    Technically yes, but the Victim suffers the Nightmare, too. I was thinking of a 'Marked as an Outcast' Kind of thing. Weirdness Magnet - shit happens to people when they are around, but they are not affected themselves...

    We got delayed, contagious, and repeating nightmare modifiers. We got blood as a carrier, and planting them in a room beforehand. I don't see why there shouldnt be a way to cast a nightmare 'through' someone else.
    would help loads in isolating that person socially.

    replied to Other Atavism Ideas?
    We need a new Inguma atavism. I thought Hivemind would be a fitting concept:
    Normal gives +Lair to group efforts involving the beast. Effect applies up to LairĂ—5 yards away. Up to Lair people can be integrated into the hivemind. Dicepool is Int+Occult+Lair ( vs. Resolve+ST even if the target is 'willing'). Victim can try and shake it off with resolve + composure. Upon experiencing a breaking point, they are seperated.
    When part of hivemind, weak Telepathic Communication is possible (Think telegraphstyle), and everyone loses their vice and virtue equivalents, Adopting the beast's...

    as always, gret mechanics!
    now we just need to fluff it up.
    regarding damage transfer: would destroyed detached limbs not be drawback enough? (-dext, possibly - str for some time)...

    Ah, I have to admit I didn't see the Integrity breaking point trigger. That is a fair argument and would render my "being undead all the time has little to no drawbacks" point moot. You could pull a Skin Deep and allow Heroes a bonus on Heroic Tracking when interacting with "shaken" people to give it more teeth.

    This and Unbreakable would make the Character immune to anything but supernatural weapons and environmental tilts and the like for measly 2 Satiety. Good thing grenades deal Agg when close enough.

  • Well, but those don't specifically do something different for you if you're a Ravager or a Predator, right?
    The way I understood milo v3, he is looking for something like Hunger-exclusive Merits (e.g. like how some Merits are Invictus Only, e.g. Invested I think it was called).
    A Ravager does not get a 'Hunger-Birthright" or anything like that....

  • Oh, I LOVE the young Nemesis image!

    The SCP one is nice, too. Definitly a Beast with the Ultimate Defense Combo: Unbreakable, Relentless Hunter, Looming Presence, Smashing Currents, Skin Deep.
    What using Skin Deep might look like:


    Eshmaki, possibly using Behold My True Form


    Anakim channeling his Horror with Skin Deep

    Cinder The new LoL-Champion's fluff trailer is exactly what made me open this thread =D Makara Nemesis, is my first instinct.

    Vel'Koz as Ugallu Whisper seems perfect. I like the choice of Atavisms, as Nightmares something like We Know All Your Secrets? And he'd need something along the lines of I Know Your Weakness! Hell, it might act as the exact opposite of You Cannot Kill It, making people take increased damage or have severely reduced Defense. Huhum...

    Primordial newcomer Asura's Wrath is a good point. Definitly has Titanic Blow, Cyclopean Strength and Limb from Limb....

    I Know Your Weakness!

    You cannot match him - everytime you try something, he counters you, as if he'd known exactly what you would do. Why even try? You're just gonna get hurt...

    Normal Effect: The victim loses their Defense when opposing the Beast for a scene, and suffers a -2 penalty on attacking them for fear of being hit.
    High Satiety: The Beast may chose a different person to enjoy the benefits of this Nightmare instead. In addition, each time the victim takes more damage than their Composure, they have to roll Resolve+Composure or suffer Beaten Down.

    Yes, you remember correctly =) Huh. I've heard about Bloodborne doing Cosmic Horror right, but haven't had the chance to try it. If you're praising it like that, I guess I'll have to at least watch a let's play.

    If we were to go by most played champs, I'd nominate Vel'Koz... who would make quite an interesting Whisper (fluff-wise he's out to gather knowledge) or Predator (he does learn by disintergrating things, after all). Namtaru, I guess?
    As ajf115 mentioned, Tahm would be an amazing Beast. Ravenous Maw a must-have Atavism. You Deserve This as one of his Nightmares?...

    Games as inspiration

    So, we had an Anime-inspiration thread, and since I found myself playing some LoL and occasionally thinking "The fluff of this or that Champion would make for a fine Beast" I wanted to open a thread on it.
    What games do you think have quite suitable characters to be portrayed as Beasts? How would you go about that?
    Which games have themes that fit?


    I thought about those things for a while, and found myself thinking that Darksider's War would make a fine Anakim Nemesis. He is completely overpowering, out to punish, and even has a powerful monstrous true...

  • Gordon Ramsay would make an EXCELLENT Ugallu Tyrant.
    Other than that, yeah, I agree with the 'being born different' sentiment, and in my headcannon, it also applies. So there's both Homecoming and Devouring....

    replied to Talassi beasts
    From the top of my head:
    Some possible Talassii horrors would be a spider, a dragon, a faery king or queen, a witch, a cyclops, a troll, an uncanny valley corrupt corporate executive... anything that 'chains you down' in some shape or form.
    As long as imprisonment is a theme, it's fair game.
    Just like a dragon can be Anakim, Eshmaki, Ugallu, Makara, or Namtaru, depending on your focus, themes are more important than just appearance.


    So the key difference between humanoid Inguma and Talassii would be the Inguma looking off in some way, strange, alien. Wrong...

    replied to Other Atavism Ideas?
    I like this concept, despite some overlap with existing Kinship Merits and Atavisms. However, the Normal Effect, I feel, should have a limit on how long he can keep the state up, otherwise there are very few reasons not to spend tremendous amounts of time in this state when necessary. E.g. [Lair] hours feels fair, I think?
    I very much like the Low Satiety drawback, otherwise it'd be too op.
    I'd also think that normal regeneration and healing does not work on a dead body, so x-nay on reducing damage AND healing them with Relentless Hunter. An Irkalla with this and Unbreakable would...

    Another Changeling-inspired one
    Alexa Smith, Inguma Nemesis
    "Don't make promises you cannot keep."
    Alexa Smith is a judge, and her Horror punishes those who do not keep their end of a deal - a match nearly made in heaven, some would say.
    The Horned Man is not easily swayed, and sees right through most attempts to manipulate the truth.
    However, sometimes, when no suitable meal presents itself, Alexa makes do - usually by Feeding a temporary Hunger for Power.
    Drawn to her job due to her inherent desire to help other people and protect people from each...

    Attempt at a Changeling (Gristlegrinder, specifically) inspired Beast.

    Cedric Gordon, Anakim Predator

    Wendigos are famous for their appetite for man-flesh. Some are satisfied by any human flesh, but others desire far more: strong, powerful prey, so that they may take its strength into themselves.
    Cedric Gordon is plagued with the latter appetite.
    After suffering for a very long time, Cedric learned to come to terms with his Horror's needs, accepting his divergence from humanity while doing so. Since to his mind, this state of affairs has been forced upon him...

    Except for the inflicting Anathema part, I like this a lot!
    Instead of Anathema, maybe they can inflict a persistent Condition or something (Abjuration comes to mind)? Inflicting Anathema is pretty much what makes Heroes so special, so unless this Rite would invariably turn the favoured into a Hero, I'd rather see something else. Learning about an Anathema is fine with me, though.

    Maybe disabling the Atavism for the Beast in their physical body only would work for you? So Horror/Merged Beast still have access.
    Anyway, cool addition, especially for the more humanoid Horrors...
