Aura of Leadership (Silver Fang Rank 1)

Similar to the Level Two Silver Fang Gift: Awe, this Gift surrounds the Garou with an aura of authority that enables her to assume the mantle of leadership for a brief period of time. Others react to the Garou as if she was their pack leader - including the pack leader. Of course, there may be repercussions after the effects of the Gift have passed.

System: Th player rolls Charisma + Empathy (difficulty of the highest Willpower in the target ground). If successful, the difficulties of all Social rolls against the target group are reduced by one. One success enables the character to affect a single target. Additional successes increase the number of individuals who fall unde the effects of the Gift. The effects last for one scene.

Eye of the Falcon (Silver Fang Rank 1)

This Gift allows the Garou to see long distances with the acuity of a falcon. It is taught by any of

Falcon's brood.

System: All visual Perception, Alertness and long-range weapon rolls are at -1 difficulty. This Gift costs one Gnosis point per scene to use.

Falcon's Grasp (Silver Fang Rank 1)

A leader must keep a tight grip on his power, and this Gift allows the Garou to do so literally. The Garou's hands or jaws tighten in a mighty death-grip, making it nearly impossible to escape. A falcon spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The player spends a point of Rage. For the remainder of the scene, the Garou's grip with either hands or jaws (or both at the cost of two Rage) is much stronger. In game terms, the Garou's Strength is considered three points higher for purposes of grappling or maneuvers such as the jaw lock. The Garou may not use this extra Strength to inflict damage.

Full Moon Cleansing (Silver Fang Rank 1 - Moon Lodge, Ahroun)

This Gift allows the Garou to shake off Harano by overpowering it with Rage. (The Gift does not dispel Derangements.) Many Silver Fang Ahroun learn this Gift, regardless of lodge. Blood-warrior spirits teach this Gift. To learn it, the Garou must kill the spirit in ritual combat and then burn it in an Umbral fire, and smearing herself with the ashes.

System: The player must spends one point of Rage and make a Rage roll (difficulty 7) for the character to activate this Gift. The Gift's effects last for one scene.

Ice Dance (Silver Fang Rank 1)

The werewolf can move on ice and snow with supernatural grace and speed.

System: The player spends a Gnosis point to activate this Gift for one day. This is a Gift of balance; Philodox are especially adept at this art. All Dexterity rolls are -1 difficulty while on ice or snow (-2 for Philodox), and a Garou can run at normal speeds through even the deepest snow and on the slickest ice. A Philodox running on ice can double his normal speed. An Ice Elemental teaches this Gift.

Lambent Flame (Silver Fang Rank 1)

The Garou can cause a silvery light to ignite around her body. This Gift is taught by a Lune.

System: The Garou must spend one Willpower point. The effect lasts for the duration of the scene. The light illuminates in a 100-foot radius, and the ensuing glare adds one to the difficulties of all hand-to-hand attacks on the Garou; the difficulties of all missile attacks, however, are reduced by one.

SenseWyrm (Silver Fang Rank 1)

The Garou can sense manifestations of the Wyrm in the nearby area. This Gift involves a mystical sense, not a visual or olfactory image, although Garou using this Gift are likely to say, "This place stinks of the Wyrm." This power requires active concentration. This Gift is taught by any spirit servant of Gaia.

System: The Garou rolls Perception + Occult. The difficulty for this Gift is based on the concentration and strength of the Wyrm's influence (sensing a single formor in a room would have a difficulty of 6). Vampires can be sensed using this Gift, but only those with Humanity scores lower than 7.

Awe (Silver Fang Rank 2)

The Garou, simply by her bearing and strength, proves to others her mastery and right to rule other tribes. This Gift is taught by a Falcon spirit.

System: The Garou rolls Appearance + Empathy (difficulty of the target's Willpower). If successful, the difficulties for all Social rolls made by the Garou against that target are reduced by one, and the target's difficulty to hit the Garou in combat is increased by one.

