We have converted the NWoD contract trees to fit a more FATE style stunt system. We paired down the trees to three step ladders, trying to encompass the idea of the desired contracts, and made a few adjustments to the mechanics as noted below.

Cost: All Contracts are at a cost. A Character must either spend 1 fate point, 1 mental or physical stress to activate a Contract.
Catch: A changeling may call on a contract's catch to avoid paying a cost. To do this the player must use the Create an Advantage action to create a “Catch Aspect”. If successful, the character may spend the invoke of the Aspect as the cost for the contract or use that aspect like normal. Some Catches aren't aspects but instead are situations. If the situation is fulfilled the contract can be activated at no cost.
Bans: If the requirement of the Ban is triggered, that aspect is placed upon the changeling. Bans are negative in nature and can be compelled to show the consequences of a changeling's choices.
