Nosferatu and Protean 4

There's no rule for it, but I would say it's immensely flavorful that they do.

Glacialis- I agree, I will probably use a feral Nosferatu character who is portrayed in Transylvania By Night for my current Dark Ages Chronicle. She has made a lot of wolf ghouls also, she and her pack will most certainly gain the notice of lupines. The question is how (or if) the PC:s will get involved. hehe.gif

The Nosferatu's curse seems tied to their physical form so considering Vicisssitude can't make them pretty, then I don't see why Protean would make them look like a presentable animal. After all they would probably appear as some sort of zombie animal to the other supernaturals due to their lack of heartbeat, breath, and no moisture on their nose.

Necrobump - I was going to ask the same question, just what would a Nossy wolf look like?

Lame or disfigured or a reflection of the deformity they have in normal form?

Flavor-wise, I love the idea of them turning into hideous animals. However, one the uses of Protean 4 is being able to pass as the animal in question. It'd be rather lame for someone to learn the fourth dot of an out-of-clan and not be able to reap its full benefits.

As a house-rule compromise, the rules for raising Appearance via Obfuscate could be adapted. By default, the Nos shifts into a godawful ugly wolf or bat having Appearance zero. She can, while shifting, raise the final Appearance of the animal by one dot for each additional point of blood spent.

I feel like this should only be a mild compensation for the Nos curse interacting with Protean, not a way to become the Prettiest Wolf Ever, so perhaps the Nos should be limited to getting their animal form no better than Appearance 2 or 3.

why not the appearance 0 version of the animal rather than a nossy ugly appearance animal?

Hey, some types of fruit bat are downright cute and even have nice, soft belly fur. Not that I've pet one or anything...
