This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 5 pages.

Mysterious fires in remote areas herald the emergence of locales long thought lost: mountains springing up over night, condemned buildings squeezing into spaces where none could have possibly fit. And in the dark corners of the world, things are waking up after centuries of sleeping like the dead. But the things that go bump in the night are not the only danger here. Human groups of all stripes are taking notice of the changes. Old orders are reforming and new ones are discovering paths to power. Some supplicate to monsters, committing terrific crimes for token rewards. Others dare to take from the ancients, becoming ravenous beasts with a delicate veneer of civility. There is conspiracy on every street corner, and bloody murder in every alley. If you are to survive ten years in this place, you'll need some help. Take this. +1000 Choice Points Human (0) – You're human, in a world of monsters. Since beings trying to claw their way to the top need to devour their equals to progress, your unassuming self is a secondary target. Only the weakest and sickest horrors will specifically target you, but not all humans are as powerless as Ayakashi and Hitogata assume... Hitogata (200) – You're a former human who has given up your mortality and gained horrifying powers. When you eat raw meat from a freshly killed creature, the mass you take in is instantly utilized to repair your body. Larger wounds require more meat to fully heal. If you are in perfect health when you eat a fresh kill, your body takes on the additional material by growing in size and building muscle. The more size and strength you gain from this ability, the more inhuman your appearance becomes. You are immune to ingested non-magical poison and disease. Ayakashi (200) - You are a newly reformed Ayakashi. You may have a legend going back millennia, but your long sleep has set you back to your barest state. Ayakashi are ageless, immaterial spirits with the potential for great power, but they require a champion to interact with the physical world for them. All your alternate forms are disabled for the duration of this jump. At any time, you may designate one sapient, non-Hitogata and non-Ayakashi being as your Servant. In exchange for a variety of gifts (or blackmail), this individual will serve as your voice and your hands. Chose two themes, one of which must be an animal; examples would be "Wooden Cat" or "Sword Fox." Your personal appearance and your Mark are determined by your theme. You can present yourself entirely as your theme, or you can take on a humanoid form with hints to your true nature. Post-jump, you gain your theme as an alternate form and can switch your ethereal nature on and off. This is a binary option; your whole body is either physical or not. You are still plainly visible while immaterial.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
