Pointing the Bone (Rank 4)Edit

A common ritual among many native peoples, this Gift allows the Garou to inflict damage upon someone simply by pointing a decorated bone at her opponent. Often this Gift is used as a way of execution. A vulture or, in Australia, the snake-spirit Bobbi-Bobbi teaches this Gift.


The player spends one Gnosis, and rolls Perception + Occult, difficulty 7. Each success inflicts one aggravated health level of damage (which can be soaked if the target is normally able to soak aggravated damage) upon the target, after which the bone shatters. This Gift may also be used to inflict a delayed damage upon the victim. By spending an additional Gnosis point, the damage may suddenly occur a number of days after the attack equal to the successes rolled. This is most common when the Gift is used to execute an offender. Many victims, certain of their own death, are reduced to simply walking aimlessly in this time.
