Immortal: Numina

Approved Numina & Global HRs

Dice Rolls

  • Power + Finesse are rolled when using Numina rather than the stats listed in the books. This is for thematic reasons.
  • Any resistance or contested action automatically includes a Supernatural Trait stat if possessed.
  • If the book mentions Supernatural Tolerance, this is replaced by your Supernatural Trait if possessed.

    • This is usable both ways.
    • The power does not work on supernatural targets, even if technically mortal (such as ghouls or magi).

Purified Specific Numina House Rules


  • Please read Book of Spirits, pg 137, and 138, the Resistance and targeting. It tells you how to determine your Range, that Defense, Cover, Concealment, and Armor all applies, and there is a penalty to your roll equal to the Gauntlet Rating if you are attempting to use a Numina across it. Please remember all of these things.

  • Chi 1 = 4 Numina
  • Chi 2 = 5 Numina
  • Chi 3 = 6 Numina
  • Chi 4 = 7 Numina
  • Chi 5 = 9 Numina
