  • Wolf-Blooded Merits

    So I was recently reading the thread about Merits for Pure Wolf-Blooded. I looked at how there was three different Merits for wolf-blooded of each tribal sympathy(?) & I asked "why is there only one wolf-blooded Merit per Forsaken tribal sympathy?" So started my quest to rectify this.
    That said this thread is not for wolf-blooded Merits of Forsaken sympathies, it is for any fanmade/homebrew wolf-blooded Merits that get thought of. So I invite you to add to the thread.

    Skolis-Ur's Blood: Sturdy
    Hikaon-Ur's Blood: Night Vision
    Sagrim-Ur's Blood: Technological Security
    Fenris-Ur's Blood: Silver's Blessing
    Kamduis-Ur's Blood: Ghost Trap

    These Merits are the wolf-blooded Tribal Affiliate Merits that are found in the sourcebook. They have been renamed to help distinguish them from the Tribal Affiliate Merits that I have come up with. Beyond the slight name change there is no real difference & they work just the same way as they do in the sourcebook.

              Wolf's Dynasty, Library
              Prerequisite: Wolf-Blooded, Uratha, or former Wolf-Blooded
              Effect: Your family has been wolf-blooded for a very long time, & has built up a library of lore, which you have perused at some point in your life. Select a subject that is covered by your family's library, you now have greater knowledge on the chosen subject.

              Potential Subjects:
              Alternative Uratha Origins
              "Flavours of Ghost Wolves" (Ghost Wolf Devourers, Ghost Wolf Tyrants, the Mimics, Void Reavers, Zi'ir)
              Historical Uratha
              Human Mythology (Korean, Navajo, Welsh, etc.)
              Human Threats (Lupus et Fidelis, RD-13; Shadow Occultists)
              Interactions with Other Supernaturals
              "Lesser" Shartha
              Prominent Local Spirits
              The Pure
              Spirit Courts
              Spirit Possession
              Uratha Genealogies
              Uratha Myths & Legends

              I feel like this Merit doesn't need a drawback, but if you disagree an idea is that the information isn't necessarily going to be accurate. Misinformation can be very dangerous, though there you should have a chance to notice that the information is incorrect.

                Hathis-Ur’s Blood (••)
                Prerequisites: Wolf-Blooded
                Effect: Unarmed attacks inflicted by the Wolf-Blooded are extraordinarily painful. A successful attack causes the victim to begin suffering wound penalties as if they had received damage in the last three health boxes of their damage track. This can stack up to three times, mimicking the effect of grievous injury, and lasts until the end of the scene. If the victim suffers damage that would naturally cause wound penalties (from the Wolf-Blooded or other sources) those penalties supersede the ones inflicted by the Wolf Blooded and are removed when the damage heals.
