Tager[edit]

A tager is a person who has inextricably bonded themself with a being from the Far Realm. The idea is from Cthulhutech, not me!

Creating a Tager[edit]

When you are creating your Tager consider why they would have become a Tager. Some questions to ask yourself may include: How did your character originally learn of the occult? Did undergoing the Rite of Sacred Union affect your character's sanity or personality? Does your character keep their true nature hidden or does he/she boast about it? Why does your character despise the cults of aberrant beings? Furthermore why did you seek to become a Tager? Perhaps you were raised and/or born to Tagers or had an unfortunate encounter with aberrants and want revenge.

Quick Build[edit]

To make a quick build Tager follow these guidelines. First make either Strength or Dexterity your highest score (depending on your manifestation), followed by Charisma. Second choose the Acolyte background.
