Note: This rite has been outlawed for sometime and therefore, will be a rarity.

Level Five

Garou use this rite to punish humans who have offended them, but particularly when they desire the target's town or family to suffer along with him. This rite turns the named offender into a Crinos during the nights of the full moon, but it grants him no control over his anger. During the nights that the target changes, he becomes a rampaging beast. The effects of this ritual last until the second full moon after the rite is completed.

On a few rare occasions, the curse has remained with the target for their natural lives. Most humans cannot endure the memory of becoming a Crinos and go quite mad. Others decide to kill themselves, often by ingesting large amounts of belladonna. Sometimes, the accursed seeks aid from dark powers, such as vampires, infernalists or Black Spiral Dancers, who may unleash him against the sept. When this rite is cast, the target is almost always from among the upper classes.

In order to cast this rite, the Garou must gather some of the subject's blood and clothing. These are then presented before a totem spirit, while the target's offenses against Gaia are declared to the spirit. The totem will then seek out the target during the full moon, and work the change upon him. Many Garou do not like this rite, such as the Children of Gaia, who believe that unleashing an uncontrolled Crinos in the land will only lead to suffering. The Red Talons, on the other hand, find it satisfying to witness the carnage the accused can cause in a town.

This rite becomes outlawed in modern times, after too many instances of the target drawing the Wyrm's attention and gaining aid from its minions. In the Dark Ages, however, it is still popular.

System: The ritemaster must roll Charisma + Rituals with a difficulty equal to the target's Willpower. The number of successes equals the number of nights around the full moon that the accursed must change.
