Luna’s Armor

Rank 2 Children of Gaia Gift / Rank 2 Shadow Lord Gift / Rank 2 Silver Fang Gift

The Child of Gaia may call for Luna’s protection in battle. This Gift even allows limited resistance to silver. A Lune teaches this Gift.

System: The Garou concentrates for one full turn, and the player spends a Gnosis point and rolls base Stamina + Survival (difficulty 7). The player may add one die per success to the Garou’s soak pool for the rest of the scene. These bonus dice may also be used to soak silver damage, but only these dice. For example, if the Garou’s Stamina is 4 and the player rolls three successes, the Garou has seven dice to soak non-silver damage and three to soak silver.

Spellbinding Oration

Rank 2 Children of Gaia Gift

Similar to Persuasion (level one Homid), this Gift allows a Child of Gaia to be persuasive when dealing with others. The Garou’s statements will take on an air of extra meaning and credibility. Those hearing him are likely to agree with him. This Gift is taught by a Unicorn spirit.

System: The Garou rolls Charisma + Leadership against a difficulty of 6. If successful, the difficulties of all Social rolls are reduced by two for the remainder of the scene. If the Garou is actively trying to exhort his audience to anything other than combat (in any form), the difficulties of Social rolls are reduced by three. The Garou must orate for at least five minutes. The effects lasts for one scene.

Stinging Blows

Rank 2 Children of Gaia Gift

The Children hate to admit it, but sometimes you can’t negotiate your way to a position of peace. Occasionally, you have to have faith in your own righteousness, and enforce you will upon those who are genuinely acting like children. But it you’re going to do it, at least you can make your claim as strongly as possible and prevent unnecessary damage. This Gift is taught by a wasp spirit.

System: The Child of Gaia spends one Rage. For the rest of the scene, her attacks are so painful that anyone struck by her immediately ignores any other foes he may be facing and attack the Child (Willpower roll, difficulty 9 to resist). Usually this Gift is employed to break apart two foes who otherwise couldn’t be. It’s a risky gambit, but sometimes effective.

Unicorn’s Arsenal

Rank 2 Children of Gaia Gift

The werewolf’s claws and fangs become dazzling and pearlescent, shining with an inner multihued glory. Those wounded by these natural weapons lose the will to fight. An avatar of Unicorn teaches this Gift.

System: The player spends one Gnosis point to initiate the transformation. Any opponent bearing a wound delivered by the Unicorn’s Arsenal loses two dice from all attack rolls until the wound has healed.

Grandmother’s Touch

Rank 2 Children of Gaia Gift

This Gift heals as does Mother’s Touch, but can heal the user of the Gift. This Gift cannot heal spirits or the undead. A unicorn-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: 

The player spends a Gnosis point and rolls Intelligence + Medicine (difficulty of the wounded individual’s Rage, or 6 for non-Garou). Each success heals one health level, and the Child may heal Battle Scars as well with the expenditure of an additional Gnosis point, as long as the Battle Scar was received in the same scene.

Calm

Rank 2 Children of Gaia Gift

This Gift imparts the secret of quelling the anger in others. A unicorn-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The player spends one Gnosis point and rolls Charisma + Empathy (difficulty of the target’s Willpower). Each success removes one of the target’s Rage point, which may be regained normally. If used on a creature that has the capacity to frenzy but does not possess Rage (vampires, some fomori), the Gift cancels the frenzy if the player scores more successes than the target’s Willpower.

Mule’s Bane

Rank 2 Children of Gaia Gift

This metis-specific Gift allows a metis to lash out at others by visiting his enemies with his own deformity. Mule-spirits teach this Gift.

System: The player spends one Gnosis point and rolls Dexterity + Expression to “throw” the metis deformity; the difficulty is the opponent’s Willpower. The enemy gains the metis’ deformity for one turn per success, subject to Storyteller approval. If the metis botches, his own deformity becomes worse in some fashion for the remainder of the scene.

Para Bellum

Rank 2 Children of Gaia Gift

Though the Children love life, spring, and all that is good of Gaia, they aren’t pacifists; they always stand ready to protect their Mother. The werewolf’s Rage bursts forth in a torrent when another breaks the peace she so cherishes. A bear-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: This Gift may only be used at the beginning of a battle that was not initiated by the Garou, her pack, or her allies. The player spends one point of Rage; for the rest of the scene, the character enjoys one additional dot of Strength and Dexterity when attacking the enemy who fired the first shot of the battle, or any character that has inflicted an injury on a member of the Child’s pack during the scene.

Domestic Seeming

Rank 2 Children of Gaia Gift

Unicorn does not want humans to fear her children, even the lupus. Many lupus Children of Gaia learn this Gift in the interest of walking comfortably among humans. By using this Gift, a werewolf in Lupus form convinces observers that they see a dog, not a wolf. Ordinary humans look at the wolf and think “husky,” “malamute” or some other similar breed of dog. Even other supernatural beings (save spirits) can be fooled by the Gift, seeing what they expect to see rather than the truth. This Gift is taught by any spirit of peace.

System: 

The player spends a Willpower point and rolls Manipulation + Animal Ken; the usual Manipulation penalties for Lupus form do not apply for the purposes of this Gift. If the player fails the roll, any observer can tell they’re looking at a wolf with a successful Perception + Animal Ken roll. If the player gains any successes, human observers cannot penetrate the disguise; supernatural creatures may make a Perception + Animal Ken (difficulty 7) opposed by the player’s roll to penetrate the illusion. Spirits of the Middle Umbra are not affected by the Gift at all; they recognize the werewolf as one of Gaia’s warriors as usual. The Gift’s effects last for a scene, or until the werewolf changes form.
