Boons One Kindred’s promise to another is known as a boon. Boons come in a variety of significance, from a trivial boon to a life boon. In some domains, boons operate like credit, in that a vampire must owe a boon for another vampire to extend him a boon; other Kindred must see the individual vampire as trustworthy. In other domains, the opposite is true — the more debts a Kindred owes, the less capable of repaying those boons she is assumed to be. The one universal truth among all domains, however, is that a boon is a boon and there’s no way to get out of it other than to satisfy it or to have it excused by individual to whom it’s owed.
But such shifting debts and allegiances are the trademark of the Camarilla. The Camarilla is unique in that it allows for the open transference of boons among Kindred. So long as all parties agree, a Kindred can name another of the Damned as the recipient of his boon. Alex LeMont, for example, may owe a Toreador a favor while a Malkavian owes him a favor, and if everyone is amenable, LeMont may simply pass the Malkavian’s favor to the Toreador, removing himself from the recursive mire of prestation.

Boon Trivial boon Experience point cost 3 Minor boon 7 Major boon 20 Life boon — Optional System: Liar, Liar A character may choose to falsify the condition of a boon, declaring it either absolved or still intact, whichever is the opposite of the truth. At the Storyteller’s discretion, some clue as to the actual state of the boon may circulate among the gossip networks and private conversations of the Damned.
