Blizzard of Arrows

Rank 4 Black Furies Gift

Camp: Amazons of Diana

The Black Fury who uses this Gift truly shows herself the equal of any man – or machine – on the battlefield. Once Blizzard of Arrows is activated, the Garou deals out nightmarish pain to the hordes that oppose her. Heroes with this Gift might single-handedly have turned cavalry charges, in the days when such things still took place. For today, however, the Fury with this Gift is the perfect ally when faced by hordes of Wyrm-creatures. This Gift is taught by a Porcupine-spirit.

System: Spend a point of Willpower and two points of Rage, and you may take a single arrow shot (at no multi-action penalty) at every at every foe within 100 yards, to a maximum of 20 enemies. Simply roll to hit once, using the sight and range penalties for the hardest to hit foe in range, and apply that number of successes against each enemy, which may soak, dodge, etc, as the Storyteller sees fit.

This Gift is limited by the number of arrows you have on hand: all arrows that you intend to shoot must be someplace that can easily be nocked and shot from (in a quiver on the back or waist, or stuck point-first into the ground in front of you;  lying scattered nearby will not suffice). The bow and arrows may be of modern manufacture, but cannot use any exceptional Weaver-based equipment (such as laser sights or explosive tips) to gain any accuracy or damage boost. However, a fetise bow shooting talen arrows is certainly acceptable.

Gift of the Porcupine

Rank 4 Metis Gift

When using this Gift, the werewolf undergoes a startling transformation. Her fur becomes elongated, bristly and sharp like the quills of a porcupine. This change makes her an even more fearsome killing machine. A werewolf must be in Crinos, Hispo or Lupus form to use this Gift. Porcupine teaches this Gift, and he has a great fondness for metis.

System: The character spends a Gnosis point to sharpen his fur. Anyone whom the metis tackles, grapples or immobilizes takes aggravated damage from his new found quills (Strength +1). Furthermore, anyone who strikes him with bare flesh (and scoring fewer than five successes on the attack roll) takes damage based on the attacker’s own Strength, although the metis still takes normal damage. This Gift lasts for one scene or until the werewolf wills his fur to return to normal.
