Data Flow

Rank 3 Glass Walker Gift

The Glass Walkers originally developed this Gift as a “remote control” for new electronic devices. As the computer gained importance, this Gift gained a whole new utility. Glass Walkers now use this ability to take control of the data resources that are so important to the world’s economy and to society in general. By focusing her attention on a single computer, a Glass Walker can take control of that machine from across the room. She can order it to erase its memory, alter security clearances, transmit false data or simply print a document. An electrical spirit or the even more complex computer spirits can teach this Gift.

System: A successful Wits + Computer roll (difficulty 7) plus the expenditure of one Gnosis point establishes contact with the computer. As long as the Garou keeps her target in her line of sight, she can maintain contact with the machine. While this Gift allows remote access, the Garou must still make all the appropriate roll to manipulate the computer.

Electroshock

Rank 3 Glass Walkers Gift

The Glass Walkers are the tribe of glass, steel and electricity. This last element can be used to directly damage opponents that the Glass Walker can either touch, or who are touching a conductive material such as metal or water. An electricity-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The player spends a number of Rage points. Each point of Rage spent inflicts three levels of aggravated wounds on the Glass Walkers’s opponents. These levels of damage may be divided among as many opponents as the number of Rage points invested in this Gift. As usual, the character cannot spend more Rage than half of his permanent rating in one turn.

Blank

Rank 5 Ragabash Gift

“Consider it a bio-electrical blackout.” That’s how Pat O’Reidy described this Gift, and it remains the best description there is for it. For a short period, everyone in the room simply goes blank. They still stand upright (unless they were laying down to begin with, but eyes close, senses go dead, and nobody moves. Meanwhile, the Ragabash can move about without being seen, or can take actions they otherwise couldn’t. Any actual attempt to harm someone will break the communal trance, so slitting their throat while they remain unconscious won’t work. But you could certainly pick someone up, put him in the trunk of a car, and take him elsewhere. A spirit of electricity or an electric eel spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The player spends three Rage and rolls Gnosis (difficulty 8). Each success “blanks” every person in a room for one turn. Supernatural creatures (including vampires, mages and imbued hunters) can make a resisted Willpower roll (again, difficulty 8) against the Ragabash’s Gnosis roll. Every extra success the Ragabash gains over his target blanks the victim for one turn.
