Goblin Contracts

Goblin Contracts, unlike regular Contracts, are not chained, and any clause rank may be bought without its prerequisites.

Fate's Harvest allows the following clauses, with the caveat that if you are, say, permanently changing another character, whether physically, mentally, emotionally or by the expedient of removing them from the mortal coil, you MUST have their permission to do so.

This is non-negotiable.

Abuse of goblin powers will net you disciplinary action.


The powers below are arranged into loose "families" of related clauses.
Please see the book for all drawbacks, catches and costs. Costs do vary for each level.

Unlike regular Contracts, Goblin Contracts operate more along the lines of tokens; using their power always has a drawback.

Goblin Contract lvl 2

Dice pool: Wyrd + Socialize

When this power is cast upon a sleeping subject, the caster causes them to talk in thier sleep about any subject that they wish. This must be cast in the direct physical presence of the sleeper.

Dramatic Failure: The caster immediately falls unconsious and starts talking in thier sleep about thier deepest darkest secrets
Failure: Nothing happens.
Success: The caster may ask one question of the sleeper per sucess, and the sleeper will answer in thier sleep, usually in disjointed dream thick mumbles. She might remember dreaming of these secrets, but not of speaking them.
Exceptional Success: In addition to the extra questions, the subject will have no memory of even dreaming about it.

Drawback: After casting this power, whenever the caster sleeps for the next week, he/she/they will talk in thier sleep, usually revealing secrets to whomever may be around to listen.
