- Alate Violet d6
- Stronger Together d6
- With this mutation, the Violets of a single Hive add this Asset die rating to any roll that directly benefits a member of their Hive. This could be anything from aiding them on an action (whether limited or full assistance) or intervening in an attack that targets them directly. It also applies to social rolls made among Hive members and for each member of the Hive to resist any form of mental influence that would cause them to betray or otherwise harm a member of their Hive.
- Teamwork d2
- Violet Hives with this mutation work in tandem together with incredible efficiency, able to accomplish incredible feats together that they never could apart. d2 Rating: When one hive member assists the other on a single skill roll, which can be done even when otherwise not normally allowed, the primary actor can re-roll their Skill die and take the higher result. This ability stacks with existing teamwork rules.
- Light Efficiency d4
- Violets with this Asset have a particularly efficient way of processing and storing Charges. Upon taking this Asset, the Violet gains a charge in half the exposure time (2 hours instead of 4), can store two additional charges, and can go twice as long before losing a charge (Vitality instead of [Vitality / 2] days).
- Potent Power d4
- Violets normally use their Alate or Drone Asset rating as the damage rating for offensive powers. Each d2 purchased in this Asset provides an additional +1 increase to the Violet’s damage rating. For example, a Violet with a Drone Violet Asset d4 and a Potent Power Asset d6 would deal a d10 damage with her offensive power.
- Secondary Mutation (Mimicry) d6
- Taking this Asset allows the Alate to gain access to a secondary Violet mutation. At d2 this Asset grants access to Nova-Tier powers. At d4, Supernova-Tier powers. Lastly, upon achieving a d6 in this Asset, the Alate gains access to Hypernova-Tier powers of her secondary mutation.
- Conjunctive Power d4
- You’ve developed the ability to activate your mutation as part of another action. You may take a single action to activate both your mutation and take a single action as part of the same action. Both actions must affect the same target and if the conjoined action fails to affect the target your mutation also automatically fails. Examples of this Asset include an Electrokinetic delivering a charged unarmed strike to an opponent or a Pyrokineticist causing the target to erupt into flames on a successful shot from her pistol. Other non-combat examples would include the same Electrokineticist using her power to short out a security panel as she disables it but are otherwise covered by the same merit provided both actions affect the same target.
- Allure d4
- You ain’t bad to look at, thanks mom and dad. Gain a skill die bonus on all actions keyed to appearance.
- Comp Tech d10
- Some folk have a way with livestock or other people. You have a way with computer systems and the Cortex. Whenever you are working on a program, running sensor sweeps, or hacking your way into an encrypted data pad, you gain a Skill step to your roll. As a Major Trait, any bonus die you get from spending Plot Points is increased by a +2 step. That means that if you spend 1 Plot Point to get a d2, it gets increased to a d6.
- Cortex Spector d6
- You’ve gone to some effort to wipe evidence of your existence from the Cortex. A search won’t show much about your history besides your birth. Anyone attempting to dig up information on your past has a +8 added to the difficulty of their search. Casual searches will reveal almost nothing about you.
- Fightin’ Type d4
- You’re fast, and not just on your feet. You may take one non-attack action each combat turn without penalty.
- Mechanical Empathy d10
- Machines talk to you. You have a way of fixing what ails them that goes way beyond the instruction manual. For the cost of a given number of Plot Points, you gain intuitive knowledge as to what’s wrong with a particular mechanical device under your care, as well as a Skill bonus to Mechanical Engineering for any action attempting to fix said device.
- Nose for Trouble d6
- You’ve spent enough time lookin’ over your shoulder, now you’ve got a mental alarm that sounds when things are about to go south. You can make an Intelligence- or Alertness-based roll to sense trouble even when circumstances might not normally permit it, and you gain a step bonus to either Attribute when the circumstances warrant. As a Major Trait, you may also spend 1 Plot Point to negate all effects of surprise, as you sense trouble just in the nick of time to avoid getting caught with your trousers down.
- Steady Calm d4
- Some situations shake up normal folk and have them pissin’ themselves, but not you. You keep a clear head while all around you are losing theirs. You gain a Attribute bonus to Willpower to avoid being shaken, frightened, or startled.
- Fleet of Foot d4
- You move faster than most folk. Increase base movement distance by 5 feet for walking, to a total of 20 (which is then multiplied for faster movement). You also receive an Attribute Step bonus to Agility or Strength on any Athletics-based rolls involving sheer speed: running, jumping, and moving, but not dodging or similar.
- Dark Secret d4
- You’re part of a Tong family, whether you like it or not, and explainin’ that to folks can be mighty complicated. Especially if those folk are law-enforcement. Your Trait imposes a –2 Skill step when trying to explain yourself if the secret gets out. Normally, the Trait’s probably just an ongoing reason for you to get nervous.
- Memorable d4
- You’re easily recognizable. Others gain an Alertness Attribute bonus when attempting to spot you or recognize your likeness.
- Neat Freak d4
- A little dirt never hurt anybody—‘cept maybe you. Clutter, germs, and even good clean mud bother you to no end. As a Minor Complication, your issues are fairly mild and you can handle day-to-day life easily enough. You’re still constantly cleaning and tidying, attempting to establish some order in your environment, but you can concentrate on more immediate things when necessary. A significant problem, such as being forced to walk through a sewer, would force you to suffer a –2 Skill step to all actions for the rest of the scene.
- Tri-plex Junkie d4
- Shopaholic. Must shop. Must not pass up chance to shop. Sales are like crack. Penalty to resist
- Wisecracker d4
- You can’t help yourself . . . if the opportunity is there to crack a joke, especially at someone else’s expense, you’re going to take it even if it earns you a beating or it’s completely inappropriate. When this happens, you’ll receive a –2 Skill step to interactions with people you’ve offended. Or maybe you’ll receive a punch instead.
