Silent Striders

Driven out of Egypt a long time ago, these wanderers are the holders of the forbidden, descendants of the prophets. They read long forgotten languages, and signs as we would read a book. They see omens and portents more clearly than any other and are quite often advisors. They are the carriers of the soul beyond death.

GIFTS

Sense Wyrm (Level One) — The Garou can sense manifestations of the Wyrm in the nearby area.

This Gift is taught by any spirit servant of Gaia.

Attunement (Level Four) — This Gift is similar to the Bone Gnawer Gift, but may be used only in the wilderness. By standing in a particular area, the character can commune with the spirits of the area, thus getting an overview of what exists or has happened in the area – rough population, secret traits, places of note and so on. This Gift is taught by an Owl-spirit.
System: The Garou spends one Gnosis point and rolls Perception + Survival (difficulty 6). The amount of in, formation gained depends in the number of successes; on a botch, the spirits lie.

System: The Garou spends one Gnosis point for every 100 miles she wishes to travel, and rolls Intelligence + Alertness (difficulty depends on the distance of the journey and the accuracy with which she knows her destination – up to 10 for a far journey to an unknown place). Success enables the Garou to travel to that place instantly. She will be disoriented for a turn upon arrival unless she scored at least three successes. A botch means that the character is hurled through space in a random direction, arriving far from her destination (or even high in the air … ). The Garou may take others with her by spending one Gnosis point per person.

Reach the Umbra (Level Five) — The Garou may pierce the Gauntlet and instantly travel to the Umbra at will, without the need for a reflective surface. This Gift is taught by an Owl-spirit.
