Werewolf the Apocalypse information source



Rank 4 Lupus Gift

A common trick of desert-dwelling Garou, this Gift allows the user to produce a noxious venom. The werewolf’s bile can incapacitate or even kill a victim. The Garou herself is immune to her own poison, but she can be incapacitated by another Garou’s Venom attack.

A rattlesnake-spirit teaches this Gift. Most Garou hesitate to make deals with snakes and serpents, but sometimes necessity outweighs prejudice.

System: After making a successful bite attack, the Garou must roll Stamina + Primal-Urge in a resisted roll against the target’s Stamina +4. For every additional success the attacker gets, the victim receives an additional nonsoakable, aggravated wound along with whatever damage the bite caused. Each success also reduces the target’s Stamina by one level until the victim loses consciousness. Additional poisonous bites can force the victim into a coma and eventually kill her.
