Cryptozoologist Edge

One of the characters in my Deadlands game is a student of biology and the occult, in the vein of Charles Fort and other cryptozoologists. I wrote up this professional Edge for him.

Cryptozoologist

Requirements: Knowledge (Biology) d8, Knowledge (Occult) d8, Survival d4

You have made an extensive study of unusual animals that some believe don’t exist, such as the Mojave rattler, prairie ticks, and the chupacabra. You know that such strange animals exist, and have learned something about how to deal with them. You gain a +2 bonus on Knowledge (Occult) checks to identify and answer questions about supernatural creatures. As an action, you may attempt to analyze such a creature (or group of creatures of the same type) with a Knowledge (Occult) roll. On a success, gain one of the following bonuses. On a raise, allies within 6″ of you that can understand your instruction gain the same bonus.

  • Gain a +1 to damage rolls against the creature or creatures.
  • Gain a +1 bonus on all Trait rolls to resist the creature’s inherent abilities.
  • Gain a +1 bonus on all Tests of Will or Trick checks against the creature.
