Disciplines

Disciplines

Each race starts with three disciplines, though new disciplines can be learned as your character progresses through the story.  New characters start with Level One Disciplines. In general there are five levels for each discipline (though it is rumoured there are powerful characters out there with level 6 and 7 disciplines). 

Your discipline will be defined by your race. Be careful of an over reliance on your disciplines as some disciplines, when used regularly over a long period of time can cause negative effects.

To use a discipline simply state you are using a discipline to a story teller. A check will have to be made, and the ST will generally give you the score for that check. Generally you will be required to roll at least a 5 on a d10 for you to be successful in a discipline. Please see the dice roll thread for examples of the results of checks here: INSERT LINK

In order for a character to progress to level two they must have achieved level one in a discipline. In order to progress to level three the character must possess level two and so on.
