Seeing as I am using several hack I thought it wise to upload a list of all the hacks that you, the players, are aware of; this list is subject to change.

Cheers ^_^

Universal

Bone Breakage - Exceptional success with a blunt weapon breaks a bone for remainder of Story.
Head Shots - Any called shots to the head (-3 to hit) damage type gets upgraded.
Firearms do Automatic Damage - Firearms do a base damage equal to their modifier if hit is successful.
Subterfuge/Empathy - If being lied to the defender will roll Wits + Subterfuge instead of Wits + Empathy; Wits + Empathy will be reserved for sensing motives and hidden emotions.
!!!NEW!!!
Chance Roll - If your dice are reduced to zero, the storyteller will roll your chance die outside of combat.

Vampire: the Requiem

Blood Augmentation - 1 Vitae increases a physical attribute by 1 point for an entire scene; if you increase an attribute beyond your attribute cap you lose the bonus unless you keep spending Vitae to increase it every 3 turns. Cannot increase a physical attribute beyond 10.
Resilience - Subtract your points in Resilience from physical damage you receive; this ability is always on.
Vigor - Your points in Vigor become automatic successes in any non-combat strength related feat. In combat you may add your points in vigor to any strength based attack roll; this ability is always on.

Strange, I thought that's how it works by default.

Nope. I actually like this hack a lot. Subterfuge should be a pretty comprehensive skill. Empathy might give clues regarding the liar's feeling about the lie, but it doesn't give enough info to call someone's bluff, especially if they're a practised liar.

I think Aggregate may have posted using my laptop last night at Jimbo's place. I know I was confused as i'm not in the NWoD campaign.

In the book it allows either or and doesn't make a solid distinctions whereas I have. Also I should have done this earlier in retrospect but if you guys want to discuss the hacks I am making a new thread in the Home Brew forum (Click Here!) as I want this just to be the hacks themselves, thanks. ^_^

Wondered about that.
