Stroking the Demon's Fury

Stoking the Demon’s Fury, lvl 3

The Po is the curse of the Wan Kuei. Though they have learned to draw strength from it, it is unfortunately quite lazy. Those vampires dependent on the Demon Arts are at the mercy of the po, as its erratic rhythms dictate when they may use these disciplines. This rite was developed as a way to speed the Demon’s often agonizingly slow return to power. While far from perfect, it is better than waiting day after day for the po’s power to return.

System:
The vampire meditates for three hours, prodding the demon and focusing the Hun’s own righteous anger. At the end, the player makes a Stamina + Meditation roll, difficulty 9. If it is successful, the vampire may convert any number of points of temporary willpower into Demon Chi, so long as the amount converted is not greater than his meditation rating and does not Demon Chi exceed his po rating. The po then receives an immediate roll for shadow soul. If more temporary Willpower is converted than the vampire has Hun, the difficulty of the po’s shadow soul is reduced by one per additional point.
