Thread: PC Awnsheilen

Does anyone have any ideas on PC's becoming awnsheilien? (Will just call
the awn., too hard to type ) I have a pc who wishes to become an awn..
He has planned put what he wants to become, and it incorporates perfectly
into my campaign. He wants to be able to manipulte his body to become like
a t-1000 on the terminator. There was already an awn. like this, Dyabolic,
who was rated as the second most powerful awn. He was defeated by the
Gorgon with the use of his gazes. Dyabolic was immune to all weapons,
magic and the such, because he was able to form his body around the weapon.
Also, he was able to move like a pool of water underneath doors and
through cracks. I understand why he was so bad. The question I have is
how long should it take? Shuld the PC determine what he becomes? In
reading "The Spiders Test", it explains that tal-Quazar just happened to
notice "bumps" begin forming on his back, after a few more bloodthefts, he
was turning into the Spider. He had no idea what was happening, and
eventually, with the gift of immortality, he went insane. How would a DM
regulate the PC slowly losing his character to the way he normally plays
him, to becoming a creature who is not always going to do or think the way
the PC does? Any ideas?

PC's become awnsheghlien (as do all awnsheghlien) only if they have the
Blooform blood ability. Also, it depends on how often the awnsheghlien use
their powers. If they use them a lot, then every use brings the possibility of
a corrupting effect taking place (in my campaign, 51 or greater on 100 die).
And it depends on their strength in that ability (i.e., major, great). Of
course there is what happens after bloodtheft and anytime the PC increases
their bloodline strength. The very act of increasing Azrai's power in the body
has a corrupting effect.
Now, as to how you regulate it... Well, that's up to the DM. If you
want him to turn into a creature like the Diabolyk, then I would suggest slowly
bringing about phase changes. Say, once a domain turn (i.e., first let him
melt every night for about three hours, kind of like Odo on DSN). Then, have
him survive a killing blow by another enemy (in overwhelmed odds). The enemy
sees this awesome power when his sword doesn't pierce the PC and flees in
terror, leaving the PC in awe and wonder at his new power. And then you just
take it from there.
HOwever, I warn you not to let the PC get carried away. Once the
character gets to a certain stage in his metamorphisis, he should be
semi-retired or just plain retired. A PC with the powers of the Diabolyk could
easily unbalance the game. IT would be nearly impossible to kill him, unless
you introduced several more creatures with gaze attacks, or special weapons to
