    Fun Activities as a Beast

    Having just read the Fun Activities as a Mage thread, I thought we might want to tackle something similar with Beasts.

    If you can think of fun stuff to do as a Beast, or creative usage of their abilities, add them here.


    Use Shadowed Soul to repeatedly poke someone, but not be there when they turn around.

    Reenact Jason Bourne with From the Shadows. Use it to sneak into movie theatres to watch Spy movies.

    Be a fairly good creepy-Gypsy-style Fortune Teller with Eye of Heaven and Mimir's Wisdom. Make sure your scary futures come true.

    Make fun of Strongmen by being really lanky and still throwing more weight around than them.
    Clubber people with Car Doors a la Hulk.

    Reenact Lelouch vii Britannia with You Must Obey! and Fear is Infectious. Your command? "Kneel before Zod!"

    Be that Nemsis that lures people into their Lair, and keeps them there for a while, before you inflict "You deserve This!" and kick them out right in front of the police station.

    Alternatively, use You Cannot Wake Up and They are all Around you! to make someone sprout crazy theories to the point no one takes them seriously anymore. "The Chinese Deliverymen are really an ancient order of People Ninjas from Venus, and now that I know their secret, they are out to get me!"

    Use Alien Allure and Siren's Treacherous Song to get a better tip. Use Looming Presence to get a great tip. Use You Must Obey! to get ALL the tips.

    Be really threatening with Looming Presence despite being a nice and gentle giant because everything you say COULD be construed as a veiled or ironic threat.

    Annoy your Brood mates by using Downpour to water your plants.

    Be a scary ass batman who uses smoke grenades to call down lightning and fire.

    Spend Satiety on Storm-Lashed just to ruin your Ex's wedding day.

    Go around inflicting Basilisk's Touch on annoying people with the words "You alright? You look a bit green mate!" in a club.

    Be a very good patriotic spy with Needs Must, spending Satiety on a target to get first-hand informations by listening in on their meetings.

    Use Bugs Everywhere! on that annoying Cheerleader squad. Make it look like they utterly overreact to a harmless prank with plastic spiders.

    Simply be a Rocky-style Boxer with Relentless Hunter, possibly Unbreakable.

    So far, we mostly played around with Atavisms, sometimes Nightmares.
    We also have a whole host of other abilities, like Birthrights and Merits to play around with, though!

    A Beast with the Vampire Kinship Merit Feign Death can play really mean pranks: ever found a dead body in your garden? Ever panicked, called the cops, and then the body was gone? "I swear officer, it was right here!" "uh-huh." Rest assured some Begotten had a lot of fun. Could also be used to emphasize that, when you say you're dead tired, you mean it.

    The next two could also be some sort of plot hook I guess.
    With Walk Lightly, your character is pretty much free to casually commit crimes - and it is much easier to plant false leads. Add Enemy Within to take someone's appearance, do shit, then take another person's appearance to repeat the same shit (paint graffiti, maybe?), rinse and repeat until people believe there is a new Cult in town or something. Of course, you could also just mess with people. Cue following conversation: "Sir, we got another one!" "Why the hell are people running around spitting in other people's faces?!"

    Your Beast has beef with some powerful Kindred? With Sanguivore you can go on a killing spree and put pressure on the local Kindred populace, laying out clues that draw Hunters on your opponent's path. Even if the Hunters won't kill them, the local Kindred might get annoyed with the disruptions, and if you played your cards well, might turn on your target. Kick back, get some popcorn and enjoy the show.

    Using Primordial Pathways to travel all around the world is an obvious possibility. Bonus: avoid customs. You could use this to smuggle drugs and weapons - but really, the bonus here is getting authentic tamales for lunch, fresh sushi for dinner, and fresh seasonal fruits as a snack in-between. Your fruit salad will be the envy of the town.

    Eshmaki with an alternative Birthright can grab hold of someone annoying and scream "For your sins, may God strike you blind!" and diminish their eyesight. Besides a possible route for some pseudo-spiritual Beasts to feed, this can also be used to convince people that eating to much of x is bad for their eyesight.

    Use the alternative Inguma message Birthright to remind your roommate it's his turn to empty the dishwasher or go grocery shopping.
    Use the "Notice me!" Birthright to get someone to pay proper attention to your awesomeness. Maybe you use it to make your ex notice you flirt with that cute girl and make her jealous. Maybe you use it to make sure your alibi really sticks. Maybe you just do it to get that cute guy's attention.

    Lair Traits like Hurricane but also works with Storm-Lashed etc.: Take walks outside when no one in their right mind would go outside. Because you're just that badass.
    Alternative Makara 'Juggernaught' Birthright: take a walk in a hurricane. Impress your Broodmates because they know it's not one of your lair traits.
    Use the Namtaru 'Spook' Birthright to provide someone with the scariest halloween experience they've ever had. Or use it to get the "Don't talk to me until I had my morning coffee" message finally getting taken seriously.

    Use the alternative Talassii 'Slow' Birthright to easily win races. Since it decreases Dexterity, you could also sabotage olympic events or sport games for the heck of it. Might get dark when the sport's car racing. Or slow down pizza drivers, possibly cause a traffic jam just as you walk next to the sidewalk.

