The favour system is the normal form of currency between Kindred - and is never bucked. Boons increase in value from 1 to 5: Trivial (little effort), Minor (some effort), Major (much effort),
Blood (great effort and/or risk), Life (great effort and risk). Large Boons can be paid off by multiple small ones. Boons owed also count as extra traits in appropriate Social challenge draws.

           Wounded             You are usually bleeding. You may not initiate challenges. If you are challenged, you must risk an extra trait as above. If you win the challenge, your total traits
                               are compared. If your opponent has more traits, they gets a free Retest.
          Incapacitated        You are unconscious for ten minutes and can only be healed by someone with the Medicine ability during this time.
      Torpor (Kindred only)    You enter a ‘coma’ for ‘X’ months (see Humanity). You can also be revived instantly by the Blood of a Kindred three generations lower than yourself.
              Dead             Kindred must receive Aggravated damage to suffer Final Death.

If you have to hunt to obtain more blood, you must tell a referee. Each victim can provide 1-3 traits of blood, but if you take more than 1 trait you harm the victim. You risk breaching the Masquerade and gaining Beast
Traits. Hunting takes 30 minutes per victim. Ventrue take 1 hour to find a victim. Toreador take 15 minutes to find a victim, less 5 minutes for each Performance ability they expend to a minimum of 5 minutes. If you are on
zero Blood you are desperate for blood, although this is controlled. However if there is loose blood around (e.g. someone is bleeding) you enter BLOODLUST FRENZY, attacking the nearest available source of vitae to feed
from (see below).

Method 4)You can be talked out of Frenzy by someone else: They must first make an extended role-playing attempt to do so, before engaging in a Static Social Challenge against you, against three times the number of Beast
Traits you have. If they fail, your attention (almost certainly hostile), will be drawn to them. You may not be talked out of Frenzy by someone if you know that they were involved in provoking your Frenzy.

A character in Frenzy may ignore the effects of all wounds until put into Torpor, but may not heal himself while Frenzying.
A character in Frenzy is neither affected by, nor can he initiate, Social Challenges . i.e. he is immune to Entrancement, but cannot attempt to use Dread Gaze.
Majesty is an effective defence against a frenzying vampire unless the person knows the Majestic person provoked the Frenzy, or the Majestic person is the only possible target.

HUMANITY - if you commit evil acts, you will increasingly succumb to the Beast. Every time you commit a crime that is higher than your current humanity rating you collect thirds of a Beast
equal to the difference in humanity rating, eventually resulting in your character receiving additional Beast Traits. Report your ‘sins’ to a referee and amend your character sheet. Once you have
reached four Beast Traits report to your Storyteller - your character will be monitored, and only a conscious effort will prevent you earning your fifth Beast trait (even without committing
diablerie). Various other problems result by having multiple Beast Traits e.g. the length of time spent in involuntary Torpor is 1, 2, 4, 8, 16 months respectively. The middle column gives
examples of humanity crimes, the right indicates possible behavioural changes to be role played.
