  • Maybe I misunderstood the rules but it appears to me that if the Beast drops to 0 satiety it will gain the ravenous condition. Which according to p. 320 leads to "Every day that passes without replenishing a dot of Satiety causes her one level of lethal damage. She cannot heal lethal or aggravated damage while Ravenous (though magical healing from a third party works normally)." That would kill the beast over the course of of 1-2 weeks depending how many health dots it has. And while the horror would indeed go of hunting in the dreams it could only do so with a chance die so chances...

  • As HelmsDerp mentioned there is an example about a beast starving in prison in the core book (p. 63 bottom left). The hungers are quite specific and not all can be met in prison. Lets look at some sample characters introduced for the families:
    The first anakim is a judge who feeds from the terror of the accused when they're in his courtroom. Its hard to replicate that in prison.
    The second anakim is a safe-cracker. He also won't be able to feed in prison - although he might well be able to break out as an after-thought.
    The third anakim is simply beats up the wicked. Easy enough...

  • The beast is kind of a tripartite being, the human, the horror, and the Heart of the lair all belong together. The Hero has to destroy one of them and the whole beast dies. So he can kill the beast by either killing the human body, by invading the lair and killing the horror, or by invading the lair and collapsing the heart. Killing the human body risks releasing the beast as an unfettered spirit - which is what I guess you mean with the Horror returns to Lair dimension - but that only happens if the beast was at full satiety.

    Furthermore a less violent hero could starve the beast...

  • In our plays we argued that the destruction of a chamber involves in some kind of logic, usually by doing something inimical given the nature of the chamber/lair as evidenced by the lair traits. Given the fact that the lair is in the primordial dream we ruled that it starts to crumble once its resonance has been sufficiently altered. I think examples will work best to illustrate what I mean:

    We had three attempts so far, two successful and one failure: One chamber was an abandoned suburb (formed from the place where the PC had scored an exceptional success on a nightmare roll) which...

  • Even though the beast was asked to crack the safe, doing so still destroys the idea that the things were ever secure. Sure the owner is happy that he gets his stuff back after he lost his key, but the fact that the beast could get access without the key means that it didn't provide any security to begin with and anyone determined enough could have gotten its content. And as far as I understand the game this realisation that no matter what you do your belongings will never be completely safe would provide ample food for the beast....

  • Does the Auspice of werewolf always correspond to his temperament? To me the core book makes it sound that way in the "Who was he/she before the First Change?" which indicates that the werewolf already exhibited characteristics of his future auspice before the first change. This would mean that no werewolf is struggling with his auspice because it runs counter to her natural temperament e.g. an aggressive and confrontational character finding herself in role of a mediator due to her Elodoth auspice. It would also mean that Mother Luna is fairly benevolent and attentive ensuring that...
