Rank 2 Get of Fenris Gifts

A list of all Rank 2 Get of Fenris tribe Gifts for Werewolf: the Apocalypse, compiled from all source books, using the revised edition of books when available. For Get of Fenris Gifts of all ranks, see All Get of Fenris Gifts.

Halt the Coward’s Flight / Executioner’s Privilege

Rank 2 Get of Fenris Gift / Rank 2 Shadow Lord (Judges of Doom) Gift
The Judges of Doom version is called Executioner’s Privilege

The Garou may slow a fleeing (not charging) foe, making him easier to catch. A wolf-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The Garou must spend one turn concentrating, and the player rolls Charisma + Intimidation (difficulty of the target’s Willpower). If the roll succeeds, the target’s speed is halved for one scene.

Fangs of the North / Claws of Frozen Death

Rank 2 Get of Fenris Gift / Rank 2 Wendigo Gift
The Wendigo version is called Claws of Frozen Death

Blue smoke rolls off of the werewolf’s claws and teeth, which are transformed into curving daggers of hardened ice. Wounds inflicted with these terrible weapons turn black and fester, all the warmth and life driven out of them. A snow-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The player spends one Gnosis point and rolls Wits + Survival (difficulty 7). The transformation lasts for the rest of the scene, or until banished voluntarily. Any individual wounded by the werewolf’s fangs or claws suffers a –1 penalty for the rest of the scene as chills wrack her body. Additionally, such wounds heal badly; mortals are likely to lose injured limbs as the tissue necrotizes, and beings capable of supernaturally swift healing (such as vampires or Black Spiral Dancers) are unable to heal these wounds for one day per success on the Gift’s activation roll. This Gift can’t be used in Homid, but applies fully to the claws and/or fangs of all other forms.

Wearing the Bear Shirt

Rank 2 Get of Fenris Gift

Fear is for cowards; Rage is for warriors. The Fenrir who learns this Gift hardens himself against fear, even on an instinctual level. This Gift is taught by a bear-spirit.

System: No roll is required; once this Gift is learned, the effects are automatic. The Fenrir who learns this Gift never enters fox frenzy; instead, he enters a berserk frenzy, regardless of the stimuli. In addition, the player can make a Willpower roll to resist any Gifts or other supernatural powers that incite fear, even if a resistance roll is normally not allowed.

Snarl of the Predator

Rank 2 Get of Fenris Gift

The Garou lets out a feral snarl that terrifies opponents and cows them into submission. A wolf-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The player rolls Charisma + Intimidation (difficulty of the opponent’s Wits + 3). Each success subtracts one die from an opponent’s dice pools on the next turn. This Gift takes one full turn to invoke.

Sense Guilt

Rank 2 Get of Fenris Gift

The Hand of Tyr camp specializes in the use and misuse of this Gift. By staring into the eyes of another, the Get can sense whether the target harbors guilt for some past offense. The most experienced Get can even get a feeling for what sort of crime transpired. Unfortunately, a few Get have been known to take advantage of this Gift by “sensing” guilt where none exists or by blackmailing Garou after a successful reading. A crow-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: A successful Perception + Empathy roll (difficulty 8) reveals hidden guilty feelings. One success detects any sense of regret, whereas five successes reveal specific facts concerning the dirty issue.

Troll Skin

Rank 2 Get of Fenris Gift

This Gift allows the Fenrir to draw on the power of earth for protection, just as the legendary trolls and even Jotunn were able to do. When the Get activates this Gift, her skins grow tough and thick, covered with warty knots of hard, armored flesh. This Gift is taught by an earth elemental.

System: The player spends one Gnosis point and rolls Stamina + Primal-Urge (difficulty 7). For each success, the character receives one extra die on her soak roll. These extra soak dice cannot be used to soak silver damage; the Gift lasts for one scene, or until the Get chooses to dismiss it. Troll Skin is alas, quite disconcerting and unpleasantly pungent. While the Gift’s effects last, the difficulty of all Social rolls is increased by 1.

Strength of Purpose

Rank 2 Philodox Gift / Rank 2 Croatan Gift / Rank 2 Get of Fenris Gift (Camp: Fangs of Garm)

Some Garou feel so strongly about their place in the pack, the tribe and the world that they can draw on this resolve in times of need. The Philodox can pull new resolve from his deepest reserves. A wolf-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: Once per scene, the player may roll Stamina + Rituals (difficulty 7). For every two successes, the Philodox recovers one point of Willpower up to her maximum.

Sense of the Prey / Pulse of the Prey

Rank 2 Ragabash Gift / Rank 2 Black Furies Gift / Rank 2 Red Talon Gift / Rank 2 Silent Striders (Camp: Seekers) Gift / Rank 2 Get of Fenris (Camp: Hand of Tyr)
Name changed to Pulse of the Prey in 20th Anniversary Edition

If he knows anything about his prey, the character can track it down as rapidly as he can travel. This unerring sense of direction operates anywhere, and it is useful for tracking spirits through the Umbra as well as finding beings on Earth. A wolf- or dog-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: No roll is required unless the target is hiding actively (intent alone is not enough), in which case a Perception + Enigmas roll is made against a difficulty of the target’s Wits + Stealth. If the target is a spirit, the difficulty is the spirit’s Gnosis.

Beastmind

Rank 2 Red Talon Gift / Rank 2 Get of Fenris Gift (Camp: Glorious Fist of Wotan)

The Garou can reduce the mental faculties of his victim to that of an animal for a short time. An avatar of Griffin teaches this Gift.

System: The player rolls Manipulation + Empathy (difficulty of the target’s Willpower). The effects last for one turn per success, during which the target listens to only his most base instincts and behaves like a wild animal.
