I'm new to NWoD, I've played a bit of VTM and VTR, but my group is looking to play Werewolf the forsaken, I've read through the book a bit and the shape-shifting section, but didn't find an answer to this. what happens if say, a werewolf is handcuffed, or chained up, or is buried alive, or in a car... and they transform into gauru form and pack on 250 pounds and grow a few feet? Is there some check to see if whatever is restricting them is destroyed? is it destroyed automatically within reason? if its not reasonable, are they unable to transform? or if say, they are wrapped in chain do they attempt to grow, but the chains win and they just turn into werewolf jelly, squeeze through the links of chain before dying and reverting back to human jelly? I know they destroy clothing, but what if they are wearing some type of rigid tough armor?
I ask because I've got some players who love to try and break any system they take part in... if i say they can break out of chains etc... you can bet they'll run off the rails trying exploit this every chance they get. I can see them huddling in doorways or closets and all transforming at once to try and do structure damage.... stick halfway out a man hole and transform to destroy a road, crap like that.
