Quiet _ _ ♦

Posted on Wednesday, April 24th, 2013 at 22:05
Quiet _ _ ♦ is the Yin Facet of receptive silence. In that silence rest quiescent woods, tranquil trees, hushed leaves and even the silent speech of books and plain libraries (and mute, conservative librarians). Sober, calm and studied Quiet is the only way to soothe its opposite Fury.

Annex Root

Books, Mental, Serene, Meditation based Annexes

If you are playing a student, especially of eastern arts or religions then you may want a Quiet Root Facet.

Annex Channel

Silent, wooden or book learning Annexes

If you are playing a stealthy assassin, an Eelafin tree-shaper or simply a bookish nerd you might require a Quiet Channelling Facet

Erode attacks can take millions of years to affect a mountain or rock, but a sandstorm can have the same effect on a person or vehicle in a few minutes. Accelerated time, like a Never-Time, Paradox or Chronoclysm Bomb can also have Erode effects. Targets are usually “destroyed” rather than “killed” by Erode attacks. Erode attacks do double damage (x2) against Earth, Metal and Toil Incarna.

When you need to model plants, or any wooden structure, or if you have a pressing need to play a sentient vegetable then you'll want to look at a Quiet Formation Facet.

The Quiet Monster is exactly that, almost (or entirely) silent. It is the creeping death or the cat-footed predator that strikes without warning from ambush and vanishes without trace. Quiet Monsters may pull an play an additional card when they act silently.

Umbral Effects

  • NEED: Tranquility, the User cannot be affected by strong emotions.
  • LIMIT: Must be used silently or Halve Score.
  • SACRIFICE: Practice, the User must practice the Annex for Annex Boon Reduced hours each week for Quiet Umbral Boon Reduced Weeks before they can activate. Failure to Practice will stop Annex from Activating.
  • SPECIAL: Must roll over the Quiet Umbral Boon Value on a d200, Yin may be spent on d6’s to increase the roll to activate the Annex.

Nimbed Effects

  • FOCUS: Subtle, The Annex's use can be so subtle that it may require days of study to determine the complete effects of the Annex. Whilst there will be an immediate obvious effect, there will be other more subtle effects at play. Add Quiet Boon Reduced to the Pips of all Ordeal cards 'prepared' with this Annex.
  • EXPAND: The Annex automatically activates in response to certain stimuli. When activated by the “trigger” the use does not use up a character’s action. This Nimbed is required to allow an Annex or Descendant to be added to an Ordeal Proficiency / Initiative roll. RT applies but not GRT (see also Rook “Passive” Nimbed).
  • REWARD: Practice, Draw Quiet Nimbed Boon Double Reduced Extra cards in the Annex's action.
  • TRICK: Sets, the Annex may play multiple cards of the same Pips as though they were a single card. E.g. Playing 5♠, 5♣, 5♦, 8♠ and 8♥ counts as playing only Two cards.
