Jade Court Infected
Jade Court Infected (Supernatural Scale)
Killed by a Jade Court vampire’s feeding, for whatever reason your dying breath was prevented from escaping your body. You have risen again as a Jade Courted Infected. You now have some of their powers and their hunger for Qi Energy. Killing will transform you fully into a vampire. Create your character according to the Pure Mortal mantle of your preference and then add the below conditions and stunts, which operate at Supernatural scale (page 182).
Hungry: [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ]
Mark one of this condition’s five boxes to power vampiric stunts. If you are taken out while Hungry, the consequences could be dire: the GM may determine that you embark on a feeding frenzy, killing nearby mortals. The good news, if any, is that the Hungry track clears immediately.
To otherwise clear Hungry, you must feed: establish an advantage on your target (e.g., Grappled), and then realize a successful attack. Unlike White Court vampires who must feed on a specific type of energy, your feeding on life energy has no such restrictions. Therefore, the subsequent feeding has only two possible degrees of intensity:
- Your victim takes a condition representing physical harm. Clear two boxes for a sticky condition, four for a lasting one.
- Your victim dies. Clear Hungry and, at the next minor milestone, you become a full Jade Court vampire.
In addition to those from your mortal mantle, select one of the three vampiric stunts (Physique, Toughness, Recovery) as detailed for Jade Court vampires.
Cloak of Shadows: Page 159.
You can see perfectly in the dark and are immune to any potential effect of normal or magical darkness. Additionally, once per session, you may declare that you automatically succeed at hiding from any non-magical attempt to spot you, provided you have a nearby shadow to hide in.
A blessed jade carving, typically in the form of an amulet and traditionally in the shape of a yaoguai face can be utilized to balance your personal qi and relieve an infected human’s hunger for life energy. You may use this stunt to eliminate two boxes of Hungry between sessions, but only if sufficient time in meditation and contemplation may be accomplished.
Some chinese sorceror monks have learned to crush blessed jade into a fine powder and utilize it in inks, allowing them to imbue the qi balancing properties of a Jade Amulet into the flesh of the infected in the form of tattoos. This allows the elimination of one additional box of Hungry between sessions, but being made part of the body also permanently reduces the Hungry track by one. Once tattooed, using external Jade Amulets provide no benefit. The tattoos burn out of the flesh if you should become a full Jade Court Vampire.
You may also purchase stunts from your mortal mantle or any of the aforementioned vampiric stunts (Physique, Toughness, Recovery) not selected as a core stunt.
