Indian Giver (Rank 2)Edit

Sometimes, one must give information to get information. Perhaps an explanation is necessary to get the curious to go away. However, the Uktena are notoriously tightfisted with secrets. With this Gift, the Uktena can share a bit of knowledge that later vanishes from the subject's memory. An ancestor-spirit teaches this Gift. Both Raiders and Pathdancers commonly learn this Gift, though it can be found throughout the tribe.


When telling the choice bit of lore, the player rolls Wits + Subterfuge (difficulty is the opponent's Wits + Subterfuge). The number of successes, shown below, determines the effects of the gift. The Uktena decides beforehand how long the knowledge remains clear, but never longer than 24 hours.

Success Effect
Botch Secret retained with unusual clarity
One Secret becomes elusive and garbled
Two Secret is maddeningly beyond reach
Three Subject forgets he was told the secret
Four Subject's own part in discussion is vague
Five Subject forgets the conversation took place
