One on One (Rank 6) Edit

The World of Darkness is a complex place, filled with intrigue, misdirection and all manner of supernatural evasion. Ahroun, however, are simpler beings and this Gift allows them to extend their direct methods where they might not otherwise reach. The Garou says a brief prayer to Luna and the other innumerable spirits of blood, terror and vengeance in the Garou pantheon. She is then transported instantly to a single foe of her choice, whom she may engage in one-to-one combat to the death under Luna's own aegis. The foe cannot flee (though tactical withdrawal with the specific intent of continuing the fight this scene is acceptable), nor can she receive aid from outsiders. The invoker is bound by same restrictions, of course.

Luna herself teaches this Gift, and not through an avatar - the petitioner must journey to Luna's court in the Aetherial Realm and convince the capricious goddess that her reasons for needing this power are just.

SystemEdit

This Gift cuts through all supernatural forms of warding, concealment, contigency spells and similar precautions without any roll. For the remainder of the scene, both affected parties can receive no aid from other sources, and can only use powers that are directly physical in nature. A vampire's unearthly strength and speed or a faerie's ability to strike at enemies with the spirit of holly would remain potent, but a member of either race would be stripped of his supernatural mind-clouding and unearthly presence. Likewise, a Namebreaker might throw lightning or increase his own strength, but not teleport away or turn incorporeal to avoid the Garou's strikes utterly.

This Gift involves the direct interference of the Celestine Luna in mortal affairs, and the Storyteller should remember that a thinking being is determining the Gift's exact effects, not a defined supernatural spell. The Storyteller should make judgment calls on the Gift's effects keeping it within its intended spirit of providing a fair, open and physical fight. A Garou asking to be transported to a vampire in torpor, for example, might find the Leech awake and ready to fight...

The Garou must expend a point of permanent Gnosis to activate this Gift. Once the fight is done, normal rules of reality reassert themselves - which might be bad if the Garou has been sent to Malfeas or some other hellish domain.
