The Chronicle of Ashes
Parent Requiem Clan: Nosferatu
Disciplines: Animalism, Nightmare, Obfuscate, Vigor
Weakness: Nosferatu are truly monstrous to behold, the character incurs a –5 penalty to any Social roll in which physical appearance is relevant (except for attempts to Intimidate). This penalty does not apply to rolls made against other vampires, or to Discipline rolls. In addition, the character is memorable and, depending on how horrifying he looks, might be a walking violation of the Masquerade.
All Nosferatu are repulsive or at the very least uncomfortable to be around. The cause need not be a physical deformity. A palpable aura of menace, a charnel odor or the undeniable manner of a predator is just as compelling as a twisted body. With regard to dice pools based on Presence or Manipulation Attributes in social situations, the 10-again rule does not apply. Additionally, any 1’s that come up on a roll are subtracted from successes. (This latter part of the weakness does not affect dramatic failure rules.) This weakness does not apply to dice pools that involve the Intimidation Skill, or to the Composure Attribute.
