The Garou Guide


1)Introduction

Introduction of the Garou
A Garou is another name for a werewolf or lycan. Garou are half spirit half human supernatural beings that have a deep connection with Gaia. The Garou believe that they are the guardians of Gaia against the Weaver and the Wyrm. In this guide we will talk about the basic workings of Garou society, powers and types to help you better your understanding of this race.

The litany

Garou Shall Not Mate with Garou
Combat the Wyrm Wherever It Dwells and Whenever It Breeds
Respect the Territory of Another
Accept an Honorable Surrender
The First Share of the Kill for the Greatest of Station
Submission to Those of Higher Station
Respect for Those beneath Ye - All Are of Gaia
Ye Shall Not Eat the Flesh of Humans
The Veil Shall Not Be Lifted
Do Not Suffer Thy People to Tend Thy Sickness
The Leader May Be Challenged at Any Time during Peace
The Leader May Not Be Challenged during Wartime
Ye Shall Take No Action That Causes a Caern to Be Violated


Gnosis 
Gnosis is similar to the concept of chi in Eastern societies. Gnosis is a spiritual energy that is in the Garou, it can be used to bribe spirits, activate fetishes, use gifts or enter the Umbra. Gnosis is renewable by meditating, going to sacred sites or bargaining with spirits.



Shifting 
Shifting is when a Garou goes from his human form into his wolf form. The wolf form varies on breed, but all Garou look the same in human form. Clothes and fetishes meld in with the body when shifting; however other items do not and will fall to the ground, unless the proper Rite is done.

Rage

It is a gift of madness from Luna (the Moon) that allows the Garou to do truly spectacular things. Too much Rageis bad and will break loose in frenzy, a maddened state where the Garou loses all control, either Berserking or Foxing. In a Berserk the Garou attacks everything in sight, friend or foe. In Fox, the Garou flees in terror and will do anything to get away. 

The new Rage system.

When you shapeshift you need Rage. Without rage you're not able to shapeshift. Rage is like inspiration. After you shapeshift rage will cause you to be more aggressive, so you won't be able to control yourself that much. This means you don't shapeshift for roaming around in public, only when you really need it. The werewolf form is a combat form, not a mess around form. For werewolves like Conspirator, we can discuss something, and we can fix something out. Rage vary from one auspice to the other.

Garou age 
Garou are not immortal, but do live a very long time. They age like humans until the age of First Change, the age process then slows to 1 year for every 25 human years. A Garou's maximum life span is on average 1500 years, but most Garou are killed long before then.


The First Change 
Garou undergo their first transformation at around the same time they go through puberty, usually 11 – 14.


Frenzy 
Garou can be put through a very dangerous state called Frenzy, where they lose control and go berserk, attacking everything in sight. Frenzy can be triggered when a wolf goes without fresh meat for too long, a lunar eclipse happens, under too much stress or becoming too far enraged. What wolves do while in Frenzy depends on their breed.


Breed Frenzies

Lupus:Garou in Thrall will attack their own fallen pack mates and deliberately try to kill them.

Homid:Garou in Thrall will attempt to devour the flesh of fallen comrades and foes, engaging in cannibalism.

Metis:Garou in Thrall will rape fallen pack members and foes and engage in necrophilia.


2)The Triat

The Triat
The Triat are the three spiritual forces that rule over the physical plain as we know it. The Triat is divided into three separate entities, each one having power over chaos, order, creation and destruction.

The entities 

The Wyld: The Wyld is raw creation without order.

The Weaver : The Weaver spins creation into a pattern, creating order.

The Wyrm: The Wyrm destroys any excess order or chaos.


The Garou’s beliefs 
The story is that the Weaver was overcome with madness and began trying to spin all of reality into its web, including the Wyrm. This made the Wyrm insane and its goal became not to balance the world, but to destroy it. In the eyes of some Garou the Weaver is to blame for spinning the world into a downwards spiral, while some blame the Wyrm for trying to destroy everything. Either way the Wyrm supposedly manifests itself in the form of any who seek the death of Gaia, it is the Garou’s job to destroy this evil and keep balance. Or so they say.


