Special abilities in Risus

A character gets a special ability/power related to his cliché if the cliché is 4 or higher.

So the Barbarian from The Frozen Wastelands (4) might have “Listen to the Ice”, which grants him one roll to know instinctively who crossed a certain patch of land before him, in the last three days or so. Or he might have “Ice Sword Maker”, which gives him the ability to craft a sturdy weapon out of ice.

Example character:

Thrudd
Human (2)
Barbarian from the Frozen Wastelands (4)
– Ice Sword Maker (*)
Cold Reader (3)
3 Rerolls

(the asterisk demarks a special ability)
