Impunity (Rank 3) Edit

One of the Ragabash's jobs is to voice uncomfortable truths. Unfortunately, not all tolerate that role, and those who most need to hear the truth are often least willing to listen. No Moons must be quick on their feet to avoid a furious elder who's been called on the carpet by a subordinate. With this Gift, the Garou may tell a respected leader he screwed up without becoming the dead messenger. The Gift is taught by a cat-spirit.

System Edit

By succeeding in a Charisma + Subterfuge roll (difficulty 6), the Ragabash can avoid the worst repercussions of his statements. The target(s) must make a Willpower roll (difficulty 6 plus the No Moon's successes) to punish or attack the speaker for the rest of the scene. Each attempted use of this Gift in the span of a lunar month adds an additional +1 to the No Moon's difficulty. Note that whatever the Ragabash says must be clearly and completely true from the user's point of view - no prevarication or double entendres are possible. For example, "Your nephew broke the Litany" would work if said Garou ate a policeman, but not if he failed to respect a Black Spiral's territory. (Though a simple opinion, such as "You're being an idiot," is acceptable if heartfelt). The Storyteller is the final arbiter. If the Ragabash attempts to misuse this impressive Gift, not only will he not realize it didn't work until after he speaks, but Cat will make her displeasure evident.
