Vale Tudo! WC AT+4 [72] 16 12)

1) Includes +1 to Status from Rank.
2) Includes +1 to Status from Wealth.
3) Always consider the wider consequences of your decisions, on yourself, those around you, and on the systems of society and the natural world. A leader should be stern but fair, lead by example, and look out for their fellows; a follower should look out for their fellows and take care of their responsibilities. Every Olympian should be willing to struggle and sacrifice for the integrity of their cause and their people; resist and oppose monstrous causes; lead and follow with consideration; avoid destructive incentives and destabilizing worthwhile equilibria; treat a constructive opponent with respect (a destructive opponent deserves removal); and take pride in the cause's symbols.
4) Use in place of Professional Skill (Student), Public Speaking, Research, Teaching, and Writing. May also be used in place of Autohypnosis, Computer Operation, Dreaming, Linguistics, Observation, or Savoir-Faire when assisting with studying, and Artist, Brainwashing, Gesture, Poetry, or Propaganda when assisting with teaching.
Wildcard Benefits: Ignore penalties for Cultural Familiarity and for Geographical and Temporal Scope when studying.
Full Bonus: The full bonus can negate default penalties for any skill with an attribute default, to a minimum penalty of -1 for Easy skills, -2 for Average, -3 for Hard, or -4 for Very Hard; that is, this cannot be as good as actually spending a character point to learn the skill.
Half Bonus: Gain the benefits of Accelerated Learning at a level equal to your half bonus.
5) Use in place of Computer Operation, Cooking, First Aid, and Housekeeping; Hiking, Climbing, and Stealth; Observation, Search, and Scrounging. Make an IQ-based roll against Area Knowledge, Current Affairs, Savoir-Faire, or Streetwise, or a DX-based roll against Driving or Piloting for common personal transports, for any region and culture the character has spent at least (6 - full bonus) months in (minimum one week). Finally, this covers any specialisation of a “background” or “hobby” skill (including Artist, Dancing, Hobby Skill, Musical Instrument, Professional Skill, and Singing) that the character has at least (6 - full bonus) months (minimum one) of familiarity with.
Wildcard Benefits: This is an especially broad skill that can cover many different actions, however mundane; if it is a familiar task that “anyone should be able to do,” the GM should be generous in allowing it.
6) You know all there is to know about uncovering the ancient past, and surviving while doing so. This skill completely replaces the following skills: Anthropology, Archaeology, Cartography, Geography, Heraldry, History, Linguistics, Naturalist, Navigation, Paleontology, and Sociology. It can stand in for Occultism, Philosophy, and Theology when answering questions about what a particular civilization believes. When communicating with primitive cultures, it also functions as Gesture and can be used for the following Influence skills: Diplomacy, Fast-Talk, Intimidation (with a WL-based roll), Savoir-Faire, and Sex Appeal (with a HT-based roll). It can stand in for either Literature or Research for any roll related to ancient peoples, civilizations, etc. Finally, make a PE-based roll to use any of the following skills in a wilderness or unexplored area: Camouflage, Meteorology, Observation, Survival, Tracking, and Traps.
Wildcard Benefits: Ignore penalties due to lack of Cultural Familiarity of primitive peoples or familiarities or tech level penalties for using equipment covered by this skill.
Full Bonus: Add the full bonus to resist natural hardships; when determining the critical failure range for disarming traps, solving puzzles, etc. – though 18 is always a critical failure – or to distance and area class (both p. B176) on any skill to which these apply.
Half Bonus: Add the half bonus to active defense rolls to avoid ancient booby-traps, or against weapons with a TL less than half the campaign TL (round up).
7) This skill stands in for Administration, Diplomacy, Finance, Intelligence Analysis, Leadership, Politics, Propaganda, Public Speaking, Savoir-Faire, Strategy, Tactics, and most aspects of Teaching. It counts as Body Language and Gesture to “read” and signal those you lead; Detect Lies if your underlings try to deceive you; First Aid to bandage them; and Psychology to understand them. Finally, you can use this as a complementary or directive skill when coordinating allies.
Wildcard Benefits: Ignore Cultural Familiarity penalties for anyone under your leadership or who is considered your ally. Furthermore, if there is a limit on the number of levels of Foresight for the campaign, you add 1/3 your full bonus (round to the nearest whole number) to this limit.
Full Bonus: Add the full bonus for others to hear and understand you. When leading a group, add your full bonus to your followers' Fright Checks, rolls to resist supernatural mind control or persuasion, self-control rolls to disadvantages that inhibit working well as a group or taking orders, morale checks, etc. Add your full bonus to spot impostors for anyone you've led before. Add your full bonus to reaction or Influence rolls against anyone you've led or who watches you work.
Half Bonus: Add the half bonus - 1 when you use this skill as a complementary or directive skill. Add the half bonus for assistance rolls.
