Personalities

Personalities are strong roleplaying Perks that allow you to apply your character’s Personality to situations and gain a strong benefit for doing so. These Perks allow players to really lean into their character’s personality and give them an advantage for doing so.
You can choose one Personality from the table below. Once per Scene, when you are in a situation where your Personality might give you some edge, you gain 1 Success on the roll. Keep in mind, though, that they cannot be applied to Attack rolls.
You must call for the Personality to be applied before the roll and then explain why it applies in that situation. The final call on whether a Personality can be applied or not rests with the GM. Personalities should be clearly applicable to a situation to gain their benefits.
If multiple Personalities or Tenets apply to a situation, you only gain the benefit of one, but only lose the use of that particular Personality or Tenet for the Scene. You can only add one automatic Success to a single roll.
All Personality perks are Tier 1 Perks.
Special: You can take multiple Personality Perks.
