Vicissitude Modification Rules


Vicissitude Modifications

General: Any modifications done to any PC, whether the user’s self or someone else, must be reflected in the purchasing of Merits. This allows you to purchase any Physical-related Merit at double the normal cost of the Merit after character creation. If you do not have these merits, then you do not have the modifications. Additionally, as with all use of Vicissitude for body modifications, the player must still throw the Body Crafts test to make the modification. Failure on these tests results in negative things being added to the sheet, such as negative physical traits and/or Flaws. Finally, besides purchasing the printed Merits from various books, a player may as well perform war ghoul modifications upon themselves. This too is represented by the purchasing of the merits we present below. Like above, they cost double the listed cost after creation.

Note: Vicissitude Modification is not subtle. If you have Merits from Viss Mods, you MUST costume such modifications or display them on a card or nametag while you play. You look like a monster no matter what you do. The System for War Ghoul Mods is still used as per the book, but you must purchase these merits in addition to that, to reflect the mechanics of the change. These new Merits are the only non-book Merits that may be purchased to represent Vicissitude Modifications, beyond being able to purchase printed book Physical Merits. All Modifications take time to craft; they cannot be done on the fly regardless of merits or powers. A PC may only possess a number of the Visscitude Modification Merits (listed below) equal to level of the Body Crafts Ability of the crafter (i.e., a PC with 1 dot of Body Crafts may buy only one Vicissitude Modification Merit, whereas a PC with 2 dots of Body Crafts may buy 2 Merits, etc.). Other Physical Merits do not have such a cap. You may only perform 1 Vicissitude Modification per month.
