DOWNLOAD: Charm Addict

Pearls of power in your biceps, spells of speed for your calves. Did you pierce your throat with steel reeds, so you would sound better?

This is the third in a series of four player-character classes for use with 5E rules. (Other characters are the Demon’s Ex, Quick Jackfruit, and Wise Serpent.) The Charm Addict is a body-mod enthusiast — obsessed with self-improvement via magic charms inserted into their skin.

Zedeck’s Design Notes:

The Charm Addict is inspired by real-world body magic, common throughout SEAsia. Penis bells, studs, and pins: fang muk, palang, sacra, all the rest of it. The practice of susuk. I grew up with stories of film actresses, rumoured to have golden needles in their checks, mystically enhancing their beauty; footballers with metal plates in their shins, to augment their skill.

The note Mun Kao had attached to his character illustration said: “medieval cyborg guy”. Mechanically the Charm Addict occupies a Magic-User-y niche. But thematically they are our take on cyberpunk’s over-augmented-street-samurai trope —

Except augments don’t eat your soul or dehumanise you? All sorts of things have souls: snakes, trees, needles. And changing one’s nature is only natural.

People tut at the Charm Addict not because they are an abomination — but because they an irresponsible obsessive with no self-control. A lothario who keeps taking on new lovers, satisfying none. A dysfunctional polycule in a single body.
