Coup de Grace

Rank 3 Black Furies Gift / Rank 3 Get of Fenris Gift (Camp: Valkyria of Freya)

The Garou studies her foe, looking for the best place to strike. In doing so, she sets herself up to land this devastating attack. An owl-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The player spends one Willpower point and rolls Perception + Brawl (difficulty of the target’s Stamina + Dodge). If successful, the player doubles her damage dice on the Garou’s next successful attack.

Flames of Hestia

Rank 3 Black Furies Gift

By spending one Gnosis point and making a Gnosis roll against difficulty 8, the Fury produces white flames around her hands. These flames purify whatever they touch; cleansing tainted food or water. They will also reduce damage inflicted by radiation, poison, or disease by one level per success. The flames do one level per success in aggravated damage to Banes and fomorii if the Fury scores a successful hit while invoking the Gift during hand-to-hand combat.

Flames of Hestia

Rank 3 Black Furies Gift

The Black Furies revere the holy Wyld places of the world; part of the tribe’s set of tools is the Flames of Hestia Gift, which enables a Black Fury to purify a person, spirit, or object with searing white-hot spiritual flame. The fire coruscates around the Fury’s hands, enabling her to apply the Gift to anything she can touch. This Gift is taught by an avatar of Hestia the teacher.

System: Spend one Gnosis and roll Gnosis with a difficulty of 8. Success enables the Fury to cleanse tainted food or water, or heal damage caused by radiation, poison, or disease at one Health Level per success. The Flames of Hestia last for just one turn; however a Fury can activate the Gift and strike at a foe in the same turn. Flames of Hestia do one level of unsoakable aggravated damage per success on the Gift roll, if used against a Bane or fomor in hand-to-hand combat.

Heart Claw

Rank 3 Black Furies Gift

The Fury breaks one of her claws off in a wound, imbuing it with all of her killing intent. The claw continues to burrow into her opponent’s flesh, and will not stop until it finds his heart. A wasp-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: Upon making a successful claw attack, the player spends one point of Willpower. The burrowing claw inflicts one automatic level of unsoakable lethal damage each subsequent turn until it either kills the target or is dug out of the wound (a Dexterity + Medicine action, difficulty 7, requiring a turn’s full concentration).

Wings of Pegasus

Rank 3 Black Furies Gift

The Fury can sprout majestic wings when in Hispo form, allowing her to fly at will. An avatar of Pegasus teaches this Gift.

System: The player spends a Gnosis point to produce the wings capable of 50 miles per hour (80 kph) flight, which last until dismissed. Fine flying maneuvers require a Dexterity + Athletics roll at a difficulty determined by the Storyteller.

Barring the Will

Rank 3 Black Furies Gift

The Mother’s will is impossible to compromise when she does not wish to yield. She can sacrifice her anger and spirit energies to replenish her strength of purpose. This Gift is taught by a Donkey-spirit.

System: A Mother using this Gift rolls Intelligence + Occult with a target of her own permanent Willpower; she spends one point of temporary rage and one temporary Gnosis, and refills her Willpower pool if she achieves 2 or more successes.

Visceral Agony

Rank 3 Black Furies Gift

The werewolf’s claws change to barbed, wicked talons dripping with black venom. While wounds caused by these claws cause no extra damage, the pain alone they inflict is crippling. A pain-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The player spends a Rage point before the character attacks. Any wound penalties the target suffers as a result of this attack are doubled (i.e., a foe at Wounded would lose four dice). If the target is in frenzy or otherwise resistant to pain, he still suffers normal wound penalties.

Bacchantes’ Rage

Rank 3 Black Furies Gift

When deep in the wilds, the Black Furies can use this Gift to inflict extra damage. Even the toughest Get have walked away with a battle scar due to the effects of this potent Gift — and some couldn’t walk away at all. This Gift is taught by a Wyld-spirit.

System: The Garou spends two Gnosis points to activate the Gift. During combat, she may spend Rage points to deal extra damage after a wounding hit; every point spent causes one additional, unsoakable Health Level of damage.

Winged Delivery

Rank 3 Black Furies

Camp: Sisterhood

While the Sisterhood has a large network of Kinfolk, contacts, smugglers and informants available, at times the most effective means to move an item is to give it to a friendly spirit and have that spriit make the delivery. Using this Gift and some concentration, the character pushes a small item into the Umbra and gives it to an Owl Jaggling, which will deliver the item to a well identified person or location as rapidly as it can travel.

Garou who abuse this Gift to send dangerous items or active weapons (like grenades) into the Umbra – thereby jeopardizing the owl-spirit’s existance – find that the retribution of the spirit world is swift and harsh. This Gift is obviously taught by owl-spirits.

System:  Spend one Gnosis and roll Charisma + Empathy (difficulty the local Gauntlet). On a success, the item enters the Owl Jaggling’s talons in the Umbra, and the Jaggling will deliver it to a clearly defined recipient. A human or Garou recipient must be named and described; a location need only be described, with directions given. The Owl Jaggling travels at roughly 100 miles per hour through the spirit world, and will deposit the item in the immediate vicinity of the target unless the target is somehow protected against the spirit world or prevailing Gauntlet exceeds 7. If either of those conditions prevent delivery, the spirit returns to the Garou at full speed and returns the item without comment.

Song of the Siren

Rank 4 Galliard Gift / Rank 3 Black Furies Gift / Rank 3 Fianna Gift

The sound of the Garou’s voice can entrance anyone who hears it. Typically, the Garou sings or howls while using this Gift, although some modern Glass Walkers have taken to poetry recital. This Gift can make an opponent pause before a fight but can rarely stop a heated combat already in progress. A songbird-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The player rolls Charisma + Performance versus the target’s Willpower and spends one Gnosis point. Enchanted targets cannot perform any actions for a number of turns equal to the number of successes rolled. The audience can spend Willpower to overcome the enchanting effects; to act freely, a listener must spend one point of each of the Galliard’s successes.
