Back to the Wall "AH GOD!! HOW DO WE STOP IT!!!" *gibber*

1
Requires Seasoned
The power to temporarily transform into a Frenzied Ghoul.
Used by Edgar Stokes, Created by Strazhari.
(While you are a Frenzied Ghoul, you are obviously transformed and unusual. )

While Frenzied, Edgar erupts into sudden, terrible violence. His eyes blaze with an orange light, talons lengthen slightly, & tongue lolls wildly from his mouth.

Edgar is a Survivor first & foremost. If cornered, his fear & rage can send him into a berserk frenzy, becoming a slavering, gibbering creature until he gathers himself again. In this time, he suffers a severe "Fight or Flight" response, losing the ability to speak coherently or manipulate fine objects.


This Effect activates whenever if he fails a Limit check or rendered unconscious. It does not require an Action or Exertion.

You transform into a Frenzied Ghoul for 3 minutes. You have access to all of your Powers while you are a Frenzied Ghoul, and you can use your equipment. The Injuries and Battle Scars of your Alternate Form and your true form are tracked separately. While transformed, your Attributes are the same.

If you are restricted, restrained, dazed, sleepy, or stunned, you may activate this Effect to break free or end the negative effect. You cannot free yourself by transforming more than once a minute.

Whenever you enter Combat, roll Mind, Difficulty 7. If you fail, you cannot choose which targets to attack.

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

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