3)Breeds.

A Garou's breed 
The Garou unlike the vampires are able to breed, but as they can take on two forms they have three mates to choose from, either a wolf, a Garou or a human. Depending on who the offspring is sired by will decide their breed.

Breed types 
Homid: These are Garou who were raised in human society, never knowing their heritage until their First Change. They often have trouble dealing with the wilderness and the spirit world. They are however deeply knowledgeable of human society and understand most technology. Homids are the most common breed. 
Garou - Human.

Metis: These are the deformed and sterile offspring of two Garou. They are perhaps the best balanced of the breeds being equally likely to understand the wilderness or human technology. Additionally, their natural form is Crinos, the man-wolf form, granting them great battle prowess. They have the advantage of being raised in Garou society and thus know it’s often quirky ins and outs. Once they were the rarest of the breeds. It's a sign of how desperate things have become that in some tribes, they are more common than Lupus. 
Garou - Garou.
Metis deformities are
- albino
- blind
- chitinous skin
- deaf 
- fits of madness
- fragile claws/loose teeth 
- hairless
- horns/hooves
- hunchback
- no sense of smell 
- weak immune system
- withered limb


Lupus : These are born of wolves and have a deep primal connection to Gaia. However, they are sadly out of place in the human world, having little understanding of human society. Some never even learn to speak a human language. Most hate technology and often blame humans for all that is wrong in the world.
Garou - Wolf.


4)Auspicies

A Garou’s auspice is decided by which moon he is born under and gives them their main characteristics and nature. There are five different auspices with different characteristics.


Ragabash: Those born beneath the new moon are the tricksters and fools of Garou society. They challenge the Garou's traditional ways in order to help discard traditions that are outdated. Their tricks and pranks teach wisdom and humility to those who would listen. However, most Garou have little respect for the role of the Ragabash and consider them little more than pranksters.

(http://whitewolf.wikia.com/wiki/Ragabash )

Theurge: Those born beneath the crescent moon are the mystics and seers of the Garou. They have a natural affinity with the spirits and can speak with them, either persuading them to join their cause or forcing them to do their bidding like sorcerers. They are often associated with healing as well.

(http://whitewolf.wikia.com/wiki/Theurge )

Philodox: Those born under the half moon are the arbitrators and judges of the Garou. They are charged with keeping the traditions of the Garou. However, they also strive for balance and harmony amidst the hot tempers of Garou. They are often jacks-of-all trades and can speak with the spirits almost as well as a Theurge, yet fight just as well as an Ahroun. The Philodox are the traditional leaders of the Garou.

(http://whitewolf.wikia.com/wiki/Philodox )

Galliard : Those born beneath the gibbous moon are filled with passion that bursts forth in glorious song and hot tempers. They are the warrior-bards of legend taking time out from their art to fight and from their fighting to sing rousing tales. They are often joyous and make good company, usually.

(http://whitewolf.wikia.com/wiki/Galliard )

Ahroun: Those born beneath the full moon are the natural warriors of the Garou. No Garou is incompetent at fighting, but the Ahrouns excel at it. They often lead the Garou during times of war or when there are no Philodox in the pack.

(http://whitewolf.wikia.com/wiki/Ahroun )

5)Abilities 

The basic abilities of a werewolf, as used in VHRP are listed here: http://vhrp.forumsrpg.com/t856-werewolves-and-their-abilities


The Gifts 
The Garou are bestowed with Gifts that are somewhat like spells and range from many types of abilities such as creating fire to the ability to speak with animals. Each Garou has one breed Gift and auspice Gift. A Garou can change his Gift by using a Rite and meeting the requirements to learn that Gift.


A * means the Gift is used only in wolf form, a ~ means the Gift is used in human form only.

If there is no sign before the gift, then you can use the gift in both forms.


To make it easier to notice:

Green: Can be used in human form.

Orange: Can be used in the wolf form.

Blue: Can be used in both forms.


Changing Gifts
In order for a Garou to change Gifts, he must summon or find a spirit who knows the Gift he is seeking and get that spirit to somehow teach him the Gift.

Note: Remember to put the level of the gift after it.


