One Thousand Eyes
- Prerequisite: Metamorphosis (Vampire: the Masquerade, p.271)
With mastery of Protean, an individual vampire becomes many hungry creatures of the night at once. This power grants an additional animal form to the user, or rather, many forms of a single kind. The vampire bursts or melts into a large swarm of small animals acting with one will (such as bats, rats, birds, insects, or snakes, see Vampire: the Masquerade, p.373 or here for example animal stats). This swarm is not only intimidating and hard to kill, but can distract and harry opponents with their sheer numbers.
- Cost: Two Rouse Checks
- Dice Pool:
- System: Same as Shapechange (Vampire: the Masquerade, p.270), except the vampire adds three to their Health tracker, and swarming a target with the weight of numbers results in a two-dice penalty on all their rolls. In physical combat, swarming more than one person is a minor action (Vampire: the Masquerade, p.298) worth two dice each. Remove unmarked Health first when the power ends, which may result in the vampire falling to torpor.
- Duration: One scene unless ended voluntarily before that
Other Credits: Draconis, for helping me settle on the name.
