  • mofous From what I've seen there aren't any listed merits or powers to allow a Beghotten to feed by deliberately releasing their Horror upon the dreamscape.

    SdeSpencer I didn't see anything that explicitly says that its impossible for a Beast to become kin with a Hero, but in my mind this would be an ST call that borders on a houserule. I mean the Hero in Conquering who was most amiable to Beasts pretty much had the rule of pass through and don't cause trouble and I won't kill you. So while I wouldn't say its explicitly against the RAW it feels less like a thing that would happen in a Chronicle on the player's side and very much like something that would be more of a story hook based on, "Wait why would a Hero go out of their way to save a Beast?"

      Take control of your horror, have them travel through the local hive of the primordial dream. The horror can potentially then travel into the dream of someone, in which it can then attempt to terrify the individual in a manner appropriate for your hunger. Finding the dream of someone specific could be rather difficult though and there are no rules for it.

        • I know you merge and take control of your Horror if you enter your lair, but if you physically travel to a chamber of the primordial dream do you also merge with your horror?

            Only if it's within or merged with your own Lair.

            • Here's a question: does the Beast have to be the direct cause the fear in order to potentially gain Satiety from it? In other words, can a Beast feed by witnessing "natural" (or otherwise incidental) trauma?

              All of the instances I could find of a Beast feeding would seem to suggest the affirmative, but I don't see anywhere that it is explicitly specified that the Beast must be the instigator to feed from someone. The obvious exception is Family Dinner, in which they don't even have to directly participate, but that seems to operate on different metaphysical rules than normal feeding.

              The character concept I had in mind was storm-chaser with a Hunger for Ruin, who would hypothetically feed primarily off the despair and destruction felt by the storms he chases, which he doesn't (necessarily) have any hand in causing.


              The longer I study science the more I am convinced that it is functionally indistinguishable from what our ancestors would refer to as sorcery. And I would know, being both scientist and sorcerer.

              • Considering there's a sample character that gains satiety by unleashing her social media followers into doxxing folk to feed from that, signs point to no.

                • She's an Insatiable though, so the normal rules may not apply.

                    I believe that she has to see a video or live feed of the victim killing themselves to feed, though.