Gifts and Gnosis

In order to use a gift you need to spend Gnosis. Loss of Gnosis can lead to a Garou to feel weaker. How much Gnosis is lost for a gift depends on the effect of the gift. For example if a Theurge uses the Mother of Touch gift on serious wounds the Garou will loose more Gnosis while in a light wound the Garou will loose less.

If you make an attack, the effect of this Gift wears off. This Gift is taught by any spirit servant of Gaia.

*Burrow (Level Two) -- The Garou can burrow a tunnel into the earth. The tunnel is relatively permanent, and others can follow the Garou through it, although it is tight and only one person at a time can go through.

*Awaken Beast (Level Three) -- This is the old ability out of legends and folklore: the power to change someone else into a werewolf by biting him. The metis must also spend a Gnosis point. If successful, the Beast is awakened in the victim and he will begin to frenzy. This Gift is taught by an Ancestor-spirit.


*Body Shift (level Four) -- The Garou can use her shape shifting to alter her physical Traits.

Wither Limb (Level Four) -- The Garou can cause a target's limb, making it useless. Which limb is withered is the Garou's choice, but it must be an arm or leg.

In addition, the lupus carries her "territory" around with her, in a mystical sense. Wolves will detect this, and concede her right to travel through their territories and hunt there. Even other lupus must make a Willpower roll not to recognize this right. Other animals will also recognize this, and not attack the intruder. This Gift is taught by a spirit servent of Gaia.

Who knows -- there are rumors of surviving dinosaurs in the deep Congo. This Gift is taught by a Nature-spirit. 

Boon of the Animal Fathers (Lupus Level Five)-By entreaty to a specific Animal Father, the Garou can gain that specific animal totem. If the Garou entreaties Father Moose, the Garou can gain Moose as his totem, gaining all the benefits as if she were allied to that totem. This does not give the special powers granted by the metis gift Totem Gift, only the regular benefits of a totem alliance. The Animal Fathers are believed to be different, more specific, aspects of the animal totems.

Exorcism (Level Three) This is the Gift of ejecting spirits from places or objects, whether they are there voluntarily or are bound there. This Gift is taught by any Incarna avatar. 

Pulse of the Invisible (Level Three) Spirits fills the world around the Garou, and none know this better than the Theurge. Those Garou with Pulse of the Invisible remain constantly aware of all that spirits do around them and can interact with them at will. While most of what occurs is barely worth watching, the Garou will be aware of any dramatic changes. This Gift is taught by any spirit.

Grasp the Beyond (Level Four) The Garou may take things to and from the Umbra without having to Dedicate them to herself. This includes humans and animals, both willing and unwilling.

Beast Speech (Level One) The Garou may speak to animals, from pigeons in the park to beavers at their dam or fish in the sea. This does not change their basic reactions a hungry tiger is still hungry and may well attack. This Gift is taught by a Nature-spirit. 

*Call of the Wyld (Level One) The Garou can summon others by howling; Garou far beyond the range of hearing will sense the Call and may come to aid. This Gift can enhance the effect of any of the normal Garou howls. This howl can also be sounded to summon specific Garou for a moot. Finally, Call of the Wyld is often used at the beginning of revels and other events, to invigorate the Garou. This Gift is taught by a Wolf-spirit. 

Mind Speak (Level One) Through the creation of waking dreams, the Garou can place any chosen characters into silent communion. All those included in the dream may interact normally through the Mind Speak, though they can inflect no damage through it. Their real bodies can still act. The Mind Speak ends when all the participants want it to. The beings affected must be within line of sight. This gift is taught by a Chimerling. 

Call of the Wyrm (Level Two) This dangerous Gift actually attracts creatures of the Wyrm. This Gift is usually used to create an ambush or to flush prey from hiding. This gift is taught by any spirit servant of Gaia. 

*Distractions (Level Two) The Garou can make annoying yips, yelps and howls to divert the attention of his target. This Gift is taught by a Coyote-spirit.

Dream Speak (Level Two) The Garou enters anothers dream and can thereby affect the course of that dream. The Garou does not have to be anywhere near the target, but must know or have seen the dreamer. This Gift is taught by a Chimerling.

