Extended Actions

Extended Actions (WOD pg 128-129)

Extended actions are actions that can’t be accomplished in a single roll. Generally these are items such as crafting, researching, or many occult rituals and require between 5-25 successes. The downside is that each roll requires a certain amount of time.

Time Scale:
  • 1 Round
  • 1 Minute
  • 10 minutes
  • 30 minutes
  • 1 hour
  • 6 hours
  • 12 hours
  • 1 Day
  • 1 Week
  • 1 Month
  • 1 Year

The issues arises in in that you are limited to a number of rolls equal Attribute + Skill. If you have five dice, and you try five times, that’s it.

Unless, of course, you take a 1 die penalty, and boost the time requirement up a level (Say from 10 minutes to 30 minutes). You are now limited to Attribute + Skill (-1) at the new duration.

Did you not succeed in that time frame? Take a 2 die penalty, and another time extension (Say from 30 minutes to 60 minutes).

You can keep going until your Attribute+Skill is 0 at which point it is just beyond you. But generally at that point you’ve devoted months and years to it. And still failed. Sucks to be you.
