能够变形为狼人是赫希恩大帝馈赠给我们的最珍贵的礼物之一,有些传说认为他的力量还创造了世界早期的若干神器(也就是下文所列的那些)。这可以上溯到人们还不会读写的思想贫乏的年代,但是野兽之血已经流淌在被选中的强者体中。

首先:一个野狼头骨雕刻。上古时代,萨满用其在血腥仪式上制造我们血系,据说这给予匍匐在前的参与者巨大压迫感,那些目睹仪式的人都因未知的恐惧而颤栗,除了那些曾经一睹赫希恩天颜之人。

其次:大腿骨 ,和头骨一样精雕细琢,只是来自于其他不知名的动物。在很多古老的兄弟会中也被用作捣药杵,据说这能带来一种自我意识(狼人直觉)上的升华,不管在视觉还是嗅觉上均有裨益,这样猎物就永远不会逃离我们的视线之外。

最后:一只普通的鼓,他的普通外形意味着很容易湮灭于时间的长河中,现在早已失落。就像我们父辈打拍子召唤同伴那样,我们的祖先亦曾用鲜血涂抹鼓面,敲击以召唤狼之亲族并肩作战。

通过这些图腾,我们引导和融聚自己的野兽之力。尽管变成狼人的同时意味着舍弃了人类的魔法,但我们可以为自己注入更加直接的自然能量,通过这些图腾,来发掘在文明侵染之前,早已首次征服世界的能力。

THE TOTEMS OF HIRCINE
Werewolf tales regarding artifacts of Hircine


Among those of us to whom Lord Hircine bestowed his most precious gift ofLycanthropy, there are legends that he also set into the world specific artifacts of his power. They date to a period when men could neither write, nor speak, nor barely think, but the powers of blood of the beast were yet flowing strong among the selected.

The first: a carved skull, of the wolf itself. Used by those ancient shamans in the blood ceremonies that created our lineage, it is said to grant a great presence to those who prostrate themselves before it, such that those who witness their forms cower in a terror unknown except to those who have glimpsed the face of Hircine himself.

The second: a thigh bone, carved as the skull, but from some animal unknown. Used as some form of medicinal wand in the more ancient brotherhood, it was said to grant a kind of heightened awareness, both in sight and smell, such that the prey could never flee too far from our senses.

The third: a simple drum, its mundane appearance meaning it is most likely lost to the mists of long ago time. As our fathers would beat time to summon their brethren from the fields, so too would our forebears in the blood call their allies to them with its pounding.

Through these totems, we channel and focus our energies of the beast. While werewolves give up the powers of magic known to men, we can tap into a more direct natural energy at times, and through these totems, discover the abilities that first tamed the world before wrought civilization sullied it.