*Eye of the Cobra (Level Three) With but a look, the Garou can attract anyone to his side. This Gift is taught by a Snake-spirit.

Song of Rage (Level Three) This Gift unleashes the Beast in others, forcing Garou and vampires into frenzy and turning humans into berserkers. This Gift is taught by a Wolverine- or Wolf-spirit. 

*Bridge Walker (Level Four) The Galliard has the ability to create minor Moon Bridges through which she alone can travel. The Garou travels between the ends of this moon Bridge in one percent of the time it would to travel that distance normally, allowing her to disappear from in front of a foe and reappear instantly behind it. Note that these Moon Bridges are not protected by Lunes and occasionally attract the interest of spirit creatures; these beings have been known to follow the Garou into the physical world This Gift is taught by a Lune. 

~Shadows by the Fire Light (Level Four) The Garou creates interactive stories which others take part, willingly or not. Usually this power is used at a moot when telling old stories, allowing those who take part in the story to enact the tales. However, this Gift can also be sued on the unwilling, forcing them to participate in a story of the Garous choosing. This Gift is taught by an Ancestor-spirit. 

Fabric of the Mind (Level Five) Garou with this Gift can bring their imaginations to life, creating a Dream Being from the fabric of their thought. This Gift is taught by a Chimerling. 

Head Games (Level Five) Other werewolves always accuse Galliards of being manipulative and playing with their emotions, but those Garou with the Gift of Head Games do it like nobody else. The Galliard can chance and control the emotions of those to whom she speaks. She could cause someone to fall in love with her (this won’t last, and the victims love may turn into justified resentment) or cause another to befriend her (again, this won’t last, but a genuine friendship could still develop). This Gift is taught by a Coyote-spirit.

Philodox 



*Resist Pain (Level One) Through force of will, the Garou is able to ignore the pain of his wounds and continue acting normally for 30 seconds. This Gift is taught by a Bear-spirit.

*Scent of the True Form (Level One) This Gift allows the Garou to determine what a subject really is. This information is conveyed as an olfactory sensation it is actually a scent of the targets true nature. This Gift is taught by any spirit servant of Gaia.


Truth of Gaia (Level One) Philodox, as judges of the Litany, has the ability to sense whether others have spoken truth of falsehood. This Gift is taught by a Falcon or Gaffling-spirit. 

Call to Duty (Level Two) The Garou can summon spirits if she knows their names, and may give them one command. Only one command may be given; after it is carried out, the spirits will depart. Spirit names can be discovered either through personal acquaintance of the Gift: Name the Spirit (Lupus and Theurge). This Gift is taught by an Incarna avatar. 

King of the Beasts (Level Two) Specific animals, generally ones with which the Garou regularly associates; follow his command willingly and unconditionally. They understand him and want to help. This Gift is taught by a Lion- or Falcon-spirit.

Strength of Purpose (Level Two) Some Garou feel so strongly about their place in the pack, the tribe and the world that they can draw on this resolve in times of need. The Garou can pull new resolve from his deepest reserves. This Gift is taught by a Wolf-spirit.
 

~Weak Arm (Level Three) Philodox are more attuned to others than are most Garou. Accordingly, they can use this perceptiveness against their foes. Merely watching an opponent’s fighting style lets the Garou determine its strengths and weaknesses. This Gift is taught a Snake- or Wind-spirit. 

Wisdom of the Ancient Ways (Level Three) All Garou have innate connections to their ancestors, a form of racial unconscious accessible through intense meditation. The Garou, by tapping into these deep memories, can remember ancient facts and lore. This Gift is taught by a Garou Ancestor-spirit.

*Roll Over (Level Four) The Garou has such a commanding presence that those encountered readily submit to her. Should she succeed in a test of wills, she dominates her foe, causing humans to fall to their knees, wolves to roll on their backs, etc. This Gift is taught by a Lion- or Wolf-spirit. 

*Scent of Beyond (Level Four) The Garou can bring all his senses to bear on one spot (even an Umbral site) with which he is familiar, no matter how far away that spot is. The Garou senses the site from a point of view as if he were standing in the middle of the area being scanned. This Gift is taught by a Bird-spirit.


