True Fear

Rank 2 Ahroun Gift / Rank 2 Shadow Lord (Judges of Doom & Lords of the Summit) Gift / Rank 2 Wendigo Gift

The Ahroun can display the true extent of her power, scaring one chosen foe into quiescence for a number of turns. Spirits of fear teach this Gift.

System: The player rolls Strength + Intimidation (difficulty of the target’s Willpower). Each success she achieves cows the enemy for one turn; the victim cannot attack at this time. He may defend himself if attacked and otherwise act normally, although his action will likely be guided by fear.

Shadows of the Impergium

Rank 2 Red Talon Gift

The Red Talon becomes the embodiment of all of humanity’s primal fears of the wolf, carrying a heavy miasma of ancient terror about her. A fear-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The werewolf inflicts the Delirium in Hispo form, though observers are considered to be at +2 Willpower when judging their reaction. Anyone who succumbs to the Delirium because of seeing the werewolf in Crinos form is considered to have a Willpower five points lower than their true rating (minimum 1) for the purposes of determining reaction. This Gift’s effects are permanent, though they can be suppressed for a scene if desired.

Rank 3 Shadow Lord Gift

Camp: Lords of the Summit & Judges of Doom

This Gift was originally discovered by a cult of Shadow Lords known as the Judges of Doom. A Garou may use this Gift to terrify his victim into a confession. This Gift is taught by a Fear-spirit.

System: The interrogator rolls Manipulation + Subterfuge or Interrogation; the defendant resists with an opposed Willpower roll. If the Garou succeeds, the defendant will be paralyzed with fear for one round and confess the greatest crime that he has committed during the last cycle of the moon. This is long enough for a one sentence confession, but may only be used once per moon cycle. Judges of Doom may learn this as a Level One Gift.
