I vaguely remember a vanity that let you use linguistics as a day job. But after scouring all the books I own I cannot find it. Was this vanity a pipe dream?

Assuming so, is there a master list of vanities available anywhere, so that I may avoid this issue in the future?

Scrivener vanity in the field guide, page 60

They're only in the field guide and primer so far.

Scrivner lets you use Profession (Scribe) and gives a +1 bonus. It does not let you use Linguistics for day job rolls.

Scrivner (5 PP):
Scrivener (5 PP): You earn a living duplicating documents, taking dictation from the illiterate, and preparing formal writs in elegant calligraphy. If you use ranks in Profession (scribe) to calculate your bonus on Day Job checks, your business provides you a +1 circumstance bonus on such checks. Additionally, you may make a Linguistics check untrained to recognize a forgery or identify a foreign language (though not to translate it).

3/5

You could always use Profession (scribe) as a day job roll anyway.

I could have sworn that Damanta had made a list of vanities, but I cant find it anywhere :(

Got you covered, Tineke! You're right. Damanta made a Vanities Database.

Muahaha. Librarian search-fu. It's a super power!

Yes, I've come to the conclusion that your lodge may be the biggest provider of value-added tools in PFS. We get all sorts of shiny databases and other tools out of you folks from the Netherlands. I'm just waiting now for the PFS database that will dispense Dutch cheese, chocolate, and tulips. I'm sure one of you must be developing one.

Yes, and don't forget the Stroopwafels!

I did see this one, and found it oddly written. You already CAN use Profession (scribe) for your day job roll. Why did this have to give permission?

Assuming cerhiannon's quote above is accurate, it doesn't. It says "If you use ranks in Profession (scribe) to calculate your bonus on Day Job checks..."

We are currently trying out a chocolate sprinkle dispenser system.

It's easy: provide me with money (and an address), and food will magically appear on your doorstep! :D

I knew there was a Dutch import shop in Australia (due to friends that migrated).
But there is also totally a Dutch import shop in the USA. Guess we keep getting so many people addicted to stroopwafels its a thing.

(also quentin, gratz on the third star?)

It doesn't give you permission to use Profession (Scribe). It gives you a +1 bonus when you use Profession (Scribe) (EDIT: As your Day Job). It also lets you use Linguistics untrained when trying to recognize a forgery. Probably not the most useful vanity, but it does do something.

Ironically it does nothing if you took profession (Scrivener)

Yes, I know, I have never actually met a GM who would deny you the +1 on that

Having now read up on stroopwafels I think that this could become a new GM reward system. With every star, you get another stroopwafel! People would sign up to GM in droves. Alas, the caramel might make your dice sticky, but that's a small price to pay.

Hmm

Stroopwaffels have already been used as a GM bribe - in the past, when Dutch players visited the UK to play Living Greyhawk and needed UK GM's, the brought stroopwaffels :-)

Ah. How sad I am to be this far from Europe. Instead of american junkfood at gaming we could be having stroopwafels. (I think the name is part of the appeal here. Stroopwafel. Stroopwafel. It's so much fun to say!)

I, Buba Casanunda, am a cook by profession (day job), so I hand out recipes at the VC briefing when I go on missions and often I bring what's on "todays special" to the table with me.

Last game it was:

Coconut Drop Cookies:
6 cups shredded Mwangi coconut
5 cups granulated Mwangi sugar
3 cups all-purpose flour
6 fresh chicken eggs
1/4 cup melted cows butter
1 tablespoon light Mwangi rum
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS:
In the large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and beat until thoroughly mixed. Cover the bowl and chill for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper.

Roll the cookie dough into 1-inch balls and place them 2 inches apart on the baking sheet.

Bake for 10 minutes, or until browned on the bottom and around the edges. Cool the cookies on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container & transports well in a Handy Haversack.

5/5

to cook them properly you pile up a lot of boons... then cook till satirically crisp in a Bonfire of the Vanities. heeheeeeheee

Yay I updated my Vanities site :D

I finally added the licences (shame on me for neglecting that for more than a year and a half).

Also the first of two lists is available, namely the dayjob altering vanities.
The other list I'm going to make is which vanity enhances the dayjob roll. I'll try and get that one up faster than this one.

A few typos were found and corrected.

Thanks for putting a working link :)

It's a shame that the Sczarni vanities aren't available to Exchange members.

I could REALLY use a Front for my cart-chaser.

Stroopwafels are the best. But those people at the Huffingtonpost should be hanged. Suggesting corn syrup to be used for the stroop filling. Heresy!
