The beastmaster closes their eyes and channels nature's bloody struggle for survival. When their eyes reopen, they catch the light and glow red like a dog's. While in this heightened state, they may triangulate the tiniest sounds or smells.


Exert your Mind and spend an Action.

Your senses are enhanced in the following way. Lasts for three hours.

  • 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 automatically know the origin location of any sound you hear, and you can tell which Action caused the sound.

Exert your Mind and spend an Action. This Effect cannot be used unless must have drank blood in the last 12 hours.

You automatically detect all Humans, Undead, and Creatures and Animate beings with flowing blood within 300 feet of you for the next hour. This includes any who come within range during the duration. You have a sense of how many valid targets are nearby, as well as their distance and direction.

If no Humans, Undead, and Creatures or Animate beings with flowing blood targets are within 300 feet of you, and then one enters range, you automatically detect it, even if this Effect is not active.

Possession of this Power grants the following Trauma at all times: Can not enter a domestic house without someone inside inviting him in without succeeding on a self-control roll.

If you succeed, you create a barrier around yourself, which absorbs the next Outcome + 4 Damage. The Damage reduction from the barrier is applied before Armor. You may only have 1 active barrier at a time.

The barrier will fall after two hours, or if it absorbs the full amount of Damage. When a barrier falls, you cannot use this Effect again for a minimum of 2 Rounds.

After Angel had an experience of attempting to drink olive oil to "bulk up" as a replacement for other sources of calories, a distinctive feeling came over her; a clear switch presented itself in her head to exchange the calories she took in exchange for temporary gains. She also discovered that the switch only presents itself after taking 1200 or more calories, the amount of calories needed by the transformed body for a dietary snack.

Exert your Mind and spend a Quick Action to activate. You must use up 1200 calories of food 5 minutes prior to transformation in order to activate this Effect.

You transform into Were-Hyena for 30 minutes. You have access to all of your Powers while you are Were-Hyena, and you can use your equipment. Your Battle Scars, Injuries, and physical Liabilities are carried over between forms. While transformed, your Attributes are the same.

Your alternate form is its own deadly weapon. Unarmed attacks made in your alternate form deal +3 Bonus Damage (instead of the typical -2).

You do not suffer any Penalty while in your Alternate Form.

After this Effect ends, you cannot move quicker than a walk (15 feet per Round) for one minute and suffer a -1 dice penalty for an hour.

You are incapable of fine object manipulation while transformed and can only hold or grasp things in a crude, clumsy way.

  • Reminder: Bonus Damage from multiple sources does not stack. Instead, the highest Bonus is used.
  • Attribute bonuses from multiple sources do not stack. Instead the highest bonus is used.

You transform into Arctic Fox for one hour or until you choose to end the Effect. You cannot transform into a flying creature. See the Extended System text for stats.

While transformed, you cannot use any equipment (including Artifacts and Consumables), and you do not have access to any of your Powers. Any equipment you are wearing transforms with you.

Injuries and Wound Level are carried over between forms. However, transforming can never kill you; you merely remain Incapacitated until your Injuries are sufficiently healed.

  • Any Encumbrance penalty to your movement still applies, but you do not suffer from any sort of exhaustion.
  • Damage from a collision depends on your speed at the time, as well as what you hit. GM's discretion, but generally moving faster than a car on the freeway and hitting a dense, solid object like a wall or a tree should be lethal. Mundane armor will not apply, but any supernatural forms of protection will.
