Chargen Only Merits

Ambidextrous

(Chargen-only)
Cost:
Prerequisites: --

Your character does not suffer the -2 penalty for using his off hand in combat or to perform other actions.

Available only at character creation.


Giant

(Chargen-only)
Cost:
Prerequisites: --

Your character is massive. She's well over six feet tall and crowds part when she approaches. She's Size 6 and gains +1 Health.

Available only at character creation.

Drawback: Buying clothing is a nightmare. Fitting in small spaces is difficult at best.


Nine Lives

(Chargen-only)
Cost: • to •••••
Prerequisites: Atariya, Damn Lucky

Any time your character might die (or should die) in a scene, you can cash in one dot of this Merit. Fate conspires to save you at the last minute. You’re moved up to some stable state and removed from immediate danger. You’ll pop up later okay — banged up, whatever, but alive. Characters with this Merit do not necessarily know how many lives they have left. Because of the nature of being lucky, it’s very hard to tell if what they had was a brush with death or just a brush with misfortune.

Notes: Dots of Nine Lives can only be purchased at character creation. When you cash in a dot of Nine Lives, you can change it out with the Sanctity of Merits rule (see the Chronicles of Darkness Rulebook, p. 43).


Small Framed

(Chargen-only)
Cost:
Prerequisites: --

Your character is diminutive. He's not five feet, and it's easy to walk into him without noticing. He's Size 4 and thus has one fewer Health box. He gains +2 to any rolls to hide or go unnoticed, and this bonus might apply any time being smaller would be an advantage, such as crawling through smaller spaces.

Available only at character creation.

Drawback: In addition to lower Health, your character might be overlooked or not taken seriously by some people.