Geas (Level Five) Geas causes others to do a Garou’s bidding, though the Geas-layer cannot make the targets act contrary to their basic instincts. Thus, she could send a group on a quest, but could not make its members attack and try to kill each other unless they were psychotics or werewolves. This Gift is taught by an Incarna spirit. 

Wall of Granite (Level Five) Philodox have a stronger relationship with the elementals of the earth than do other Garou, for just as the earth upholds those upon it, the Philodox uphold their peoples ways. While in contact with earth or rock, the Philodox can invoke a wall to protect himself. This wall will move with the Garou, defending him from all angles. This Gift is taught by earth elementals.


5)Rites

The Rites 
Rites are ceremonies that can only be taught by elder wolves. Rites are used to communicate with spirits, create, punish or enter the world known as the Umbra having different results depending on the rite. There are several categories of rites and they are as follows.


Types of Rites 

Accord 

Rites of Accord are designed to bring harmony and/or balance to a Garou or to Gaia and purification, renewal by bringing the target of the ritual through a symbolic rebirth from Gaia's womb. 

• Rite of Cleansing (Level 1): This is to purify a person, place or object and cleanse it from Wyrm-taint to make it safe for use by any and all. A circle is drawn by the Rite’s master in the dirt, walking counter clockwise around the infectious object with a lit torch/smoldering branch, then a branch of either willow or birch dipped in either pure water or snow to sprinkle on the afflicted object. 
• Rite of Contrition (Level 1): Most commonly used to prevent animosity between Garou, spirits, or anyone else of the shifter nation; this is a formal apology that is very handy for any Theurge to know in the event they manage to offend a spirit by accident. It is highly recommended (though not required) that other auspices learn this one as well to apologize to whomever they've offended. The enactor drops to their belly and slides forward; the neck exposed with offers of a small gift may be better received than one without. 
• Rite of Renunciation (Level 2): Rare, but it happens. Garou reject their auspice and choose a new one, performed under the face of Luna that they wish to embrace. Many who do this are viewed with a new suspicion, and members of certain tribes tend to distrust the Garou who has undergone this as doing so is a grave insult to Luna. There are reasons other than just an auspice shift that can trigger such a ritual, resulting in loss of tribe and name; rejecting your tribe in this fashion is a severe insult to your tribal totem. 

Caern 

Caern Rites are designed to provide defense, renewal, and opening of Gaia's sacred places. If these didn't exist, her Great Warriors (Garou) would lose their ferocity in battle and tire of war.
• Moot Rite (Level 1): It is said that moots cannot be opened until after the caern has been granted Gnosis, and all present must form a circle and replenish the Caern's Heart. This ritual must be performed at least once a month for maximum effectiveness. 
• Rite of the Opened Caern (Level 1): Caerns are places that have a beneficial power associated with them. They could be of rage, Enigmas, Strength, etc. If one is knowledgeable enough to tap into the power of the caern and use it themselves, then that is what "opens" the caern; though bear in mind doing so is no easy feat, as most will not release their secrets easily. If a Rite’s master fails to pass the Heart's challenge, or otherwise fails to prove they are competent enough to handle such power properly, it can and will do serious damage to the Garou nation as a whole. 
• Rite of the Badger's Burrow (Level 4): This rite is to connect the guardians of a caern with their bawn, to make their connection so strong they can sense everything going on within its boundaries. Drugs have been known to enhance this effect by the Glass Walkers and Wendigo, but most tribes discourage this practice. 
• Rite of the Opened Bridge (Level 4): "Hey, I wonder where this leads..." Well, okay. You probably don't want to find out, but usually it is a method of getting from one caern to another. It basically opens a moon bridge between two caerns, making travel somewhat easier. Most of these require a moon gem or path stone in order to function, and establishes a spiritual connection through the caern spirits so that the two septs may visit one another freely. This connection must be renewed every 13 months or so for maximum effectiveness. 
• Rite of the Shrouded Glen (Level 4): This causes a segment of Umbra to become invisible to any other portion of the spirit realm. The most common practice for such a ritual is to hide the caern heart, in efforts to prevent it from becoming tainted or a hive. 
• Rite of Caern Building (Level 5): This is perhaps the most powerful rite concerning caerns, because its function creates a permanent caern by thinning the Gauntlet in order to bring the Realm and Umbra closer together, however it has been known to draw the attention of the Wyrm and prove to be a fatal undertaking. 

Death 

Death may be a source of fear for many; however, true warriors of Gaia need not fear knowing that they die protecting the Great Mother in the endless struggle against the Wyrm. The circle of life continues: You're born, you fulfill your duty to Gaia, you die, you are reborn once more. 
• Gathering for the Departed (Level 1): Enacted in honor of the newly dead, pack mates of the slain werewolf will in some way share tales of renowned for their fallen comrade. A long howl usually accompanies this, and the exact form of this rite has no particular form -- so long as the companion's departure is acknowledged, it doesn't matter what tribe you're from. 
• Rite of the Winter Wolf (Level 3): "I need your help, Luke. She needs your help. I'm getting too old for this sort of thing." --- Obi Wan Kenobi Ever wondered why Kenobi kills himself in A New Hope? He knows he's going to die once he's fulfilled his purpose, and becomes one with the Force. The same sort of idea holds true for Garou -- A tenant of the Litany is Suffer Not Thy People to Tend Your Sickness, which (loosely translated) means "I've become too old and am too wounded to help you now, so I'm going to go ask you all to watch me kill myself." There must be at least 3 Garou present to witness this event, and it must always be done at night. Immediately after the suicide, the sept performs the Gathering for the Departed (see above.) Whatever weapon is used to kill the Garou has to be silver, but doesn't have to be a klaive. 

Mystic 

Mystic Rites put a Garou into direct contact with Umbral or spiritual beings. These can be performed solo. 
• Baptism of Fire (Level 1): Many tribes (not all, but most) use this to track down all children born to the tribe's Kinfolk within one month of their birth to see if they, too, are Garou. The search has been known to involve the gift Scent of the True Form. Garou found in this manner are "baptized" under their aspect of Luna beside a ritual fire. In the presence of a Kin-Fetch, the babe is then held up to baske in Luna's glow while the Garou performing the baptism howls Gaia's greeting to the newborn, then in which time the Kin-Fetch kisses the infant; creating a spiritual brand that is recognized by Garou and Black Spiral Dancers alike. 
• Rite of the Questing Stone (Level 1): A Garou can find a person or object, but in order to find it he must know the name of the individual or object he's looking for. A small stone or needle must be dangled from a thread while concentrating on the item or person sought. 
• Rite of Talisman Dedication (Level 1): Allows for the binding of objects to the body, such as clothing, backpacks, and other common mundane items so that when you shift or go into the Umbra with these things, you don't lose them. Fetishes and talens don't use this rite, as they shift or go Umbral with you automatically. 
• Rite of Binding (Level 1): Binding a spirit to a Garou is a difficult process if the spirit you want is a really powerful one. Garou only bind spirits to them when needed, and having a spirit for a servant only works for a short amount of time. Most spirits don't want to be bound, and most Garou don't want to bind spirits. 
• Rite of Becoming (Level 2): Upon completion, it enables them travel into the Deep Umbra. Commonly, this rite requires the Garou make a braid from 3 of their hairs, 3 pieces of fine copper wire and 3 tendrils of a vine or Ivy. Once constructed, the Garou ties it around their wrist and howls 3 words of power. 
• Rite of Spirit Awakening (Level 2): This is used to bring inactive (or sleeping) spirits to wakefulness. A rhythm is played by a Garou on some form of instrument while other Garou participating pace around the rites master with howls and growls in counterpoint to the beat. Mundane items are enlivened, causing it to awaken and appear in the Umbra. 
• Rite of Summoning (Level 2): While most Theurges can call spirits, the process involves complexities in the rituals, endless meditation and tribal mantra chanting. Typically done in the Umbra to make it easier. Minor spirits are usually too weak to resist a powerful summoning, while the more powerful ones will pay a visit out of curiosity. 
• Rite of the Fetish (Level 3): Allows Garou to create a Fetish (an item inbued with a spirit). Doing so requires the potential item to be cleansed by suspending it under sufficiently drinkable tap water (running tap water), burying it in the pure earth, exposing it to constant breezes or suspending it above flame for 3 consecutive nights; then must force or persuade a spirit to enter the prepared object. 
• Rite of the Totem (Level 3): You have a similar interest. A singular common goal. So what if there's only 3 of you? You're a pack now, or you will be once this rite is complete. Spirit quest, typically led by the rites master, or quite possibly even separate quests for each member of the pack who wishes to petition, as the totem has to decide if the Garou petitioning are worthy enough to become his fosterlings. 

