Using The Table

Costs, and difficulties can be calculated from the effect required. In general you use the largest potential cost as the cost/Diff if there’s any doubt, but as always the Referee decides.

For example:

  • To Force a reroll of a Mercari’s dice roll… Diceroll (+1), Mercari (+12) Reroll (+1)- So that costs 14 Chi or is diff 28
  • Increase your Awe facet boon (assume Boon 13) by 1 (will also reduce the Anti-Facet Jeer Boon by one) Self (+0), Facet (+13) Chi cost =13 or Diff 26
  • Save the game (creating a Chronolith event) for yourself. Self (+0), Save (+1) Chi cost = 1 or Diff 2
  • Loading the Game (returning to a Chronolith event earlier this scene) Self (+0), Reload (+8), A few minutes ago (+5) = 13 Chi or Diff 26 (it should be noted that everyone else also returns to that Chronolith. Mercari etc also pay if they want to keep their memories of the reload.
  • Save for the Party. save(+1) Pact (+16) Cost 17 Chi Diff 34
  • Reload the Party’s last Chronolith. Reload (+8) Pact (+16) A couple of days(+12) Cost 36 Chi Diff 72
  • Learn a Proficiency. Proficiency (+1) Self (+0) Cost 1 Chi Diff 2
  • Flashback: Instantly learn a Proficiency (in the Past). Flashback (+6) Self(+0) Cost 6 Chi Diff 12
  • Replace a Skill Descendant. Boon (+Boon) Skill (+2) Replace (+3) Cost 5+Boon Diff 2x Boon+10
  • Summon an Nuisance Extra for hours. Boon (+Boon) Nuisance (+2) <8 Hours (+8) Cost 10+Boon Diff 2x Boon +20 
  • Alter own Power. Boon (+Boon) Power(+7) Self(+0) Cost 7+Boon Diff 2x Boon+14
  • Create Mortal Wound at 30 metres. Mortal Wound(+12) 30 Metres Range (+30/+7/+2) Cost +42/+19/+14 Diff 84/38/28
  • Puppet Possession of a Skill Descendant for a Scene. Skill(+2), Puppet (+8) Scene(+5) Cost 15 Chi Diff 30

It should be noted that Creating and Summoning Descendants and Characters may have additional costs
