Crocodile’s Cunning

Rank 2 Bunyip Gift

The Bunyip passed into the lore of humans as an aquatic monster. This Gift, learned from crocodile-spirits, allowed the Bunyip to defend their waterholes, swamps and rivers with clever ambushes, or simply to evade pursuers. Crocodile-spirits taught this Gift.

System: The player spends one Gnosis. The character may hold her breath for up to one hour, and gains two dice to any Stealth rolls made while submerged in water or mud.

Tread Sebek’s Back

Rank 2 Silent Strider Gift

When activating this Gift, the Garou calls upon the spirit of Sebek the crocodile to bear her up as she runs across the water. The werewolf can also run across other liquids (a vat of industrial cleaner, sewage, or even lava), but this Gift provides no protection for her feet — any damage is greatly lessened as the harmful substance only comes into contact with a small part of her body, but she must soak it nonetheless. Particularly fast and spiritually attuned Silent Striders claim to have run across seas using this Gift. It is taught by a crocodile-spirit, or that of a crocodile bird.

System: The player spends a Gnosis point and rolls Dexterity + Survival (difficulty 7). Each success allows the character to travel across water as if it were open ground for an hour. In areas inhabited by crocodiles, the difficulty to invoke this Gift drops to 5.
