Also Called

  • Deal With the Devil
  • Dealing
  • Faustian Bargain
  • Oath/Pact Creation


The user can give a person a power, an object of power or change nearly any event within their power to something as trivial as transporting them to a location or as simple as knowledge on something. Some other uses include being their servant till they die or something as extreme as giving them a plot coupon.

They can also create their own contract granting something within a contract's payment being as no payment.

The user can take anything from a contracted client be it their powers, emotions, memory, soul or event in their past or future and maybe even someone connected to the client who they can choose to make him or her their servant. The contract can be fulfilled by doing some task or arduous payment.

The user can bend the agreement to their own desires limited only by his/her power and therefore they can change the contracted into a monster as a way to give him or her a power. As long the agreement didn't say they could not perform a certain action their restraints are somewhat relative. The user can also simply agree to grant the person what they want without telling them what their payment is or when they will pay it.



  • Users may require a lot of power to make a deal.
  • If the payment is the power source used to make contract happen (Souls).
  • Destroying the contract may nullify it.
  • Contract can be void if contracted item is destroyed.
  • User can only give power or gain powers within their limits.
  • To receive any payment the user may need a lot of power.
  • The user must follow the nearly unbreakable rules of the contract not filled with loopholes which they can exploit to their own ends.
  • There is small chance of a loophole being created in the agreement by a low level user.
  • Payment may be paid at a later point as agreed upon in the contract.
  • Payment can be anything even things yet to come.
  • May be overruled by a higher power. For example: A Deity.
  • Payment can be transferred to a third party if the said party agrees to it (knowingly or not).
  • May be more conditions to the deal than expected or wanted.
