Can you spend willpower on hunger dice?

I am extremely confused. Because on page 122, under Willpower, it says:

Characters may not spend willpower to re-roll Hunger dice

But on page 205, it says:

If the Hunger complication seems too dangerous in the moment, the player can (and should) opt to re-roll by spending Willpower (p. 122), either to get rid of regular 0's to defuse a messy critical or to turn a failed roll into a success in the case of a bestial failure

You use the Willpower to reroll the other, non-Hunger Dice in the pool. To emphasize:

If the Hunger complication seems too dangerous in the moment, the player can (and should) opt to re-roll by spending Willpower (p. 122), either to get rid of regular 10's to defuse a messy critical or to turn a failed roll into a success in the case of a bestial failure.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Okay thank you. Another question. On page 212 there is a table about hunger slaking. First it says Max non-harmful drink 1-2 Below it says harmful drink 1-4 and then that the DC is equal to hunger slaked. Below that it says 5 and it's a dead human. How many can you slake from one human? Also it confuses me with the 2 maximum non-harmful takes a scene and draining a human completely takes only 5 turns? \$\endgroup\$ Jun 29, 2019 at 23:39
