Proposal
-------------


Pursuant to Coordinator Bylaw §3.C.iii, I, Dora Jay, as Changing Breeds Coordinator, do so propose the following. It should be noted that this proposal has the potential to autopass. 


----------------------
Bylaw Addition
---------------------
  1. Gifts
    1.  
    2. Non-Fianna learning Faerie Blood - PC: Coordinator Approval - NPC: Coordinator Notify - Coordinator: Changing Breeds
--------------------------
Gift Write Up
--------------------------
The Garou can temporarily transform his blood into that of a Faerie. This Gift is taught by a Faerie Lord.
 
Mechanics, per Players Guide 1st Edition
 
TT System: The Garou spends two Gnosis points to activate this Gift. This allows him immunity to silver; however, cold iron will have the same effect on him that silver normally does. Any Gnosis roll will be at a -1 difficulty; also, the Garou does not have to spend a Gnosis point on any Gift or magic which requires the expenditure of one Gnosis point (although those with a cost of two or more require the full expenditure). In addition, he can walk into Arcadia from the Umbra without having to worry about guardians or time-shift effects. The character will be considered to have potent blood to the Kindred: each blood point is worth two for their feeding but there is always a side effect for the vampire drinking this fey blood. The Storyteller is free to get wild with the effect: anything from hallucinations to transforming into a donkeyheaded vampire for a scene. Any Kindred with the second level of the Auspex Discipline (Aura Perception) will recognize the Garou’s blood as special, even for a werewolf. The Garou does not need to roll for this Gift, but he must spend two Gnosis points to activate it. This Gift lasts for one scene.
 
Typical MET Mechanical Translation: (Note this is a summerization of the two most common versions of this gift I have seen in OWBN) By spending 2 Gnosis, the user becomes immune to silver but gains a weakness to cold iron. In addition, they may halve all gnostic costs rounding down. A gnostic action that costs 0 still counts as if the user was spending gnosis in regards to temper rules (aka if you use a gift that would normally cost gnosis while Faerie Blood is up, you may not spend Rage in the same round unless you possess the gift Chaos Mechanics).  
 
--------------------------
Detailed Reasoning
--------------------------
A first ed gift that is often considered to be the single best gift Fianna have access to, Faerie Blood has seen increased visibility in the org in the past two years and many STs have called for its restriction on an out of bat basis. 
 
It significantly increases the fighting power of the Fianna who uses it and is considered to be a 'go to power' out of splat in the current combat meta for those looking to up their combat game. There are times learning this gift out of splat is acceptable but they should be very few and far between.  
 
This has partial grandfathering. Assuming you purchased this gift before this prop was posted, you're good to go. 
--------------------------
