Truce of Helios (Rank 2)Edit

Helios brings reason and tact to the werewolves who honor him. He teaches the Garou to temper their instinct and Rage with thought and logic. Thus, those who follow him often become skilled diplomats and negotiators. Often the biggest problem in achieving a truce, treaty or alliance is getting the other side to listen to the argument that the character is putting forward. This Gift forces them to listen to what the Silver Fang has to say. However, Helios values truth and justice. He does not force the listener to accept what is said. Neither does he allow his followers to use this Gift to gain a combat advantage over another by using it to delay the listener while an ambush or attack is organized. Any werewolf using the Gift in that way will find that it doesn't work, and may find it never working for them again. Helios sends a Child of Karnak or a Firebird spirit to teach this Gift to those he finds worthy.

Silver Fangs of the Sun Lodge can learn this Gift.


To enforce a truce, the player spends a point of Gnosis and rolls Charisma + Etiquette (difficulty 7). If the roll succeeds, the negotiation proceeds under the force of a spiritually imposed peace. All those involved in the debate must make a Willpower roll (difficulty 9, minimum of two successes needed) to attack the speaker, ignore him or otherwise disrupt the proceedings. The truce endures for one hour per success rolled. However, should the Silver Fang calling upon this Gift break the truce, its effects immediately end and will never be effective against the same target again. Doing this is a terrible insult to Helios and results in the loss of three points of temporary Honor and may lead to the character's expulsion from the Sun Lodge.
