Spirit Speech (Rank 1) Edit
This Gift allows the Garou to communicate with encountered spirits. The Garou is thus able to address them whether they wish to be addressed or not. Of course, nothing (usually) prevents the spirit from ignoring the Theurge or leaving. Any spirit can teach this Gift.
Once learned, this Gift allows the Garou to understand the communication of spirits intuitively. Particularly alien spirits may be difficult - or, in the case of many Banes, outright painful - to understand.
