Choose a race and gain the corresponding move:
Halfling – When you bluff someone, on a hit you may take from them a small item. The GM will tell you what you get.
Human – When you attack a staggered or confused opponent, deal +1d6 damage.
Slippery Egress – When you attempt to slink away, Roll+CHA. ✴10+ you’re gone. ✴7-9, you can stay or go, but if you go it costs you: leave something behind, or take something with you, the GM will tell you what. On a miss, you’re caught vulnerable, half in and half out.
Feint – When you attempt to sucker an intelligent foe in combat, Roll+CHA. ✴10+ pick 2. ✴7-9 pick 1 but you take the sucker’s damage.
– The mark slips and staggers
– You press the mark into an ally’s waiting attack
– An ally takes +1 forward against the mark
Bluff – When you attempt to convince a GM’s character of something plausible, Roll+CHA. ✴10+, they believe you. Their belief counts as leverage. ✴7-9, they believe you though your lie is flimsy. Their belief counts as leverage for the time being. Choose 1:
Once they have time to think about it, they’ll see holes in your story.
If someone else hears the story, they’ll start asking question.
When you gain a level from 2–5, choose from these moves.
Alter Ego – With a week of intense introspection and practice, you can craft a personal alter ego that has its own look, clothing, and mannerisms. With a few seconds of concentration you can change to or from an alter ego. You may only have one crafted alter ego at a time. When you first take this move, describe the alter ego you just finished crafting.
Nondetection – Attempts to magically divine your location, thoughts, or alignment return no information.
Cold Read – When you briefly converse with someone, you may ask the character’s player one of the following questions:
– What here has caught your attention?
– Who here do you most want to interact with?
– Who here do you most want to avoid?
– What one word best describes a secret you are carrying?
Slippery Mind – When you are the target of an enchantment of the mind, you may choose to immediately dispel it without effect.
Noble Mien When you use an Alter Ego that has authority over your mark, take +1 ongoing to Bluff them.
Savage Cunning You can use Bluff and Feint on any creature with animal intellect or higher.
Partner in Crime When someone Aids your Bluff by acting like the shill or straight man, take +2 instead of +1.
Play Possum When you are successfully attacked, you can Feint to convince your attacker they have felled you. If you do, they turn their back on and ignore you. Of course no one goes for this more than once.

Confounding Feint – Add the following to your Feint options.
– The mark stands there and drools helplessly for a few seconds
When you gain a level from 6–10, choose from these moves or the level 2–5 moves.
Cheat Death – Your skills as a liar are legendary, and even Death itself can be fooled. When you would roll for your Last Breath, roll Bluff instead. Your days are numbered, because Death will figure you out sooner or later, but you may just manage to stay alive long enough to figure something else out.
Inceptive Bluff – when you bluff on a 12+ they strongly believe and will convince others of this belief.
