Influence

Taken from Mage: the Ascension (revised)


You can roll your character’s Influence score in conjunction with Social Traits in order to have your character gain special favors. When combined with Mental Traits, it could represent your character’s search for information via her connections in the area of her influence. This Background can also help your character acquire new acolytes. By rolling Charisma + Influence, you determine her success at swaying others to follow her. Unlike the Allies Background, Influence just enables your character to get things done; it doesn’t supply you with “mooks.” Similarly, you might hear a few choice tidbits from a local scene with Influence, but for the full range of dirt in the city, you need Contacts.

x Nobody pays much attention to you.
• Your peers recognize you.
•• You have many local associates, and you know who to call.
••• You’re respected regionally; people seek your opinion.
•••• Your word is gold on a national level.
••••• You are vastly influential on a global scale.
