Skinwalker Gifts

These Gifts are known only to Nuwisha, usually taught by Coyote himself.

• Snake's Skin

With this gift a nuwisha can shed a layer of skin in order to slip free of extremely tight bonds and even handcuffs. Once the reason for this ‘shedding’ is complete, she instantly regenerates the lost flesh. This gift may even help a were-coyote avoid being thrown by an opponent. This gift can only be used once per day.

Cost: One essence point.

Dice Pool: Dexterity + Athletics.

Action: Immediate.

Roll Results

Botch: A layer of skin peels away painfully, causing lethal damage equal to the botch level. Ie. -1 botch, 1 lethal damage, -2 botch, 2 lethal damage. The character remains bound despite this shedding, and any further attempts to use the ability before the wounds heal will fail. All essence spent is lost.

Failure: The nuwisha is unable to escape her bonds. All essence spent is lost.

Success: The nuwisha is able to remove the outer layer of flesh and allow her to slip free of any bonds.
