    Something Something Persona: Understanding your Needle and Thread

    Post by Admin on Mon Aug 29, 2016 9:29 am

    Willpower is an important resource in this game. Some magic powers require a point of Willpower to be spent to activate, but more importantly spending a point when attempting a roll gives you a significant bonus, +2 dice for rolls involving a Resistance Attribute (Resolve, Stamina, Composure) and +3 dice for any other rolls. Though this can only be done once per each specific action, this can be the difference between failure and success or success and exceptional success. So this raises an important question; How do I regain Willpower?


    There are two ways to do so. First is with Rest. For each full and restful night of sleep you get you can regain one spent Willpower point.


    The second is through your Needle and Thread. Your Needle and Thread represent the identities you take to give yourself meaning and purpose in your daily lives. Each provide two ways to regain Willpower; one relatively easy method that can be done multiple times in a scene and restores one point of Willpower. The other, which restores all of your Willpower, can only be done once a chapter. These always involve great risk or momentous events for the character, like breaking points, risk of recapture, or general high drama.

    Your Needle is the role you have been given in the structure of society at large. 


    Your Thread is your hidden, vulnerable self, the person you are in the dark

    NEEDLES WE HAVE IN-GAME:

    Dealer: A Dealer understands that everything can be a commodity if you know how to give the sales pitch. They're willing to buy and sell in anything as long as someone will pay the right price.

    Regain one Willpower when you sell a good or service that could get you in meaningful trouble for providing.

    Regain all Willpower when you manage to commoditize something incredibly valuable or dangerous.



    Spy: A Spy knows that nothing is more dangerous than a secret. They make it their duty to leverage the secret truths of others against them while protecting their own.

    Regain one Willpower when you learn an important secret about someone without letting a secret of your own be discovered in the process.

    Regain all Willpower when you learn a secret that could ruin lives or change society if it were revealed.

    THREADS WE HAVE IN-GAME:

    Survivor: All changelings are survivors, but you are tough even among the Lost. You endure the burdens that would fell lesser folks.

    Regain one Willpower when you turn away from danger to take the less risky, less rewarding path.

    Regain all Willpower when you risk great danger to yourself or others in order to attain your goals.


    Innocent: You may not be the best person, but you've always tried to be a decent one. In the World of Darkness, however, this is often easier said than done.

    Regain one Willpower when you avoid taking part in activities that are illegal or you find morally questionable.

    Regain all Willpower when you actively refuse to take a significantly safer or more rewarding option due to it violating your personal morals.
