Soft Trauma: Has anyone ever picked this? It's really intriguing to me, but seems like it would have definite pitfalls. I've never seen anyone pick it in any actual plays. Of all the traumas, it's the least romanticized or admired in the movies. But I remember how it effected Arthur Shelby (a.k.a. the Platonic Ideal of Blades in the Dark character, a.k.a. trauma magnet) and how gripping it was.

I think there's an idea/fear that the player has to constantly pull out the pacifist/paladin lawful good card, basically being absent during fight scenes, or throwing a monkey wrench into every combat scenario. The way i'd play it, is to more often push myself to rack up stress, and take relevant devil's bargains constantly. Show that the violence takes a toll, and that the character has to often stop lest they get drawn into more trauma.

Faction list for SOCAD. This has been the funnest part so far.

I've been working on a hack tentatively called Streets of Crime A.D.. It's based on mashing up:

Robocop
Golan-Globus ninja movies
C.O.P.S. (cartoon)
A-Team
Dirty Harry
Satanic worshippers in 80's media
stuff like that.

Anyway here's a cobbled-together ninja playbook. I'm also toying with replacing vice with skeletons, which kinda work like obligations from edge of the empire but more central to the mechanics.

After some thought, I've decided that killing Lord Scurlock's butler (while having a -1 standing) is an act of war. How would you handle a war between a tier 0 cult and LS? Would it be any different than any other type of war? I think yes.

I couldn't find any so I made some simple clock tokens for Roll20.
