  • I ran a story where an agricorp was testing a crop additive derived from captured Vitriol to alter soil pH. Seemed like it was working fine, up until the players sparked a Firestorm and the crop uprooted itself to attack the town. There were suggestions in one of the books about Pyros-addled plants and animals (some Greek word starting with a "k", which escapes me), though it broke down to reskinned Pandorans, so it's easy to replicate. That's a potential downside to watering your lawn with the ichor of the divine.

    You could expand the idea a little bit. Osiris was also...

    Huh, for some reason I was reading that as all werewolves. Now I feel silly.

    Unplanned-for violence does break out, though, and the instincts kick in regardless of form. If you're at a protest and things start heading towards violence, how close does the danger have to get before you consider yourself stressed? And a werewolf would have to make a conscious choice to flee or hide to pop out of gauru willingly, which is a hella dangerous choice to make when fighting against something that can withstand that many turns of the war form already. Seems to me kuruth is locked into these rules if swift work is not made.


    That seems to be for non-stressed scenes,...

    How are you handling this in your games? It strikes me as a bit rough to force actions and expenditures on player characters, as well as pushing them into gauru at the first swing of a fist. And can a werewolf who's been pushed up to gauru choose to fall out under these rules (from page 96) when the timer runs out, or do they have to stick with it? Thanks!

  • It's the notion of werewolves hunting on a regular cycle, rather than total loss of control. That is, it's a thematic shout-out to the traditional full moon werewolf attack, rather than a literal implementation of it. A mature pack of Uratha is hunting on a schedule measured in months, up until one hits Primal-Urge 5, anyway.

    And to say it's a conscious decision, that's not entirely true. Once the hunt is due, refusing to hunt becomes a dangerous choice. Werewolves who have struck a balanced Harmony are at risk of spiralling toward the Flesh extreme, making them easier to trigger....

  • Which makes it a Blood Talon affinity. However, if a ST so desired, he could reintroduce the duration bonus to all Auspices without having to rework Perfected Rage.

    I think originally that rule was intended to invoke the full moon mythos, but the Sacred Hunt does that now, and without disadvantaging the Pure....

  • IIRC, you added your Auspice Renown to your duration in gauru in 1e, but that seems to have been dropped.
