Word-to-Weapon (Rank 2)Edit

The warrior-teacher caste of the Sacred Thread is able to focus in on the mystic power underlying each and every word. Even a ksatriya without a weapon may conjure one using nothing more than the sound of his own voice. This Gift is taught by a wind-spirit.

Stargazers of The Sacred Thread camp can learn this Gift.


The Stargazer invokes a prayer (taking a full turn to do so). The player then spends a Gnosis point and rolls Wits + Linguistics (difficulty 6). The first success conjures a ghostly, translucent scimitar out of thin air. The moon-curved blade has Strength base damage (lethal), with a difficulty of 7 to hit. Every two successes past the first, however, on the roll to activate this Gift increases the weapon's damage roll for that weapon. If the player rolls three successes, it creatures an opaque blade (made essentially of icy wind) that does Strength + 1 lethal damage, with a difficulty of 7 to hit. The weapon lasts until the end of the scene, and then it disappears into a cloud of dust.
