Hook

From Wildermyth Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A powerful marker that changes how the character might interact with events, and also acts as a seed for the character to undergo a specific quest; applied by history and sometimes events. Hooks are fundamentally just aspects with a special naming convention and some extra tooling around them.

Heroes start the game with 3 hooks, which are specific character aspects and often take the form of a personality flaw or quirk.
