Inexperienced, naive, gullible, or easily frightened, these are the traits of the Youth archetype. Despite the implication of its name, the Youth can be of any age and background, it is simply enough that they be innocent of the nature of the world around them. childishness does not mean stupidity, though, and some times characters of this archetype are very knowledgeable, though they are at a loss as to how or why that might be important to others. Youths often seek to please the more experienced characters around them and often seek out teachers to help them correct their deficiencies in understanding. Any character with the Youth archetype will eventually evolve into another character persona given enough time and experience “out in the world,” so the characterization of this archetype is transitory at best.
Callow Youth: The inexperience of younger characters tends to take on a life of its own when embodied by the Callow Youth. These characters tend to fall into situations that might otherwise be avoided by older, more experienced characters. While this can prove irritating for other characters, often times the Callow Youth’s blunders open up new avenues of information and provide unlooked-for insight into a problem. Most characters who start with this archetype eventually evolve into another archetype. One of the most easily recognized Callow Youths is the character of Taran from the novels by Lloyd Alexander (personally, I would use the young Harry Potter or young Bilbo Baggins as models for this archetype — but only in their youngest incarnations. As the Youth archetype each grows and evolves into its own distinct personality given enough experience and time).
Transition with age / experience to Know-it-alls and Savants form the bulk of the scholarly inclined personality. Information is power and those who know the most can be among the richest and most diverse characters in any game. There is a tipping point though when a character goes beyond simply seeking new knowledge and actively obsesses over the acquisition of such. The devotion to even the most obscure facets of knowledge sets the Scholar apart from the character who just happens to be knowledgeable. There is a certain amount of perspicacity that goes along with this archetype as well as a specialization that most folks consider strange. When you ask a Scholar about a subject he or she knows well figure you are going to be listening to the response for a while.
Explorer: To go where none have gone before is the creed of the Explorer personality. Naturally curious and eager to experience new and different things the Explorer seeks experience for many different reasons. Chief among these reasons is the attainment of knowledge, however, many times the Explorer simply enjoys the thrill of discovery. Where there are empty places on a map there will be Explorers to seek them out and define them. But it is not only the physical knowledge that Explorers seek. Many Explorers are dedicated to thrill seeking and others simply explore the boundaries of their own personal abilities. Indiana Jones, Admiral Robert Peary, Dr. David Livingstone, and Sir Henry Morton Stanley are examples of great Explorers both fictional and real.

Living Myth: Roll 1x on the Fantasy table, 1x on the Extraterrestrial, and 1x on the Angelic or Infernal table
Fantasy Table: Wizard Robes
The Morphus is the classic wizard complete with tall, pointed hat and hooded robe. The robe is made of rich fabric and decorated in colorful magic symbols, runes, gemstones, and inscriptions along the edges of the sleeves, hem, collar, and hood. The hat is similarly decorated. There is no mistaking the occult nature of the garment.

Infernal Table: Mask of Darkness
The Morphus appears mostly human only the face appears to be covered with what appears to be a strange and exotic or elaborate mask. The body is covered in black, dark gray, or blood red patterns that wrap around the arms, leg, and torso. The mask is often leather and demonic or monstrous in appearance with horns, spikes, fins, or ribbing. It might also be made of feathers, strips of cloth, or porcelain. The mask conceals the character’s identity and cannot be removed. Inscribed on the character’s chest or back as well as the shoulders or forearms is a strange symbol which the character believes “marks” her as an agent of destruction or a Death-bringer to the Nightlords.

Sorcerous Proficiency: Mystical Lineage (counts as a secondary skill and requires (1) limitation / weakness) -
Traditions around the world where magical abilities are inherited whether a family gift or a curse. Entire families may share some mystical inheritance. Perhaps the character belongs to one of these families. The character benefits from generations of research, personal journals, theories, observations, and books (and possibly the advice, aid, or even meddling of other family members who may provide information, suggestions, assistance and in emergencies, aid. They have their own lives to lead however and are not the character’s servants. Moreover, they will expect the character to help them if they are in trouble.) Bonuses: + 10% to Research skill, + 10% in figuring out existing magic or creating new or variant magic spells.
Sorcerous Limitations / Weakness:
Wild Magic – The character’s spells and magics work…but not always as expected. There is usually (not always but 8 times out of 10) something inexplicable, unpredictable, or inconvenient about the character’s spells. The duration might elapse before it should or there’s some weird backlash. Perhaps a Negate Poison spell makes the victim vomit up the poison rather than simply cancelling its effects inside the body. Perhaps a target affected by a Fear spell acts unexpectedly (shrieking prophecies in a foreign tongue as he flees). A Fireball spell might send a backlash of ash or sparks that inflicts minor damage to the spell caster. A Heal Wounds spell might leave weird purple scars. Call Night Lord might call the wrong Lord or allow him to bring friends with him.
What is going on? Maybe the character hasn’t quite mastered the mental disciplines required to perfectly cast spells or his training is irreparably flawed. Or perhaps some outside force (in the Nightlands?) is deliberately sabotaging his magics. In the latter case let the G.M. decide exactly who is doing this and why.

