    The Toymaker
    Polaris Toys was founded by Johanna Wójcik’s grandfather, and specialized in electronic toys, especially software and remote control devices. They were pioneering in walkies-talkies, remote control cars, and were early on the market with affordable drones. She had expected to inherit the company from her father, but the company was purchased in a hostile takeover by several of their more unscrupulous investors. The company’s assets were divided and their coveted patents sold off. Johanna was at her father's bedside as he died, swearing vengeance on those that had stolen...

    RE: The Sniper
    The Sniper escalates. If not stopped, he will reach a point where human victims no longer satisfy him. He is already deadly enough to represent a treat to even hardy supernaturals, given a weapon that can counter supernatural protection moves him up to the next level of dangerous.

    The Thrill Killer
    Cory Michaels was raised in an upper-middle class suburban home, with a stable family life and upper-middle class conservative values. But even at a young age, Cory was prone to rebellion and trouble making. As he grew, mischief escalated...

    The Taxidermist
    From the first time Corben Verril poked a road-killed raccoon with a stick, he has been obsessed with death. As a youth, he would collect the carcasses of dead animals, becoming a self-taught expert at embalming and taxidermy. Already homely and socially anxious, his curious hobbies did not do much to endear him to his classmates, who taunted him cruelly. His preserved specimens became his only friends as he withdrew further away from society.
    The first time he killed, it was an accident. He had become enamored with a young man and stalked him from afar. When he revealed...

    The Sniper
    Samuel Carson was a decorated army sniper who, after being honorably discharged from the military, went into mercenary work when civilian life proved to be far too boring. After an indent in Africa where he survived an encounter with… inexplicable things, he returned home with holes in his mind and holes in his spirit. Now the only thing that quiets his mind and provides any measure of peace and comfort is finding a target in his sights,, and pulling the trigger. At first, he could gain relief by target shooting or hunting game, but now only living, human...

    The Silencer
    Before the diagnosis, Meredith Conway was a gifted alto singer, who took great pride and delight in the power and range of her voice. But a rare degenerative condition slowly destroyed her vocal cords. By the time she was in her mid-thirties, her voice had been reduced to a horse whisper. This took a toll on her mind, and she became obsessed with talented singers, torn between admiration, and blistering jealousy. She lives as a recluse, having made enough money during her career to live comfortably. When she can no longer bear the strain, she ventures out, only finding relief...

    Sawtooth Charlie
    The man they call Sawtooth Charlie once worked as a foreman in a Canadian lumber camp. He had a reputation as a tough-but-fair man who enjoyed strong booze, but never let it get in the way of his work. He had the respect of most of his workers, but not all. After a night of drinking, he was confronted by a group of disgruntled employees, and what began as a heated argument quickly escalated to violence, with Charlie being struck in the head with an ax and seemingly falling dead. The men quickly staged an accident, hoping that by the time the body was...

    RE: Werewolf Aging

    To the best of my recollection, I don't think 2nd edition has weighed in on the topic. However, the 1st edition book Blood of the Wolf dedicates an entire section to the topic, and there is no reason to think it wouldn't still hold true.

    Also, high primal urge can further slow the process.

    The Road Monster
    “The Road Monster” has been terrorizing back roads and lonely stretches of highway for years. Survivors recall being forced off the road by a large, rusted truck with blinding lights and seemingly driven by a maniac. Some get away with just a dreadful fright. Others suffer fatal collisions or are run down like dogs. The owner of the vehicle is a man named John Gibson (most locals just call him “Gib”). Always a loner and an outsider, he keeps largely to himself, rarely venturing away from the property he inherited from his deceased parents. He has turned the land...

    RE: The Network
    I have used Network in a few storylines as a compact of Slashers that the PCs were trying to dismantle. Several of the Slashers presented here were developed for that campaign. I especially had fun with the Gourmet as an evil cannibalistic Anthony Bourdain! I also featured Dark Father, Kill Doll and Rictus Grin as the primary antagonists.

    RE: The Revenant
    I started with a Slasher version of "The Crow", who was less discriminating in the targets of his vengeance. I left his bane open ended so that anyone using him could fill in the blanks. If I...

    Rictus Grin
    The killer known as “Rictus Grin” appeared first on cryptic video clips posted on internet and dark web forums dedicated to true crime and serial killers. The videos depict a figure wearing a grinning mask, often creeping out of closets or looming over people while they sleep. The authenticity of the clips became a matter of debate and many are still certain the clips are to promote an upcoming horror film of some sort. Some of the videos leaked to the local police and FBI, who discovered that the details of the clips matched with several unsolved murder cases. Since then,...

