Chaos Taint on Items


Chaos Taint on Items

I’m going to add some items into my game that have the ‘Chaos Taint’ ability. Only problem is I’m not sure how to work it. At the moment, here’s my general idea –

Chaos Tainted items are usually some normal, magical item that has been “buffed” up by Chaos. Giving it the Chaos Taint ability. How this ability would work would be something like this –

Chaos Taint: After an adventure roll a D6. If a 1 comes up roll on the following chart. If you already have a ability from this chart or have more then one Chaos Tainted item, minus 1 per item/ability.
1) +1 Luck
2) +1 Toughness
3) +1 Wounds
4) +1 Move
5) +1 Initiative
6) +Weapon Skill
You then add what you rolled to your Chaos Taint score. Once you reach a Chaos Taint score of 6 your warrior has been summoned by the gods of chaos and is out of play.

So far, I’m fine with the above and think it’s workable. My issue is how would I work it in around events and people dealing with Temples and Witchfinders?

How do I deal with the Warriors that say, “I’m going to just un-equip and hide the item while I deal with that event.”.

PS. I really like the idea of items that tempt players to pick up and use and then have it mess with them later on.

PSS. I’ve also toyed around with the idea of the Chaos Tainted item making them more susceptible to Choas Magic and if hit by the Choas magic have them roll on this table right away.

Wait, which roll gets added to your Chaos Taint score? The way I'm reading it, you'd roll a six, get +1 to your WS, and then immediately be out of the game. I know that can't be right...

Here I go, trying to make it clearer.

If the warrior used any Chaos Tainted items during the adventure. After the adventure the warrior must roll a D6. Subtracting 1 for each Chaos item the warrior has and subtracting how many Chaos Marks the warrior has. If the Warrior gets a 0 or less on that D6, that warrior gets what he rolled on the D6 as that many Chaos Marks and get's to roll on the following table - Once.

1) +1 Luck
2) +1 Toughness
3) +1 Wounds
4) +1 Move
5) +1 Initiative
6) +Weapon Skill

If the Warrior ends up with a total of 6 Chaos Marks the warrior has been corrupted completely by the gods of Chaos and can't resist their summons. IE. Out of Play.
