Edge - Arcane Background (Grifter)
Arcane Background (Grifter) Background

Consummate swindlers who have figured out a way to con arcane power from the manitous. As always, this power comes with a price, and in the case of grifters, that price can be terribly high.

Backlash: A grifter who rolls a 1 on the Spellcasting die (regardless of the Wild Die), is automatically Shaken (but see Overdose, below).

  • Indulgence: A grifter must indulge in their particular vice at least once a day to keep their conduit to the Hunting Grounds open. If they do not, they recover Power Points at a rate of 1 point every 3 hours instead of the usual 1 per hour.
  • Magic: Grifters may use Edges that require Arcane Background (Magic), except Wizard.
  • Overdose: A grifter who rolls a 1 on both their Spellcasting and Wild Die suffers a particularly powerful form of Backlash. He must roll on the Overdose Table on page 52 of Deadlands Noir.
