, they need to be free or they will reduce your dexterity by one. You can fly for short periods of time (up to ST but at the very least your stamina and/or strength in rounds, at the most in hours) but not in the sight of mortals.... it would be a bad idea to do so where mortals might catch sight of you mid-flight!



Changeling Flaws



• Changeling's Eyes - Your eyes are a startling and strange color, maybe emerald green, violet, or yellow. This is a sign that you are a changeling, recognizable to those who know the ancient lore and/or old wives tales.

• to ••• *Chimerical Disability - Part of your Seeming is damaged and no longer exists due to a past altercation. Exsample flaws:
 • - Something with little affect on your life like a leg, you can still walk with your physical legs but trying to ride a chimerical mount would be hard and you might forget and try and kick a chimerical being with the wrong leg and do no damage.
 •• - Something more detrimental, like a missing eye causing you to have no chimerical depth perception as the flaw one eyed.
 ••• - A real pain like a missing hand meaning you can't hold chimerical items with that hand.

••••• *Chimerical Magnet - For some reason chimera notice you more often than usual, this dose not mean they like you. You attract chimerical creatures to you, and they follow you around all the time.... this can be good, though more often it's not.

••• Cleared Mists - The Mists make mortals forget seeing Kithain use there powers, but for some reason this don't happen for you, making you a liability to others and causing you to have to use your powers more carefully.

•• to ••••• Echoes - Your connection to the Dreaming is stronger than most Kithain. This gives you some benefits but it also exposes you to the affects of some superstitious believes. Some examples:
  •• - Salt or breath thrown over one's own shoulder for luck protects mortals from your powers for the scene. A mortal using your full name can command thre tasks from you, you need only follow the exact wording.
  ••• - You can't enter a home with out permission (not necessarily the owner) or preforming a small favor for the owner. Cold iron or religious symbols on an entrance keep you from entering. Sound of church bells pain you as much as cold iron bells do.)
  •••• - You (wod- gain banality / cod- have a mild braking point) when you hear church bells ring. Four leaf clovers protect mortals from your powers. Four leaf clovers you pick bring you luck so long as the petals are intact, it need not be on you. A mortal waring there coat inside out is invisible to you. Religious symbols repeal you and a symbol's shadow can harm you. Holy ground harms you when you do so (not contentiously but only to enter)
  ••••• - Mushroms grow into faerie rings around where you live. Glamor no longer hides your powers,. Chimerical creatures are more real to you and hurt you more but your chimerical weapons can harm mortals. Weak willed peoople will likely follow you simply by request, becoming hipnotized by your voice. You must make a willpower roll to enter holy ground, doing so still harms you. People waring cold iron or religious symbols are immune to your powers.

••• *Forsworn - At some point you where proven guilty as an oathbraker but avoided punishment by taking the Oath of the Forsworn. This not only damages your reputation and honor, but makes it hard to get others to believe your promises.
  WoD Rules: You are at +2 difficulty in all social rolls involving attempts to persuade others in the sincerity or validity of your word.
  CoD Sugested Rules: You are -2 dice in all social rolls involving attempts to persuade others in the sincerity or validity of your word.

••••• *Greedy Glamour - Only applicable when playing with Bunks. In this case you must preform an extra bunk with no benefit to cast a cantrip. In addition to spend a point of Glamour for extra success you must preform yet another bunk.

••• to ••••• *Iron Allergy - Most Kithain don't care to much for Cold iron, as it causes Banality and Pain, but to you it causes actual damage.
  ••• - You take a level of chimerical damage every round in contact with cold iron.
  •••• - You take one real level of damage every three rounds.
  ••••• - You take damage if you are just standing with in a foot of iron.
  General Suggestion: make cold iron do more damage or lower armor agents it.

