Blessing of the First Pack (Rank 5)Edit

The Red Talons believe that the very first pack of Garou set the standards for the auspices, and that only the Talons retain a strong enough connection to that First Pack to use this Gift. This may or may not be true, but no non-Talon Garou has ever exhibited this mighty Gift (but then, very few among the Talons even know of it). To learn this Gift, the Talon must have at least one dot in Ancestors. The Garou calls upon her the originator of her auspice and is temporarily transformed into the pinnacle of her moon-sign. An avatar of Wolf or a powerful Lune may teach this Gift, but neither does so often.


The player spends two Gnosis poitns and rolls Charisma + Ancestors (difficulty 8). If the roll succeeds, the character becomes infused with the very essence of her auspice. For the remainder of the scene, the character receives five dots of Pure Breed in addition to any she already possesses. She may also make use of any auspice Gift for her particular auspice of level 4 or lower. In addition, Blessing of the First Pack grants power based on the character's auspice:

Auspice Bonus
Ragabash +3 to Stealth, +2 to Wits and Dexterity
Theurge +3 to Enigmas, +2 to Intelligence and Gnosis
Philodox +3 to Rituals, +2 to Manipulation and Stamina
Galliard +3 to Expression, +2 to Charisma and Strength
Ahroun +3 to Leadership, +2 to Strength and Rage
