November 8, 2011

Here’s the second in my series of taking existing Spirit Charms and turning them into Power for Possessed characters.

Anyhow, here I’m endeavoring to fix that a bit.  (more…)

August 24, 2011

There are a number of different forms of possession that exist in Werewolf: the Apocalypse, and here I will examine and compare each. Due to space concerns we’re not going to examine the other World of Darkness games’ take on the subject (The Mind and Spirit spheres in Mage, Kindred Disciplines, the entire premise of Demon: the Fallen and so on).

The various extant methods of possession, both beneficial and maleficent, and some of their details follow: (more…)
