Truest Sacrament (Rank 2) Edit

The Order of Our Merciful Mother frequently leavens Christian ceremony with Gaian supplication, to better aid their flocks. Truest Sacrament enables them to do so without rousing the suspicion of the faithful; humans with faith in Christianity see Gaian ritual as innocuous and even appropriate, after this Gift's application. In so doing, the Furies are better able to free the most dogmatic and closed-minded followers of patriarchal faiths to accept a broader spiritual mindset. This Gift takes advantage of humans' ability to rewrite their memories of an event to suit their preconceptions in the same way that the Delirium does. This Gift is taught by a Unicorn-spirit.

Black Furies of the Order of Our Merciful Mother camp can learn this Gift.

System Edit

Truest Sacrament can be used either before or after a Gaian ritual begins. Used before a ritual, the character must make a Charisma + Subterfuge roll, with a target equal to the highest Willpower of the surrounding crowd; she will need to achieve one success for every seven onlookers. Should the Fury succeed, the next Gaian ritual she participates in will seem innocuous and appropriate to the crowd on hand. If Truest Sacrament is used during or after a ritual - if one or more humans happen upon a group of Garou during a rite - the same dice pool as above is used, but the character must also spend one point of Gnosis.

Note that Truest Sacrament will not cover up truly egregious or spectacular violations of the Veil - spattering blood, spirit fireworks, and so on, will be remembered and probably not thought of as harmless or normal. But if the rite is simpler, or the more hallucinatory effects can somehow be concealed from witnesses, the Furies may get away with it.

The salutatory effects of this Gift on the psyches of the most reactionary and closed-minded humans should be roleplayed out over time; there is no explicit game effect.