Empathy (Silver Fang Rank 2)

To be a leader among wolves is largely a matter of physical dominance, but a human leader must understand his charges and follow their will to a degree. With this Gift, a Silver Fang can understand those around him and live up to their expectations. A falcon spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The player spends one Gnosis point and rolls Intelligence + Empathy (difficulty 7). Success indicates that the Garou knows that the majority would like to see, be it attack, mediation, harsh punishment or clemency. The more successes the player rolls, the better the Garou understands the people's desires, even if the people would rather keep those desires secret. Note that this Gift by no means reveals the wisest or most rational decisions, just the most popular one.

Taught by: Falcon

Book: WW3e

Fool's Silver (Silver Fang Rank 2)

The Silver Fang can trick a victim into thinking an ordinary item is made of silver. Whereas greedy humans flock to the illusion, Garou are usually wary and back away from it. A Lune teaches this Gift.

System: The Silver Fang concentrates for one turn to make the Gift active. The selected item gleams with a silvery sheen. Garou who hold the item feel the sting of normal silver for about 10 seconds, after which the illusory "pain" vanishes.

Taught by: Lune

Book: Wild West Companion

Gibbous Moon Song (Silver Fang Rank 2 - Moon Lodge, Galliard)

When used by Fangs of other auspices, this Gift makes the Garou more adept at social situations. It makes Galliards loquacious and silver-tongued in the extreme. Galliard moon-dancers who use this Gift draw upon the moon's mysteries to cast complementary light on their every action. The Galliard naturally draws people's attention. A "social Gaffling" of the Great Green Cheese Spirit (a traditional Bone Gnawer ally) teaches this Gift. This fact is scandalous to most Silver Fangs.

System: To learn this Gift, the Garou must best the spirit in a word contest (Wits + Enigmas, difficulty 8). The player spends a point of Gnosis for the Garou to use this Gift. All Social Skills are -1 difficulty for the duration of the scene. Galliards who use this Gift are -3 difficulty on all Social rolls.

Luna's Armour (Silver Fang Rank 2)

The Garou calls upon the blessing of Luna to deter any damaging attacks aimed at her. This Gift is taught by a Lune.

System: The Garou concentrates for one turn, spends one Gnosis point, and rolls Stamina + Survival (difficulty 6). Each success allows the Garou to add one to her Stamina for the purpose of soaking damage (including silver). The effect lasts for one scene.

Proclamation of Action (Silver Fang Rank 2)

This Gift enables the Garou to force an end to discussion and take the course of action the character thinks is best. The werewolf can literally command others to act as he bids, although only if they had been previously dithering over a course of action

System: The player spends a Willpower point and rolls Charisma + Leadership to put a damper on discussions that have gone on too long. ("Enough talk. Let's do it"). Each success allows the character to affect a single target. A character desiring to resist the effects of the Gift must make a Willpower roll (difficulty of the Gift user's Willpower + 1, up to a maximum of 10). This Gift lasts for one scene.

Taught by: Zarok

Book: RatH

Reason (Silver Fang Rank 2)

The Silver Fang who uses this Gift may temporarily free himself from Harano and Derangements. This Gift may also be used to partially defend against all sanity-endangering attacks. Examples of such attacks include the Galliard Gift: Headgames, and Malkavian Dementation Discipline and invasive uses of Mind magick. A Firebird-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The player must spend a Gnosis point and roll Willpower (difficulty 7). The Garou overcomes all mental dysfunctions for a number of scenes equal to the number of successes rolled. All psychic attacks against the Garou's sanity are reduced by one die. If the player botches the roll, the character's dementia becomes painfully intense for a day.

Truce of Helios (Silver Fang Rank 2 - Sun Lodge)

Helios is, among other things, a spirit of reason and diplomacy. Garou who follow him are often skilled diplomats. This Gift helps ensure that the other side at least listens to the Garou's words. Helios is also an honorable Celestine; the Silver Fang may not use this Gift as a ruse to gain momentary advantages (gain time to set an ambush, for example). A Garou may learn this Gift from one of the Children of Karnak or from a Firebird-spirit.

