The new Infected (HMHVV-H):

Description of virus
HMHVV-H is a mutation of the standard HMHVV-1 virus combined with the swine flu virus (H1N1). Those who become sickened by it suffer from normal flu symptoms with only 1% of the victims transforming into a new form of the Infected. Like the H1N1 virus, the victims are only contagious until symptoms appear. After that period of time they are no longer contagious and cannot spread the disease. There have been some debates as wither the virus itself may be Awakened or if it activates latent metagenes via a gene specific SURGE. However it cannot be denied that the infected take on attributes of creatures of ancient folklore as is consistent with other strains of HMHVV.
There have been two divergent strains of HMHVV-H. One that affects Trolls, Dwarfs and Elves in Norway and one that affects humans in Greece.  Neither strain appears to have any effect on Orks.

New infected types

Gorgonite (Human):
Description: Gorgon’s are humans infected with HMHVV-H. After the symptoms pass their skin starts to turn grey in color and stat to harden into a marble like texture and color. The hair suddenly falls out an a number of snakes (between 2 and 15) erupt from the head. Interestingly enough the type of snake is always venomous, but the actual species will always be of a local viper. In areas where there are no vipers the snakes are always Asps. Gorgons are generally very attractive and alluring, despite their rather horrific appearance.
Powers: Dual Natured, Glamour, Granite Shell (Marble), Petrify, Natural Venom [Moderate, Injection], Fangs [Snakes]
Weaknesses: Allergy (Silver, Severe), Critter Spook, Unusual Hair (Snakes)


Jötunn (Troll):
Description: Jötunn are trolls or troll meta-variants infected with HMHVV-H. They tend to grow shaggy hair all over their bodies and shun hot environments. Their nails grow long and shard and are easily able to rend flesh or steel with ease. They also gain a preternatural ability to heal quickly like the trolls of legend. They were first discovered after an outbreak in Norway and were named after the frost giants of old.
Powers: Natural Weapons (Claws/Bite: Str+1P, AP -1), Regeneration, Climate Adaptation [Arctic], Immunity to Age
Weaknesses: Allergy (Sunlight, Mild), Vulnerability (Fire)

Dvergar (Dwarf):
Description:Dwaves infected with HMHVV-H are called Dvergar. They become hunched creatures of unusual grace and speed. They become even more adapted to living in an underground environment and grow long digging claws that enable them to construct dens and bolt holes with their bare hands. Those that are infected tend to seek out others like them, they can often be found in the company of Goblins, Dvergar or even Ghouls.
Powers: Catlike, Digging claws, Dual Natured
Weaknesses: Allergy (Sunlight, Severe)

Døkkálfar (Elf):

Description: Next to the Gorgons’ the most radical change is to Elves infected with HMHVV-H. Their skin turns jet black and their demeanor becomes as dark as their skin. Their faces elongate and their teeth turn to sharp little points of bone. Their nervous system mutates at a base level and enables them to become faster than a normal human (or elf). They radiate an aura of viciousness and violence that surrounds them like a cloak
Powers: Celerity, Dual Natured, Nasty Vibe, + 1D6 to initiative).
Weaknesses: Allergy (Sunlight, Severe), Impaired (Charisma-3), Striking Skin Pigmentation (Jet Black)

A couple of minor typos in the "troll" section, such as rend fleas (I laughed) and dv and ap of the claws are kinda low. Dv I can understand due to trolls normal strength, but no ap hurts. Maybe base their claws off of the cyberspurs? No other glaring things so far.

Agreed. This looks like a 'training wheels' edition, that you can use to introduce someone to the setting, and then shift over to something like 5E or 4E. Like how D&D 5E is best used as training wheels for D&D 3.X.

Turned in Toxshaman for ¥1 million/4 once.
