Here's the deal, vampires/werewolves weren't going too well, so we decided to remove those and add a little something to spice things up. Your characters can now have powers
How? Just register a new character and pick the power when you fill out the form, follow any instructions there and you're set. Your new character can either gain their power from the eclipse or just say they had it before that.
The first option also works for characters you've regged at Port Mercer before this update.