System: The player must roll Charisma + Etiquette (difficulty 7). If successful, the Silver Fang negotiates under a spiritually enforced flag of truce. All those whom he negotiates with must make Willpower rolls (difficulty 9, two successes needed) to attack the Garou. The truce lasts one hour for each success rolled. If the Silver Fang breaks the words of the truce, the effects of the Gift end and will never work on the same target again. Additionally, the Silver Fang loses three points of temporary Honor. This Gift costs a Gnosis point to use.

Word of Honor (Silver Fang Rank 2)

To a Silver Fang, honour is everything. This Gift imbues a Garou's words with his honourable bearing. As long as the Silver Fang speaks the truth, others believe him. An Eagle spirit teaches the Silver Fangs how to speak clear and true.

System: By spending a Gnosis point, the Silver Fang can make every word he says bear the ring of truth. Anyone who listens hears that the Gift user speaks true. Listeners are not necessarily inclined to obey the Fang or follow his suggestions, but the facts are clear. The Silver Fang must speak the truth, or the Gift automatically backfires.

Claim of Authority (Silver Fang Rank 3)

There are times when a Silver Fang cannot be present at important moots or meetings, and must send another Garou in her place. To make sure that any advantages to be gained aren't neglected, a Silver Fang with this Gift can grant her messenger some of her own natural authority. It is taught by an ancestor spirit.

System: The Silver Fang spends on one point of Gnosis and one point of Willpower before selecting a Garou as her representative. For a week thereafter, the representative is considered to possess the same level of Pure Breed as the Silver FAng, so long as she notes the name of the Silver Fang she speaks for.

This Gift may not be used on an unwilling target.

Taught by: Ancestor spirit

Book: PG3e

Dominance Blow (Silver Fang Rank 3)

Smart Garou know to pay the Silver Fangs their due. Stupid ones openly challenge them, and force the Silver Fangs to assert their dominance. This Gift allows a Silver Fang to easily knock down would-be rebels by connecting physical dominance with rightful leadership. When this Gift is working, might does make right. Lupus Silver Fangs are fond of this Gift, which resembles wolf understandings of alpha standing. A wolf-spirit teaches this Gift

System: The player spends one point of Rage, and rolls Charisma + Brawl, difficulty 7. If the rolls succeeds, then every blow the Silver Fang strikes against a specific target grants the Silver Fang an additional die in all Social rolls against that target, allowing him to browbeat or intimidate the target more easily. The blow need not be full force to grant the bonus, which lasts for one day.

Taught by: Wolf spirits

Book: PG3e

Half-Moon Mnemonics (Silver Fang Rank 3 - Moon Lodge, Philodox)

Luna's Philodox aspect is the teacher of ways and the keeper of memories. The Garou who learns this Gift may recall any moment with crystal clarity, freezing it forever in her mind. The Garou may then study the moment at her leisure, coming at it from almost any angle. Silver Fang Philodox are forever replaying captured memories, and thus seem especially distant to others. A Sea-spirit teaches this Gift; the Garou hears indistinct water-spirit voices throughout her training. Ideally, the Silver Fang stares into water when using this Gift to recall a memory.

System: The player must spend one point of Gnosis for the character to "photograph" a moment, and must make a Wits + Alertness roll, difficulty 6. If the Garou attempts to access the memory later, the player must make an Intelligence + Occult roll (difficulty 7; 5 when the Fang is looking into water). A botch means the image disappears forever, leaving an actual hole in the Garou's memory. A Fang may have on more memories "on file" than her permanent Gnosis score, but may "dump" unwanted images at will.