Punishment 

Punishment Rites have been known to levy the sanction of the tribe or Sept against a werewolf who has transgressed. The Garou are strengthened by establishing clear limits on acceptable behavior, and the more participation in these punishments by other Garou, the stronger the commitment to the pack over the individual. 

• Rite of Ostracism (Level 2): Common for lesser crimes, but devastating effects can be had during wartime. The punished Garou is estranged from their tribe, sept, or pack, being treated as a non-entity. Ignored and left on their own as much as possible, although no hostile actions are taken against this Garou at the onset (in theory.) Typically lasts from one phase of Luna to the next, however it can last as long as the sept or tribe leader’s desire. 
• Stone of Scorn (Level 2): A rock imbued with a malicious spirit that contains personifications of shame, sorrow, etc. Some septs have a permanent stone of scorn to which offenders are dragged. The stone is passed to each Garou present, the scorned one is forced by their sept mates to sit and watch. Each Garou who receives the stone carves or paints a symbol of derision or shame onto it while telling some mocking or otherwise degrading tale about the offending behavior or about flaws in the Garou's character. 
• Voice of the Jackal (Level 2): The behavior of a Garou has shamed not just themselves, but their entire sept and/or tribe; this may be a viable punishment. The Rite’s master blows a handful of dust or ashes onto the offender and speaks "Because thy (cowardice/gluttony/selfishness/etc) has proved thee tobe of jackal blood, let thy voice proclaim thy true breed!" As the dust or ash lands on its target, their voice changes -- causing them to speak in an annoyingly shrill and piercing nasal whine until the Rite’s master repeals the punishment. 
• The Hunt (Level 3): This is called against those who have committed unwarranted murder or other capital crimes while still retain a vestige of honor. All those participating in a Hunt streak their bodies with ancient symbols in paint or clay, marking them as part of a Hunting Pack and other Garou will clear a path for those so marked. No quarter is given, and many who have perished in this way have gained post-humongous renown. 
• Satire Rite (Level 3): The Stone of Scorn has a big brother. In this case, a special drama crafted by the Philodox and Moon Dancers for the sole purpose of ridicule and always performed during a moot with the offender in full view of the sept. Most of the time, Garou who witness one that aren't the offender will spread it freely to any other Garou they encounter. The offender suffers much renown loss for being so "honored". 
• Rending the Veil (Level 4): Typically used to punish a human who has greatly offended the Garou. The offense is either against Garou, Gaia or Her children. The human becomes the victim of an all night hunt, and may (or may not) result in the death of the human. Those who live are rendered insane, though some overcome this and heal. This is not considered a breach of the Litany. 
• Gaia's Vengeful Teeth (Level 5): Commonly reserved for traitors, consorts of the Wyrm or pure cowards whose lack of action caused death of other Garou. At least 5 Garou drag the traitor to a spot of hard, cracked earth and stone before the Ritesmaster stabs a sharpened twig or stone into their hand as they recite the traitor's sins against Gaia. Smearing their blood over the traitor's eyes, ears, and forehead, the ritesmaster cries out in grief and rage. As blood and tears drip to the ground, the rite takes effect. From that moment, whatever of Gaia touches the traitor transforms into razor sharp silver so long as it maintains contact with the flesh. Hunters in Crinos then chase the traitor like a dog before the ground consumes him. Offender's name is striken from all histories, spoken only as a curse until that moment forward.

