Ma'at's Feather (Rank 1)Edit

According to Egyptian legend, if the heart of one of the dead was heavier than Ma'at's feather, she would feed it to the beast Ammit, destroying their soul entirely. If it was lighter, then the dead person was admitted to the afterlife. This Gift was first the province of the Silent Strider Philodox (and is still most common among that tribe), but has spread throughout all of Garou society. It allows the Philodox to sense the weight of a fallen Garou's soul and determine if he died as one of Gaia, or had fallen to the Wyrm. It is used to determine what rituals will be undertaken for the deceased, and is taught by a bird or lion-spirit.

SystemEdit

If the Garou died in the service of Gaia, the Gift works automatically, revealing this to be so. If, however, the Garou had betrayed the Mother, then a roll of the Philodox's Perception + Occult (difficulty of the deceased's former Gnosis) is needed to correctly determine their guilt. A simple success is sufficient, and the Storyteller is encouraged to roll secretly for each use of this Gift, to keep players guessing.
