Scent of Distinction (Rank 3)Edit

This Gift enables the Galliard to mystically "sniff out" the general spirit nature of her surroundings (i.e., influenced by the Weaver, Wyld or Wyrm; under the domain of a powerful Incarna; etc.), as well as the area's history. For example, a werewolf who sniffed out a caern might learn about the totem and purview of the caern, when it was founded, important events that happened near it, etc. This Gift is taught by a wolf-spirit.


To activate this Gift, the Garou must physically sniff out the area (in any form), meditate for 10 minutes or so, spend a Gnosis point, and roll Intelligence + either Streetwise (for urban areas) or Survival (for wilderness/rural areas). The Storyteller determines the difficulty. The Gift may be used over as large an area as the character can physically sniff, but information is more specific for smaller areas.
