Fate Points

Fate points are a narrative device to enable the players to have an input in the game. With Fate Points, you, the player, can alter the game world in some way so as to benefit your character. Fate points are intended to offer you the chance to add to the story of your character, adapting the events around them, or the circumstances that befall your character so as to make a better game and feel for the World of Charun.


Language ChoicesX

Languages are important in many ways. They are a way of communication between player characters that adds to the atmosphere of the world, as well as a necessity at times to understand written lore, parlay with NPCs or understand what is being said by your captors.


ReputationX

Reputation can get you far in Charun. It has saved many adventurers more than once.


Corruption and InsanityX

One's mental health can take damage as well as one's physical health. Unnatural encounters and continuous dealings with ambiguous powers can lead to that, making sorcerers especially vulnerable.


High Level Features

Upon reaching higher levels a character can attract a number of followers, build a stronghold of his own and have a heraldry.


FollowersX

Along with their levels, characters also gain reputation. Those who show promise, great power, a path towards success, or perhaps just a friendly demeanor, may find that NPCs want to follow them. These NPCs may wish for apprenticeships, employment, or a leader they can look up to.


StrongholdsX

Upon reaching sufficient level your character may purchase/build a stronghold. It may be a mansion, a tower, a castle, a temple or a dungeon – the possibilities are almost limitless, as long as your character has the means of carrying through with the project.


Heraldic ShieldsX

Your character may have his own heraldic shield upon reaching sufficient level, regardless of his or her class. This shield can be worn by the character or/and by the characters followers or other hirelings.
