Total Recall Portram recalls all trivial details of his life, in the case of important details the GM may call for an Int test Sorcerer Through the influence of Dei-Phages hand, the art of sorcery has been whispered into Portrams mind. He gains an effective Psy Rating (2) and may know a number of powers equal to his WP bonus x3. However, every spell cast earns him 1d10 corruption - his WP bonus


Tempered Will Whenever the character would face a very hard WP test (-30) the maximum penalty is instead lowered to -20

Divination The truth is subjective: +3 Int, + 1d10 insanity
Dei-Phage's Hand Portram has replaced his left hand, from the shoulder down, with the left hand of the demon prince Dei-Phage. The hand is utterly invulnerable to most forms of conventional damage, providing 8 points of Armour to the left arm. Whenever the hand is used to kill another living being, Portram must make a willpower test or gain a further point of corruption. The arm is of course more than decorative, it is a powerful weapon
Boneslivers: R: 60m, Rate: S/2/-, Dam: 1d10+5R, Pen: 2, Clip: 10, Reload: Special, Special: Tearing
Claw: Melee, Dam: 1d10+2R, Pen: 4, Special: Hungry
Reload: The Dei-phage’s Hand does not need ammunition, instead growing a bony core from which ammunition is flaked off as needed. It can only be reloaded by draining the blood via the Hungry special rule or by the owner suffering one level of Fatigue to feed it his own blood. A single Fatigue level reloads the weapon to full capacity as a Free Action.
Hungry: A character taking damage from the Dei-Phage’s Hand in melee must make an Ordinary (+10%) Toughness Test or suffer 1 level of Fatigue as the weapon drains his blood. This only affects living creatures with a circulatory system – creatures with the Machine, Amorphous, or Strange Physiology traits may be immune if the Game Master determines that they would not be edible by the hand.

Stuff to know!

Creating Pentagramic wards Creating a ward requires a Hard (-20) Forbidden Lore: Demonology test. Success creates a ward with a +0 modifier, with every 2 degrees of success imposing a -10 penalty on the Willpower test which a warp entity is required to make in order to bypass the ward
- Temporary wards: A temporary ward takes 1d10 minutes to create (though longer on larger objects, such as a house). The ward lasts for 1d5+degree of success hours.
- Ward effects: A warp entity wishing to interact with a ward (be it crossing one, touching a warded object or person, and so on) must pass a Willpower test to do so. If the entity fails the test by three (3) degrees or more, it suffers from a malediction. Passing the test by 3 or more degrees destroys the ward. Unless the ward is destroyed, an affecting entity must make the test each time
Creating drugs and medicine For the purposes of creating drugs and medicine, Medicae my be used as an extended action in place of Chem-use. The crafting of such items is a process of 3 parts: Skill, material and time. skill up to the player, while availability of material is both situational and GM dependant. Crafting time is a separate issue.
- Craft times: Natural drugs: 1d5 hours (4 extended action successes required), Synthetic drugs: 2d10 hours (8 extended action successes required)
