Many Bone Gnawers learn a preternatural resistance to poisons and toxins of all kinds, doubtless due to their diet of refuse and American beer. A trash-spirit teaches this Gift. The effects last for the scene. A Bone Gnawer with this Gift can create a perfectly functional shelter for herself. That Garou can fashion any ordinary cardboard box into a waterproof, noise-resistant and insulated home. A home or hearth-spirit can teach this Gift.
System : The Bone Gnawer needs only a box of suitable size. A large enough box can sleep more than one — as long as everybody is friendly. The Gnawer spends a Gnosis point and crawls in for an evening nap. A target the Garou touched at some point during the last hour begins to exude a wonderfully sweet aroma, and becomes slightly sticky to the touch. All manner of vermin quickly appear and coat the victim.
The resulting coat of gnats, flies, bees and beetles crawls, stings, and generally impairs vision and hearing. Insect-spirits teach this Gift. The target suffers a —1 penalty to all actions for one hour per success; the smell will not wash off during this time. If used on a caern toem, the totem looks favorably upon the Bone Gnawer. The Gnawer may then perform the Rite of the Opened Caern, if he knows it, without fear of retribution.
A lost-dog-spirit, a spirit servant of Rat, teaches this Gift. System : The Bone Gnawer must know the name of the totem in question. Success indicates that the character gains the previously mentioned benefits for one day, and that the totem will not look favorably on a Garou who mistreats the Bone Gnawer without cause. However, using it too often certainly will. If your home has no walls, sleeping can be a nightmare. Some werewolves solve this problem by sleeping in packs, but it never hurts to take extra precautions. Rural Garou set twigs and branches that easily snap underfoot; Bone Gnawers rig the same warnings with tin cans, tripwires, or even broken glass.
With a little mystical aid, a werewolf can enlist spirits in similar defenses. The werewolf can never be sure exactly where the boundary of the urban ward is set but he may be paranoid enough to spend more time setting multiple layers of trash around his encampment. This Gift is taught by a Rat-spirit, who usually warns its student to always collect trash and shy things for just this purpose. Trash is set around the periphery, usually junk that makes noise when its disturbed. If anyone crosses this imaginary boundary, the Bone Gnawer hears the spirits scream a silent warning to him.
Any supernatural creature attempting to use its powers to overcome the Urban Ward for instance, with the vampire Discipline: Obfuscate must score more successes on its roll to activate the proper supernatural power than the Garou did. For more mundane creatures, like humans, crossing the boundary automatically warns the Garou, who may consciously decide whether to wake up.
The Garou must have a small pot a coffee can will doe and a ladle or spoon to use this Gift. He places whatever he can find into the pot — trash, beer cans, old newspapers, etc. The result is a pasty, bland-tasting mush that is nevertheless edible and filling. The refuse of humanity provides all the canny Bone Gnawer needs. Through the use of this Gift, any broken object can be temporarily restored to full functionality and usefulness.
A raccoon-spirit teaches this Gift. The object functions perfectly for one turn per success, and also supplies its own power, fuel, or ammunition — a dull knife cuts, a busted microwave runs without being plugged into anything , an old rusty Saturday night special fires even without bullets, a junked car starts up and runs. With ten minutes, a bit of rage, and everyday household chemicals, you can unleash a firestorm of vengeance against an uncaring world. You have a deep and instinctive understanding of the principles of modern chemistry, one that allows you to scratch-build and detonate explosives.
Rat-spirits teach this Gift, occasionally with the help of a few furtive cranks on the internet. System: One scene. One Rage. At least three household kitchen chemicals approved by the Storyteller. The Result? Detonating the explosives properly is the difficult part. With one success, the explosives will detonate at the specified date and time. With a few sniffs, you can smell how successful someone really is.
After mastering this elemental talent, the Garou can then sniff out deeper secrets from passers-by. This insight can also be used on people who beg for food, money, or assistance from the Garou; for instance, Hoods use this ability to distinguish someone who really needs help from a scam artist. Either way, this Gift is taught by a rat-spirit, usually while the student sits on a street corner asking for help over and over again; the rat gets a cut of any handouts during the time of training.
Pick a person within about a city block you can see. One success reveals one of the following facts: whether the person has money in his pocket, whether he has a job, or whether he has a home your choice. If you score five successes, some telltale clue also reveals more specific information. With spiritual insight, you can narrow down four or five choices of where his home may be, what company he works for, or the last item he just bought.
