Stinging Blows

Rank 2 Children of Gaia Gift

The Children hate to admit it, but sometimes you can’t negotiate your way to a position of peace. Occasionally, you have to have faith in your own righteousness, and enforce you will upon those who are genuinely acting like children. But it you’re going to do it, at least you can make your claim as strongly as possible and prevent unnecessary damage. This Gift is taught by a wasp spirit.

System: The Child of Gaia spends one Rage. For the rest of the scene, her attacks are so painful that anyone struck by her immediately ignores any other foes he may be facing and attack the Child (Willpower roll, difficulty 9 to resist). Usually this Gift is employed to break apart two foes who otherwise couldn’t be. It’s a risky gambit, but sometimes effective.

Spirit Knife

Rank 2 Theurge Gift

Using this Gift, a Theurge can imbue a knife — or any other weapon she hand-crafted herself — with the power to strike across the Gauntlet, affecting enemies on the other side. This Gift conveys no ability to see across the Gauntlet beyond what the Garou normally possesses, however. A Wasp-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The Garou spends one Gnosis point, and any single weapon she crafted entirely herself is able to strike creatures on either side of the Gauntlet in any area where the Gauntlet is equal to or lower than her Gnosis. This effect lasts for the duration of the scene.

Heart Claw

Rank 3 Black Furies Gift

The Fury breaks one of her claws off in a wound, imbuing it with all of her killing intent. The claw continues to burrow into her opponent’s flesh, and will not stop until it finds his heart. A wasp-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: Upon making a successful claw attack, the player spends one point of Willpower. The burrowing claw inflicts one automatic level of unsoakable lethal damage each subsequent turn until it either kills the target or is dug out of the wound (a Dexterity + Medicine action, difficulty 7, requiring a turn’s full concentration).

Wasp Talons

Rank 4 Black Furies Gift

The Fury with this talent can fire her claws from her hand like darts. She is incapable of using claw attacks with that hand until her claws regenerate, however. A wasp-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The player spends a Rage point and rolls Dexterity + Brawl to hit. The difficulty is figured as though the character was using a fire-arm; the medium range is 20 yards. Damage is figured normally for a claw-strike. The Garou’s claws take one full turn to regenerate.
