Slip of the Tongue

Rank 2 Ragabash Gift

Sensing the truth is the purview of the Half Moon, but the trickster is adept at obtaining admissions of guilt, however accidental. By engaging in a conversation (heated or otherwise), the user of this Gift can make the target accidentally remark on what she wished to hide (“of course I had everything to do with his death… I mean, nothing to do with it!” or “The necklace isn’t here, search all you like, but don’t bother with the study, that’s so obvious!”) The slip may only arouse already suspicious minds, but it may fluster the target enough to cause some more tangible admission of guilt, like a confession or an attack. This Gift is taught by a Gaffling of Falcon or by any truth spirit.

System: The Ragabash must engage the target in a conversation relating to the suspected crime or action. The player and target make a resisted Manipulation + Subterfuge roll, difficulty of the opponent’s Willpower. One success allows a subtle slip only noticeable to the already suspicious, while five results in the spilling of damning information no judge could discount.

Inner Light

Rank 2 Stargazer Gift

The Stargazer can step sideways into the Umbra using only his own inner light; he has no need of a reflection or bright light to guide him. This Gift is taught by an Epiphling of Truth.

System: The character is always considered to be using a mirror when attempting to step sideways, regardless of the presence of any reflective surface. The player must still roll Gnosis as usual, and the Stargazer can still be “caught.” He may lead packmates into the Umbra as per the usual rules.

Ancestral Incarnation

Rank 5 Stargazers Gift

The connection of a Stargazer to his ancestors can be deemed more “intense” than that of other Garou. This Gift is proof of that. The few Stargazers with this Gift are not only able to plumb the depths of the ancestral memories for help, but are literally able to become one (or many) of their ancestors for a short time. The Stargazer glows with a pale nimbus of light and actually exhibits the physical traits (altering her appearance) of one or several of her ancestors. For a time, the Stargazer may also tap into the wealth of knowledge and ability of her forebears and use that to enhance her own actions for a time. This Gift is taught by an Epiphling of Truth.

System: The player spends three Gnosis points. The Stargazer exhibits a number of ancestral traits equal to the dots in her Ancestors Background. (For instance, Naipurya Sunblade has an Ancestors score of three. She exhibits three traits of her ancestors that alter her appearance. From her ancestor Silverstar she gains a mane of gray hair, from her ancestor Fu-Kui-Kang she shows bright yellow eyes, and from her ancestor Gi-on Shows-the-Way she gains a long scar along the length of her muzzle.) For the remainder of the scene, the Stargazer may also add her Ancestors score to any roll she makes.