Honor Pact (Silver Fang Rank 3 - Sun Lodge)

The Honor Pact is another Gift of diplomacy. All participants must enter into the pact willingly. Those who participate exchange blood (most often by cutting their palms open) and swear oaths to Falcon. Spiritual bonds connect participants, and they may not work against each other's interests in any way. (The Storyteller has final say in what constitutes the edict.) Packmates bound by this oath are highly resistant to the tendrils of the Defiler Wyrm. The Children of Karnak teach this Gift.

System: Three temporary Gnosis points must be spent by each participant, while four must be spent by the user of the Gift. The players must also make a Charisma + Rituals roll (difficulty 7). Previous rivalries or differences between pactmakers are greatly lessened, reducing the difficulties of all Social rolls among themselves by -2. All attempts by agents of the Defiler Wyrm to corrupt those under an Honor Pact are at +2 difficulty. Garou who invoke this Gift but who frequently squabble or fight destroy the Gift's effects over time. The effects of the Gift last forever or until a participant breaks faith. The person who does so suffers five Health Levels of aggravated damage (as he is rent by the spirit-talons of Falcon), and is marked as an oath-breaker (as the Stone of Scorn rite).

Princely Bearing (Silver Fang Rank 3)

This Gift allows a Garou to temporarily raise her Rank. During this time, she is considered to be of that Rank, and thus can issue challenges and rulings appropriate to that Rank. This Gift is not used in the presence of other Silver Fangs, but traditionally only used when interacting with the lesser tribes.

System: The Garou must roll Charisma + Leadership at a difficulty of 9 and spend a Willpower point. One rank is gained for 1 success, 2 ranks if three successes are rolled, and so on. The maximum rank that can be gained is limited by their leadership score. A botch reveals the Silver Fang's perfidity.

Silver Bullets (Silver Fang Rank 3)

The Gift allows the Silver Fang to change the composition of his ammo. As he fires each shot, the bullet changes to deadly silver. Lunes and Ancestor-spirits teach this Gift.

System: The player spends a Gnosis point as he fires his gun. The bullet changes to silver and causes regular damage to normals, but it inflicts terrifying wounds on Garou. The bullet remains silver after it strikes (whether what it hits is its target or not). The altered bullets do not reduce the Silver Fang's Gnosis unless he recovers them.

Taught by: Lune or Ancestor-spirit

Book: Wild West Companion

Silver Claws (Silver Fang Rank 3)

The Garou can turn her claws into silver, making her a terror against other Garou on the battle field. This Gift is taught by a Lune.

System: The Garou rolls Gnosis (difficulty 7). All claw wounds inflict aggravated damage, which cannot be soaked by Garou. While the Garou manifests the claws, she suffers searing agony. Each turn she gains an automatic Rage point; furthermore, all noncombat difficulties are increased by one because of the distraction. When her Rage points exceed her Willpower, she must check for Frenzy.

Talons of Falcon (Silver Fang Rank 3)

This deadly Gift turns the Garou's claws into impaling weapons, allowing her to cut muscle, bone and sinew as if it were paper. Combined with the Gift: Razor Claws, this is a truly devastating attack. A falcon of the Great Flock teaches this Gift.

System: The player spends one Gnosis point and makes the usual Dexterity + Brawl roll to attack. The\ Garou makes a screeching sound like that of a bird of prey as she strikes. The attack does Strength + 3 damage and all healing powers (such as Mother's Touch) are at +1 difficulty to treat the wound.

Undisputed Ruler (Silver Fang Rank 3)

This Gift allows a Garou to take over the leadership of a small gathering of humans (whether a paramilitary group of town council) or a group of spirits for a period of up to 6 months. During this time, the targeted group accepts the Garou as their leader, rendering her the honor, respect and obedience due her position. The group demonstrates a high degree of loyalty, obeying the Garou's instructions in a manner appropriate to her position (as orders if they are paramilitary, or as legally binding decisions if the position is akin to that of a town mayor, for instance). If the Garou uses this Gift in the Umbra, the targeted group of spirits will follow the Garou's commands as if she were a greater spirit such as an Incarna. This Gift lasts anywhere from a week to six months.

