Create Element

Rank 1 Metis Gift

The metis has the power to create a small amount of one of the four basic elements — fire, air, earth or water. In this way, she can replenish the air supply in an airtight room, make a rock to throw at someone, create a fire without matches or wood, or even fill a bathtub without any faucet or pipes. The metis cannot create specialized forms of any element. Precious metals (especially silver), lethal gases and acid are beyond his reach. This Gift creates only natural air, earth, fire and water. Elementals teach this Gift.

System: The werewolf’s player spends one Gnosis point and rolls Gnosis. Each success allows the character to create approximately one cubic foot of the desired element, to a maximum weight of 100 lbs, anywhere he can see within 60 feet. The element remains in existence until used up (breathed in the case of air or burned up in the case of fire without any fuel to keep it going). The flames created with this Gift are genuinely hot, but they are no substitute for a flame-thrower. They inflict one health level of damage per success, to a maximum of three health levels of damage.

Call Elemental

Rank 4 Uktena Gift / Rank 4 White Howler Gift

The Garou is able to call one of the four classic elementals to his aid (earth, air, fire or water). An elemental teaches this Gift.

System: The player spends one Gnosis point and rolls Gnosis (difficulty of the area’s Gauntlet). She must then roll Manipulation + Occult (difficulty 7) to make the elemental look favorably upon the Garou. The elemental vanishes at the end of the scene.

Elemental Gift

Rank 5 Lupus Gift

The werewolf calls upon the primal force of Gaia Herself, thereby commanding the spirits of the elements to rise up, undulate forward and even engulf foes. This Gift summons an elemental spirit, not merely the raw matter of the elements, but the primal spirits possessing power enough to challenge even something as powerful as a Nexus Crawler. The elementals grant this Gift.

System: The player spends one Gnosis point and rolls Charisma + Occult (difficulty 7). If successful, he calls an elemental who grants him the ability to control a large volume of air, earth, water or fire (in any of their forms) that is approximately 20′ by 20′ per success. The effect lasts for one scene or until the elemental leaves or is destroyed.

Spirit Vessel

Rank 5 Theurge Gift

One of the best kept secrets of the Theurge elders is the ability to channel a spirit. For a short time, Garou and spirit become one creature with the abilities of both. Usually, the Garou remains in control, adding the spirit’s Charms to her repertoire — but sometimes things go awry. Elementals, especially fire elementals, understand the workings of this Gift. Banes can also teach this Gift — but at a dangerous cost.

System: The player rolls her character’s Gnosis and spends a Gnosis point to activate the Gift. The Rite of Summoning chart determines the difficulty of this Gift. Every success allows the Garou to use one of the spirit’s Charms for up to one scene. A botch on the roll indicates the Garou accidentally channels a Bane that goes on to turn the Theurge against her friends.
