Seed of Speech (Rank 1)Edit

The spoke mantra for this Gift is Aum-Vak-Bija. It represents the primal nature of speech and gives the Stargazer using this Gift a preternatural understanding of the underlying force behind all words and names. Merely by intoning the mantra and activating this Gift, the Garou is capable of harmonizing with the very fundamental nature of spoken sound and the knowledge that comes with it. This Gift is taught by an avatar of Cuckoo.

This Gift is a Mantra Gift of the Stargazers.

SystemEdit

The player spends one Gnosis point after the Stargazer speaks the mantra. For the duration of the scene, the werewolf gains the ability to understand the basic subject/verb structure of all sentences spoken to him, regardless of the language used. For instance, "What are you doing here?" would translate (to the Stargazer) as "You do?"; or "Put down that idol," may translate to "You drop." This Gift only captures the most basic essence of a sentence spoken (the "seed"), but when being spoken to in a completely foreign tongue, this can make all the difference.
