Faction Moves

HIT THE STREETS 

When you hit the streets to get what you need, name who you’re going to and roll with their Faction. On a hit, they’re available and have the stuff. On a 7-9, choose 1: 

Whoever you’re going to is juggling their own problems 

Whatever you need is more costly than anticipated 
 

PUT A FACE TO A NAME 

When you put a face to a name or vice versa, roll with their Faction. On a hit, you know their reputation; the GM tells you what most people know about them. On a 10+, you’ve dealt with them before; learn something interesting and useful about them or they owe you a Debt. On a miss, you don’t know them or you owe them; the MC will tell you which.


INVESTIGATE A PLACE OF POWER 

When you investigate a place of power, roll with the Faction that owns it. On a hit, you see below the surface to the reality underneath. On a 10+, you can ask the MC one question about the schemes and politics of the Faction in question. 
 

CASH IN A DEBT 

When you cash in a Debt, remind your debtor why they owe you in order to… 

…make a PC: 

Do you a favor at moderate cost 

Lend a hand to your efforts 

Get in the way of someone else 

Answer a question honestly 

Erase a Debt they hold on someone 

Give you a Debt they hold on someone else 

 

…make an NPC

Answer a question honestly about their Faction 

Introduce you to a powerful member of their Faction 

Give you a worthy and useful gift without cost 

Erase a Debt they hold on someone 

Give you a Debt they have on someone else 

Give you +3 to persuade them (choose before rolling) 
 

REFUSE TO HONOR A DEBT 

When you refuse to honor a debt, roll with Heart. On a hit, you weasel out of the current deal, but still owe the Debt. On a 7-9, you choose 1: 

You owe them an additional Debt 

You lose face with their Faction 

You mark corruption 

On a miss, you can’t avoid the noose. You either honor your Debt or face the consequences: they pick two from the list above or force you to lose all the Debts owed to you. 

 

DROP SOMEONE’S NAME 

When you drop the name of someone who owes you a Debt, roll with their Faction. On a hit, their name carries weight and gives you an opening or opportunity. On a 10+, you keep the Debt and mark their Faction. On a 7-9, you have to cash in the Debt. On a miss, erase the Debt and brace yourself.
