Bone Gnaw

Purity

Shadow Gift: Gift of Death

Cost: 1 Essence
Duration: 1 scene
Dice Pool: --
Action: Instant

Crack the bone, eat the marrow, and chew the splintered fragments down. There’s power to be had there.

By devouring or gnawing on human or werewolf bones, the Uratha can use this Facet to gain one of the following benefits. It doesn’t matter how old the bone is, but it must be relatively intact, and it is consumed or destroyed in the process. If the bone is fresh, this Gift is a violation of the Oath of the Moon, but if it’s stripped of meat and more than six months old, it has lost any of its previously tempting flavor.

  • Basic knowledge of the dead: name, age, sex, if he was ill or poisoned or drugged when he died, the broadest strokes of his life. The Uratha also becomes aware of the rough time and date of his death, although the older the bones the more vague it gets.
  • A single secret or piece of knowledge that the dead deemed important in life. This requires the Uratha to succeed at a Presence + Empathy + Purity roll to discern a specific piece of desired information. If the dead left a ghost and it is present, it may contest this roll with its Resistance.
  • If the bone comes from a human, the Uratha may temporarily gain one dot in the highest Skill possessed by the dead, lasting for one scene.
  • If the bone comes from a werewolf, the Uratha may temporarily gain one dot in the highest Renown possessed by the dead, lasting for one scene.
