Star Signs – Natures

No one per person is constant in their actions. Their moods, motivations and goals shift like the stars in the sky. So it was that the gods placed reflections of the twelve aspects of life into the sky, to remind the mortal races their own internal natures.

Each session a player draws three star-sign card at the beginning of the session from the star-sign deck. Each card lists the traits and Skills considered a part of your character’s Nature that session.

If the player succeeds at an action involving any of the abilities listed on a star-sign card, they may discard that card. If a player discards all three of their cards they may completely refill their Willpower.

Below are descriptions of the star signs:
