Splintered Claw (Rank 3)Edit

This painful Gift causes the metis' claws to splinter as they pierce flesh. Tiny bits of claw imbed themselves deep in the victim's body, thus causing tremendous irritation. Healing such a wound without first removing the splinters is both painful and stupid. Unfortunately, the Gift's user loses her claws until she spends a round regenerating new ones. A Tree-spirit teaches this Gift. Glass Walkers or Bone Gnawers can learn this Gift from spirits living in houses or other wooden constructs.


After a successful attack that causes at least one Health Level of damage, the Garou may spend a Rage point to activate the Gift. Any danger that the target does not soak cannot be healed until he removes the bits of claw. As with all other werewolf related claw attacks, the wounds are aggravated.

The attacking Garou receives one automatic, nonaggravated wound. The werewolf cannot soak this wound but can heal it as normal. Until the Garou heals the wound, he has no claws.
