Kataribe Gifts

Rank One

Beast Speech (Level One)
As the Galliard Gift.

Fable (Level One)
The Kataribe uses her expression and will to sway onlookers. By telling a tale or singing a song, she can plant a suggestion in the minds and hearts of listeners. Nightingale-spirits teach this Gift.

System: The player spends a Willpower point and rolls Manipulation + Empathy (difficulty 7) to plant a faint compulsion in the listener’s head, which lingers for the Kitsune’s Chie in days. Recordings and broadcasts cannot carry this Gift’s magic.

• Perfect Recall (Level One)
As the Galliard Gift.

• Truth of Gaia (Level One)
As the Philodox Gift.

Rank Two

Centipede’s Beckoning (Level Two)
As the Galliard Gift: Call of the Wyrm.

Distractions (Level Two)
As the Galliard Gift.

Silence (Level Two)
The werefox blankets the area in an eerie silence. Lake- and mountain-spirits teach this Gift.

System: The player spends two Gnosis points and rolls Manipulation + Stealth, difficulty 8. The area affected is 5 yards in radius per success. The Gift lasts for one scene

Speech of the World (Level Two)
As the homid Gift.

Rank Three

Seek (Level Three)
The Kitsune asks the local spirits for a single individual’s location. The spirits answer correctly if they can; should the individual be beyond their territory, they say as much. The spirits of predatory animals teach this Gift.

System: The player spends a Gnosis point to contact an appropriate spirit, and rolls Wits + Occult, difficulty 6, to beseech its help.

Uzume Sings (Level Three)
The Kataribe’s voice becomes achingly beautiful, paralyzing an enemy or luring him forward to his doom. Nightingale- and snake-spirits teach this Gift.

System: The player spends one Gnosis point and rolls Charisma + Performance (difficulty of the target’s Willpower). For every success, the target is under the Fox’s power for one turn.

Wisdom of the Ancient Ways (Level Three)
As the Philodox Gift: Wisdom of the Ancient Ways.

Rank Four

Kuei Dance (Level Four)
This Gift calls on the dead to bear witness. There is no compulsion, but the dead are eager to be remembered, so rarely refuse. The spell may take any form, from story to song to dance, with the ghost acting out her part as appropriate. This Gift is taught by ancestor-spirits.

System: The player spends a Willpower point and rolls Gnosis + Empathy, difficulty 8, to establish contact. This Gift works only if the deceased lingers in some spiritual form, such as a ghost or ancestor-spirit. The more successes rolled, the more coherent the ghost’s performance.

Shadows by the Firelight (Level Four)
As the Galliard Gift.

Rank Five

Assimilation (Level Five)
As the homid Gift.

Fabric of the Mind (Level Five)
As the Galliard Gift.
