Return of the Expanded Powers & Taints

November 10, 2011

This is yet another in my rather extensive series of expanded powers & taints for possessed characters in Werewolf: the Apocalypse. This time, I have converted a number of the Kami powers found in the first edition Werewolf Storyteller’s Handbook. Now that this series has come to this point, I am also in process of compiling all of my expanded powers & taints to a single document, which I will make available at this blog. Watch this space. 🙂


Possessed Characters, Consecration and Totems

September 29, 2011

Possessed: a Player’s Guide gives very general rules for the Background: Consecrated but some intriguing possibilities. In its section on Kami, it mentions that maybe a Kami Consecrated to a Totem avatar might gain the same benefit for their consecration that a Garou might from a pack totem.

This needed some further exploration. (more…)

Yet More Expanded Powers & Taints

July 20, 2011

Yup. More of them. You know that you love me. I love you.

This time I’m assigning point costs to the powers found in a few other oWoD books. In this case, Subsidiaries: A Guide to Pentex, Dragons of the East, Kindred of the East and Werewolf: the Wild West. None of these really need any updating, so I’m not going to give the full details of these powers in this post.

At the bottom of this post, I’m also providing a couple of new Taints, mostly inspired by or lifted from Flaws found in Mage: the Ascension Revised. (more…)

Expanded Powers &Taints: Wet & Wild Edition

July 7, 2011

As a follow up to my last post, here’s a bit more of what I’ve got for you with regards to expanded Powers & Taints for Possessed characters in the oWoD. Last time I gave point costs and some slight updates to the Fomor powers found in the ancient supplement Monkeywrench! Pentex. Today I’m giving the Fomor powers found in World of Darkness: Blood-Dimmed Tides the same treatment and sharing a couple more of my own creations (get BDT – it’s pretty nifty). In cases where there is an updated version of a power found in BDT that is not sufficiently distinct to allow separate entries, this will be noted and the version in Possessed will take precedence. Who loves ya, baby? (more…)

Expanded Powers and Taints

July 5, 2011

Okay, so anybody that’s read my blog, like, ever, is well aware that I’m a fan of the Possessed character type for Werewolf: the Apocalypse. I’ve never been quite satisfied with the depth and breadth of the lists of powers but I’ve long felt that the Taints list in particular needs work.

Well, perhaps I had best back up a second with regards to the Powers list. Possessed characters, by way of the Power: Spirit Gift, have theoretical access to any and every Gift that exists anywhere in any book published for any Changing Breed in any Werewolf: the Apocalypse book, and that Gift can be of any Rank besides. Or at least any Gift that you can convince your ST will fit the sort of spirit that is possessing your character and the creature’s purpose. Yes, that’s breadth and depth galore for you. However, there are a lot of abilities that make sense to me for a Possessed character to have, yet don’t seem to match any Gift or preexisting Power.

So I’ve been rolling my own for quite some time now, because that’s how I roll. Most but not all of the new powers listed here were created while I was working on my Warhammer: Dark Fantasy project. Also, I’ve assigned points costs to some preexisting Powers that appeared in various books for NPC use but weren’t given costs at their time of publishing. If you think that the point costs of any of these powers ought to be adjusted, by all means provide input. 🙂 Oh, and more to come later. (more…)
