Mishaps
1d6
Mishap
1
Severely injured in action. (This is the same as a result of 2 on the Injury table.)
2
After three lovers in three days (a new personal best) the fourth is a bit peeved and decides to put you out to pasture. Roll Melee Combat 8+ or Persuade 9+ to escape uninjured.
3
You acquire a wealthy patron who’s always robed and hooded. During one of your many midnight meetings, you detect a distinctive serpentine continence to your patron in a mirror. Roll Deception 8+ and the patron does not notice your observation. If you fail, you can either throw Melee Combat 10+ or flee with an Athletics 8+ or Stealth 8+. If you fail, you wake up with a massive headache and you’re certain something has been done to you.
4
You hit a creative brick wall and realize that art is not for you. Lose your Mustering-Out roll for this term and become a Drifter. If you are a Spy, you may choose another career as normal.
5
You worked for several years on your greatest project, but its reception is far from expected. You cause a riot and barely escape with your life. You’re declared a blasphemer, an anarchist, and a wanted criminal. It’s time for a name change and a new career, methinks. Lose your Mustering-Out roll for this term.
6
Injured. Roll on the Injury table.

Events
2d6
Events
2
Disaster! Roll on the mishap table, but you are not ejected from this career.
3
You’re approached by a criminal organization that wants to steal some paintings or sculptures. If you’re a painter or sculptor, they’re willing to steal yours and hand them back over to you as long as you insure them through a “recalcitrant” moneylender who’s refusing to acquiesce to the gang’s demands. If you’re not a painter or sculptor, they request your social contacts to perform their heist. If you accept, roll Soc 7+ to gain a +3DM on one Cash Mustering-Out roll. If you decline (or you fail your Soc roll) you gain an Enemy.
4
A rich patron loves your work. Gain +2 DM to one Cash Mustering-Out roll.
5
You have a great run and can tell you’re improving. Gain one level in Art (any).
6
After a particularly fine performance or display, you find yourself sleeping for ten or twelve hours per day. In your sleep, you repeatedly perform the same actions over an over to a tune you can’t quite remember upon awaking. Gain Magic 0.
7
Life Event. Roll on the Life Events table.
8
One of your works gains notoriety among a non-human race - apparently it means something quite different to them than to your normal audience and is viewed as an inspired piece of art. Gain +1 Soc.
9
You travel extensively performing or supporting your work. You’re well-received and gain 1d3 contacts.
10
You are contacted by a spy. If you are a spy, you receive additional training to perform your mission. Gain Recon 1 or +1 Soc. If you are not a spy, you have the opportunity to become a Spy next term without having to roll to change careers and without starting over in rank. You also gain a Contact.
11
Though happenstance, you end up teaching others your craft and expand your normal repertoire of abilities through interacting with the local nobility in a different field. Either gain Advocate 1 or a +4 DM to your next Advancement roll.
12
You create or perform a work that will be remembered. You are automatically promoted.
