Heavens Unleashed


Shadow Gift: Gift of Weather

Cost: 5 Essence
Duration: 1 hour per success
Dice Pool: Presence + Survival + Glory
Action: Extended (10 successes; each roll represents 1 minute)

A howl to the heavens is answered by rolling thunder and the rage of the storm.

Dramatic Failure: The Uratha gains the Ban Condition. He is compelled to be loud and constantly making noise; silence of any kind disquiets him intensely and he seeks to break it.
Failure: The Uratha accumulates no successes and gains the Stumbled Condition.
Success: Successes are accumulated. If the target is met, the sky unleashes a torrential downpour, punctuated by the snarl and crack of roiling lightning. Even if the sky was previously clear and blue, clouds race from the horizon in a black thunderhead to deliver the Facet’s effects. Characters caught in the storm suffer a penalty to their Speed and Initiative equal to the Uratha’s Glory Renown. If Cloak of Mist and Haze is also used during the storm, that Facet’s effects cause the sheer deluge of rain to become overwhelming to the senses.
Note that Heavens Unleashed drenches the area in rain, which may cause other effects: rivers flowing over their banks, cellars flooding, and similar property damage or destruction. While unlikely to be as destructive as the Catastrophe Facet, repeated use of Heavens Unleashed can have very serious results.
Exceptional Success: The storm also inflicts a penalty on uses of the Allies, Contacts, Retainer, Staff, and Status Merits to get aid or help during the Facet’s duration.
