Umbral Effects

  • NEED: Danger, will only activate if the Ordeal Stakes are High.
  • LIMIT: Halve Score if used offensively.
  • SACRIFICE: Success, cumulative -Rook Umbral Boon Reduced from the Score each time the Annex is used in a Scene.
  • SPECIAL: Saving Throw, Target and User both roll Rook, if the Target rolls higher they receive a Proficiency in “Resist (this Annex)” (assuming they have a free Proficiency Slot) and the Score is Halved for this action.

Nimbed Effects

  • FOCUS: The effects of the Annex defend themselves rather than be dispelled. Wounds add Rook Nimbed Boon Reduced to their Pips for Healing, Descendants receive a “Defence” Skill with a Boon equal to the Rook Nimbed Boon. 
  • EXPAND: Passive. The Annex is rests between uses in a passive mode (using the last active roll’s score). Senses and Defences often have this Nimbed. In combat a Defence such as Armour with this Nimbed is always able to play Rook Nimbed Boon Reduced Ordeal cards in defence from your pool.
  • REWARD: Success, add One Success Level to any action or card Rook Nimbed Boon Reduced times per day.
  • TRICK: Club Flush, any time the Annex plays more than one Club all Clubs are One Level Higher.
