Kali's Tongue (Rank 2) Edit

In the days of ancient myth, the Wyrm-creature Raktabija terrorized the Indian subcontinent. Raktabija could not be slain; every drop of blood that touched the earth sprang up another Raktabija. Soon after the battle against him began, the field was crowded with Raktabijas, each eager for the blood of Garou and Gaian spirits. The mother-goddess Parvati (an aspect of Gaia) finally took to the field against Raktabija, in her guise as the hideous demon-warrior Kali. Kali spread her tongue out over the battlefield and prevented any of Raktabija's blood from striking the Earth; she then commanded the Garou and gods present to destroy the Wyrm-creature, which they did.

The Gift Kali's Tongue removes a creature's ability to heal damage; its effects are relatively short-term, but if a creature is destroyed while the Gift is in effect, that death is permanent. What the Mother gives, the Mother's vengeance can take away. This Gift is taught by a Cobra-spirit.

System Edit

The Fury must first touch the victim, then the player spends one Rage and rolls Manipulation + Medicine (difficulty of the foe's Rage, or Willpower -3, whichever is lower). Each success represents one turn during which the target creature cannot use any regenerative abilities, or heal inflicted damage naturally: Even supernatural healing Gifts like Mother's Touch will fail on the target during this period. This Gift works equally well on humans, Garou, and materialized spirits; spirits entirely in the Umbra are immune to the Gift's effects unless the Fury is also in the spirit world.
