Consequence of a Sin
Anytime a Sin is used you must pay a price, this effect is known as Cursed Retaliation. Using a Minor sin will add a Curse Die to an accumulating pool; Using a Moderate Sin will add 2 curse die to the pool, and a Major will add 4 curse die. The effects of cursed retaliation won't take effect until the following day when activating a Sin that has added a die to the pool. example, upon using the mask of lust's and the mask of wrath's minor sin effects 2 die will be placed into the curse pool should the player not reduce the pool the following day (in game 24 hour period or after a long rest) the next time the player uses the mask of lust or wrath they will make a curse roll before proceeding to any effect of the mask. When the cursed retaliation activates you will roll all dice within the pool against the mask's curse chart. After the roll, remove your Cha modifier from the total. After the curse effect takes place, take up to your charisma modifier of cursed dice out of the pool and leave the rest for the next time you roll (Chart) To reduce the pool without risking the curse effect, the player may take steps to reduce the pool by following the Virtues of Cleansing. (The Virtues of Cleansing are up to DM discretion)
Other Players that wear the Fox of Sin Mask
Anyone other than the original Fox of Sin (Possible DM NPC) and the Fox of Sin that formed the contract with the Demon Prince tied to the mask that attempts to wear any of the Masks will immediately half to make a %D roll against the cursed retaliation chart and subtract their charisma modifier from the roll but they immediately take the effect rolled.
Determining the Cursed Roll- 1D10 is the Die added for the Cursed Retaliation Pool, add the Total amount of Cursed Dice to the pool and roll, from then remove your charisma modifier from the total and any estimate past 100 is counted as a 100 roll. After the effect, subtract your charisma modifier from the dice in the pool, the remaining are left for the next day's activation.
Virtues of Cleansing Hard Examples:
*1# Donating a sum to charity will take a number of D10s off the Cursed pool roll. (400gp will remove 1D10, 800gp will remove 2D10, 2000gp will remove 3D10, 4000gp will remove 4D10)
*2# Participating in a Religion that you follow Sacraments will remove 1D10 from the cursed pool
*3# Obeying the Virtues a number of 7 times a day will remove 1D10 from the cursed pool (Feeding the Homeless, Helping someone out, Generosity for others)
*4# Striving to be better than the day before by doing/giving twice as much the day prior of Virtues of Cleansing.
*5# Have the Grace to give to those who don't deserve it by giving a gift to an enemy or to someone who doesn't like you.
*6# AUTHENTICITY - Set a Goal for what your character wants to do without anyone's opinion and then ask if you want to do it because your great at what you do or if its for Integrity. Step back and take a look at yourself, are you being who you really want to be or someone that others want you to be. Being true to yourself isn’t easy. Pulling off the mask that hides your flaws and living in the fullness of who you are, creates a contagion that gives others the courage to do the same. Once a day if you complete a goal that you set without influence but is to better yourself as a person you may remove 1D10 from the cursed pool.
*7# The most important virtue for success is the ability to cooperate. If you can’t play well with others you’re going to get kicked out of the sandbox. Learn to cooperate and you’ll be successful. Show Kindness and Generosity to those you work with because “People won’t remember what you said or did, they will remember how you made them feel.” If you're the leader Show Humility and I'm sure you'll be thanked for it. Once per Day if you cooperate and collaborate with your companions/friends to meet a goal and if possible showing as much kindness, generosity, and humility as possible you may remove 1D10 from the cursed pool.

Foxes of Sin in the World
|“||Balance requires a passive approach to each situation and how to handle it.||”|
|—Konzu, Dwarf Fox of Sin|
The Class Fox of Sin could be a High Ranking Order that Hunts downs those that disrupt the Balance of the World. Killing the followers of a newly flourishing good god, or Rampaging through a cult for sacrificing a large number of people. They could be those that struggle with constant confliction on whether to co-exist/hide from the demon gods army or to support in banishing them. A Fox of Sin could be a lonely wondering peasant that does what is right to those that wronged him and is cruel to humble adventures because he has the foresight from experience.
NPC Reactions: People will think you odd for wearing/carrying such exotic masks all the time, Some may even ask if you came from a festival. Those with detect magic will get a mixed sense of dread or glory from the masks. Using a Sin near some NPC might frighten them into thinking you are a demon of some kind. Unless the NPC would be Impressed with your power/control over such an ability.
Fox of Sin Lore
Characters with ranks in Knowledge (Religion) can research a Fox of Sin to learn more about them. When a character makes a skill check, read or paraphrase the following, including information from lower DCs.
|10||Foxes of Sin make deals with Demons and Priests to Power their abilities.|
|15||A Fox of Sins ability is the power to amplify their emotions into physical power.|
|20||A Fox of Sin is always gonna pay a price for using their power but it is their willpower and charisma that keep them going.|
|25||The First Fox of Sin arose from being outcast by the Demons & Gods for keeping the balance but they were mere Mortals and the sands of time eventually caught up to them and so came the day that the Mantle and Teachings were passed down in secrecy. The young were foolish with the power and many either fell to desire or rose to glory but there is always a price to pay to keep the balance. The price was the teachings of the Fox of Sin lost to the ages and forgotten . Always remember they may be possessed by that which gives them power someday!|
