Detailed Reasoning
--------------------------
So this is a loop hole that needs to be closed. 
 
The only spirits that, by book, teach these gifts, are coordinator NPCs in the Aetherial Realm, where you must effectively go to space and do something or present something that makes you worthy of being taught these powers.
 
However, what's been happening, because the bylaws don't explicitly state you can't do it this way (even tho the books do!), is that people have been summoning 'aspects' of the coordinator controlled NPCs to learn the aetherial gifts they, and only they, can teach!
 
SO!
 
Bylaw loop hole closing. 
 
Yes, I realize this is a large list of gifts and will increase the bylaw regulation, but this is basically garou thaum and it's currently a 'the bylaws don't say I can't!' loophole. 
 
Data:
I had 3 sheets signed into Concolation with over 10 Aetherial Gifts. 
 
I had 6 sheets signed into Concolation with 5-10 Aetherial Gifts. 
 
I had over 20 sheets signed into Concolation with 1-5 gifts. 
 
Of the above, close to half did not have to complete any chimmage for the gifts they had obtained where as others (who went through proper channels) had to risk their character sheet to obtain the power bump.
 
For those of you who don't play Changing Breeds, these gifts are arguably the most powerful gifts in the genre because they are literally taught to you as a 'power given to you by the Gods' sort of scenario. 
 
These are not things that you should be able to get without chimminage. 
 
That being said, I don't care if STs put them on chronicle NPCs and have zero desire to regulate that. I just want everyone who goes to get gift x to have to effectively pay the same price for it.
