This Belongs in a Museum

Should runners come across an item that is historically or artistically significant, they may anonymously donate it to the museum.

However Notoriety and other repercussions may still happen.

By doing so runners on the team may either

  • Acquire Shean at cost -2 (Only applicable once)

Or

  • Increase his loyalty by 1

Every myth and legend has at least a spark of truth to it. Now that many of these myth and legends have come to reality again. You can fact check the accuracy of any mythological weakness.

Roll a Connection test to see how well he is able to remember which are myth and which are fact.
