|A storyteller is skilled at writing at telling interesting stories. Bonus for telling a story is 6% per rank, plus CHA bonus ((CHA -15 ) x 3). Storytellers know many legends. The chance that a storyteller knows a particular legend is 4% per rank, plus Know bonus ((KNOW - 15) x 3). The GM may assign modifiers for particular well-known or particularly obscure legends. |
Reading/Writing – A storyteller must be able to read and write a language at rank 6 or higher to advance beyond rank 3. In addition, he must be able to read and write at rank 8 to advance beyond rank 5, and must be able to read and write at rank 10 to advanced beyond rank 7.
Renown - As you gain rank, you also gain renown. Base chance that someone has heard of you is equal to rank x 3%, plus the person’s Courtesan rank x 2%. The GM may also include modifiers. This assumes that you have performed fairly regularly in that city.
