Vampyre's Gaze “His character was dreadfully vicious, for that the possession of irresistible powers of seduction, rendered his licentious habits more dangerous to society.” ― John William Polidori, The Vampyre; a Tale

Requires Seasoned
The power to temporarily incapacitate your enemies.
Used by Benny Scappetti, Created by BobDylan530.

Benny can entrance a target into a lustful stupor by looking deep into their eyes and dominating their mind with his own. His eyes have paid the price for power; instead of whites, his irises are now surrounded by a blood red color, which becomes more or less intense depending on how recently he has fed.


Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate. Select a Animate target within 20 feet. This Effect cannot be used unless you make direct eye contact with the target. Roll Charisma + Alertness at Difficulty 7.

If you succeed, the target will suffer a dice penalty equal to the Outcome for as long as you maintain Concentration; if you stop or are interrupted, the Effect will end. Dice pools may be reduced all the way down to 0 by this penalty.

  • If a character has a dice pool reduced to 0, they cannot attempt that action.
  • If a character Exerts their Mind to ignore penalty, it also ignores penalty from this Effect.

Wolfgang has embraced the darkness of their heritage, and rather than flee to the martial arts of the normal world he has studied it, embraced it, and under the tutelage of his master he ascended beyond any holder of the art, and in doing so. Killed his master and the entire dojo that he had learned the art in, ensuring that no other would ever rise from its ranks to challenge him again.

Afterward he was approached by a strange man wreathed in shadow, who offered him a simple deal. Accept the darkness within himself and nurture it even further, this, he did readily. The darkness coursed through his veins and in doing so his skin was darkened and his eyes turned blood red in recognition of his demonic power, but. The man told him there could be more. All he had to do was prove that he was indeed superior to his brothers way of thinking, though with Fonzie T. Buck dead a new challenger had to be arranged.

Lucas Steel, master of the fist of the gentle wave. Defeat him, and he would have truly risen to become the greatest martial artist.
