Countdown

Type: Supernatural
Cost:
Prerequisites: Atariya, Nine Lives

No one ever sees the bullet with his name on it, but an Atariya with this Merit at least knows how many other bullets are in the chamber. The character is acutely aware of how many times he’ll narrowly escape death. This may manifest as a number in his dreams, a mysterious tattoo he doesn’t remember getting that changes each time he dies, or Mr. Lucky showing up to hold up fingers whenever the character wonders about it.

Drawback: Knowing how many times you can run into a bad situation and live to tell about it has its own internal pressure. Characters with this Merit suffer a Condition related to how they cope with that stress. For example, a character actively paranoid about his own deaths may suffer a permanent Paranoid Condition.
