  • A Crúac Rite I came up with earlier today.

    Poaching the Moon's Children (•••••)

    Target number of successes: 10

    Contested by: Stamina + Primal Urge

    This ritual only works on werewolves.

    The victim becomes susceptible to the Embrace until the next sunrise. If the victim is exsanguinated by a vampire, the victim doesn't change back into his human form, if not already, for a number of turns equal to the vampire's Blood Potency, as would otherwise be the case upon death. This gives the vampire ample time to Embrace the werewolf in his non-human form, causing the neonate to spend the rest of his unlife in that form. For practical reasons this ritual is almost always performed with a captured subject mentally dominated to take the desired form.

    The embraced childe immediately loses all werewolf specific traits, such as Primal Urge, Harmony, Renown, Gifts, Werewolf and Pack Rites, as well as all Merits with werewolf specific prerequisites. His previous Renown are still present and visible in the Shadow, but in the form of scars rather than glowing brands, and they no longer grant him an effective Spirit Rank.

    What the newly embraced does keep are most of the traits of the form into which he was embraced, such as the teeths and claws of the form, the Perception bonus when using wolf senses, and the Attribute, Size and Speed modifications. Additionally, werewolves embraced while in Gauru have their Manipulation decreased by 2 to a minimum of 1.

    Needless to say this is considered an affront towards Forsaken and Pure alike. If the practice of this ritual becomes known, do expect a surprise visit to your haven quite soon.


    An accompanying Merit:

    Stealing the Father's Forms (• to ••••)
    Prerequisites: Protean •••, being embraced through Poaching the Moon's Children.
    Effect: For each dot in this Merit the vampire may replace one of the animal forms for Beast's Skin with on of the forms of werewolves. She is still subject to all the limitations of Beast's Skin, including the need to kill a werewolf through exsanguination, and slumbering for a full day and night in her Unmarked Grave after the deed.
    Drawback: The werewolf has to die while in the desired form. This may prove challenging; especially when seeking the dreaded Gauru form.

    • Here is a Cruac ritual I created, feel free to criticize me

      Rite of Return (3 dot Cruac spell)

      This spell may only affect dead ghouls.

      The victim must not have returned to life in any fashion before this ritual.

      Upon casting this ritual, the vampire slits their wrist, pouring a number of Vitae equal to the ghoul's health down the ghoul's throat. The ghoul then rises at the next sunrise. The ghoul no longer naturally heals, but gains the ability to spend Vitae to heal. This Vitae may only be taken from a vampire, no other creatures are acceptable. If the ghoul does not receive monthly Vitae feedings, The ghoul dies, and if unable to be resurrected through this power or the Embrace. Ghouls revived in this way may still be Embraced, and function as ghouls in ever other way.

          • A favourite of Elder Acolytes with an authoritarian bent.

            Restoring Servitude (••••)
            Target number of successes: 7
            Contested by: Stamina + Blood Potency
            Who's to say ghouldom stops at the Embrace? By way of this rite the Acolyte can prolong their role as regnant even on other Kindred.
            The subject of this ritual must be a Kindred present at the casting, being fed Vitae (part of the cost of the ritual, and still capable of inflicting both the Blood Bond as well as Vitae addiction). During the feeding the ritualist spends one point of Willpower as if ghouling a mortal. If the ritual succeeds the subjects gains up to two Discipline dots that the ritualist already knew, but for the purposes of the Predatory Aura their Blood Potency counts as if two dots lower. If this brings their effective Blood Potency down to zero the subject no longer exudes the Predatory Aura and can no longer Lash Out. These effects lasts for a single month, but can be sustained by feeding the subject the ritualist's own Vitae. No further Willpower is required.

            Edit: Critique is always welcome, even if it's just "looks nice".

              Still really like your werewolf-stealing Cruac rites. Anyway: for this one, perhaps the reduction in BP also applies to Blood Sympathy?

              This would also work well as an Invictus Oath. In fact, it might work better.... "Oath of Subjugation."

              • Do you mean inflicting Blood Bonds? Blood Sympathy isn't dependent on BP. That would be a fitting drawback for the victim.
                In hindsight you're completely correct about it resembling an Oath. You don't even have to rework it much for it to work. Still, I don't believe that any Covenant should get monopoly on their thematic powers. Ordo Dracul, for instance, has one of their three core book Coils be all about building hierarchy through their blood. And having it as a Crúac ritual retains both flavour (as in it's possible to force it upon others) and the concept of "ghouling" other Kindred, which was the idea I based the ritual around.

                  • Quick merit I came up with for Dhampir:

                    Unusual Origins (••)
                    Prerequisites: Dhampir, character creation only
                    Effect: Your character has strange parentage in some form or another; perhaps their Vampiric parent has a strange bloodline, perhaps their living parent was a supernatural creature of some sort, perhaps they were conceived (or born) in a locale like a Wyrm's Nest, or perhaps some stranger circumstance still defines their conception or birth. Because of this, your character has a 4th 'in clan' theme of some unique descriptor; a child of a Werewolf might have a 'Predation' theme, for instance. Work out the exact details and applications of this unique Theme with your Storyteller.

                    • Is there any homebrew Invictus Oaths? I can't find them using the search engine or on the list.

                      • Hi,

                        Are you planning to include Storyteller Vault content in this list?
                        I must admit I didn't read all 22 pages to check, but I couldn't see anything obvious in the initial post to say either way - nor do I just want to jump in and advertise spam.

                        • Please, I would love some feedback on this homebrew Merit. In particular, I would like to know if there is any lore or rules I might have missed that contradict this homebrew Merit of mine.

                          Vitae Battery (•••)
                          Prerequisite: Ghoul from a ghoul family
                          Vitae is perhaps the single most important thing to every vampire out there, yet it is also the least understood phenomenon. Kindred need it to survive, but can't generate it on their own, thus they rely on the blood of mortals the blood of life to revitalize their undead bodies. If the vampire then feeds his own blood his Vitae to a ghoul, the ghoul can store a limited amount of it for later use. It is commonly accepted that ghouls depend on their vampire regnants for this, they can't generate their own Vitae, only Kindred can give them more Vitae, which ensures the ghoul's loyalty. Even ghoul families depend on the Kindred this way, right? Well, not quite. Although rare indeed, some ghoul families have discovered that their bodies generate Vitae all on their own without needing to rely on the Kindred whatsoever.
                          Effect: Your character generates her own Vitae at a rate of one Vitae per night.
                          Drawback: Because of your ability to generate your own Vitae, many Kindred might mistrust you, and some might even seek your destruction.

                            Personally I like this and find it to be an edge over the average Ghoul that made Revenants(Masquerade Ghoul families) a truly unique thing to play. I'd simply limit the disciplines they use to the physical ones if not trained by their regnant.
