Rank 5 Wendigo Gifts

A list of all Rank 5 Wendigo tribe Gifts for Werewolf: the Apocalypse, compiled from all source books, using the revised edition of books when available. For Wendigo Gifts of all ranks, see All Wendigo Gifts.

Invoke the Spirits of the Storm / Call the Storm

Rank 5 Wendigo Gift / Rank 5 Bunyip Gift / Rank 4 Shadow Lord Gift
The Shadow Lord versions is called Call the Storm

The Garou can summon nearly any weather effect she desires, be it a tornado, fog, blizzard or thunderstorms. An avatar of Wendigo teaches this Gift. An avatar of Rainbow Serpent teaches the Bunyip version.

System: The player spends one Gnosis pint and rolls Willpower (difficulty varies based on how close the desired effect is to the actual weather patterns of the area). The storm covers 10 miles per success. If the Garou summons a thunderstorm, she may spend Gnosis to call lightning down on her enemies (Dexterity + Occult to hit, 10 dice of aggravated damage).

Shadow Lord version: Only thunderstorms may be called and an avatar of Grandfather Thunder teaches this Gift.

Heart of Ice

Rank 5 Wendigo Gift

The Garou can call down the curse of the Wendigo on an enemy. The Garou must whisper the name of the target to the winds; thereafter, the victim’s innards begin turning to ice. An avatar of Wendigo teaches this Gift.

System: The player spends one Gnosis point and rolls Wits + Occult (difficulty of the target’s Willpower). Each success inflicts one level of aggravated, unsoakable damage. This damage accrues slowly, including one health level per turn until all possible damage has been done.

Balance of Wormwood

Rank 5 Wendigo Gift

With this Gift, a character can learn to aid another Garou who has succumbed to the service of the Wyrm, and guard them from the Destroyer’s influence. Because Great Wendigo treasures the purity of his Tribe, he has conferred this Gift upon his children, to give them greater power to continue the fight against the Wyrm. Like a taste of wormwood, which brings clarity to the mind, two Garou join their spirits together beneath the cleansing, eternal winds of Wendigo’s spirit. With this Gift, depending upon each other, they may resist the attraction of the Wyrm that drives werewolves into unspeakable acts and mindless vile savagery. An avatar of Great Wendigo teaches this Gift.

System: The target character must already have fallen into the service of the Wyrm, by walking the Black Spiral or through other means. The Garou using this Gift must spend a point of Gnosis and make a Willpower + Manipulation roll against her target’s Willpower. If she succeeds, the target character may resist the horrific urges that the Wyrm brings for the remainder of the scene. This may be enough to allow the fallen Garou to attempt the long road back to Gaia’s graces, but those who are long fallen or far from Gaia’s grace may need much more than a simple application of this Gift. If the Gifted werewolf fails, her own current frenzy difficulty decreases by one, and she may be unable to avoid falling into the Thrall of the Wyrm.
