Perks and Talents

Perks are special resources a character has access to — money or property (like a really fast car or a headquarters), contacts, permits or licenses, and the like.

Talents are unusual abilities or attributes a character possesses. They’re usually better than Skills, but not quite as powerful as Powers — in fact, they’re sort of a cross or “middle ground” between the two. They include things like a natural sense of direction, a “sixth sense” for danger, having extremely fast reflexes, or being able to speed read. Some of them involve rolls similar to Skill Rolls; others function automatically.
