NEW DARK INHERITANCE – VAMPIRE
Power costs 1 point of Personality.
Duration: 1d3+CL rounds
Visage: The tommyknocker’s face becomes chiropteran, with ridiculously protruding ears, flattened upturned nose, and jutting snaggle-toothed fangs. Their sunken eyes glow with unholy radiance, and fingers, connected by webbed skin, sharpen to elongated points. Dripping spittle renders them nigh-unintelligible. Attire becomes shrouded in cobwebs writhing with insects and graveworms.
Power: The tommyknocker’s senses heighten to those of an apex
predator. They can see in abject
darkness, and gain a +4 bonus to all visual-, auditory-, olfactory-, and gustatory-related rolls. Furthermore, the
tommyknocker gains a wall-crawling climb speed of 20’, and the ability to make
standing leaps of 15’.
Curse: The tommyknocker becomes malevolently ravenous for the lifeforces of the weak and infirm. They must make a WIL Save of DC 10 each round to avoid assaulting the closest ally / friendliest NPC with the lowest current Hit Point total. A successful attack grapples the victim, doing 1d6 biting damage the first round and 1d4 exsanguination damage each subsequent round until the effect ends. Living targets reduced to 0 Hit Points in this fashion awaken as Vampires after three moonrises with a burning hatred for their tommyknocker sire.
