  • Changes to Blood Potency rules: increases in the values of Blood Surge and Bane Severity.
  • Compulsions can stem from Messy Criticals as well as Bestial Failures, creating more opportunities for them to come into play.
  • Dice test changes: Storytellers are encouraged to let players count half their dice pool as regular successes to disincentivize rerolls to guarantee easy tests or avoid complications for Hunger; but also to conceal the exact difficulty levels of tests.
  • Reining in the effects of Lingering Kiss ability for Presence.
