Strike the Air

Rank 4 Children of Gaia Gift / Rank 4 Stargazer

The Garou becomes the ultimate example of passive resistance. She becomes unable to attack an opponent, but she is also unable to be hit, allowing her opponents to exhaust himself in the attempt. A mongoose-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The player spends one Willpower point and rolls Wits + Dodge (difficulty of the opponent’s Willpower). For the duration of the scene, the opponent cannot strike the Garou, no matter how many successes he achieves on the roll. This Gift is canceled immediately if the werewolf attacks his opponent or if anyone else attacks on the Garou’s behalf. This Gift will work on multiple opponents, but the player must spend a point of Willpower and make a new roll for each opponent.

Unicorn’s Grace

Rank 4 Children of Gaia Gift

A Garou with this Gift never loses her poise and rarely loses her temper. Even in the nastiest arguments or the bloodiest combats, Children of Gaia can maintain their cool with this blessing. An avatar of Unicorn teaches her followers this Gift.

System: By spending one Gnosis point, the Garou represses her Rage for an entire scene. No matter how many Rage points the Garou has, humans and animals are unable to detect her supernatural essence. The Garou also cannot frenzy and can spend Rage points only up to a maximum of her Empathy.

Rank 4 Children of Gaia Gift

The Garou can fill a hot heart with the peace of Gaia, even in the midst of battle. An avatar of Unicorn teaches this Gift.

System: The player spends one Gnosis point and rolls Charisma + Expression (difficulty equal to the target’s Willpower). For one turn per success, the target automatically fails all Rage rolls, cannot frenzy, and cannot spend Rage.

Rank 4 Children of Gaia Gift

The touch
of Unicorn’s horn sets evil spirits and poisonous beasts to flight. This Gift enables the Child of Gaia
to mimic Unicorn’s power, driving foul creatures out of water, underbrush, and so on. It is a more
powerful ability of Unicorn’s horn, and Unicorn himself teaches this Gift.


The Garou touches his hand or forehead to the water, into the alleyway, or into whatever area
he suspects of harboring enemies. He then rolls Gnosis, with the difficulty being 4 for ordinary animals such as snakes, 6 for lesser Wyrm creatures (such as fomori), 8 for Wyrm-servitors of strong power (such as Black Spiral Dancers) and 10 for powerful creatures of the Wyrm. For each success, one such creature is forced to abandon its hiding place or nest by the most direct
route possible. If the Wyrm-creatures were using any supernatural means of concealment (such as Gifts or Disciplines), they may make a Willpower test, difficulty of the Garou’s Gnosis, to maintain these powers. They must still physically leave the area, however. Note that this Gift may cause the creatures to attack and is thus best used with care. Serpent-Driving may be used only once per game session.

Uncaught Since the Primal Morn

Rank 4 Children of Gaia Gift

This Gift grants Unicorn’s perfect speed to the Garou, allowing her to outrun virtually any pursuer. An avatar of Unicorn reaches this Gift.

System: The player spends a Gnosis point and rolls Stamina + Athletics (difficulty equals the highest Stamina + Athletics of any pursuer). The Garou is unfailingly faster than her pursuers for one scene per success.

Beast Life

Rank 4 Lupus Gift / Rank 4 Children of Gaia Gift

The werewolf with this Gift can communicate with other wild animals and attract (or even command) them. Domesticated animals will speak with the werewolf, but they have given themselves to the ways of humans and must be persuaded to obey the Garou. Any animal spirit may teach this Gift, although Lion and Bear are most often sought as teachers.

Children of Gaia: Children of Gaia who use this Gift never do so if the animals attracted would come to harm, unless the very heart of a caern is threatened.

System: The player spends on Gnosis point and rolls Charisma + Animal Ken (difficulty 7). The character gains the ability to communicate with all animals automatically. One success can attract specific types of animals within a 10-mile radius, and those that can reach the werewolf in a reasonable amount of time will do so. Each additional success adds 10 miles (two successes indicate a 20-mile radius). All wild animals become friendly to the character. They follow any reasonable request the character makes, and many unreasonable ones as well. A character who uses this Gift to force an animal to sacrifice itself had best pay homage to its spirit or risk angering Gaia. The effect lasts for one scene, but the time may be extended by spending one Gnosis point per extra scene desired.
