Knave: Adding the Cypher System's Foci or JACK



I finally got around to checking out Knave and it's pretty darn cool for just seven pages.

It's a classless approach to OSR games and it's well done.

Somehow, it got me thinking of the Cypher System and Numenera and THAT got me thinking about adding Foci for the those games.

Here is my first knave with the Focus of Consorts with the Dead.
I decided to import The Black Hack's Usage die and start at D8. The way that works is whenever you use Consorts with the Dead, roll a d8, on a 1-2 then next time roll a d6. This continues down to d4 and then when you roll a 1-2, you are tapped out for the day and need a night's rest to reset the Usage Die.
