Take the True Form (Rank 4)Edit

Any Garou, even the youngest cub, is deadly in Crinos form. Philodox charged with calming and keeping order among their people find this Gift a blessing for when tempers are at their peak. It forces a subject back into their breed form, which usually cancels a frenzy. Others have used it on allies the moment before they are attacked with silver in an attempt to abate the damage, or on enemies to gain a combat advantage. Some wolf-spirits teach this Gift, as do any animal spirits that change their form to show threat, such as pufferfish or frill-necked lizard-spirits.


The player rolls Manipulation + Primal-Urge, resisted by the target's Stamina. If successful, the target automatically and instantly assumes their breed form and must remain in it for a number of turns equal to the number of successes achieved. This Gift works on any creature that shapeshifts, such as Fera or vampires.
