Default Supernatural Quirks and Perks

Basically small bits of magic that suit even a largely non-magical setting.

Example: Minus -1 to all rolls on Egyptian Days. Basically a limited form of Bad Luck that comes up only rarely.

Another example might be a character who has Charisma plus three, but only to people who've eaten some Tansy in the last 72 hours. The comedy aspects of this should be obvious.

Basically a points worth of good or bad magic.

Note: I added references to make Egyptian Days clearer.

Hey I meant for people to add in their own supernatural Quirks and Perks.

Please give it a try.

Your eyes turn all black or all red if you use Intimidation or lose your temper. Bonus to Intimidation against normals at the price of exposing some of your nature.

Cats really, really love you. This doesn't mean they'll do what you tell them. They just want you to pet them and let them lie on you.

You have a health bar because you're a video game character brought to life

For a cat theme:

If you're in danger unknowingly, and if a cat's within 1000 feet of you, it will make a single yowl alerting you.... unless it's hunting, then of course it's not going to give its position away. ;)

Cats hate you no matter what you do. They won't do anything overtly supernatural. But they will hiss, hide, etc.

Cats will stop whatever they're doing and stare at you for as long as you're nearby. (You think that's normal, but try it and see how they get bored after just a couple of minutes at most.)

Try this set of Quirks, your reflection is wrong. How it is wrong can very, but it can mark you out at bad times.

Having a reflection that doesn't doesn't match you is an example of a Supernatural Feature
