This charm allows the lunar to split their shape into a multitude of bodies, all of the same general form. The lunar could become a group of doves, a pack of cats, or even an enormous swarm of spiders. There are several limitations to this charm, however:

  • The total weight of the animals cannot exceed the Lunar’s weight in his human form. The lunar cannot, for example, become a pack of tyrant lizards using this Charm.
  • All of the animals must remain within a diameter equal to the lunar’s Essence * 10 yards. The Lunar cannot send the animals outside of this area—if they are forcibly removed, they die.
  • The swarm acts as one being for purposes of multiple actions, movement, and so on. Attacking multiple people requires splitting one’s dice pools as normal.
  • Naturally, the form chosen must be one in the lunar’s “library” of forms.

While in swarm form, the Lunar has his normal health level track, but all damage against him is halved after soak. He can perceive everything that any member of the swarm can, and can simultaneously process all the information provided by the members even when they are observing different incidents. The swarm also subtracts two from multiple action penalties (minimum of zero).
