Renown represents a Werewolf's standing within both Uratha culture and the Spirit World. There are five different Renown, each representing a different kind of prestige or 'spiritual virtue' that a Uratha can exhibit. Effectively, each Renown allows a Werewolf to spend 1 Essence to add that Renown to any appropriate roll, so long as the action is in keeping with that Renown. In essence, their Renown becomes a new set of alternate Virtues that they can spend Essence to "Push themselves Spiritually" to utilize.


Gifts are essentially spirit Numina that Uratha may learn. All Uratha Numina are now tied to one or more Renown, which itself is tied to Auspice. Individual Numina may be purchased at (new level x 2) XP, but may never be purchased at a level higher than the character's Rank in their governing Renown. A beginning Uratha gains 1 dots of their Auspice Renown, 1 dot of any Renown, and 6 dots worth of Numina. Father Wolf's Gifts are unique, in that they are tied directly to Rage rather than to any Renown or Auspice, and are hence limited directly by Rage rather than any given Renown rank.

Activating any Gift costs an amount of essence equal to the Gift's Rank, unless the Gift falls under one of the Uratha's Favored Auspices. Favored Gifts require one less dot of essence to activate, to a minimum of 1 essence. Most Gifts also have an activation roll; the essence must be paid before the roll is made, and the essence spent is lost with no effect if the activation roll fails.

Rites are purchased at (Rite level x 2) Experience. A character may know any number of Rites, but no Rite level may exceed the higher of his Rage or his highest Renown rank. Activating any Rite costs an amount of essence per performance roll equal to the Rite's level, and takes a a base amount of time per roll based on the Uratha's Rage. Spirit Mages who follow the Old Pact may learn Spirit and Shadow Rites as if they were Rotes under the Spirit Arcanum, but only Werewolves with a Harmony trait may learn Uratha Rites.
