General Kitsune Gifts

Rank One

Chi Sense (Level One)
The Kitsune may sense the ebb and flow of Yin and Yang through the world around her. This Gift is taught by any spirit of the Middle Kingdom.

System: The player permanently adds one die to any Gift or Rite which inspects or alters the environment around the Kitsune.

Ishin Deshin (Level One)
As the Galliard Gift: Mindspeak.

Scent of Running Water (Level One)
As the Ragabash Gift.

Rank Two

Moon Dance (Level Two)
The Kitsune becomes completely invisible so long as no moonlight touches her. She may step in and out of moonlight, appearing and vanishing as she does. Lunes teach this Gift, which cannot be used during the daytime.

System: The player spends one Gnosis point. The effect lasts the entire night. The Gift doesn’t mask the Kitsune from any sense save sight.

Sense Magic (Level Two)
As the Uktena Gift.

Spirit Speech (Level Two)
As the Theurge Gift.

Rank Three

Ghost Speech (Level Three)
This Gift allows Kitsune to speak with inhabitants of the Yin Realm — the Dark Umbra. It is taught by ancestor-spirits and spirits associated with death.

System: The Kitsune may speak in a tone that carries across into the Yin Realm, and hear any responses to her words.

Puppeteer’s Secret (Level Three)
The Fox fades into the crowd; everyone assumes she belongs, and that her familiar face has been there for quite some time. Deer-spirits teach this Gift.

System: The player rolls Charisma + Subterfuge, difficulty 6. If the Kitsune begins to act suspiciously given her attire and the situation, or otherwise draws attention to herself, the Storyteller may demand a fresh roll to keep the Gift from breaking.

Rank Four

Shadow-Fan-Flowers (Level Four)
One creature within the Kitsune’s line of sight sees a vision and believes. The illusion is perfectly detailed with color, light, and motion. Chimerlings teach this Gift.

System: The player spends a point of Gnosis and rolls Manipulation + Enigmas (difficulty of the victim’s Willpower). Supernatural targets may roll Willpower (difficulty 9) to realize the illusion is false only if given compelling reason to suspect its falsity.

Rank Five

Possession (Level Five)
The Kitsune abandons her body to take over another’s. This Gift is taught by one of Fox’s brood.

System: The Kitsune must be in contact with the victim, the victim’s hair or nail cuttings, or an extremely important personal token of the victim. The player spends a point of Gnosis and Willpower, then rolls Manipulation + Occult (difficulty of the victim’s Willpower). If successful, the Fox becomes a spirit and possesses her victim; supernatural targets may roll Stamina + Occult (difficulty of Kitsune’s Willpower) each day at sunrise to attempt to exorcise the Fox. The Kitsune returns to her own body when she is cast out or ends the possession.
