  • Puppet in SWADE

    Puppet is an opposed roll of the character’s arcane skill versus the target’s Spirit. With success, the victim automatically obeys commands that don’t directly harm himself or those he cares about.
    With a raise, the target is completely controlled, but gets an automatic Spirit roll as a free action to avoid directly harming himself or those he cares about. If the puppet’s resistance succeeds, he doesn’t carry out that particular command but doesn’t otherwise resist his master. With a raise, he breaks the controller’s hold and the power ends.

    Commands are general, such as “attack that person” or “open that door.” The controller doesn’t get to dictate how many actions the victim uses in a turn, whether or not he uses his Sweep Edge, etc
    The case in which the victim is fully controllled (success with a raise) is clear. They only get to roll if they are asked to do something that would cause directly harm himself of those he cares about.
    What about a normal success? I assume it is easier for the victim to resist and break the puppet, but how much easier?

    With a Success, the puppet simply WILL NOT (no chance) obey commands where he may hurt himself or those he cares about. But he'll do anything else.
    With a Raise, the puppet has to win an opposed roll to disobey commands where he may hurt himself or those he cares about. If the puppet fails that opposed roll, he WILL harm himself or those he cares about,
