An Endowment is a special advantage given to hunters who are members of conspiracies in Hunter: The Vigil. They are used to help hunters within the conspiracy hunt down and kill or capture supernatural creatures. Endowments vary wildly in nature and depend on the origins, motivations, and methods of the conspiracies themselves.
Members of conspiracies are granted Endowments due to a conspiracy's age, influence, technology, or other factors. Compacts would rarely and cells would never be able to access the resources needed to grant them Endowments.
While not as powerful as their older brothers in the various conspiracies, at least some compacts have endowments able to save them when they need it.