System: The player spends a point of Gnosis and rolls Charisma + Leadership (difficulty of the highest Willpower in the target group). The Gift lasts for a period of time as follows.

Success Duration

One One week

Two One month

Three Two months

Four Four months

Five Six months

This Gift is only successful against mortals and spirits of no greater than Jaggling status, although "borderline" supernaturals such as ghouls and Kin are susceptible.

Book: RatH

Wrath of Gaia (Silver Fang Rank 3)

The Garou is revealed by his foes as that which Gaia intended him to be: Her Chosen Warrior. Wyrm beasts will flee in fear unless they can master their instinctual terror of Gaia's Defender. This Gift is taught by an avatar of Gaia Herself.

System: The Garou spends a Gnosis point and rolls Charisma + Intimidation (difficulty 6). All agents or minions of the Wyrm (including Kindred with Humanity scores less than 7) in the vicinity must make Willpower rolls (difficulty 7). If a Wyrm creature does not match or exceed the Garou's successes, it will flee in terror for the duration of the scene.

Command the Heart of Rage (Silver Fang Rank 4)

The Silver Fang can reach into the heart of another Garou and stifle her opponent's Rage. Even a frenzied Garou must obey the Fang's command. An avatar of Falcon teaches this Gift.

System: The player spends one Willpower point and selects a target. The Fang and the victim make resisted Willpower rolls. If the Silver Fang wins, she can dictate when and how much Rage the victim spends. This Gift works on frenzied Garou as well.

Taught by: avatar of Falcon

Book: Wild West Companion

Crescent Moon Fata (Silver Fang Rank 4 - Moon Lodge, Theurge)

Garou with this Gift can examine the tapestry of fate itself, carefully discerning individual threads to learn something of an object's past or destiny.

System: To learn this Gift, a Garou must best a potent spider or firefly Jaggling of Moira (a moon incarna). The challenge is usually a contest of arcane game-craft (Wits + Occult or Enigmas; difficulty 9; 7 for Theurges). If the roll is botched, the Jaggling becomes offended and leaves, stealing three temporary Gnosis in the process. The player must make a Perception + Enigmas roll (difficulty 5) and spend a point of Gnosis to activate this Gift. The Garou sees one "thread" per success. The Storyteller should be inventive, though somewhat cryptic, in relating visions of fate. The Garou may see the fate of

a given person, place or thing. (A Garou with four successes could apply one thread to four separate targets, or all four threads to one target). The Garou may see into the past or future (character's choice); to see into both, two threads must be applied to the same target. A thread grows indistinct the further it stretches into the past or future. How far the Garou sees depends on how many successes are applied in either direction. One success allows him to see several hours into the past or a few minutes into the future. Five successes applied in a single direction may allow the Garou to see several days into the future or hundreds or years into the past.

Enthronement (Silver Fang Rank 4)

The Garou can create small or simple objects out of thin air - including mist, clouds or wind. By shaping the air around him with his hands, the Garou may form a solid block of matter to serve as a chair, create a bowl or cup for holding liquid or construct some other useful item. Alternatively, the Garou can form small, stone-sized balls of air to use as hurled weapons against his enemies. The items last until the Garou disperses them.

System: The player simply rolls Dexterity + Repair (difficulty 7). The character may form one small item of solidified air for each success, or use two or more successes to shape a larger item (such as a throne-like seat). "Air-stones" used as weapons do the character's Strength + 1 normal damage, and dissipate upon contact with their target (or any other solid substance). In addition, the victim must make a Stamina roll (difficulty 8) to remain on her feet when the "air-stone" discharges its mass. If she fails the Stamina roll, the victim is stunned for the remainder of the round and can take no action.

Book: RatH

Ignore Death Blow (Silver Fang Rank 4)

Tales say that the first Silver Fang died and was reborn; since that time, the Fangs have passed down this Gift. A Fang with this Gift can choose to ignore what would be a killing blow. This Gift is taught by a Lion spirit.