Specific information may come as a vision of facts whispered by a helpful Gaffling. This Gift may be unreliable on creatures other than humans. If a supernatural creature is impersonating someone else say, with the Obfuscate Discipline or the Doppleganger Gift , you must beat the number of successes on the initial roll for that talent. The Bunyip had a distinct tie to the Umbra of their homeland, more powerful than that of most Garou.
System : Whenever the moon is visible in the night sky, the Garou may, after a full minute of concentration, step sideways or use Gifts as if the Gauntlet were two levels lower. This reduction in difficulty is not cumulative with the reduction for using a reflective surface to step sideways. Great Bunyip taught his children the trick of paralyzing a person with a glance, so that they might defend themselves against humans with mercy. For each success that the player gains over the target, the target is frozen in place for one turn and cannot defend himself.
If the target is an ordinary mortal, the player may choose to spend a Willpower point to make the paralysis last for the rest of the scene. The paralyzed victim remembers not being able to move, but does not know why; it is rationalized away as per Delirium rules. This Gift cannot be used on shapeshifters or the undead, only mortals or those who are mostly mortal such as fomori. This Gift was a common survival trick among Bunyip, learned from the spirits of burrowing animals such as wombats.
The Garou can burrow into the ground when he needs to rest, sleeping comfortably to regain his strength without fear of suffocation. The Garou burrows into the earth to a distance of about five feet, filling in the hole after himself. The Gift allows the werewolf to rest up to twelve hours without need for air. As such, this Gift is most useful in areas where the ground will be covered before long by dust, sand, or leaf litter. Children of Gaia see no use for lethal force when they are not fighting minions of the Wyrm, but even they succumb to frenzy.

This Gift, used chiefly by Children of Gaia with high Rage or in duels, allows the Garou to use her natural weaponry and Rage without fear of killing her opponent. A dove-spirit teaches this Gift. System : The player spends on Gnosis point. For the rest of the scene, all damage that the Garou inflicts with her own body claws and teeth, but no weapons of any kind is considered bashing.
Drawing upon the universal brotherhood of all creatures of Gaia, the werewolf seems to fit in wherever he goes. A servant of Unicorn teaches this Gift. An ancestor-spirit teaches this Gift. The Garou can call upon one of the powers of Turtle and greatly slow his metabolism. He must remain inactive, but can exist without breathing for hours at a time. In addition, uncontrolled bleeding halts.
Extremes of heat or cold can be ignored. Ingested or injected poisons slow their passage through the body, and do not take full effect for hours, allowing someone to fetch an antidote before that time. This Gift is taught by a turtle-spirit. System : The player must spend a Gnosis point and make a Gnosis roll, difficulty 6, to enter the torpor-like trance. The trance lasts for one hour per success, although the Garou may choose to awaken early after a given amount of time has passed. The Garou can see Wyld energy in all its manifestations, thus allowing him to prevent it from growing too powerful or to defend himself against it.
For instance, the Garou can see the mystic swirling of the Umbral wind that presages a tornado in the physical realm or feel the shaking of the Umbral earth before a real earthquake. A Garou using Wyld Sight in the physical world can also sense Wyld spirits in the nearby Penumbra, although the user must enter the Umbra to get more details. This Gift is taught by a Wyld-spirit. If successful, the Garou understands the nature of the Wyld manifestation and realizes what form of Wyld-spirit is causing it.
Use the following table to determine how early a Garou can predict a Wyld event:. The Garou can turn raw, unprocessed food into a cooked meal without need of fire. In addition, the meal tastes first class. This Gift is taught by earth-spirits allied to Corn Maiden. System : The player must make a Gnosis roll, difficulty 7; the more successes, the more elaborate the final meal. The old legends relate of Fianna warriors leaping over enemies and crossing rivers without getting their feet wet; this Gift is one way they did it.
Hare-, frog- and cat-spirits usually teach this Gift. The lost Bunyip knew this Gift as Leap of the Kangaroo, however marsupial-spirits seem loath to aid werewolves these days. If successful, she may double her normal jumping distance. The Garou can conjure a small, bobbing sphere of light. The sphere illuminates only a three-foot area, but that is usually enough to provide the necessary light — or to lead foes into ambush. A marsh-spirit or faerie teaches this Gift. It can move, bobbing along at 10 feet per turn, if bidden to do so. The light lasts for one turn per success, but the player can spend a point of Gnosis to make it last for the entire scene.
