PostSubject: Ragabash Gifts   Tue Oct 19, 2010 12:08 am

The Ragabash were blessed by Luna with the wit to question rigid tradition and the cunning to use stealth and trickery against the Garou's enemies. The New Moons' Gifts allow them to get the job done in a clever, unconventional fashion.

• Blur of the Milky Eye (Level One) — The Garou's form becomes a shimmering blur, allowing him to pass unnoticed among others. Once the Garou has been seen, however, this Gift is negated until the viewer has again been distracted. A chameleon-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The player rolls Manipulation Stealth (difficulty Cool. Although he doesn't become truly invisible, each success increases the difficulties of all Perception rolls made to detect him by one.

• Open Seal (Level One) — With this Gift, the Garou can open nearly any sort of closed or locked physical device. A raccoon-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The player rolls Gnosis (difficulty of the local Gauntlet rating).

• Scent of Running Water (Level One) — The Garou can mask her scent completely, making herself virtually impossible to track. A fox-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The difficulties of all rolls to track the Garou increase by two. This Gift becomes an innate ability to the Garou who learns it. She need not expend any points or make any rolls. However, the Ragabash may still leave a scent behind if she decides to do so voluntarily (which may be necessary to blend in with wolf packs).

• Blissful Ignorance (Level Two) — The Garou can become completely invisible to all senses, spirits or monitoring devices by remaining still. A chameleon-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The Garou's player rolls Dexterity Stealth (difficulty 7). Each success subtracts one success from the Perception Alertness rolls of those looking for the character actively. If no one is doing so, then just one success indicates complete concealment.

• Sense of the Prey (Level Two) — If he knows anything about his prey, the character can track it down as rapidly as he can travel. This unerring sense of direction operates anywhere, and it is useful for tracking spirits through the Umbra as well as finding beings on Earth. A wolf- or dog-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: No roll is required unless the target is hiding actively (intent alone is not enough), in which case a Perception Enigmas roll is made against a difficulty of the target's Wits Stealth. If the target is a spirit, the difficulty is the spirit's Gnosis.

• Taking the Forgotten (Level Two) — The Ragabash with this Gift can steal something from a target, and his victim will forget that she ever possessed the stolen item. A mouse-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The player must score three successes on a Wits Stealth roll (difficulty of the victim's Intelligence Streetwise).

• Gremlins (Level Three) — The Ragabash can cause a technological device to malfunction, merely by touching it. This Gift actually disrupts the spirit energy within the device that aids its function. If the Garou can frighten the spirit sufficiently, it will flee the device, causing it to malfunction permanently. A Gremlin teaches this Gift.

System: The player rolls Manipulation Intimidation; the difficulty is determined by the complexity of the item. The more successes the Garou obtains, the more the device is damaged. Five successes disable the device permanently (the spirit has fled). Good roleplaying might certainly warrant one to three additional dice at the discretion of the Storyteller.

• Open Moon Bridge (Level Three) — The Garou has the ability to open a moon bridge, with or without the permission of the totem of that caern. A Lune teaches this Gift.

System: The player spends one Gnosis point. See the Rite of the Open Bridge for more information on opening moon bridges. The maximum distance that can thereby be covered is 1,000 miles.

• Luna's Blessing (Level Four) — When the moon is visible in the night sky, silver refuses to cause the Garou aggravated wounds. Indeed, if the moon waxes full, silver weapons may well turn on those who would wield them against the character. A Lune teaches this Gift.

System: For each strike against the Garou, the wielder of the weapon must roll three extra dice on the attack; these dice are read only to check for botches. The Garou can soak and regenerate silver as if it were bashing or lethal damage (depending on whether the silver is part of an edged weapon or not), but only when the moon is in a visible phase above the horizon. Therefore, the Garou is still vulnerable during a new moon.

• Whelp Body (Level Four) — With this Gift a Garou may deliver a devastating curse upon a foe's body, causing it to weaken or palsy. Many consider the use of this power on a foe to be a declaration of unending war. Either a pain-spirit or a spirit of disease teaches this Gift.

System: The player spends one Gnosis point and rolls Gnosis, and the target resists with his own Gnosis roll. The Garou's difficulty is the opponent's Willpower, while her victim's difficulty is the Ragabash's Gnosis. (Victims without Gnosis roll Stamina without any adjustments for supernatural powers or the like.) Each success scored by the Ragabash allows him to remove one point from any of the victim's Physical Attributes. The effect is permanent, although the victim may restore these Attributes via experience. This Gift may be used only once ever against a given opponent.

• Thieving Talons of the Magpie (Level Five) — The Garou can steal the powers of others and use them herself. These powers can be Garou Gifts, spirit Charms, vampiric Disciplines, True Magic or any other such power. Naturally, a magpie-spirit teaches this Gift.

System: The player must gain three successes on a Wits Stealth roll (difficulty of the target's Willpower). If successful, the Ragabash can use the specified power (and the victim cannot) for each successive turn she is willing to spend a Gnosis point. The werewolf's Gnosis is substituted for any Traits exclusive to the victim that might be necessary to work the power, such as a vampire's blood pool or a mage's Arete. The Ragabash must know something about his target's powers, and he must target a power in the terms by which he would understand it.

• Thousand Forms (Level Five) — Most trickster archetypes are shapeshifters, and the Ragabash is no different. The Garou with this Gift may change herself into any animal between the sizes of a small bird and a bison. The Garou gains all the special powers (flight, gills, poison, sensory abilities, etc.) of the animal she mimics. She may not take the form of Wyrm-beasts (not that she would wish to!), but she may take the form of mythical beasts with some extra effort.


System: The player spends a Gnosis point and rolls Intelligence Animal Ken. The difficulty varies, rising higher the farther removed from the Garou's natural form the desired animal is. For example, an ape or panther (mammals of roughly equal mass) might be difficulty 5, while an alligator (a reptile of slightly larger size) would be difficulty 7, and a frog (a much smaller amphibian) would be difficulty 9. Mimicking mythical animals is always difficulty 10.