System: Once per scene, the Fang can spend a Willpower point and ignore all damage from a single attack. The damage simply does not occur; no special handicaps take effect, either.

Alternative Versions

From: PG3e (Silver Fang Rank 5)

The Fangs claim they rule by divine right, and after seeing this Gift in action, few garou disagree.

The Silver Fang simple ignores a blow that would otherwise kill him. Seeing a blade swung with perfect accuracy toward someone's neck and watching it fail to sever the head is something few

Garou will forget - especially if they were swinging the sword. A lion-spirit or avatar of Falcon teaches this Gift.

System: Once per scene, the Fang can spend a Willpower point and ignore all damage from a single attack.

Mastery (Silver Fang Rank 4)

The Garou can command other Garou (including Wyrm-tainted Garou such as Black Spiral Dancers) to do her bidding. This Gift is taught by a Falcon spirit.

System: The Garou rolls Charisma + Leadership (difficulty of the target's Wits + 3). The Garou can cause the target to obey any non-suicidal command for one turn per success. This Gift works only against Garou.

Mindblock (Silver Fang Rank 4)

The Garou possesses a powerful psychic shield, increasing the difficulty of all attempts to affect or attack her mentally. This Gift is taught by a Falcon spirit.

System: All attempts to affect or attack the Garou mentally are made against a difficulty of 10. This includes vampiric Domination and Presence.

Divine Regalia (Silver Fang Rank 5)

The Silver Fang girds himself in shimmering, mystical armor, and a terrible light plays about his countenance. His very appearance causes even the boldest warriors to flee, but brings hope to the hearts of his packmates.

This Gift is taught by an avatar of Falcon.

System: THe player spends one Rage and one Gnosis to invoke the armor; the effects last for a scene. While the Gift is in effect, the Fang gains three extra soak dice, which can be used to soak even silver. Anyone meeting the Silver Fang's eyes (for example, if attempting to Dominate the Fang) must make Willpower rolls, difficulty 9, or immediately flee in panic as if entering a fox frenzy. For as long as his packmates are within line of sight of the Fang, they gain one extra die on all their dice pools, and two bonus successes on all Willpower tests.

Divine Regalia cannot be invoked if the Garou is already wearing armor of any sort, whether mundane mail or a Gift such as Luna's Armor.

Taught by: Falcon

Book: WWtDA

Grand Jesture (Silver Fang Rank 5)

By bestowing appropriate gifts on an individual or a group, the Garou increases her esteem and reputation in the eyes of the recipients of her largesse. The targets of this Gift tend to listen favourably to suggestions made by the Gift's user and to support her arguments or come to her aid in a battle of words or weapons. This Gift lasts for an entire scene. When the effects of the Gift come to an end, the individuals affected may still continue to regard the Garou with some residual respect depending on their experiences while the Gift was active.

System: The player rolls Manipulation + Empathy (difficulty of the highest Willpower in the target group). Each success allows her to affect one individual. While the Gift is in effect, all Gifts or Social rolls involving persuasion are automatically successful against the affected individuals.

Taught by: Zarok

Book: RatH

Luna's Avenger (Silver Fang Rank 5)

The Garou can transform her entire body into purest silver. She becomes a nigh-unstoppable warrior. This Gift is taught by a Lune.

System: The Garou concentrates for a turn and spends one Gnosis point. This Gift confers immunity to silver, and all of the Garou's attacks gain benefits equivalent to those conferred by the Silver Claws Gift (level three Ahroun). In addition, the Garou gains two extra Stamina levels, and an extra Ok Health Level. The effect lasts for one scene.

