Scent of Sweet Honey

Rank 1 Bone Gnawers Gift

A target the Garou touched at some point during the last hour begins to exude a wonderfully sweet aroma, and becomes slightly sticky to the touch. All manner of vermin quickly appear and coat the victim. The resulting coat of gnats, flies, bees and beetles crawls, stings, and generally impairs vision and hearing. Insect-spirits teach this Gift.

System: The player spends one Gnosis point and rolls Wits + Subterfuge (difficulty 7). The target suffers a –1 penalty to all actions for one hour per success; the smell will not wash off during this time.

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.

Rank 4 Homid Gift

The werewolf can wrap himself in a thick, opaque sarcophagus-like epidermis, making him immobile but near-impervious to harm. This cocoon grants him immunity to fire, starvation, gas, high pressure, cold and similar environmental hazards. An insect or Weaver-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The Garou spends on Gnosis point. While in the cocoon, the werewolf ignores any attacks which fail to do damage at least equal to her Stamina + Rituals, but attacks that pierce the cocoon destroy it. The cocoon lasts for one scene, after which it dissolves rapidly and evaporates. The player may extend the duration of the Gift spending more Gnosis points. Spending days in the cocoon is entirely possible, but the maximum duration is up to the Storyteller.
