A Talent is a particular knack or skill that a character has harnessed over the course of their adventuring career, often conferring a title or epithet such as ‘the strong’ or ‘quickest gun in the wild’. Some backgrounds confer Talents, but all characters receive them each time they level up. There are a series of ‘basic Talents’ available to all characters at all times. However, these basic Talents form just the beginnings of trees of related Talents, most of which need to be unlocked through the favor or tutelage of some organization. Organizations give out rites which are the means by which characters access these Talents. Rites are usually given out for services rendered to an organization or strong support for that organization’s goals.
