Road Ward / Ward of the Road

Rank 2 Bone Gnawers Gift
Called Ward of the Road in the 1st Bone Gnawers Tribebook and Road Ward in revised)

You’ve been tossed out of just about everywhere. Now the spirits help you survive falls that would cripple just about anyone else. Leaping out of a car on the freeway is a minor inconvenience. Getting pushed off a building is a bitch. Either way, this Gift can still reduce the damage from the fall. As a side effect, for one scene after you activate the Road Ward, you’ll always land on your feet. Wanderlust-spirits teach this Gift.

System: Any use of this Gift requires one Willpower point and a Stamina + Survival roll (difficulty 6); you can immediately activate this Gift before you hit the ground. Falling out of a car moving up to 75 mph requires one success; every additional 25 mph requires an additional success. If you succeed, you take no damage and roll to a stop. Falling off a building reduces the damage by one story for each success. As a side effect, Road Ward cancels the Ahroun Gift: Falling Touch, as well as any trip attempt or leg seep; it can be activated in response to any of those attacks.
