Chronically Shy: 1 Point. You've always been one to avoid the spotlight. You are at +1 difficulty when dealing socially with people you don't know, and at +2 when dealing with large crowds.

Non-confrontational: 1 Point. You really dislike putting yourself out there. You must make a willpower check to speak out against the common agreement.

Pacifist: 5 points. You absolutely despise fighting. You must make a willpower roll difficulty 8 in order to take a violent action of any kind, or be overcome by your conscience.

Weak-willed: 3 Points. You have never been much of one for rising to the challenge. You are at +2 difficulty to all willpower challenges, and cannot have a willpower greater then 6.


The House Always Wins: 24
Prerequisites: None
Restrictions: None
Willpower Cost: Variable
Description: The House sometimes changes people in weird and unusual ways. If you take this power, you can put as many points as you want into it. Then, after the rest of your character creation is done, Bright will use those points to add a new and original power or powers to your character. They may relate to your character, or be completely unusual, but that's the risk you take.

Reincarnation: 6
Prerequisites: None
Restrictions: None
Willpower Cost: N/A
Description: Walter is a member of a seven-entity cycle that has become entangled with one another metaphysically due to their simultaneous entry to the House, taking each others' places in a cycle.

If Walter suffers a physical death (that is, his Physical Health drops below 0), his body will vanish, and in his place will appear Daniel Shapiro. Walter does not recover Mental Health over time, as it is a fundamentally unstable arrangement. If a character with Reincarnation suffers a mental death, they are removed from the cycle and cease to exist.


Walter is 6'0", blond hair and blue eyes. Well-sculpted physique, youthful face with bright eyes which he never turns up because he's always looking at the ground.


Grew up in Portland, Oregon. Always had a keen eye for things and was very bright, but had absolutely terrible social skills. He didn't have ASD, he just utterly failed at communicating with others and involving himself socially. He went into practice as a private eye after high school and was relatively successful at it. He opened a door to the House and was merged with six other entities as they entered at the same time. He absorbed much of the latent energy in this reaction, giving him House-related powers.

Total Freebie Points: 21 + 10 Hooks = 31
