Solace

An Urban Fantasy Horror LARP

Integrity is a measure of a character’s stability and ability to handle the ups and downs that life throws at them—supernatural or not. It’s measured on a scale from 1-10, where 1 is barely functional and emotionally scarred, and 10 is the picture of emotional health. Starting characters begin with Integrity 7—not in tip-top shape, but holding it together.

When characters experience psychological stress or trauma, it may constitute a breaking point. Breaking points don’t need to stem from one’s own actions—they may involve just bearing witness to a terrible event or being the victim of violence.

At a breaking point, players make a test with a pool of Resolve + Composure, with any additional modifiers from their current integrity (see chart below) or their list of situational modifiers, though modifiers should not exceed +5/-5.

If the character nets at least one success, they find within themselves the ability to cope. On 5+ successes, the character is unusually able to find a way to forge meaning from the situation, and additionally gains 1 Willpower and checks their development XP box for the game. On a failure, the character’s Integrity decreases by 1.

Integrity may be regained between games with the expenditure of one (1) experience point.