Renown 

Rites of Renown celebrate accomplishments of individuals and achievement of new stations within the pack or sept, a longing to receive such rites much as they fear those of punishment.

• Rite of Accomplishment (Level 2): Honoring a werewolf and recognizing the trials they've had to endure to attain their current rank. An elder will call the honored one forward, as they advance their deeds will be listed to gain the acclaim. The Rite then takes place, and anyone who wishes to speak on behalf of the Garou being honored is welcome to. The elder follows up with something along the lines of "She is made greater in tribe, and sept, and amongst the people everywhere. Let this be known." 
• Rite of Passage (Level 2): No cub is even accorded adulthood or respect until they pass this rite, not even considered true Garou, nor considered a member of any tribe until this is complete. The cubs must complete a dangerous test to prove they have the guts, honor, wisdom, and courage befitting a werewolf, and it is very seldom undergone alone. The rites master sends the would-be pack off into the world with a specific intent, forbidding the cubs from returning until they have tried to accomplish this goal. If successful, they are marked with a pictogram that brands them as full-fledged Garou. If unsuccessful, they are considered second-class citizens until granted another opportunity to prove themselves. 
• Rite of Wounding (Level 1): Celebrates a Garou's first battle wound. All honor this as a sign of courage.

Seasonal 

Seasonal rituals are celebrated differently from tribe to tribe and from place to place. Some celebrate the solstices and equinoxes, others perform at least once per moon and renew Gaia's connection to the Garou.

• Rite of the Winter Winds (Level 2): Salute to Helios and encouragement for him to lengthen the days once more. No two septs celebrate it the same way. Encourage Gaia's labor in giving birth to Helios and frighten off any minions of the Wyrm that may still be lurking. 
• Rite of Reawakening (Level 2): Vernal equinox, led by the Rite’s master at sundown leading the Gathered Garou into an Umbral quest. Always do these quests contain 7 trials, and it is usually around this time that mating is once again encouraged. 
• The Great Hunt (Level 2): Also known as Midsummer. Exactly at midnight, the Rite’s master calls upon Gaia to bring the attention of the sept to a creature worthy of the Great Hunt. In preparation, the Garou chant, howl and tell stories, also engage in a ritual bloodletting. At dawn, Gaia sends the waiting sept a sign proclaiming the target of the hunt. They only have until midnight to complete the Great Hunt; the danger of the Great Hunt determines the amount of Glory gained.

6)The Umbra

The Umbra 
The Umbra is another world that exists alongside the physical world. The Umbra is a place filled with layers and in certain layers spirits reside where the Garou can communicate with them or even enter the Umbra itself. The layers of the Umbra are as follows.

Other Layers 
Gauntlet: The gauntlet is a barrier that shields the Umbra from the physical world, the thickness of the Gauntlet decides how hard it is to gain entrance into the Umbra. The Gauntlet Is weaker in places of death and stronger in places filled with lively activity.

Penumbra : The Penumbra is a mirror reflection of the physical world and how it should be in the eye of the beholder. Depending on what race enters the Penumbra will see. Garou will see this world in an animalistic fashion, mages while other mages and vampires will see the place in a state of decay 

Layers of the Umbra 
The Underworld (Low Umbra): The Underworld is the lowest point of the Umbra and the domain of the dead and memories. The Underworld is divided into several areas.
http://whitewolf.wikia.com/wiki/Underworld_(oWOD) (More on the Underworld)

The Spirit Wilds (Middle Umbra): This is the domain of spirit and essence and is where Garou frequent the most.

The Astral Reaches (High Umbra): The High Umbra is the domain of thought, idea and concept and is a reflection of the conciseness of humanity in its entirety. This domain is frequented mostly by mages.

Entering the Umbra.

To go into the Umbra, a rite must be used.

Reminder, read the guide carefully before you PM me anything. And also the first application is the Garou application only if you already have a werewolf character. Also read the questions answered more carefully.

Thats why your post was deleted Jay.

Because you're entering another world and the rite needs to be performed for you to have a way to go in it. Else you can't create a path to go to that world.
