  • Can werewolves be targeted for Spirit Claiming or Possession?

    I noticed that Spirits can claim or Possess beings that can resist with 2 attributes + Primal Urge. Does that mean that a daring Spirit can attempt to control a Werewolf or other Supernatural template? I know that the Strix can possess Kindred so it makes sense that werewolves might get targeted as well.

    Yes, all supernatural templates are open to possession or claiming, unless their template forbids it for some reason.

      Yes. I don’t particularly like it for werewolves, but yes.

        Bearing in mind that pretty much every conceivable step in the process is contested, laying the groundwork is expensive, and werewolves are generally better-equipped to recognize when they're being subjected to spiritual influence, yes, werewolves are not specifically immune to possession or Claiming.

        What makes idigam with the Forge Empty Wolf Essence-Shaping power particularly terrifying is that they can make an Empty Wolf all in one go at no special cost.

          And also nothing says that the spirit they stuff into a werewolf can't be themselves. Idigam are scary, y'all.

            Like the others have stated, yes - they could. But it would take a very sneaky spirit, and a very unprotected Uratha (like a just changed Ghost Wolf without a hint of a pack around them) not to notice the signs, and rip the offensive spirit a new one.
