Contamination

Cost: 1-2 Character Point / Level

The character is such a creature that it may spread its condition to others (a zombie, werewolf or vampire). The method of spreading the contamination must be determined when the attribute is taken.

For 1 point per level, the contamination is difficult to spread. It may only be spread to a willing, unconscious or otherwise defenseless target.

For 2 points per level, the contamination is easy to spread - a simple bite or scrape by claws may be enough.

The contamination must have a method of being cured and/or delayed. A "Contaminated" character may be granted new Attributes using points that are acquired by additional defects taken from the Contamination. Contaminated characters will retain an appropriate amount of their original personality, depending on the nature of the Contamination (a zombie probably won't remember anything whereas a werewolf, when not transformed, will remember everything). The Contaminating character gains a 1 point bonus per level of Contamination for any Mind Control attempts against a "Contaminated" character.