The glib words and clever schemes of the Fianna are wasted on a single mark. This Gift teaches the werewolf to talk out of both sides of her face, literally carrying on two conversations simultaneously, and to decide who hears what. System: The player spends a Willpower point. For the rest of the scene, the Fianna may simultaneously carry on two conversations at the same time, which need have no relation to one another. By invoking the power of waking dreams, the Garou can place any chosen characters into silent communion.
A Chimerling teaches this Gift. All those included in the dream may interact normally through the Mindspeak, although they can inflict no damage through it. Their real bodies can still act, although all dice pools decrease by two. The Mindspeak ends when all the participants want it to, or on the turn the Galliard fails the roll against an unwilling member.
The beings affected must be within line of sight. The werewolf with this GIft may communicate with any animals from fish to mammals. This Gift does not change their basic reactions; most animals are still afraid of predators such as werewolves. Any spirit of nature can teach this Gift. As mentioned earlier in this chapter, Galliards often share one trait even before the Change takes them. That trait is memory. Moon-Dancers often have good heads for detail; this Gift, however, accentuates that capacity.
The Garou can then remember any one detail, no matter how small, from her entire life. A name she only heard once, a scent that she only smelled faintly — whatever the memory, as long as she experienced it, she can call it to mind. Note that this Gift does not provide context for the memory, but using it can lower the difficulty on related rolls remembering a conversation the character had with his father about cars might aid in fixing an engine, for example. The Storyteller has final say over whether or not the character has ever experienced a given detail.
Ever since the Impergium and the War of Rage, everything else on the planet has lived in awe and terror of the sound of wolves howling. Pitching her voice just so, the Galliard produces a call that only canines can hear including homid werewolves. Humans and other creatures automatically ignore the sound, feeling safe in their ignorance. City Garou and those infiltrating enemy bases find this particularly useful.
The player spends one Gnosis point to achieve the effect. Not all of them are particularly good at it. This Gift is taught by an elephant-spirit. System : This Gift is performed in two parts. When hearing words the Galliard wants to remember perfectly, he spends one point of Gnosis. Later, when he wishes to retrieve the memory, he may spend one point of Willpower and ask the Storyteller to read it back verbatim. Should the Garou wish to remove a memory circle, they may do so simply by pulling it out of their fur while in the Umbra. The werewolf may send her howl far beyond the normal range of hearing and imbue it with great emotion, stirring the hearts of fellow Garou and chilling the bones of all others.
This Gift should be used in conjunction with one of the Garou howls see p. The Storyteller determines the effects as appropriate to the purpose to which it is put, perhaps awarding a bonus die to revel participants for each two successes, or granting a point of Rage to all listeners for an exceptional battlefield howl. A mongoose-spirit teaches this Gift. System: The player reflexively spends one Willpower point.
For the next day, the character need neither make a Willpower roll nor spend a Willpower point to abort to a defensive action. Few Garou are as territorial as the Get of Fenris. This Gift enables a Fenrir to keep a close supernatural watch on his territory, becoming instantly aware of any trespassers marked by the Wyrm. Owl-spirits teach this Gift. System: The player must spend one Gnosis to establish this early warning system, and one Gnosis per day to maintain it. The Fenrir have spread far and wide, but their home is in the North. This Gfit has served them well in their homelands, allowing them to run over snow or ice as if it were solid ground without sinking in or leaving footprints.
The Get appears larger and more fearsome, commanding respect from peers and cowing his foes. Only one success is necessary to affect non-Garou and Garou of equal rank. To affect Garou of higher rank, the player must score a number of successes equal to twice the difference of rank between the Garou and the target. For example, for a Rnak 1 Garou to affect a Rank 5 Garou would require eight successes not very likely. Allies and peers affected by this Gift see the Get as impressive and noble -1 difficulty bonus to all Social rolls.
Foes pause for a moment to summon the resolve necessary to fight such a monster losing one from their initiative ratings. This Gift lasts for one scene. When Odin imprisoned Brunhilde in a ring of fire, it was Sigurd who dared the fires and rescued her. Like Sigurd, Get of Fenris with this Gift need not fear flame. The Gift is taught by a fire spirit. Each success provides an automatic level of soak against fire damage for the rest of the scene. The Boli Zouhisze can see from the perspective of his tools and draw on their concentration for the task at hand, allowing him to perform multiple actions with ease.
