Description: Ming-Wen Chu used to be a Catholic nun but she's been defrocked. She was accused of “fraternizing” with a Jesuit priest. The accusations were baseless, the extent of her interaction with the priest in question was boxing lessons for self-defense given her tendency to bring charity to the rough parts of town, but her foreigner status worked against her and despite her innocence she still found herself kicked out of the order. Since then, she's felt sort of purposeless. She's going through a crisis of faith. While she still believes in God, she's uncertain of her own place in the universe. She's been doing a good job of hiding her distress from other people, and moving to a new town has helped, but there is just this need to fill like she has a reason again. She met Sarah Orne while the girl was asking around at the diner Ming-Wen was working about her cousin, Richard. Recognizing the name and description as one of her regulars, Ming-Wen offered to help the search. It took some convincing, but after mentioning her background in giving charitable medical care, Dr. Anton agreed to take her on as an assistant.


First Aid – If a character has become Hurt you can recover their Health up to one-third of their maximum. 1 First Aid Point heals 2 Health. If you are healing yourself, it is 1 Health per point of First Aid spent. If a character has become If someone is Seriously Wounded (-6 to -11 Health) then they need a hospital to regain Health but you can stabilize them with a Difficulty 3 First Aid Test

Improved Psychoanalysis – You can perform Psychological Triage by making a Difficulty 3 test. After success you can recover another person's Stability with a cost of 1 Psychoanalysis point for each 2 points of Stability recovered.

Points spent on succeeding in the roll to start wouldn't count toward recovering Stability.

You cannot perform Psychological Triage on yourself.

You can also spend 2 points of Psychoanalysis to calm a person acting irrationally.

You must past a Difficulty 3 Test to be successful. Points spend to perform the action do not count toward the success.

Hypnosis – You can put a willing person into a trance with a Difficulty 3. With a succesful test AND a1 or 2 pt Reassurance spend you can do this with people who aren't guarding for it as long as you're slow and cautious and can talk to them. Once this is done you can perform the following:
  • Create a simple trance during which the patient is calm and placid.
  • Establish rapport, reducing your Psychoanalysis difficulties with this person to 2 during the trance.
  • Recover memories
  • Place a post-hypnotic suggestion.
  • Ease pain so that penalties for the Hurt status are ignored.
  • Implant False Memories
Preparedness – You are an expert at predicting the things you might need. If you come across an obstacle that a particular object might allow you to move past, you can perform a Test to see if you have it. This depends on the narrative credibility of the item being requested being on hand.

Campaigns I'd Love to Play or Run

Some of these I've sort of run, or started to run. Or started to play, but would like a better shot at them.  Inspired by Flying Frog ...
