Merits, Plain (2nd Edition)

From Codex of Darkness

All these Merits besides Plain Reader itself have Plain Reader as a prerequisite.

Merit Rating Prerequisites Description Book
Plain Reader You've devoted your soul to radical pacifism. All acts of violence cause breaking points, but recover Willpower. HL 92
The Consequences of Violence When you are struck and harmed unprovoked and do not respond in kind, your assailant then treats all acts of violence as breaking points. HL 94
I'm Bleeding on You When you suffer damage by violence, each point penalizes further attacks by witnesses for the scene. HL 93
Most Infected Thing I've Ever Seen •• You may convert damage taken into a Condition reflecting an ongoing Tilt from injury. Intensive care resolves Conditions formed by less than five points. Conditions formed by five points or more are Persistent. HL 94
Over Before It Started Once per session, you may intervene to force all violence onto yourself. Roll the number of assailants and take successes as lethal damage, but recover all Willpower. HL 94
Phantom Pain I'm Bleeding on You When an assailant damages you, you may inflict an equal number of points of temporary psychological damage. This damage does not injure, kill, or last longer than a scene, but wound penalties inflict Beaten Down, falling unconscious inflicts Guilty or similar Conditions, and "dying" inflicts a Persistent Condition. HL 94
The Push • to ••••• You may protect a third party from violent aggressors by pushing them back, step by step. The aggressors may not attack your charges and must accumulate your Merit rating in successes on Resolve + Composure rolls, one per step, to attack you. On the sixth step without being attacked, you force them to withdraw. HL 94
You Are Being Recorded Announce your recorded evidence of violence and roll Presence + Expression. For the rest of the scene, no one can act violently until they successfully contest your roll with Resolve + Composure - (additional people recording). HL 93
