Trick Shot

Rank 1 Glass Walker Gift

This Gift, once an acquired taste, has undergone a recent surge in popularity. It allows the Garou to execute brilliant feats of sharpshooting, such as shooting a weapon from an opponent’s hand or firing down the barrel of an enemy’s gun. The Garou cannot use this Gift to harm an opponent directly, however, and he can use Trick Shot only with rifles or pistols. Air-spirits teach this Gift.

System: The player adds the character’s permanent Glory rating to his dice pool when performing a really outlandish shooting trick. Again, this Gift does not allow direct damage to targets (“I’ll shoot him between the eyes!”), but it can be used to injure opponents indirectly. (“I’ll shoot the rope that’s holding the chandelier over his head!”) The effects are permanent.

I Got a Rock

Rank 2 Bone Gnawers Gift

Instead of throwing a weapon to cause greater injury, the werewolf throws projectiles with greater accuracy. This Gift is taught by an air-spirit.

System: Large or unwieldy objects are usually more difficulty to throw than aerodynamic ones; this is reflected by a greater difficulty on the Dexterity + Athletics roll to chuck it. In the turn this Gift is used, the Garou burns one Gnosis. The difficulty to throw an object is then 4, no matter how awkward it is to throw. If the Garou can lift it, he can throw it. The Storyteller may still increase the difficulty because of range or other modifiers, but with this Gift, a motorcycle becomes as aerodynamic as a baseball. Note that a werewolf can’t use Stone-Throwing Devil and I’ve Got a Rock in the same turn (one requires Rage and the other requires Gnosis). Also note that throwing a motorcycle like you’d throw a curve ball or knuckleball shreds the Veil.

Eye of the Storm

Rank 3 Wendigo Gift

The Garou may create a place of calmness even in the midst of a raging blizzard or any other severe weather phenomena. Up to ten people can take shelter within this quiet place, suffering no damage from the fury that surrounds them. This Gift is taught by an air-spirit.

System: The Garou spends a point of Gnosis and rolls Willpower (difficulty 7). The effect of the Gift lasts for the duration of a single storm.

Speed Beyond Thought

Rank 4 Silent Strider Gift

The Garou can run at 10 times his normal land speed. The effects last for up to eight hours, during which the Garou can do nothing but concentrate on running. When the Gift’s effects end, the Garou must eat immediately or face frenzy from hunger. A cheetah- or air-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The player spends one Gnosis point and rolls Stamina + Athletics (difficulty 7) to activate the Gift.