    Re: The Poisoner
    Glad you like her! I wanted to have a Slasher that wasn't much of a direct combat threat. Even a moderately combat capable character can probably take her down. I would use her as an NPC the players don't discover is a Slasher until much, much too late.

    Re: Slasher Mementos
    While I like the idea of bygones, vessels, and other kinds of magical objects ending up in a Slasher's hands, the vast majority of such objects would probably be Mementos. Slashers are beings so seeped in death and pain it eventually warps them into something inhuman. Their weapons,...

    The Relic Hunter
    Cordelia Martin is driven by a fascination with the strange and obscure. Raised in the antiques business, she has a fine eye for quality and value. Over the years, she has discovered that certain objects carried more esoteric properties, many of which could be considered dangerous or malevolent. She became obsessed with obtaining such objects. At first, she was made a point to secure items before they could cause further harm. Perhaps it was the result of too many violent confrontations over a choice artifact, or perhaps a corrupting influence of the artifacts themselves,...

    The Poisoner
    Mariko Tanaka first learned about poison from her mother, when she used doses of anti-freeze to slowly poison her abusive husband, teaching her at an early age that murder is an acceptable solution to her problems. She grew into a lovely young woman who excelled at school, and demonstrated a particular knack for chemistry. While she displays an interest in true crime and other macabre topics, few would suspect that she routinely “field tests” any number of poisonous concoctions. At first, she tried to only apply her skills against “those who deserved it”....

    Pigman
    No one goes out to the Old Mason Slaughterhouse anymore. Once it shut down and the employees were laid off, the only people out there are Old Man Mason, his son Bobby, and a bunch of hogs. While never particularly bright, Bobby does his best to take care for his father, the property and their pigs. This includes dealing with trespassers. He has already dealt with nosy teenagers and squatters. Now, with the county looking to foreclose on his father’s property, he is preparing a proper welcome for anyone seeking to take their land.
    Bobby kills in an unrelenting berserk fury,...

    Re: Mister Suit
    Mister Suit was one of my earlier slasher ideas, and I have revised him a few times. I deliberately left his identity unknown so that anyone that uses him can fill in the blanks however they see fit. Personally I portray him as a wealthy executive type that gets his kicks through murder. I do like the idea that mask (or perhaps his iconic suit) become relics that can carry one his murderous ways long after he has finally been taken down.

    Mister Suit
    Mister Suit is a name given to a suspected serial killer by the FBI agents that have been tracking the case for over 15 years. Unlike many such killers, who display obsessive and repetitive behaviors, Mister Suit frequently switches methods and tactics; at different points using blades, guns, strangulation and even explosives to dispatch his victims. Even his choice of victims switches often, as they are merely the medium he uses to challenge the authorities and continue to evade justice. If not for his habit of periodically leaving a witness alive, it is likely his murders would...

    Here is today's set.
    The Marked
    Debra Stroud had lived a good, if mundane life. She was a single mother who struggled to make ends meet for her and her son. She eventually found love and was looking forward to starting a family with her fiance. All of that changed during a weekend camping trip. During that weekend, while hiking through the woods, Debra walked into a clearing and disappeared in a flash of blinding light. She was found three days later and ten miles away, rambling incoherently, naked except for the strange symbols burned into her body. Except for her head, hands, and feet,...

    RE: Fae Chariot
    I gave this some thought today, and came up with two versions of the same basic idea. One is a merit, the other is a Contract. Try them out and see if they work for you.

    Fae Chariot (• to •••••)
    A Fae Chariot is a rarity; a Token that is also a means of transport. The appearance of a Fae Chariot can vary wildly; some appear as relatively mundane vehicles, while others take or the fantastical shapes flying brooms or pumpkin carriages. In the Hedge, the vehicle always appears parked in a convenient and accessible spot. Most fae chariots can’t leave the Hedge,...

    The Kind Fellow
    The Kind Fellow considers what he does to be a higher calling. To those that are in pain and suffer, he frees them from this life to continue on to a better place. He moves from place to place, adopting new names and using false documents to gain employment. He prefers to work in hospitals, retirement homes, and hospices, typically as a nurse, orderly, or even janitor. He ingratiates himself to the patient, subtly convincing them that death is the only way out. He prefers to kill using gentler methods, such as suffocation or poison, but will strangle if necessary. The Kind...

    Kill Doll
    Posie Clarkson had always been fascinated by crime, particularly lurid tales of serial killers and murderous cults. Instead of being figures of revulsion, Posie came to regard such killers as heroes and role models. These dark obsessions became reoccurring motifs in her work as a photographer and film maker. When an acquaintance told her of websites on the so-called “dark web” that streamed snuff footage of actual murder, she was hooked. So much so, the only way to get closer to the action was to make her own content. Now known as “Kill Doll”, she has has become a “murder-streamer”...
