# Name Details
●○○○○ Area of Expertise Skill: Occult, Speciality: Rituals
Choose 1 skill specialty. It now gives a +2 bonus, instead of +1. Pre: Res 2
●●○○○ Contacts (Cultists, Clergy) From Professional training
Contacts provide your character with information. Each dot in this Merit represents a sphere or organization with which the character can garner information. F.ex: A character with Contacts ••• might have Bloggers, Drug Dealers, & Financial Speculators for connections.
Contacts don't provide services, only information. This may be face-to-face, email, by telephone, or even by séance in some strange instances.
Garnering info via Contacts requires a (Manipulation +Social Skill) roll depending on the methodthe character uses. This Merit can either be used generally, in which case only the field is necessary, or it can be personalized by identifying an individual within the field whom the character can call.
If using the latter method, the ST should give a bonus or penalty, dependent on how relevant the information is to that particular Contact, whether accessing the information is dangerous, and if the character has maintained good relations or done favors for the Contact. These modifiers should range from –3 to +3 in most cases. If successful, the Contact provides the information.
One use of a Contact is to dig dirt on another character. A Contact can find another character’s Social Merits and any relevant Flaws (''Embarrassing Secret''is a prime example).
A character can have more than five Contacts, but the Merit’s rating is limited to five, for the purposes of Allies blocking.

●●○○○ Safe Place (apartment) Details:
Appartment on campus provided by university
Character has somewhere to can go where they can feel secure. While they may have enemies that could attack them there, the character is prepared & has the upper hand.
The dot-rating reflects the security of the place:
1 dot: Might be equipped with basic security systems or a booby trap at the windows and door.
5 dots: Could have a security crew, infrared scanners at every entrance, or trained dogs.
● Each place could be an apartment, a mansion or a hidey-hole.
● The actual location, the luxury, and the size are represented by equipment (Housing, p241).
● Any efforts to breach the Safe Place suffer a penalty = Merit dots invested.
● Gives an Initiative bonus = (Merit dots) to characters with dots invested in the Safe Place.
● If character desires, the Safe Place can include traps that cause intruders L dmg to max = Merit lvl (player's choice as to how much damage a given trap inflicts). This requires that the character has at least 1 dot in Crafts. The traps may be avoided with a roll of (Dex + Larceny – Safe Place dots).
Special: Unlike most Merits, multiple characters can contribute dots to a single Safe Place, combining their points into something greater.
●○○○○ Status - Operations Character has standing, membership, authority, control over, or respect from a group or organization. This may reflect official standing or informal respect. No matter the source, your character enjoys certain privileges within that structure.
Each instance of this Merit reflects standing in a different group or organization. F.ex: May have Status (The Luck Gang) •••, Status (Drag Racing Circuit) ••, and Status (Police) •. Each affords its own unique benefits. As dot ratings increase, character rises in prominence in the relevant group.
Status only allows advantages within the confines of the group reflected in the Merit. F.ex: Status(Organized Crime) won’t help if your character wants an official concealed carry firearms permit.
Status provides a number of advantages:
First: Your character can apply her Status as a dice bonus to any Social roll with those over whichshe has authority or sway.
Second: She has access to group facilities, resources, and funding. Dependent on the group, this could be limited by red tape and requisitioning processes. It’s also dependent on the resources the particular group has available.
Third: She has pull. If your character knows another character’s Mentor, Resources, Retainer, Contacts, or Allies, she can block their usage. Once per chapter, she can stop a single Merit from being used if it’s of a lower dot rating than her Status and if it makes sense for her organization to obstruct that type of person’s behavior.
F.ex: With (Organized Crime) status, if a character knows that the chief of police has Contacts (Criminal Informant), you may opt to block usage by threatening the informant into silence.
Drawback: Status requires upkeep and often regular duties. If these duties are not upheld, Status may be lost. The dots will not be accessible until the character re-establishes her standing. In our Organized Crime example, your character may be expected to pay protection money, offer tribute to a higher authority, or undertake felonious activities.
While Status can apply in a nigh infinite number of organizations, here is a list of some common Status Merits and suggested dot ratings to give a jumping off point. These examples are still abstractions; a character may be a dot level lower or higher and still hold the suggested positions.