System: The player spends one Gnosis point to receive an extra action. For the rest of the scene, the Garou need not be able to see his opponents in order to attack them. No visibility modifiers or off-hand penalties affect his actions while this Gift is in effect. The Garou can cause plants to take root and grow in places where it is usually impossible for plants to grow. This Gift does not make plants grow supernaturally fast; it simply gives them a chance for life where none existed before.
The plants must still be tended to and watered. However, the plants can use artificial substances such as concrete and plastic for soil.

They dig their roots in and grow. Plants can even be coaxed to grow out of walls, as long as they are nurtured during the process. This Gift is taught by plant spirits. System : The Garou must plant seeds in the area to be fertilized. If this is a concrete wall, he must place the seeds in cracks within the surface. An abandoned lot might be 5, a typical city building bathed in the smog of passing cars might be a 6 or 7, while an oil spill site might be 9.
This Gift makes those last choices a little less risky by allowing for some instinctual co-ordination to be taken. A bee or ant-spirit teaches this Gift.
The ally does not need to spend Gnosis or roll, but must also know the Gift. As long as one success is rolled, the players of each character may formulate a detailed plan out of character, which both characters instinctually grasp simply from making eye contact. Each character adds two bonus dice to his or her next roll, but for the rest of the scene after that they lose two dice from all actions. Computers have grown more and more connected in recent years, most prominently via the Internet. This Gift connects the Random Interrupt to the theoretical better computer, making all work much easier.
A Pattern Spider teaches this Gift. System : The player rolls Gnosis, difficulty 7. Every success adds one die to any roll involving the Computer Knowledge. While one of the Wise Guys favorite gun Gifts Trick Shot, rediscovered from the Iron Riders by Gianluigi Lucci eventually leaked to the whole tribe, this one may well go with them to their grave. This Gift ensures that when spraying bullets from an automatic gun, not a single bullet misses its target. A bird spirit though never a pigeon teaches this Gift. Before the attack is resolved, the Wise Guy may spend one Willpower point to turn one failed die into a success, and this may be repeated until all dice are considered successes.
The only exception to this is if the roll is a botch, in which case no Willpower may be spent and every bullet misses their target by exactly an inch. This Gift cannot be used on a single enemy; the attack must be a spray involving at least two targets. The Glass Walkers exploit this truth to draw more power from the modern profusion of technology, making their devices compatible with almost everything. A Net Spider teaches this Gift. System: The player spends one Willpower point. For the next day, any computer the Glass Walker uses — no matter how simple — becomes fully compatible with any other digital device, regardless of obstacles such as different operating systems, lack of physically compatible access ports, or even the complete absence of any means of receiving or interpreting a wireless signal.
Generally, Glass Walkers use this Gift to turn their smart phones into omni-compatible access keys to computer networks, security feeds, and even car GPS systems. At a glance, the Glass Walker can tell what is wrong with a machine. Any technological spirit can teach this Gift. She then spends one Gnosis point as the Garou mentally convinces the spirit of the device to aid her in fixing it.
The Garou must have the data to be decrypted in some form — generally, residing on a local computer. The number of successes necessary depends on the encryption used on the message or connection that the character is trying to pierce. Encryption created by ordinary mortal programmers requires one success to pierce; mundane encryption created by the top echelon of mortal programmers requires two successes to pierce.
This Gift is taught by a raccoon-spirit. The Garou may command the spirits of the simplest machines, causing levers to flip, doors to unbolt, pulleys to roll and so on. This Gift, once an acquired taste, has undergone a recent surge in popularity. The Garou cannot use this Gift to harm an opponent directly, however, and he can use Trick Shot only with rifles or pistols. Air-spirits teach this Gift. As any underpaid and underprivileged office worker will tell you, getting any budget approved involves knowing whom to ask.
Those types would find this Gift a blessing, as would many other types. This Gift lets you find the weak point of any social group, which person can be leaned on to get results. It is taught by either an ant- or bee-spirit. If successful, the Garou automatically knows which member of a group it would be best to approach to get results in her efforts. The number of success determines how large a group can be scanned.
Working out which punk to hit in a street gang to make the rest run would only require one success, working out which guy needs to bribing to bring down an entire corporation would require at least five. Too many Garou are afraid of advancing beyond the limits of their bodies. To counter this, the Cyber Dogs have a Gift that banishes fear, anxiety or any other emotion. People targeted by this Gift lose their emotion temporarily, able to think perfectly logically. The target can choose not to resist, and you may target yourself. If successful, the target becomes cold and impersonal for as many turns as successes achieved, thinking entirely with intellect and ignoring emotion.
