Howl of Hunger (Rank 3)Edit

Wolves gorge themselves when they eat, especially during the cold winter months, because they cannot be sure when they will find food. Most humans know nothing of this kind of hunger, as they have their food handed to them. The Garou with this Gift can weaken any that hear her howl with crippling hunger.

This is a Howl gift of the Red Talons.


The player rolls Charisma + Intimidation (difficulty 7). If the roll succeeds, anyone within earshot of the werewolf's howl loses two dice from any mental and physical dice pools as their bodies are wracked with hunger pangs (the player may choose to spend a Gnosis point to leave the Red Talon's packmates unaffected). This Gift only functions on creatures that feel physical hunger for food - vampires and other dead things are unaffected. However, any Garou affected by this Gift must immediately check for frenzy (although even a Garou in frenzy is subject to the dice penalty due to weakness). Frenzied werewolves are likely to feast on any meat they can find if subject to the Howl of Hunger, much like homid Garou in the Thrall of the Wyrm. The effects of the Gift last for one scene.
