Because of the great variety in superhuman types—
some have exotic powers, others are simply incredibly strong
or tough, and others still are nothing but ordinary people with
access to vast resources and unique technology—applying
the superhuman template works somewhat differently than
applying other supernatural templates.
All Superhumans automatically receive one dot in
Power Level; superhuman characters also receive a number
of starting experience determined by the Storyteller (usually
150*, but possibly more or less depending on the desired
power level of the chronicle). This starting experience may be
used to purchase traits in the normal manner during step 5 of
character creation ("apply supernatural template"); costs for
traits not listed in the core World of Darkness rulebook are
given below. A superhuman character may use this starting
experience to raise Attributes and Skills above 5 dots.

8. Spend or record any remaining experience. Record
starting Verve (equal to maximum Verve).

Costs listed with an * are used only if the game is being run
with the God Machine Chronicle rules update. Players not
using that system should simply ignore those costs.
Power Level: (8 x new rating) per dot, or 6 experiences* per
Alpha Class Superpower: (3 x new rating) per dot, or 3
experiences* per dot.
Beta Class Superpower: (5 x new rating) per dot, or 5
experiences* per dot.

Keep in mind that, strictly speaking, More Than
Human characters don't ever actually have to have been
human. Robots, aliens, animals and hidden anthropoids are
all viable characters in this game. In order to help make sure
they are viable, the Superhuman template also includes the
removal of any game-mechanic drawbacks that would make
the character 'less than human' for free, unless the player
wishes to take a Flaw** to represent the problem (the most
typical being "Inhuman").

Gamma Class Superpower: (7 x new rating) per dot, or 7
experiences* per dot.

That means that if you're making Fido, The K9
Supercop, you get human-level intelligence and impulsecontrol for free, and the Inhuman Flaw to cover the lack of
thumbs, voting rights, etc. Similarly, the robot gets full human

Power Level is basically just that—a superhuman’s
relative power level in comparison to the other superhumans
of the world. Sidekicks and mass-produced metahuman
soldiers would have Power Levels of 1-3, while demigods like
Superman or Goku would have Power Levels of 9-10. A
character’s Power Level determines the maximum number of
dots she can have in any given power, the maximum number
of Verve she can possess at any time, the number of Verve
recovered at the start of each scene or from acting in
accordance with a Virtue or Vice. However, as the character’s
Power Level increases, so does her ego, ; a superhuman
suffers a penalty to all degeneration rolls based on her Power

The Superhuman template also has a strange way
of occasionally altering or negating abilities that non-human
characters possess, apparently without reason. In other
words, any advantages that the character would have from
being non-human disappear unless they are represented by
an appropriate merit, superpower, or other game mechanic.

Power Superpower Verve / Degeneration
Level Max

Raising one's Power Level is, regardless of benefits,
a huge XP sink, and it's always better to incentivize such
things than to force them. For faster progression, the
Storyteller may choose to use one of the following optional
•Power Level costs a flat 8 XP per dot, as opposed to 8 times
the new rank.
•Characters gain additional XP per session equal to their
Power Level -1.

Verve represents a superhuman’s ability to use his
powers and to exert himself before tiring. Much like
Willpower, Verve represents a superhuman’s inner reserves
and his ability to persevere through adversity. Verve is
measured strictly in points, which the superhuman spends to
activate superpowers and to enhance his performance.
•Many superpowers require the expenditure of at least one
and sometimes more Verve to activate them. A character may
spend any number of Verve per turn to activate superpowers.
•In any situation where a character would spend or lose a
point of Willpower, he may elect to spend or lose a point of
Verve instead. This counts as the character’s sole Willpower
expenditure allowed for the turn; in other words, a character
could not elect to spend both a Willpower and a Verve for
twice the bonus. He may however spend an amount of Verve
on "Heroic Effort" and "Resistance" bonuses up to his Power
Level, increasing the bonus by 1 for each additional Verve
•A character receives a certain number of Verve at the
beginning of each scene, based on his Power Level as given
in the table above. A character may also recover Verve once
per scene for acting in accordance with his Virtue, and once
per scene for acting in accordance with his Vice; in each
case, the character recovers the same amount of Verve as
he does at the start of the scene.

A superpowered character may change their entire
outfit, reflexively, once an action. They also appear to be
entirely immune to wardrobe malfunctions, as well as
penalties related to inappropriate clothing for the given
situation. Clothing fits perfectly, and even characters with no
skill in Craft can make at least one rather durable and easily
repaired dramatic outfit. Armor, if worn, need not have more
than a passing familiarity with the physics governing actual
bodily protection, and need not cover much of the character's
frame at all. Female characters likewise have breasts
capable of ignoring gravity entirely.
Players may always waive these benefits if they deem it
appropriate to their character.

