Spur Claws

Rank 1 Ahroun Gift

Some Garou take the bee as a role model for their cause. The bee is so devoted to her queen that she attacks her enemies with no care to the inevitable fact that she will die in the attack. For those Garou who feel similarly, bee-spirits may teach them how to turn their claws into stingers that stick in their opponents. Such poison as they excrete won’t kill their opponents but neither will it kill the werewolf in question.

System: The player spends one Rage. The next successful claw attack the character makes will bury her claws into the victim, where they stay stuck after they rip from the Ahroun’s fingertips. Until the victim takes the time to pull them out (which takes a full turn) they will suffer +2 difficulty on all actions. However, the Garou’s claws take a full turn to regenerate and can’t be used in that time.

Last Ditch

Rank 1 Glass Walker Gift

Camp: Dies Ultimae

When the chips are down and your back’s to the wall, risks need to be taken. This Gift makes those last choices a little less risky by allowing for some instinctual co-ordination to be taken. A bee or ant-spirit teaches this Gift

System: The Soldier looks toward an ally and spends one point of Gnosis before rolling Intelligence + Primal Urge (difficulty 7). The ally does not need to spend Gnosis or roll, but must also know the Gift. As long as one success is rolled, the players of each character may formulate a detailed plan out of character, which both characters instinctually grasp simply from making eye contact.  Each character adds two bonus dice to his or her next roll, but for the rest of the scene after that they lose two dice from all actions.

Budget Approval Process

Rank 1 Glass Walkers Gift

Camp: Corporate Wolves

As any underpaid and underprivileged office worker will tell you, getting any budget approved involves knowing whom to ask. Those types would find this Gift a blessing, as would many other types. This Gift lets you find the weak point of any social group, which person can be leaned on to get results. It is taught by either an ant- or bee-spirit

System: The player spends one Willpower and rolls Perception + Etiquette (difficulty 5). If successful, the Garou automatically knows which member of a group it would be best to approach to get results in her efforts. The number of success determines how large a group can be scanned. Working out which punk to hit in a street gang to make the rest run would only require one success, working out which guy needs to bribing to bring down an entire corporation would require at least five. The Storyteller also is fully within his rights to suggest that no one person holds all the cards in a group and that the Gift simply won’t work.
