The Cities of Eternal Fog
Cloak the Gathering
A more powerful manifestation of Cloak of Night, Cloak the Gathering allows the vampire to extend her powers of vanishing from the mind’s eye over others.
Dice Pool: Intelligence + Stealth + Obfuscate
Dramatic failure: The character believes that he and his entourage vanishes from sight, when in fact they do not.
Failure: The characters do not vanish at all.
Success: The characters vanish from sight. Mortal witnesses reconstruct the scene in their memory to justify the characters’ disappearance if successes achieved on the invocation roll exceed their Willpower dots.
Exceptional Success: Five or more successes are rolled and the characters vanish from sight. Check previous for the effect on mortals. Kindred witnesses reconstruct the scene in their memory to justify the characters’ disappearance if successes gained on the invocation roll exceed their Willpower dots.
A vampire can hide one extra individual per dot of Obfuscate she possesses, not counting herself. She may attempt to hide more, but in doing so invokes a penalty to the player’s roll.
While under the effects of this power, each individual must obey the rules of Cloak of Night. That is, anyone who draws attention through loud or brash actions likely becomes visible. If the Discipline user herself becomes visible, the effect fades away utterly, exposing everyone involved.
Vampires under the effects of Cloak the Gathering can see each other, but if an individual ever leaves the sight of the vampire extending “invisibility,” the power ceases for him. He becomes visible while the rest of the characters remain hidden.
+1 Character is with only those to whom she extends this power when she activates it.
— Characters vanish before a single witness.
-1 Each witness after the first present when a character invokes the power.
-1 Each person Obfuscated beyond the number equal to the character’s level of Obfuscate, not counting the character herself.
