Perks are advantages your character has over other characters. How's it work? You pick four, leave a response to this thread and write them into your MRP/TRP. Note that non-combat perks (except Pacifist Prodigy) do not "stack" on a single roll. Also note that a roll of 1 will invalidate any roll-based bonuses and you will suffer the full consequence.
Agile: Adds +3 to all rolls based on fast movement and balance.
Charismatic: Adds +3 to all rolls based on speech.
Charmer: Adds +3 to all rolls based on seduction.
Deft Hands; Adds +3 to all rolls based on lockpicking and engineering.
Nimble Fingers: Adds +3 to all rolls based on pickpocketing and other feats of sleight of hand.
One With the Shadow: Adds +3 to all rolls based on stealth.

Rending Strikes: Your attacks cause your target to bleed for 0.5 damage every two rounds until they are healed or die.
Companion: You are allowed the use of a combat pet or companion. They deal half damage to enemies and have half health. Companions do not gain any perks or benefit from yours. (Minimum damage is always 0.5)
Cheat Death: Any attack that would bring your health to 0 would instead bring it to 0.5 (This effect can only occur once per event)
Clever: You never suffer penalties to your rolls from enemies' abilities.
When using an ability perk first roll d20 to see if you will be taking damage in addition to using your ability. You will not attack while using an ability, however.

Selfless Defender: Use your successful roll to save any ally from a failed roll. (Can only be used twice per combat encounter. You will take damage based on your success relative to their failure if any.)
Note that all ability perks can be used by anyone and that you can redescribe them in combat as you want. I ask only that you keep the original name of the perk for OOC purposes.
