COMMUNING WITH THE STORM (LEVEL 0)
It is easy to lose oneself in the intricacies of Garou society, and to forget that the ultimate goal of all the politicking of the Shadow Lords is the defeat of the Wyrm and the restoration of Gaia to her normal state. Many Shadow Lords thus turn to this rite to remind themselves of why they're fighting, and of what they're supposed to be fighting for.
System: This rite can only be performed in the midst of a thunderstorm. The Shadow Lord must remain outside--among the elements--while the storm rages, and she must contemplate her true nature. If successful, the Shadow Lord's focus on the ultimate purpose of all Garou will be reinvigorated.