Superheroes and Supervillians are larger than life
characters, and when they play to their larger than life
personae, it can aid their actions and revitalize their reserves.
When a superhuman character enhances the description of a
rolled action or a dodge by adding a snappy one-liner or
similar quip, they add a die to that action, or add one to their
defense after doubling it for the dodge. If using the God
Machine Chronicle rules update, the character takes one
beat the first time they achieve a one-die Stylish Execution in
a scene.
Creative uses of powers, the environment or other
creative actions may allow the player to add two dice to a roll
or add two to a defense rating after doubling for a dodge. The
player can also take advantage of dramatic or comedic timing
to get this bonus. For example, listening in on a villain with a
bug, and choosing to swing through the window right after
hearing them say, "What could go wrong?". In addition, the
character can gain a point of willpower back with this level of
stylish execution.
Particularly impressive and creative descriptions can
be awarded three dice, or add three to a defense. This
garners the character one additional exp point. That exp
award can only be given once per session.
The Storyteller awards these bonuses.
Note that the bonus to defense is applied before any doubling
the defense rating in the case of a dodge.
The Storyteller may allow creative enough
descriptions to evoke small rules' benefits in place of dice
benefits, as appropriate to the situation. Examples of such
effects are combat complications, like knockdown and
knockback, or applying Defense in inapplicable instances*.

When the power works automatically the roll
is used to govern some other aspect of it's
use, such as damage or another measure or
it's effectiveness. The dice pool for a power is
usually an Attribute + Skill + the number of
dots in the power.
At the Storyteller’s discretion, the
Attribute or Skill involved may vary from the
one listed, but the combination given is the
default. This is not an excuse to match all
power pools to one die pool so as to min-max
the character, it is a way of matching the
rational for the power to the appropriate pool.

Area: The power’s area of effect, if any.


Duration: How long the power’s effect lasts.
Powers that have a one-time, immediate
effect (such as Force Bolt) have a Duration of
“Instant,” while powers that are constantly in
effect or which model some lasting change to
a character’s physiology have a Duration of
“Permanent.” Powers that fall between these
two extremes have a Duration listed in turns,
scenes, or some other appropriate time unit.
Some powers, whose Durations are listed as
"Concentration," remain in effect for as long
as a character concentrates on maintaining
them; while maintaining a power in this
manner, a character loses her Defense and
may not move faster than her Speed in a turn
(IE she may not run).

Class: Alpha

Effect: What the power actually does, in
game terms.

Effect: The character's blood is a highly corrosive substance,
and opponents who strike the character in melee risk being
burned by his blood. Whenever a target character comes in
contact with this character's blood (such as by dealing at
least one level of lethal or aggravated damage to the
character with a melee or point-blank ranged attack, or by
attempting to perform surgery on this character), this
character must make an immediate Stamina + Acid Blood
roll, with each success dealing one level of lethal damage to
the target. It is up to the Storyteller to determine whether or
not the target's Defense applies to a given Acid Blood attack.
The Stamina + Acid Blood roll should also be made for
objects that pierce or cut the character's flesh, and at the
Storyteller's discretion, other nearby objects or characters
may also be affected.

Effect: The character is able to fundamentally weaken living
things. Each success on the activation roll incurs a -1 penalty
to the target's physical actions and Speed for the duration.
These penalties can be removed by any effect that removes
bashing damage on a 1:1 basis. Multiple uses of Afflict do not
fully stack, but increase the previous affliction by 1 and reset
the duration. Non-living targets are unaffected.

Effect: The character is covered in layers of chitin or scales,
or his flesh is simply incredibly resistant to damage. When
damaged, each dot in Armor downgrades one level of
damage one category.
If the player wishes to be able to switch Armor on or off at the
start of the character's turn, this can be arranged, but he
always starts a scene with Armor off, making him vulnerable
to surprise attacks.
Bulletproof - The character's armor reduces damage levels
as opposed to downgrading them.
Alternate Rule: In more lethal chronicles, the Storyteller may
decide the Bulletproof extra adds the character's dots in
Armor to his armor stat, in addition to downgrading damage
but instead of reducing damage. If the player wants this
power to reduce damage, that's an extra named Impervious
and counts as two extras.
Bypass - This power does not apply to one category of
damage (physical, mental, energy or magic) which must be
relatively common.
NOTE: In the Bloody Knuckles & Domino Masks chronicle,
Armor is an Alpha class power, not Beta.


Only beings not native to the realm of existence they are
currently on may be subject to Banishment.
Creating a ritual area, with whatever trappings are
appropriate to the character's mystic style, aids in extended
rituals of this type. Assume each 1/2 hour of effort put in to
preparation of the ritual adds one die to the roll, up to the
character's Power Level.
At the STs discretion, some beings may require special
materials to be obtained or situations to arise before they can
be banished.

Duration: One scene
Effect: The character is able to temporarily increase one of
his Attributes, selected when the power is bought. When this
power is activated, the character gains one dot in the
selected Attribute for every dot he has in Boost. This is a
direct increase to the Attribute in question, and as such may
affect the character’s derived stats (such as Speed or
Willpower). A character is allowed to benefit from only one
use of Boost for a given Attribute at a time; for example, a
character with Boost (Strength) 3 would not be able to
activate it twice per scene to gain +6 Strength.
Extra Attribute - Power increases two Attributes
simultaneously instead of one.
Mega-Boost - The effect can be activated cumulatively,
stacking up to once per Power Level.

Cost: 1 Verve

Boost Other - The character may use this power on other
people they are currently touching. One activation covers one
person. Alternatively, the character can take this ability in
place of being able to boost themselves. This alternative
does not count as an Extra.

Dice Pool: Intelligence + (Occult) + Banishment


Action: Instant or Extended

Effect: The character attempts to send a being not of this
world back to where it belongs. To do so the character needs
to achieve successes equal to the Rank of the spirit or the
Summoning Rating of a corporeal being. This can be done as
an instant or extended action, as needed. Any character with
an occult rating equal to the target number required may
participate in the ritual if it is an extended action.
