Dimenthist Wisdom Pack

Volacrum Wisdom Pack
Volacrum Wisdom allows the user to immerse themselves in the Evocarorum Society of the Dimensions, a group involved in willful Magical mutations and infestation.
- With Volacrum Wisdom, a Character may infect their house (Rental Region, Noble Estate, Clandestine Base or one they are a member of) with Void or Exist Essence to corrupt it.
- With Volacrum Wisdom, a Character may apply Mutations of either Void or Exist Essence, on a willing or restrained target (even without consent, as it is reversable).
- With Volacrum Wisdom, a Character may infest a weapon of Puretek and turn it into a Horrortek (Void) or Maligntek (Exist), which just changes the aesthetics.
- If the Character has invested at least 4 Proficiency Points in Wisdom, this Pack allows them to hijack Void, Exist, Primal and Ordial visions and receive them also.
Soulrend Wisdom Pack
- With Soulrend Wisdom, a Character can transform into their Void or Exist Avatar, a highly mutated and changed version of themselves with Void or Exist Aesthetics.
- This Void or Exist Avatar may have additional (non functional) limbs or body parts, be quadruped, have a tail, have horns, have (non functional) wings, etc.
- This Void or Exist Avatar counts as a disguise, but those who know who the disguise belongs to can identify it, it may never change appearance over time.
- While the Soulrend Transformation is active, the user counts as Occult and will as such trigger Occult detection mechanisms, but not outside of Transformation.
- If the Character already has some form of Soul-Form Transformation (like Vampire Form, or Archon Form), This Pack does nothing until the user is Cured.