The greatest toll a Soldier has is her equipment. The worst enemy she has is the possibility of it failing. This Gift greatly reduces those chances by safeguarding machinery against environmental factors. It is taught by a dust, war, or water-spirit. The Garou safeguards one machine against natural corrosion or adverse weather for one day per success. This machine can still be damaged by direct attacks. Whilst the urban jungle offers many new possibilities for the hunter, it also presents its share of difficulties. One of the most troublesome of these is the possibility of their prey slipping into a crowd and simply disappearing.
With this Gift, the Glass Walker can see through the eyes of a glass spirit in a skyscraper window to pick out their prey from above. The City Father or a glass-spirit teaches this Gift. System: The player makes a Gnosis roll difficulty 6. For every success rolled, the character can see from the perspective of any window in the area about half a city block for one turn.
Difficulty should be set by Storyteller to reflect the elusiveness of the target. System : The player spends a point of Rage. This Gift does not decrease the difficulty for Athletics rolls used to climb, but it does allow the Garou to run, or make an Athletics roll to improve his speed, just as he could while moving across an empty plain. This Gift is taught by a monkey-spirit.
Many city Garou use this Gift when facing off against just about anything with a particularly sensitive nose: this can include other Garou, Black Spiral Dancers, and a host of normal animals or Wyrm-creatures. The Gift incapacitates its target by overwhelming its sense of smell with the stink of the city: sweat, blood, human waste, rot, smoke and car exhaust.
Garou have been known to use this Gift to pull one of their own out of the thrall of frenzy, or to incapacitate a crazed wolf without permanent injury. The Black Spiral Dancers are said to be quite familiar with Stench and the City as well, and are perfectly willing to use it on Gaian Garou.
For every success rolled, the target loses one die from all actions for the next turn; if five successes are rolled, the target is incapacitated for the scene. The target may resist by holding its breath, if he is aware; if he does so he must follow the rules for suffocation on p. This Gift is taught by a skunk-spirit. The spirits of flame agree to hold back their hunger when the werewolf touches them. An ancestor spirit or a fire-spirit grants this Gift. System : This Gift allows a werewolf to heal fire damage as if it were bashing. This requires the expenditure of a Gnosis point; the effects last for a scene.
This Gift allows a homid to become more persuasive when dealing with others, in such a way that his statements and arguments are imbued with added meaning or credibility. If successful, the Storyteller reduces the difficulties of all Social rolls by one for the remainder of the scene. In addition, any successful Social rolls may have significantly more impact than they would without the Gift. A werewolf could win arguments with hard line opponents, or cause a cold-hearted psychopath to relent at least for a little while.
Creatures of the wild have leanred well that where man goes, death follows. With this Gift the werewolf enhances the human scent around him greatly, causing wild animals to feel uneasy and nervous.

However, the scent also causes domestic animals to recognize the werewolf as their master. System : All wild animals not including supernatural creatures in animal form lose one die from their dice pools when within 20 feet of the Garou save when defending themselves or running away , and they are likely to flee. All domesticated animals recognize the werewolf as a friend and refuse to harm him. For example, an attack-trained dog ordered to take down the werewolf would run up to the character and wag its tail.
If the domesticated animal is harmed, then it will revert to acting naturally. The Garou may use this GIft at will. She wimply states when she is activating it or turning it off. The homid focuses this mastery into the tools she uses, causing their spirits to awaken and lend her aid. An ancestor-spirit or spirit of a man-made object teaches this Gift. Each success reduces the difficulty by one on the next roll she makes for her character to employ a tool made by human hands. The purpose is irrelevant—this Gift is equally efficacious for attempts to repair an engine, drive a car or fire a gun.
The werewolf with this Gift tunes in to the world around him, increasing his senses vastly. When in Homid or Glabro form, her senses become as sharp as those of a wolf, allowing him to hear sounds beyond his normal range, granting him superior night vision and making his sense of smell stronger than that of any dog. In wolf forms, his senses become preternaturally potent, allowing him to perform feats that border on precognition.
Its smell is pleasing to the Lord. Sprinkle this on Aaron and his clothes and on his sons and their clothes. In addition, take the best part of the liver, both kidneys, and the fat around them, and the right thigh. From it take a loaf of bread, a cake made with olive oil, and a wafer. This is an offering made by fire to the Lord ; its smell is pleasing to the Lord. These parts belong to them.
