  • Can Chimera actually kill humans?

    I been wondering a lot. i know that if a chimera shows up, banality will eat it up like a candy

    but when it comes to Nervosa and Noctnitsa. i been thinking about throwing a creature like Slenderman in my games or something similar..could it be possible to be able to manifest itself and not be harmed by banality ?

    It will still be vulnerable to Banality. Although if you look at the lore of Slenderman (like many such things) you would see that its behaviour seems to be doing a pretty good job at avoiding Banality triggers.

      As long as they can avoid Banality, all they really need is the wyrd rede.

          C20, page 323 or 2nd edition, page 223.

          I'm happy to answer questions to help clarify, but there comes a point where if you want to use the book, you really should read the book.

              Basically, the chimera is getting maybe a point of Banality in a scene when attacking, and quite often none, and while a chimera is more vulnerable than a Changeling one point of temporary Banality won't kill it.

                Arguably slenderman's destabilizing effect on a person could lower their banality while making them easier to influence... and now I'm wondering if a sufficiently powerful chimera could induce bedlam on a mortal

                  It's also worth asking where this encounter takes place.

                  If the human stumbles upon a glade the chimera might be less threatened by banality.

                    I use the following Redes for the nastier sorts of Nightmare Chimera:

                    Animate Dead
                    Allows a chimera to take over a dead body of a creature of the Dreaming and send it against the living. Roll Glamour vs local Banality. A zombie thus animated has Physical Attributes of 3 each; 7 no-penalty Health levels and a Brawl of 3 but no other Attributes. It only works with one corpse at a time. Nasty chimera may use any Social Abilities they have through the host body to intimidate, harass, seduce or traumatize living victims. The chimera may use this Rede on corpses of mortals if it also possesses the Wyrd rede.
                    Power cost: 10
                    Chimera Point Cost: 5
                    Use Cost: 1 Glamour

                    Blighted Touch
                    If the spirit deals damage on an attack, the target must make a reflexive Willpower roll. If she fails, her negative characteristics dominate her personality (Seelie to Unseelie) for the next few hours. If she botches, the change is permanent. The chimera may use this Rede on mortals if it also possesses the Enchantment or Wyrd redes.
                    Power cost: 2
                    Chimera Point Cost:
                    Use Cost: None

                    Corruption
                    By making a Glamour challenge against the target's Willpower, the bane implants a single evil suggestion that their target must act on before the session is through. The chimera may use this Rede on mortals if it also possesses the Enchantment or Wyrd redes.
                    Power cost: 1
                    Chimera Point Cost: 3
                    Use Cost: 1 Willpower

                    Examples:

                    Meat Puppet
                    These spirits embody innocence defiled. Meat Puppets wander the Dreaming in search of those young beings (both human and animal) who have suffered wrongful deaths. A Meat Puppet will possess anything from a drowned kitten to a young child beaten to death by her father. Puppets hunger for the feel of young flesh. They wish only to possess a body and wreak vengeance on those with “natural” bodies. However, they are not strong enough to take a living body, so they prey upon the dead. They possess the recently dead cadavers of young children or animals.
                    Although individual Meat Puppets are not very strong, they often appear in groups. Since their bodies have already died, Meat Puppets attack unrelentingly and can only be stopped by utterly destroying the host body. Thus, even a group of Meat Puppet “kittens” can be very dangerous.
                    Attributes: Strength 1, Dexterity 3, Stamina 1,
                    Glamour: 4, Willpower: 5
                    Health Levels: OK, -2, -5, Incapacitated
                    Redes: Animate Dead, Traverse Dreaming, Wyrd

                    Mind Eaters
                    These Nightmare Chimera appear as small, ticklike arachnids that burrow into the skull of anyone they encounter. Mind eaters feed on the glamour generated by xenophobic fear of outsiders, encouraging hatred for the unknown.
                    Attributes: Strength 1, Dexterity 3, Stamina 1,
                    Glamour: 5, Willpower: 5
                    Health Levels: OK, OK, -1, -1, -2, -5, Incapacitated
                    Redes: Blighted Touch, Corruption, Enchantment, Possession, Traverse Dreaming
