Howl of the Unseen

Rank 2 Fianna Gift

Just as then ancient peoples had power in the connections between two halves (day/night, light half/dark half, etc),
so do the Fianna draw on their connection of spirit world and physical realm to bridge the Gauntlet. This Gift allows a howl from one side of the Gauntlet to echo across to the other. It is taught by a Bean Si, as well as by the spirits of animals that make loud noise without being seen, such as frogs or insects.

System: The Garou rolls Gnosis, difficulty of the Gauntlet, after which she may howl or speak for up to a full turn; the sound will be clearly audible on both sides of the Gauntlet. The Storyteller is free to determine how much can be said in the span of one turn.

Sing Down the Rain

Rank 3 Uktena Gift

This Gift is used to bring rain from the heavens, either to nourish crops and cleanse the land, or to cause damage through mudslides and flooding. This Gift is common among Ghost Dancers. A frog-spirit teaches the Gift.

System: The Garou sings or howls a ritual chant; the player spends a Gnosis point and rolls Wits + Occult (difficulty is ordinarily 7; 8 in a cloudless desert, 6 in a temperate rainforest). One or two successes brings down a misty drizzle after a short delay, but three successes causes a heavy rain to fall almost immediately. Four or more successes means the rain comes in heavy torrents. The effects ordinarily last one scene, but the player may spend Gnosis to continue the effects. Depending on the Storyteller, the terrain and the user’s intent, the effects may cause flooding, mudslides or even wash away pollutants.
