Blizzard of Arrows

Rank 4 Black Furies Gift

Camp: Amazons of Diana

The Black Fury who uses this Gift truly shows herself the equal of any man – or machine – on the battlefield. Once Blizzard of Arrows is activated, the Garou deals out nightmarish pain to the hordes that oppose her. Heroes with this Gift might single-handedly have turned cavalry charges, in the days when such things still took place. For today, however, the Fury with this Gift is the perfect ally when faced by hordes of Wyrm-creatures. This Gift is taught by a Porcupine-spirit.

System: Spend a point of Willpower and two points of Rage, and you may take a single arrow shot (at no multi-action penalty) at every at every foe within 100 yards, to a maximum of 20 enemies. Simply roll to hit once, using the sight and range penalties for the hardest to hit foe in range, and apply that number of successes against each enemy, which may soak, dodge, etc, as the Storyteller sees fit.

This Gift is limited by the number of arrows you have on hand: all arrows that you intend to shoot must be someplace that can easily be nocked and shot from (in a quiver on the back or waist, or stuck point-first into the ground in front of you;  lying scattered nearby will not suffice). The bow and arrows may be of modern manufacture, but cannot use any exceptional Weaver-based equipment (such as laser sights or explosive tips) to gain any accuracy or damage boost. However, a fetise bow shooting talen arrows is certainly acceptable.

Calm Before the Storm

Rank 4 Black Furies Gift

The Black Furies are at heart a tribe of contradiction, they both represent the harmony and beauty of the Wyld, but also the spectacular savagery and brutality of the same. Sometimes, they even bring the two forces together, such as with this Gift. It lays a sense of peace and quiet over an area, not an uncomfortable silence but a serene sense of security. It is, naturally, used to prepare an ambush. The moment this peace breaks, these spirits of calm depart quickly and are replace with spirits of anger, storm and pain. Few subjected to this Gift survive the assault that follows. This Gift is taught by a cat-spirit.

System: The Black Fury spends one Gnosis and rolls Charisma + Primal Urge, difficulty 7. A simple success projects a sense of utter safety on a group of no more than ten people. If they expect an ambush, they may roll Perception + Empathy (difficulty 8) in order to sense the sudden change of emotion within their own group. If they obtain more successes than the Black Fury on her Primal Urge roll, they can sense the impending assault and run. Otherwise, the Gift works and the resulting chaos causes the targets to lose one die on each of their rolls for every success the Black Fury initially rolled.

Bolster the True Name

Rank 4 Black Furies Gift

The Crone has no need for a child’s rage, and her wiles are enough to let her survive the day that the Mother’s stalwart nature fails her. She can sacrifice her hatred and will to reinvigorate her spiritual connections. This Gift is taught by a Lune.

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

Body Wrack

Rank 4 Black Furies Gift

The Fury causes a target immense, crippling pain. The Fury needs only point to the target for this Gift to be effective. A pain-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The player spends a Gnosis point and rolls Strength + Medicine (difficulty of the opponent’s Stamina + 3). Each success causes the victim to lose one die from all dice pools as pain wracks her body. The effects last for one scene.

Wasp Talons

Rank 4 Black Furies Gift

The Fury with this talent can fire her claws from her hand like darts. She is incapable of using claw attacks with that hand until her claws regenerate, however. A wasp-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The player spends a Rage point and rolls Dexterity + Brawl to hit. The difficulty is figured as though the character was using a fire-arm; the medium range is 20 yards. Damage is figured normally for a claw-strike. The Garou’s claws take one full turn to regenerate.
