    Conditions

    Conditions are GM-assigned status effects.

    Examples of Conditions include supernatural curses, enchantments, and diseases. Conditions are created by GMs and Playgroup leaders and are not subject to any standardized balance. Therefore, their effects may be altered or ignored outside the Playgroup where they were obtained. For example, lycanthropy may be contagious in one Playgroup, but not another.

    The Illumination
    Gift of Bast A blessing from the Egyptian Cat Goddess Bast has strengthened the Werecats connection with his heritage, allowing him to speak to cats as easily as humans. Does not require exertion when using commune on cats
    Project *******
    Curse of the Moon When the moon is full you take a bestial aspect, during which time all living creatures appear to be Meat for the Beast. You remain in this state until you consume half your weight in raw, dripping flesh or until the sun rises, whichever comes first. You may exert mind to stall the transformation for 1 minute after Moonrise - once complete, replace all Limits with the following Custom Limit - Must Feed: Make a Trauma roll whenever you pass an opportunity to feed. You are particularly drawn to feed off people you know: +2 to Difficulty on Trauma rolls if you know a potential target. When this effect ends, you reduce the level of any injuries sustained by -2 & have no recollection of what occurred in that time

    Circumstances

    Circumstances describe your Contractor's situation in various Playgroups.

    Enemies, wealth, notoriety, status, contacts, fame, and imprisonment are all examples of potential Circumstances.

    Powers

    The Werecat exerts it’s will upon nearby animals to force them to serve it, before relaying a command to them.


    Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate. Select a Creature within 20 feet.

    For the next day, you may issue specific commands to your target which they will be compelled to follow. All other Creatures which are the same species as your target will also be compelled to follow commands that you issue if they are within 20 feet when the command is given.

    Your commands must be relatively simple and within the target’s intellectual grasp. You can make them endanger themselves or otherwise go against their self-preservation instincts. The effects of the command will fade after a day has passed.

    • Your commands must be directly communicated to your target in some way, though this does not require a shared language.
    • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

    The Werecat lets their bestial nature assert itself slightly, allowing them to speak to their fellow beasts unhindered by their mortal self.


    You gain the following benefits at all times.

    You may understand and communicate to Creatures as if you are fluent in a relevant language.

    • Communing with creatures does not grant them intellect but does allow you to converse with them.

    The body of the Werecat produces sharp cracking sounds, as their bones shift and muscles warp, while fur covers them from head to toe and a long, slender tail protrudes from the base of their spine. They become a tall, lean killing machine with razor-sharp claws capable of moving with speed and grace unmatched by mortals, as the Beast within merges with the Werecats human self.


    Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate.

    You transform into A Monstrous Werecat with Red Dragon Scales around the upper torso and neck for 3 hours. You have access to all of your Powers while you are A Monstrous Werecat with Red Dragon Scales around the upper torso and neck, and you can use your equipment. Your Battle Scars, Injuries, and physical Liabilities are carried over between forms. While transformed, your Brawn is increased by 1 and your Dexterity is increased by 1.

    You cannot speak any coherent verbal language and must resort to other means of communication.

    After being bathed in the blood of a Dragon, The Werecats powerful body has been enhanced and is capable of recovering from injury at a rate far greater than that of a human.


    You gain the following benefits at all times.

    Any Injury you receive heals quickly, reducing its Severity by one level each hour, starting once it becomes stabilized. Battle Scars caused by your Injuries are also healed when the Injuries that caused them regenerate. Any Injuries you receive stabilize automatically and do not deteriorate further.

    The Werecats powerful legs are capable of launching it across long distances and allowing it to land with relative ease and grace. In the case that they are in their human form, their legs briefly shift into those of the Werecat form, allowing them to access their incredible leaping abilities.


    Exert your Mind (unless Alternate Form) and spend an Action to activate. Select a Location which is at most 25 feet away horizontally or 5 feet away vertically.

    You jump to the chosen location. If the landing is precarious, the GM may call for a roll to land safely. You will never take fall damage from successfully landing a jump made with this Effect.

    • If you are Encumbered, the maximum range is cut in half. If Encumbrance has reduced your total movement to 0, you cannot activate this Effect.
    • Rolls to land safely will generally be Athletics, but GMs may call for a different roll at their discretion if it makes sense for the specific circumstances.
    • You must be on a surface of some kind in order to activate this effect; it cannot be activated while in mid-air.
    • You may only use this Effect once per round of combat, regardless of any enhancements you have taken.
    • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

    The Werecats senses have been sharpened with the awakening of their heritage, and they are now able to control the enhancement.


    You gain the following benefits at all times.

    Your senses are enhanced in the following way.

    • Smell: Your nose is highly sensitive and can differentiate between scents the way a dog can, as well as recognize things you have smelled before.
    • Hearing: You receive +3 dice on any attempt to detect a creature or locate the source of a sound.

    The Werecats beastly instincts kick in during their transformation, turning them into an extremely deadly close quarters combatant.


    You gain the following benefits as long as as long as Alternate Form is activated and you are engaged in unarmed combat.

    Your unarmed attacks deal +4 Bonus Damage, and Brawn no longer acts as Armor against them. The target's other Armor is fully effective against this damage.

    You also gain the following effects:

    • Armored Fist: You cannot take damage from attacking a dangerous material (such as steel armor, a spiked carapace, or an acidic blob). You may Clash with or Defend against any melee weapons or arrows.

    • Reminder: Bonus Damage stacks with Weapon Damage, but does not stack with any other Bonus Damage. Instead, the highest Bonus Damage is used.
    • Unlike the Ability Brawl, this Effect does not affect small weapons such as knives.

