Sing the Spirits (Rank 3)Edit

The earliest incantations to spirits were sung, and although the Theurges may be the auspice chosen to deal with them, the Galliards still know some songs with power in them. Such songs are many, but always have a similar construction. They begin by calling out the spirit's name, and ordering it to stay away, and finish with a threat issued against it if it doesn't. When done right, the spirit will be unable to approach the Galliard, or anyone she touches. The Gift is taught by a bird or fish-spirit.


The player spends one Gnosis and rolls Strength + Performance (difficulty 7). The spirit named must remain one meter per success away from the Galliard and anyone she is touching. The Galliard doesn't need to know the exact name of a spirit, but must be able to name it appropriately. (Telling it what kind of spirit it is, such as "Cat" or "Nexus Crawler" is sufficient.) The spirit may attempt to break through this ward by rolling their Rage, difficulty 8; they must receive more successes than the Galliard did on their Performance roll. The effects of this Gift last one scene.
