A Friend of the Dragon

A Friend of the Dragon

A close-knit group with shared friends and a wide circle of contacts uses this schtick to illustrate the kindness of a friend’s friends. Think of that scene where a sidekick shows up at the hero’s friend’s shop at night, in the rain, and convinces the friend to open up and help out because their mutual friend is counting on them.

This schtick lets any character in the group use the AV of any other character in the group for Knowledge or Contacts checks.These tests take more time than usual, unless it’s the end of the second act and the hero needs to be rescued tonight. Either way, it takes however long the GM says it does.

With one schtick in A Friend of the Dragon, these checks are made at –3 AV; each additional schtick reduces this penalty by one. A group can’t have more than three schticks in A Friend of the Dragon. Other penalties may apply, though, especially if any of the characters in question are not especially friendly.
