Advantage: Looks Like a Pirate

 

A Bit: 5 Points, Quite Like: 15 Points, Very Close To: 30 Points, Exactly Like: 50 Points, Looks More Like a Pirate Than A Pirate Does: 100 Points

 

Your character looks and quite possibly acts in a manner that distinctly reminds the vast majority of those that see them of a pirate. This will often inspire fear in lowly peasants, as the tales of pirates plundering their way across Battal are many, and will endear you to members of the opposite sex looking for adventure. Merchants will be wary of you, and guard their wares closely when you are around. It may be helpful to enchant an animal to talk, and then perch it on your shoulder. If your character has lost a leg, they look at least "Very Close To" a pirate.

 

A Bit:

There's something rather piratey about your demeanor, dress, or actions.

  • +1 Wit
  • +1 Marketability.

 

Quite Like:

There are no doubts as to the piratey nature of your appearance. Regular folk will often remark, to your face or in secret, about the resemblance you have to a pirate (which it is clear you are not).

  • +2 Wit
  • +1 Marketability
  • Once a day, +2 to any Stamina checks you take.

 

Very Close To:

Few rival you in pirateness.

  • +2 Wit
  • +2 Marketability
  • Twice-a-day +4 Modifier to any Stamina checks taken
  • Confidence and Self Esteem lowered two during daytime, as living up to your looks prooves to be a task you were not quite prepared for.

 

Exactly Like:

It is impossible to look more like a pirate than you do, unless one actually was a pirate (A laughable situation at best).

  • +2 Wit
  • +2 Marketability
  • Twice-a-day +4 Modifier to any Stamina checks taken
  • Confidence and Self Esteem lowered two during daytime, as living up to your looks prooves to be a task you were not quite prepared for.
  • You may double any one bonus for 24 hours after ingesting an alcoholic beverage, or 2 stat bonuses for 48 hours if you ingest 6 or more alcoholic beverages after the sun has set.
  • You must take a concentration test once a day. If you fail, an overwhelming fear of ninjas invades your body and psyche. Your next two Confidence checks have a -2 penalty.

 

Looks More Like A Pirate Than A Pirate Does:

Truly, you have reached the pirate pinnacle. You are the highest of hijackers. The epitome of extortion. You're a rascal, a scoundrel, a villain and knave, devil, blacksheep, and a really bad egg (in appearance). You have transcended the common physical realm insofar as it relates to looking like pirates.

  • +6 to Confidence
  • +6 to Wit.
  • Unfortunately, you constantly long for the sea. You must take Wisdom check whenever you wish to move away from the closest body of water. If you fail, you collapse into a fetal position for 1D5 minutes, feeling seperated from your true life as a marauder of the high seas.
  • Ninjas will attack on sight, regardless of extraneous conditions.