Lightning Rider – NB becomes a being of pure electrical energy. Unless a great deal of P.P.E. is spent it does not inflict damage. While in electrical form the NB can travel through conductive materials at incredible speeds. Spd 8 unless in a conductive material. A character with computer operations can understand the information super-highway and hitch rides on modem calls. Usable by Morphus only. Costs 15 P.P.E. to acquire permanently, 10 P.P.E. to activate per minute, 1d6 S.D.C. per 5 P.P.E. per attack, 8 points of damage will fry most electronics.
Reshape Facade (Acquired @ lvl 3 for 12 P.P.E.) – Temporarily alter the shape of the Facade changing features, hair color, and even size. The more extensive the change the more P.P.E. it will cost. Imitating a particular person is possible but very difficult to get right (20% + I.Q. bonus + 3% / lvl). Usable by Facade only. Not available until 3rd level. Cost: 12 P.P.E. to acquire permanently, 6 P.P.E. to activate, + 4 P.P.E. per additional hour the disguise is active.
See Truth (Acquired @ lvl 3 for 3 P.P.E.) – Each time the power is activated the NB will be able to see the true nature of one person or object. For other NB, see target’s true Facade and Morphus forms. The alignment of the target can also be seen (applicable to humans and NB – in the latter case this counts as a separate use of the talent). Furthermore, it reveals strong magical emanations, undead, vampires, serious illness, strong emotions (hatred when the person is smiling or being nice, etc.), all considered aspects of the soul or personality of the target. Target saves vs Magic to resist revealing the truth. The NB can increase the difficulty of the save by expending more P.P.E. – every + 4 P.P.E. increases the number needed to save by + 1. Maximum of 18 to save. Limitations: Range – 300ft / line of sight. Cost: 3 P.P.E. to acquire permanently, 2 P.P.E. to activate, 4 P.P.E. to increase save by + 1.
Severance (Acquired @ lvl 5 for 15 P.P.E.) – The Nightbane is able to temporarily shut down his supernatural aura making himself undetectable to other Nightbane, psychics, mages, and supernatural creatures who can sense and track the supernatural aura of Nightbane and other paranormal beings. It can prevent detection by Hounds, Hunters, Great Hounds, and Soul Trackers as well as defeat the “Sense Nightbane” ability inherent in other Nightbane. Furthermore it makes the character’s aura appear to be that of an ordinary human.
However using the Severance talent comes at a cost. As long as the Severance is in place and the supernatural aura is suppressed the Nightbane cannot use any of his other talents nor cast any magic. Furthermore, the Nightbane feels cut-off from the metaphysical world and the sensation of alienation can be unsettling particularly for Mystics who feel most attuned to the supernatural world. Limitations: Not available until 4th level. Range: Self only. Duration: 1min / lvl. Costs 15 P.P.E. to acquire permanently, 10 P.P.E. to activate
Doorway (Acquired @ lvl 5 for 15 P.P.E.) – Creates a door of dark energy that leads to a specific location desired by the creator of it. Takes 1 melee round of concentration. Range: a location up to 1 mile away per (2) P.P.E. spent. The Nightbane must have been to the destination at least once in his life or have line of sight. Limitations: Usable by Morphus only. Not available until 5th level. Costs 15 P.P.E. to permanently acquire and a minimum of 2 P.P.E. to activate. This power can also open a doorway to the Nightlands or back but this ability costs (40) P.P.E. + 5 P.P.E. per mile.

See Aura (2 P.P.E.) – 100ft, 1 melee, no save, mind block will block presence of psionic abilities, P.P.E., and possession, all things organic and inorganic have an aura, estimate general level of XP (low 1-3, medium 4-7, high 8 and up), presence of magic, presence of psychic abilities, high or low base P.P.E., presence of a possessing entity, presence of a serious illness, presence of unusual aberration which will indicate mutation, superpowers, alien, or supernatural, doesn’t reveal alignment
Sense Magic (4 P.P.E.) learned @ level 2 – 120ft diameter, 2 mins / lvl, no save, like a Geiger Counter the individual can sense or feel the presence of magic of any kind, lets the caster know whether a person or object in range is enchanted, under a magic spell, or in the process of invoking magic. Practitioners of magic and most supernatural beings do not actually register as magic except when they are actively casting a spell or using magic. Psychic powers and manipulation cannot be detected with this spell.
Blinding Flash (1 P.P.E.) researched @ level 2 – 10ft radius up to 60ft away, instant, std save, sudden burst of intense white light blinding everyone in its radius, blind lasts 1d4 melee rounds, -5s, -10p,d, 50% chance to fall every 10ft traveled, does NOT affect bionic or cybernetic eyes
Cloud of Smoke (2 P.P.E.) researched @ level 2 – up to 90ft away, lasts 4 melee rounds / lvl, no save, MAX size 30′×30′×30′, victims caught in the cloud will be unable to see anything beyond it and their vision is impaired, they can see no more than 3ft in front of them and those images are only blurry shapes unless under 1ft away, victims are -5s,p,d while inside the cloud

A thermal-imager is likely to reveal the character especially in a cold environment, however if the air temperature or even a machine he is hiding against is around the same temperature as his body temperature (within 5 degrees) the character is concealed even from it.
