Rank 4 Ahroun Gifts

A list of all Rank 4 Ahroun Auspice Gifts for Werewolf: the Apocalypse, compiled from all source books, using the revised edition of books when available. For Ahroun Gifts of all ranks, see All Ahroun Gifts.

Clenched Jaw

Rank 4 Ahroun Gift / Rank 4 Get of Fenris Gift (Camp: Mjolnir’s Thunder) / Rank 4 Red Talon (Kucha Ekundu) Gift

The werewolf with this Gift can bite down with such power that her grip won’t loosen until she chooses to do so; even in death, her jaws bite down. A wolf- or hyena-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: After making a successful bite attack, the player may invoke this Gift by spending a Rage point. For each successive turn she opts to maintain her grip, she makes a bite attack roll (difficulty 3). While foes can make a resisted Strength roll to break the grip (suffering an additional health level of damage in the process of tearing free), the Garou may add half her Willpower to her dice pool.

Stoking Fury’s Furnace

Rank 4 Ahroun Gift

No auspice is as closely tied to their Rage as the Ahroun, who is the master of directing his fury. This Gift — taught by a wolverine-spirit — allows him to channel his Rage even more effectively.

System: The Garou regains one Rage point in any turn that he takes damage, and he does not have to check for frenzy from that specific stimulus (other stimuli induce frenzy checks as normal). In addition, the Garou can spend one Rage point — and only one — per turn without losing any temporary Rage. However, if he spends multiple Rage in any turn, they are marked off as usual.

Full Moon’s Light

Rank 4 Ahroun Gift

The full moon is Luna’s warrior phase, when she searches out her enemies. The Ahroun can call upon her determination in finding her foes, illuminating any who oppose her. Lunes teach this Gift.

System: The player spends one Gnosis point. For the remainder of the scene, anyone within one mile who is working against the Ahroun or her pack emits a soft glow, as though illuminated by moonlight. This Gift can be used to confound powers of stealth or even invisibility, but only if the target is actively attempting to harm, compete with, or otherwise foil the Ahroun or her pack.

Touch of Rage

Rank 4 Ahroun Gift

Using this Gift, an Ahroun can channel a portion of her Rage to another, be the beneficiary Garou, human or animal. In the former case, the effect is fairly mundane, lending an ally strength in combat; in the latter, it grants an awesome and destructive quality to beings that do not normally possess such.

On a social level, this Gift can be a potent source of inspiration (and instigation) as well — while Rage is an intensely visceral and difficult-to-control quality, it also bestows the ability to feel righteous anger at corruption and injustice — a faculty many humans have lost in the quiet apathy of the World of Darkness. A fury-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The Ahroun spends one Willpower, or two if bestowing Rage on a mortal. He then expends a number of temporary Rage points, and the target gains them and may spend them normally. Once any points above the target’s normal maximum Rage (zero for humans) are spent, they are gone for good barring a second use of this Gift.

This Gift cannot grant Rage to mages, ghosts or other kinds of supernatural beings that do not already possess Rage. Spirits already have a Rage Trait, but can receive the temporary points to use to gain extra actions in combat as Garou do.

Body Shift

Rank 4 Homid Gift / Rank 4 Ahroun Gift / Rank 4 Get of Fenris Gift

Garou raised in the shifting maze of human society are well-prepared for the endless adaptations Gaia demands of her protectors. An ancestor-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The Garou can use her shapeshifting to alter her physical Attributes: a dot of Dexterity can be shifted to Strength or Stamina, and so forth. The player rolls Stamina + Primal-Urge (difficulty 9). For each two successes, one physical Attribute dot can be shifted for the rest of the scene.