    Satiety Expenditure Alien Allure: never wait in line to get into the club. Always get that table at the Restaurant.
    Siren's Treacherous Song: Make annoying phonecalls With Other People's voices.

    From the Shadows + Skin Deep: Be part of the crowd. Pick a target. Morph a friggin scary face, hulk out right in front of them to give them the fright of a lifetime, then quickly disappear into the crowd again.

    Enemy Within + From the Shadows. Pick a target. Change into a person, walk up to them on the sidewalk, and say something like "This isn't real!" or "You need to wake up!", then just go on and disappear in the crowd. Change into another person, rinse and repeat.

    Low satiety Infested:
    "Oh god my head hurts." *Collapse on ground or nearest wall and just have your head burst into bugs on impact.

    Satiety boost Vengeful Earth + Cyclopean strength= Giant stone arms that let you pick up people's cars and stack them on top of eachother or on roofs, or whatever is nearby that it would make no bloody sense for a parked car to be on/in.

    I also believe Skin Deep can be used for all kinds of, "Dang it do I have a mosquito bite or something?"

    Storm-Lashed yet again: Remember those DBZ power up scenes where They start to basically cause Winds to blow away from them as a Show of power? (Before stones start Flying up, usually before making noises or growling at most) You can do that too! Why? Intimidation, and Rule of Cool, that's why!
    Throw in Skin Deep, and you can reenact the first super saiyan Transformation, complete with lightning bolts in the background. Just in scarier. Also, worlds most amazing cosplay. It is mindshattering- literally!

    Also, Skin Deep to replay a horrific hulk. "You wont like me when im angry" indeed. Or go for an Oozaru form, to keep the dbz.theme going.

    Titanic Blow + Storm-Lashed: Send your enemy flying through the air with the first strike, then blow them out of the sky with the second!


    Wings of the Raptor + Titanic Blow: Crash through the ceiling when entering a room. Leave in the same fashion you arrived!


    From the Darkness + Infested: "How the hell do they keep getting in here!?"


    Alien Allure + Basilisk's Touch: Spend the weekends communing with your spirit animal, the poison dart frog!

    Storm-Lashed, yet again - work on building an array capable of harnessing and storing the electrical energy from your lightning strikes. Smugly drive your electric car everywhere and tell people how low your power bill is each month.

    Storm-Lashed: Make bets against everyone that the beautiful weather will turn into a storm because "you can feel it in your knee".
    Never lose those bets.

    Also Storm-Lashed: Help someone gain a reputation of being unlucky - by having lightning strike twice (or maybe thrice). If they die, also strike their tombstone - preferably once a month.

    Titanic Blow - Lure a Hero out to the sports field for your climactic battle. Send them flying through the goal post while screaming "Goooooallll!"


    Alien Allure, Cyclopeon Strength - Enter weight lifting competitions, make the other contestants feel inadequate.


    Mimir's Wisdom, We Know All Your Secrets - Proclaim you have discovered the answer to life's mysteries. Offer to answer one question a year for anybody who passes your trial. If they pass, make it so that literally the first question out of their mouths is the one you answer.


    Wings of the Raptor, Cyclopean Strength, Flying and Falling - Take your friends on a roller coaster joy ride over the city streets.

    Enemy Within + Infernal Machine : "Yup. That's who just caused your car to crash: the legendary, unassuming Antichrist Toddler in his Stroller of Doom. And no, nobody will ever believe you if you say them so."

    Alien Allure, Enemy Within (or Doppelganger), Alien Mindset, Primordial Cult:
    1) Appear to one group as the Archangel, sent by the Almighty Deity to ward them against the sins of the wicked.
    2) Appear to a second group as the Prince of Darkness and Ruler of Hell, coming to them to free them from religion.
    3) Lead the zealots in holy crusades and conversion sprees against the satanists, indulging in your Hunger for Punishment.
    4) When it bores you, switch to Transgression, and join your satanists cultists as they corrupt and debase everything and everyone... including your zealots.
    5) Every mistake or bad deed you make, just say to each cult the other's responsible (in a sense, that is true, after alll....). Let them escalate in retaliation while eating the metaphorical pop-corn of their breaking point.
    6) When a Hero comes, convince both cults he's the other cult's Chosen One, and enjoy seeing both conspirations go on a rampage to kill him.
    7) If all of this REALLY bores you, just add a group of nihilistic atheists and the Hunger for Ruin.

    Ravenous Maw (Satiety Expenditure), Connected Lair, Well-Stocked Lair: Attend airports and stations, selling your Lair as a free hotel room for thrill seekers seasoned to the World of Darkness. Bonus point if you have a Horrorspawn clerk and/or Thrall staff within your Lair.

    Use Horrorspawn and Horrospawn Minions efficiently:
    • A Makara working at Greenpeace, raising the corpse of the whales and sharks killed by poachers.
    • An Eshmaki crazy cat-lady, whose dead cats now frighten the whole neighborhood for her.
    • A crazy Namtaru who will only imbue one of the wasps in the nest inside his roof with a Minion Horrorspawn... but over-charge it with Dread Powers to make it the deadliest and most hard-to-spot killing machine that ever lived. (Also works on moskitoes).
