Satyr

satyr are hedonists, associated with Dionysus and resurgences of the Dionysian Mysteries throughout history. They are often accompanied by maenads, mortal women driven near to madness by Dionysus' revelations, who serve as his priestesses. satyr and maenads revel in his name, and have been known to be driven to heights of madness such that they tear people apart with their bare hands and even eat them. satyr are naturally charismatic and talkative goat-people with a knack for attracting other potential hedonists. Many artistic works featuring satyr actually had the real thing pose for them, and they've appeared in a number of classic films. (And some decidedly bad ones.) While they prefer playing to working, satyr are universally excellent physical specimens and more than capable of fighting back when the cops inevitably show up to break up the party. Their headbutts are more than capable of hospitalizing a human. Still, they're relatively harmless unless angered. Their stat block can, with modifications, be used for less friendly celebrant beings and lures, such as sirens.

 

satyr are satyr. Still, they're more than hedonists - they are a force of nature on the edge of civilization, making others shed their inhibitions. They tear down order and bring change. They follow their passions, good or ill, and take others with them. They are not fickle - they don't change course until they're satisfied.

Hair of the Goat

You are immune to all forms of poison and venom. If you roll crafts+medicine, you can mix whatever available liquids you have to make one dose of an antidote to any

poison you know of.

Cup of Wisdom

 When you try to solve a complex problem, you may take the Drunk condition for the scene (causing Complication on all actions, especially those involving fine motor skills) to get +1 on rolls to solve it.

Give Me Another

You can make a roll to automatically convince someone to repeat their current willing activity when they're done. If this would put them at risk of harm, the Satyr rolls (Manipulation + Subterfuge) vs (Wits + Empathy)

Party Animal

While you pursue your passions, you need not eat, drink or sleep for several days, after which you must fall into undisturbable slumber for an equal period.

Revels: When you take part in a performance, celebration or friendly gathering, the Difficulty of social actions for everyone involved is reduced by 1 for as long as you are present and active.

Blind Luck

You may define up to three points of Good luck or Bad Luck (or a combination of each) that are readily apparent to your perceptions (which may be enhanced by other abilities) but not obvious to other observers. They must conform to the Features of the area, however — it makes sense for a shotgun to be behind the bar, but not a rocket launcher. The hardwood floors of a burning building could be expected to be weak, but the flames can’t be cold. Only three total can be applied to an area at a time, regardless of how many Satrys possess this ability. This is only once per scene.

Fruit of Passion:

Choose a form of art that is your driving passion. For the rest of the session, you get extra success on all rolls involving making that form of art. After you produce a work you are satisfied with, you may switch to another art form.

Centaur

Centaurs once roamed the Eurasian steppe in huge herds, but they rarely handled encounters with the local Greeks all that well. Most notably, an ancient myth speaks of a wedding that the centaurs got invited to, got drunk at and started a huge battle with the local tribes at. This is known as the Centauromachy, and many of the Greek tribes cursed the centaurs for inspiring Scythian mounted combat and archery. 

 

Centaurs cannot bear confinement, and because centaurs refuse all horseshoes, they hate paved roads, which pain their hooves. Still, the more personable and calm centaurs often trade with more settled peoples, especially for alcohol, which they love. Modern states have largely given up trying to civilize the centaurs in the past century, and they still live in fairly large numbers on the steppe, with smaller colonies in northern Greece and particularly Thessaly.

 

 There are also American centaurs, transported there in the 19th century in significant numbers as part of an experiment that was later given up on. Now, they live as a notable minority in the Great Plains, despite the frustrations of local farmers. Modern centaurs are generally less violent than ancient ones, as they've learned that there's always more humans and that guns are dangerous, but there's still tons of social friction. 

 

Hephaestus is also noted as having become fascinated by the internal combustion engine and tinkered with making hybrids of mortal and vehicle. Most of his experiments died, and most of the ones that didn't couldn't breed. Centaurs have happily picked up the use of rifles, though they've always excelled at archery. 

Favored Weapon

At the beginning, choose one weapon to be your

favored weapon. When you use your favored weapon, add +3 to hit with that weapon.

Inspiring Act: When you demonstrate how to do something by doing it yourself, you can give an ally +1 Enhancement to do the same thing.

Rallying Presence

Strength in Numbers

When using Teamwork, you increase the maximum successes you can add from 3 to 5, and you can have multiple people rolling to assist you. However, to get the extra benefit, you must have at least as many helpers as successes rolled.