    The Werecat was blessed by the goddess Bast, in exchange for a service rendered, and now the holy power coursing through their body has caused their blood to develop cleansing properties, curing disease, banishing poison, and even breaking curses.


    Take a Severity-1 Injury and spend 15 minutes to activate. Select a Living target within arm's reach.

    You may cure any single disease or poison afflicting your target even if you have not diagnosed or fully understood it. You may cure diseases or poisons even if they are not treatable through modern medicine. During treatment, the malady you are treating does not progress or cause additional damage or other effects.

    You may only use this Effect once per day.

    • Without some sort of diagnostic Effect, “fully diagnosing” a disease or poison will always require a roll of some sort, frequently Intellect + Medicine, but the specific roll and difficulty is at GM’s discretion.
    • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

    The Werecats combination of Draconic blood, divine blessings, and natural feline resilience allows them to withstand what would typically be considered a fatal injury, allowing their regenerative prowess to repair the damage..


    You gain the following benefits at all times.

    If you would take an Injury that would kill you, you don’t die. Instead, you survive in an Incapacitated state. This state lasts for the next hour, at which point you fully return to life.

    If, while you are unconscious, your wound level rises above your rating in Body + Brawn, or if you take an Injury with Severity greater than your rating in Brawn, you die. After you return, the Injury that would have killed you, as well as any Injuries sustained while Incapacitated, are healed. Battle scars obtained during this time remain.

    The Werecats fur and skin toughens in its transformed state, allowing it to shrug off most weaker attacks. After sufficient usage of his abilities, the Werecat has managed to retain the toughened properties of his skin even in his mundane shape, allowing him to resist bullets even without armoured clothing.


    You gain the following benefits at all times.

    You have 5 Armor, which reduces incoming Damage. Armor from multiple sources does not stack.

    Biography

    as a young boy, Alexander spent time hunting with his Grandfather. He had, like most of his Grandfathers side of the family, quite sharp senses, but never quite picked up on the skills necessary to make a living out of it, and as such, ended up going into the army once he (somehow) graduated high school. During his leave, he decided to stay in his Grandfathers old hunting lodge, to relive old memories by taking a hunting trip, but before his first trip received an offer that spoke to something... Primal, inside of him.

    Sickness

    Alex could feel every breath he took rattle his lungs. His body was barely holding together, his healing factor utterly useless in the face of whatever ravaged his insides. He fought to get further from that cursed town, even his mighty Werecat legs struggling to hold him up, vomit and blood still leaking from his massive maw, his body riddled with pain. Each step he took felt heavier than the last, each one bringing him closer to the last, only for the pain to somehow get worse. His blood began to burn, boiling in his veins. Every heartbeat pushed the burning sensation further through his body, further, further, further, reaching from his bloodstained maw to the tip of his tail, fire once more consuming him, flashes of a baby dragon, scared and angry, slipping through his vision, it burned, scorching his insides like nothing else, and he need it out. His great claws tore at his thick hide, forcing their way through to release the blood, to get the burning to stop before it cooked him alive, followed by his massive teeth tearing into the ragged puncture he managed to open. His own blood poured from his arm, pouring down his throat, and it almost seemed to freeze as it left his body, soothing the burning sensation as it went down his massive gullet. As he drained his own blood, the sensation eventually stopped, and with it, the vomiting and bleeding stopped, and his wounds began to heal. Death would not claim Alexander Felidae this day.

    Odd Times

    Alex was back home, home at last. No salty sea water to get ruin his fur and dry out his scales, no sir, just good old dry land, forest, and some rivers. Speaking of rivers, Alex was getting hungry, and it was about the time of day that the forest critters generally stopped by for a drink. Looked like it was time for a hunt.

    As Alex and The Beast merged into one, his form swelling, clothes tensing against his massive frame, Alex felt different. The fur and toughened skin around the area where his foe from the last job had damn near impaled him felt... tougher, to out it plainly. Not just that, it seemed to spread a bit round the area he was wounded. Was it similar to the scales he got after being burned by dragonfire, did his nature as a Werebeast cause him to somehow assimilate the power of other, similar creatures into his own? Or was it just his healing factor, pumping out stronger muscle and whatnot after being quite literally torn apart? No time for that, his beast brain decided, it was time to hunt. The towering werebeast prowled the river, a reasonable distance from its banks, puncing on the occasional unlucky deer that happened by. The flesh tasted just as succulent as ever to his beastial tongue, but he still felt so hungry after all that healing. He needed more food, but his human tracking methods weren't getting enough food anywhere near fast enough. He needed to try and track like a beast.

    Back to Normal(-ish)

    Alex could feel the change his latest job had granted him. It started at the tip of his tail, running up it and into his spine, where it crawled, leaking static shocks throughout his body, up to his eyes and then to the tips of his ears, changing him. He was human again. He could feel the Beast, still, locked in a cage and crammed into the back of his mind, clawing and yowling and roaring to be let out, but Alex, once more, was for all appearances an average human male. It was glorious, being able to walk into town without being wrapped up in bandages, or a ridiculously long scarf, or wearing sunglasses all the damn time. He could just... go to town.

    Alex could feel the origin of the gift, that connection with his goddess, lodged in his soul, letting him switch through the symbol hanging around his neck. Truly, a blessing. Now that he could fit in with the rest of humanity, the first thing to do was, naturally, go to a bar and get absolutely plastered. he'd forgotten how much he liked being around other people! After a few hours, Alex started getting headaches from the Beast rattling its cage, but the alcohol really helped keep it quiet. After a while, Alex noticed that he wasn't quite gettig drunk like he used to, tipsy but not outright drunk, and found that all that power he'd been picking up was actually coming in useful now that he could actually interact with people! Truly a wonder, to not be trapped in the middle of the woods with no one to talk to.
