Rank 5 Get of Fenris Gifts

Strength of the Ancestors / Strength of the Einherjar

Rank 5 Get of Fenris Gift
Called Strength of the Einherjar in the non-revised tribebook

This gift allows a Fenrir to call upon his greatest ancestral heroes for assistance. It is only used in dire situations, when the lives of more than one Garou are endangered. Calling on the strength of one’s ancestors allows a Get to increase his physical might, wisdom or even sense acuity substantially, albeit for a limited time. These ancestral heroes come to the aid of a Get only in times of great peril, and punish any Fenrir who attempts to call on them without need. This Gift is taught by an ancestor-spirit.

System: Only Get with at least one dot in the Ancestors Background may learn this Gift. The player spends one Rage point and rolls Charisma + Rituals (difficulty 10); he may subtract one from the difficulty for every dot he has in Ancestors, During the casting of this Gift, he must carve the specific runes of hes ancestors into his flesh. For each success, he may add one dot to any Attribute; these dots may be split among different Attributes, or all applied to the same one.

If the Storyteller believes this Gift has been used inappropriately, his hero-ancestors still give assistance, but then turn on their descendant, permanently removing a number of Attribute dots equal to those they granted.

There is no appeal.

The Good Death

Rank 5 Get of Fenris Gift

No true Get of Fenris fears death – only dying poorly. This Gift is Great Fenris’ final blessing to his children; the Fenrir who activates this Gfit intends to die with her foes’ heartsblood on her claws. The werewolf calls on Great Fenris to aid her and sets herself against her foe. The Fenrir continues fighting long after she should be dead, and doesn’t fall until her enemy (or enemies) dies with her. The avatar of Great Fenris himself teaches this Gift.

System: The Fenrir concentrates for one full turn and spends all her Gnosis in calling for Fenris’ favor. Once the Gift has been activated, the Garou suffers no wound penalties whatsoever, and will not fall until her foe is dead, at which point she dies immediately. This Gift works only if the named enemy is already on the battlefield with the Fenrir; it cannot be used to hunt down an absent enemy. Once the battle is won, an avatar of Fenris descends on the battlefield to devour what’s left of the hero and her worldly possession. For obvious reasons, this Gift can be used only once, most likely when the character is out of all other options. Improper use of this Gift (such as attempting to use the Gift to slay an old rival rather than a “true enemy of Gaia”) angers Fernris, who strikes the unworthy Get dead on the spot.

Horde of Valhalla

Rank 5 Get of Fenris Gift

The Garou who uses this Gift must be in good standing with his tribe’s totem, and he must have a great need for aid, for he is asking help of Fenris himself. This Gift — taught by an avatar of Fenris — summons great wolves to come to the Garou’s aid.

System: The player spends as much Rage and/or Gnosis as he wishes and rolls Charisma + Animal Ken. If successful, a number of spirit wolves appear from the Umbra to do battle with the Garou foes. The number of wolves is equal to the number of points spent by the player. The wolves are functionally identical to the wolves of the Great Hunt. They remain for the entire scene.

Fenris’ Bite

Rank 5 Get of Fenris Gift

The Garou’s already vicious bite increases in power terribly, to the point that the Garou can mangle or even sever limbs with a single bite. An avatar of Fenris teaches this Gift.

System: The player spends one Rage point and rolls Strength + Medicine (difficulty of the opponent’s Stamina + 3). The Garou’s next bite attack, if it hits, will mangle and disable one of the target’s limbs, inflicting three automatic, unsoakable, aggravated health levels of damage in addition to any damage already rolled. The limb is rendered useless until the target can regenerate the damage, or permanently in the case of humans and other creatures who do not regenerate. If the player achieves five or more successes on the Strength + Medicine roll, the limb is severed.

Endurance of Heimhall

Rank 5 Get of Fenris Gift

This powerful Gift grants the Garou great endurance and hardiness for a time. This Gift is taught by a Boar-spirit.

System: The Garou spends one Gnosis point and rolls Willpower (difficulty 6). If successful, the Garou’s Stamina rating is doubled for the duration of the scene. This will aid Stamina and Soak rolls.
