Yes it is. That'll teach me to look at skill ranks before figuring in advantages

Bladewind wrote:One Language at rank one, and double the previous rank at each additional rank... Latin for rank 1, Spanish, Garou for rank 2. If I muffed it, I would imagine I could easily add "wolf." She could understand in human form if not speak it - or she could also speak it, though it would seem really odd.


You're right I got off a line when looked at languages and thought you had it as 3, because I glanced at the rank for equipment on accident.

Bladewind wrote: :idea: Speaking of odd combos above, I was thinking of Alt Powering something off of the Lupine Forms (Or making the Lupine Forms an AP). The notion is "Wolf's Blood" and it would giver her Enhanced Traits. The other alternative I came up with the Wolf's Blood trait (which will be 10-12 points of Enhanced Traits) and then adding the Alternate Form flat extra to that trait to gain the Crinos/ Hispo and Lupus forms. I prefer the first option as it is "cleaner" (to me at least) on the character sheet. The drawback is that some might frown upon having a Morph power as an AP of another power... (The extra point to accomplish this results from taking a point from metamporph - the glabro form might still be possible with the morph, but would not enhance her traits. This would be fun, as she might need to look less human but not get any benefit from the change...).

The whole preceding paragraph depends on how much emphasis is needed to look like other creatures. Does she need morph to look like a wolf or wolfman? Or is that descriptor?


Morph is needed for all shape shifts but I have no problem with you ap-ing it

Went to clean up Honesty's character sheet a little bit (increase Dex to even a few things out) and was reminded of just how conditionally useless the stat is. I think that he's pretty good as is.

Update the character sheet - now with Metamorph and Owl Companion action !!!

Bear in mind, I want to try and keep her in Human form as often as possible.
The Owl is more companion than useful minion (with a few minor exceptions). I just like the flavor and the image from the tribebook...

Wanekia:

Image

Wanekia (Means: Makes life) was taken as a young bride by Pai-ouray (Means: True Arrow), the son of the local shaman. Unfortunately, Wanekia was not only a terrible failure at wifely duties (she spent most of the time with her head in the clouds) she belied her own named by, seemingly, being infertile. Pai-ouray was furious with her and heaped abuse and scorn on the young woman until, sobbing from a particularly savage beating one night, she felt she could survive no longer. She took the fine steel blade Pai-ouray used to skin elk with, and held it in trembling hands as she knelt by her husband's side.
She couldn't bring herself to kill him.
Tossing the knife aside, she ran into the night. It wasn't long until she was lost, and, in fear and sorrow, tried to re-create a ritual she'd seen pai-ouray's father accomplish.
It seemed she did the right thing. The spirit of the Buffalo appeared to her, and told her that she had chosen the right path; the one that did not lead to killing. He would teach her, and watch over her, so long as she continued to do the same.

Blessed by Buffalo - Due to her shamans' ways, Wanekia cannot kill.
Driven - Wanekia believes in the salvation that the Ghost Dance can bring, and thus wishes to help make sure all her people know it and will participate in it.

Made a final adjustment to Wolfman/ Dire Wolf Form as well to Wolf.
Gave the former the Deathly Howl from the GM Kit as an Alt Power of Staredown, and the latter a Call of the Wyld/ Communication power Alt Power of her tracking power in that form.

Just reread the OP.

Noticed a character or two (including mine :( ) not listed in the submissions.
Hope that doesn`t mean we`re out of contention! (Even if it does, or if Shadow doesn`t make it into the game, I had a blast making her - been too long since I visited my Werewolf books...)

(For ease of reference - Stalks-from-Shadow's character sheet.

Honesty carefully pokes at the varmit with a stick, "It ain't breathing, but I don't think it's dead.. yet." he grins, one of those ear to ear 'and around the other side' grins that means trouble with a capital FUN.

This might turn into a really 'interesting' game..

I grew up in midTexas (outside of Waco) and it was very firmly encouraged that I never develop a drawl...

I still wince when I hear someone with a really heavy one. :)
