One more thing—it’s rare a manitou
Harrows an Extra� Don’t bother dealing
cards for those folks� On the rare occasion
a manitou can do a lot of damage with an
Extra’s rotting corpse, just assume it goes
ahead and hops on that gory gravy train�

HitCHHiker froM Hell
Now that you’ve saddled one of your

heroes with a manitou, what do you do with
him? For the most part, just let the hero go
on as he did before he died� Manitous don’t
generally interfere in a hero’s day to day life�
It’s just not interested in whether he orders
whiskey or beer, for example� That said, if
a manitou sees an opportunity to spread a
little fear around, it’ll jump on it faster than
you can say “shiny new flesh puppet�”

Just remember a manitou won’t knowingly
endanger its host, because if a Harrowed
dies, the manitou dies along with him�

Once the manitou decides it’s time to
come out and play, here’s how you do it� First,
you have to ante up a Benny� Once you’ve
paid the piper from Hell, tell the hero to
make a Spirit roll opposed by the manitou’s
Spirit (a manitou’s Spirit is always one die
type greater than the Harrowed’s), and make
sure the Harrowed applies his Dominion
modifier to this roll� If the manitou wins,
adjust the hero’s Dominion as described
on page 73� Oh, and the manitou’s in charge,
too� The manitou keeps control for 1 hour�
You can spend an additional Benny at the
end of each hour the manitou is in control
to keep the manitou in charge for another
hour�

PlaytiMe
Now that the manitou’s in charge, just

what does he do with the poor waster’s
body? Whatever he wants, Marshal� Just
remember manitous aren’t stupid, and
they’re very conscious of getting caught
and killed for their misdeeds�

That in mind, a manitou’s goal is chaos,
mischief, and fear, but not necessarily death�
They almost never make an outright attack,

instead preferring to rely on dirty tricks
and subtle machinations� But if one of the
Harrowed’s companions is in a precarious
and inescapable position, most manitous
won’t be able to resist taking advantage�

For example, if a mad scientist friend of
the Harrowed’s stands looking over the edge
of a deep pit full of hungry prairie ticks, no
manitou could resist giving the poor fellow
a little shove�

tHe sliPPery sloPe
Once a Harrowed hero starts losing

Dominion, he begins down a slippery slope�
For now, he may just lose control for an
hour or two� However, if the Harrowed’s
Dominion is at –4, the manitou might have
a chance to take permanent control�

Anytime the Harrowed goes to the
Injury Table (and isn’t killed by a shot to
the noggin) when he’s at –4 Dominion, the
manitou may attempt to take permanent
control� This works like the more temporary
process described above, except that if
the Harrowed loses, it’s for keeps� You just
gained a rotten new villain, Marshal!

HarroWed abilities
We mentioned it above in passing, but

it bears repeating: manitous have all the
abilities of their host� If a Harrowed syker
loses Dominion, the manitou gets to take
advantage of his mental powers� The only
exceptions to this are powers of Doomsayers,
Templars, or Toxic Shamans�

That doesn’t mean, however, the hero
can’t use these abilities while he’s in charge�
Despite the demon squirming around inside
his noggin, whatever allows the hero to
manifest these extraordinary abilities still
allows the wasters access to these powers
when his Hellish houseguest is not in the
driver’s seat�

Just as manitous can use a Harrowed’s
abilities, they cannot use any abilities the
Harrowed lacks� A manitou is limited to the
same bag of tricks as the hero he inhabits�

deal in specific locations� Unless noted
otherwise, assume locations found in a
region share the region’s Fear Level�

fear level 0
This is a place where people live in happy

communities complete with freshly painted
houses with white picket fences, the trees
are green, the sky is blue, and folks aren’t
afraid to go out at night� If you find one of
these places these days, let me know�

fear level 1
In these areas, wasters believe monsters

exist, they just haven’t seen any� The sky
is still blue, but if you go out at night, it’s
smart to bring a buddy and some spare
ammo�

fear level 2
No one goes near the creepy old ruins

on top of the hill, and they’ve bricked up
the sewers “just in case�” The land looks
about the same, but the shadows are just a
little bit longer� It’s not really safe to go out
alone at night, but it’s not a death sentence,
either�

fear level 3
Things are starting to get a little weird�

There’s an occasional disappearance, and
probably more than a few weird creatures
live close by (though folks don’t really talk
about it)� Don’t go out at night without a
weapon or a friend� This is the general
prevailing Fear Level in most places these
days�

fear level 4
There are mysterious disappearances,

and when the bodies are found, it’s piece
by piece� The land itself starts to change:
the shadows on the cliffs start to look like
leering faces, or cornrows always seem to
rustle as if something’s hiding within� The
winds of the High Plains might whisper
your name�

Statistics aside, a manitou has a few
more advantages� While the reverse isn’t
true, a manitou can see and hear what the
Harrowed’s does, even when the Harrowed is
in control� This makes it nearly impossible
to fool a manitou into revealing its true
nature�

Even if a clever posse does manage to
trick it somehow, interrogation doesn’t net
much information� Manitous know only that
they served the Reckoners by sowing fear in
the world, and those manitous still in spirit
form harvested it and took it back to the
Hunting Grounds� They don’t know what’s
going on now that the Reckoners have been
banished from the Earth, so they keep on
sowing the seeds of fear and reaping the
whirlwind�

Oh, and manitous aren’t privy to the
schemes of abominations or other manitous,
either� They’re not omnipotent, nor do they
make up some sort of hive mind�

fear levels
Even before the Last War, the Reckoners

and their minions worked to terrorform
the earth to bring about The Reckoning�
Judgment Day was the culmination of
their plans� Where before a servitor or
abomination had to spend months or even
years to raise the Fear Level of an area, the
detonation of a ghost rock bomb created
an instant Deadland� Areas not directly
transformed into a Deadland by a GR bomb
soon found themselves under assault by
the minions of the newly-freed Reckoners�

The Wasted West is a terrifying place for
the average brainer� An area’s Fear Level—a
measure of how scared the local populace
is—actually reflects on the terrain� This, in
turn, inflicts a penalty to all Fear checks
equal to the local Fear Level� Additionally, in
Hell on Earth, the terrain makes life harder,
inflicting the penalty on Survival rolls for
food and water as well� Each region of the
Wasted West has an overall Fear Level, as
noted in their entries in The Wasted West
(page 105)� That said, this can vary a great