• to ••••• Slipped Seeming - Your fae seeming bleeds into your mortal body making what you are obvious to those who know what they are looking for. The more points the more the features bleeding through stand out, the harder they are to explain away, and the more they give away what you are. A slight blush might be a one point flaw, while a pair of horns would be five. Regardless there is no bonuses given from these.

•• *Wings - You have beautiful chimerical wings, they need to be free or they will reduce your dexterity by one. They unfortunately are only good for looks (though the ST might reduce fall damage or let you glide a very short distance) and you can't fly. You do gain a one dice bonus for powers that would give you flight, or when something dose allow you to fly.

•• *Wyld Mind - Your mind is an extremely chaotic and unpredictable place. You have a hard time concentrating on any one thing for very long.
  WoD Rules: You must make a willpower roll (difficulty 4) for every extended action roll after the second.
  WoC Suggested Rules: You must make a willpower roll + 2 dice for every extended action roll after the second.

••• The Charioteer Goad Feat - An armed feat taught by Nockers that lets one heap verbal abuse upon there weapon until, eager to prove it's wielder wrong, attacks or parries foes on it's own.
  WoD/CoD Rules: Spend 1 point of glamor. Roll Manipulation+Intimidation to attack or parry with a weapon (WoD - use manipulation instead of strength for damage). Your actions are at -1 dice while berating the weapon. Using this with Autumn World weapons require the character to call upon the wyrd. (non chimerical weapons require extra glamor)
••• The Disrespectful Left Side of the Chariot Feat - An unarmed feat taught by Pooka, one taunts a target so fiercely they make a mistake.
  WoD Rules: Roll Manipulation + Persuassion with a difficulty of targets willpower + 4 (max 10). Each success reduces there perception pool by 1 (to a minimum of 2) for there next action. Each future attempt against the same opponent losses efficacy by one success.
  CoD Suggested Rules: Roll Manipulation + Persuassion contested by the targets Resolve + Composure. Each success reduces there perception or ranged attack dice pools by one dice (to a minimum of 2 before penalties) for there next action. Each future attempt against the same opponent is at -1 dice.
  General Suggestion: Exspand this to include all the opponents dice polls.
••• The Tounge of the Satirist Feat - Counting as ether an armed or unarmed this feat taught by Eshu aims to apply the marial focus of the Scathach to the volatile arena of wordplay.
  WoD Rules: Spend 1 point of glamor and roll Manipulation/Charisma + Leadership/Persuasion diff 8, lasts for a half hour per success. lowers diff of persuasion and leadership rolls by 1.
  CoD Suggested Rules: Spend 1 point of glamor and roll Presence/Manipulation + Persuasion/Socialize - 2 dice, last for a half hour per success. Gives +1 dice on persuasion and socialize rolls.
•••• The Apple Feat - An unarmed feat taught by boggans, this feat allows the char to preform an extra noncombat action while engaged in combat. Developed by a famous cef Deuce "Hasty" Blancmange, was said to prepare a seven-course meal while holding off a coterie of hungry redcaps.
  WoD/CoD Rules: Spend 1 point of glamor, roll Dexterity+Athletics (WoD - Diff 7) last one turn per success. Story teller may raise diff/reduce dice for this roll or raise the glamor cost if the action is to complex or the situation to distracting, or they may rule it just impossible. In the human world and in the presence of unenchanted/unawakned can have an impact on this.
••••• The Respectful Right Side of the Chariot Feat - This potent armed or unarmed Troll feat allows the warrior to force an "honorable truce" with an opponent, temporarily forcing the adversary to cease hostilities.
  WoD/CoD Rules: Spend 1 point of Glamor and roll Manipulation + Empathy in a contested roll against the targets permanent Willpower. Success suspends hostilities for the remainder of the scene. Subsequent uses against an enemy give a -1 dice penalty per attempt. If anyone brakes this truce the Dreaming exacts it's revenge (woD gain 1 permanent point of Banality) (CoD this is a major braking point), and they lose 2 points of strength (to a minimum of 1) for the rest of the scene.
