Scent The Unnatural


Shadow Gift: Gift of Insight

Cost: 1 Essence
Duration: --
Dice Pool: Wits + Occult + Purity
Action: Instant

The Uratha who possesses this Facet can smell the tainted presence of creatures and powers that defy the natural order of Flesh and Shadow.

The Uratha can use this Facet to detect supernatural creatures and effects within 10
yards per dot of Purity Renown he possesses. Scent the Unnatural will not detect Uratha or the use of Gifts, nor will it detect spirits and their powers if in the Shadow. It will sense Ridden, Hosts, vampires, ghouls, mages, and other supernatural creatures, as well as active spells, items, enchantments, or other powers of such creatures.

Dramatic Failure: The Uratha gains the Ban Condition. He must carry a scented or perfumed object with him and must breathe from it at least once per scene.
Failure: The Facet fails.
Success: The Uratha catches scent of a supernatural presence nearby. Each success indicates a single supernatural being or effect that is in the Facet’s range, including where it is (and, in the case of an effect or power, what area it covers). The Facet offers no further information about the supernatural being’s true nature, except for Hosts and Claimed. The Uratha becomes immediately aware of the latter’s classification, although the Facet does not specify what type of Host, or what spirit is Claiming a victim.
Exceptional Success: The Uratha gains the specific scent of the supernatural individuals or effects nearby, and will easily recognize them without requiring the use of this Facet should he encounter them again.