8) The distillation of practical pistol combat by police and military forces worldwide. Practitioners exclusively use a natural two-handed “isosceles” stance at any range, with at least a wobbly “flash sight” aim. Shots are usually fired at the center of mass or at the “thoracic triangle” for reliable targeting and rapid wounding. Use in place of Guns (Pistol) or Fast-Draw (Ammo or Pistol). Make an IQ-based roll for Armoury (Small Arms), Connoisseur (Guns), Holdout, or Tactics regarding pistols. Use it at full skill for Fast-Firing, Immediate Action, Precision Aiming, or Quick-Shot, or at +3 to skill for Close-Quarters Battle or Retain Weapon, and halve all penalties for targeted attacks to the skull, face, and any sub-location of the torso (e.g., vitals or pelvis). Also include all the effects of the Cool Under Fire, Cross-Trained, and Grip Mastery perks.
9) You are an intuitive master of all psionic arts you encounter. This skill replaces all psionic power skills. I'll add more to this when we're not in the middle of gaming. :P
10) You are a true expert of the mind — both your own and others. This skill replaces Autohypnosis, Body Language, Brainwashing, Criminology, Detect Lies, Dreaming, Fortune-Telling, Hypnotism, Interrogation, Meditation, Mind Block, Propaganda, Psychology, and Sociology when dealing with yourself or a familiar society. Use it for Diagnosis, Observation, or Research when studying people and their behaviour, or for any Influence skill when attempting to analyse and/or treat someone.
Wildcard Benefits: This skill includes the benefits of Empathy — but not the skill bonuses — and you do not require that trait. Ignore any penalties you might have for Low Empathy or Callous when diagnosing a subject; ignore physiology modifiers.
Full Bonus: Add your full bonus to all rolls to resist madness or mental manipulation; to the reactions of people you've treated; to patients' rolls to combat mental illness. Apply your full bonus as a penalty to negate any bonus granted to unwilling or unaware subjects, or as a bonus to negate any penalty from the same.
Half Bonus: Subtract the half bonus from the total character point cost for “Buying Off” Disadvantages for a patient who has been in your care for 6 - full bonus months, minimum of one month. Add or subtract (your choice) 1 + half bonus to the next self-control roll for one specific disadvantage by making a skill roll and spending one minute interacting with someone in your care (or that you otherwise know well).
11) This skill only helps when working with allies. It counts as Body Language and Gesture to “read” and signal allies; First Aid to bandage them; and Climbing, Hiking, Stealth, or any other mundane skill in a scenario where the whole team must roll and you lack another applicable wildcard. In situations where you need to work with a group, you always count as if you “know the skill.” For complementary skills, an IQ-based roll enables you to “do something useful” and then make a complementary skill roll to provide a modifier to someone else's master skill. You can transfer the benefits of an Aim, Deceptive Attack, Evaluate, or Feint to any teammate you can both see or hear and who can both see or hear you. If you are within reach, or possess a ranged weapon that can reach the target, you can sacrifice a parry or block to defend a teammate. You could, for example, take an All-Out Defense (Double), while an ally takes an All-Out Attack (Double) and defend your ally even though he cannot normally get an active defense roll against attacks.
Wildcard Benefits: Ignore the -2 to attack enemies in close combat with teammates and ignore the penalties of missing. This works for any team as long as you've practiced with them for 6 - full bonus months; treat a 0 or less as one week instead. Those using Coordinated Attacks suffer only -1 per fighter after the first.
Full Bonus: Add the full bonus to rolls to resist Brainwashing, Interrogation, and supernatural mind control in any situation where failure would lead to betrayal of your comrades. Multiply the bonus by 5% (round up) when combining Basic Lift. Add the full bonus to your ST when combining ST for a ST roll or to cause damage. When using complementary skill rolls to assist someone, add your full bonus (if better than any other bonus you can provide). Add the full bonus to your rolls to spot impostors or supernaturally controlled members of your team.
Half Bonus: Add the half bonus to your Basic Speed for determining your order in the initiative when performing team-based actions (which always use the Basic Speed of the slowest team member).
12) The product of intensive mixed martial arts research by Excalibur, Vale Tudo (lit. “anything goes”) is a swift and brutal fighting style; competitive practitioners fight to win, as quickly as possible, and not to demonstrate artistry and grace. Practitioners use their entire body as a weapon and fight equally well from nearly any posture. As a wildcard skill, Vale Tudo! covers the skills Karate, Judo, and Wrestling. Use it at full skill for the Back Kick, Choke, Choke Hold, Counterattack, Elbow or Knee Strike, Exotic Hand Strike, Hammer Fist, Head Butt, Kicking, Scissor Hold, Stamp Kick, and Uppercut techniques, as well as any non-standard Parries such as Escaping Parry and Grabbing Parry. It also eliminates all attack and defense penalties for Ground Fighting or Low Fighting and any grappling with the legs. Finally, it can be used for Breakfall, Disarming, Evade, Feint, and Joint Lock at +3. Some practitioners adapt knife and stick attacks to the style; treat these as Weapon Adaptation (Main-Gauche or Smallsword).