New Moon Legerdemain (Silver Fang Rank 5 - Moon Lodge, Ragabash)

This no-moon Gift represents Luna's deepest mysteries. Garou who invoke this Gift attract and command dozens of invisible, minor trickster spirits (strangelings, chimaera and Wyldlings). The creatures dance maddeningly around the Garou in the Penumbra, protecting her from harm, but causing consternation among those in the area. The spirits play tricks on everyone around them, saving their most dangerous pranks for the Garou's enemies. However, the nature of this Gift only allows the spirits to be summoned at night.

System: An avatar of Luna herself teaches this Gift, and learning it puts a Garou in Luna's service forever. Only Garou who perform a great service in Gaia's name may learn this Gift. It costs a permanent point of Gnosis to learn, and the spirits it attracts stay with the Garou until she dies. Although the spirits generally like "their Garou", they do not always listen to her orders and may even play minor pranks on her. (Furthermore, those who fail to keep their spirits in line may suffer penalties to Social rolls.) Keeping one's spirits under control should be roleplayed, but should not interfere too much with the game. The spirits are semidormant most of the time, playing only the occasional halfhearted prank. They become genuinely active during a New Moon or when the Garou wishes it. To awaken the spirits requires a Gnosis roll (difficulty 6), and the player must spend one Gnosis point. The spirits awaken for one night per success. The Garou may also put them back to sleep until needed again with the expenditure of another Gnosis point and with another roll (two successes are needed). When activated, mischievous spirits beset all the Garou's enemies in a 25-foot radius, pinching and tripping them. All rolls made by the Garou's enemies are at a +2 difficulty, and their Dice Pools are reduced by two. The spirits can also steal one item from one enemy in a given battle, as long as that enemy is in the Umbra. The nature of the item is completely random (Storyteller's discretion), but usually of little worth. The creatures may or may not show their treasures to their Garou, depending on how they regard her. Some powerful creatures (Jagglings or Incarna) may temporarily disperse a Garou's spirits by spending Gnosis. Otherwise, the spirits fade away completely during the day.

Paws of the Newborn Cub (Silver Fang Rank 5)

The Garou prevents a target from using any special or supernatural abilities. She is as a newborn cub, with only mundane powers at her disposal. This Gift is taught by Falcon-spirit.

System: The Garou spends one Gnosis point and rolls Gnosis (difficulty of the victim's Stamina + 3). Each success removes all special abilities of the opponent (aggravated damage, claws, Gifts, vampiric Blood Pool, mage Spheres, regenerative powers, special attacks) for one turn.

The Secret of Gaia (Silver Fang Rank 5)

When the Great White Wolf died to save Gaia, he learned her secrets. The nature of the actual "Secret of Gaia" is obscure, but few question that the Silver Fangs have a deep and ancient connection with the Earth Mother. This Gift is a powerful aspect of this relationship. The Garou who uses this Gift becomes completely aware of her immediate vicinity in vivid detail. The Fang is aware of the area's topography, wildlife and the local spirit population. The Silver Fang also becomes aware of Gaia's condition in the area, but in a very general sense - Gaia is pained, feels trapped, whatever. An avatar of Gaia teaches this Gift, but only to the worthy. Silver Fangs of any auspice may learn it, but it is most common among Theurges and those of House Wise Heart.

System: The Secret of Gaia is a more powerful version of the Theurge Gifts: Spirit Speech and Pulse of the Invisible. The player rolls Gnosis (difficulty 7) and spends one point of Gnosis to activate this Gift. The Garou becomes preternaturally aware of a one-mile radius for each success, almost becoming part of it. The Garou can automatically see into the Penumbra and all Perception rolls are at -3 difficulty. Furthermore, all local non-Wyrm spirits are well-disposed toward the character, granting +2 on all Social rolls involving them. Finally, one extra die is added to all Dice Pools (save those involving combat) while the Garou is in the higher state bestowed by this Gift. The Gift's effects last one hour for each point of permanent Gnosis the Garou possesses. If the player botches the roll, the character becomes acutely aware of Gaia's agonies and succumbs to the most severe pangs of Harano for an entire scene.
