How can I make my werewolf fly? I feel like flying is within scope for things I expect a werewolf to be able to do, given enough XP.

I had thought that Mother Luna's second dot gift "anybeast" could do it, but on closer reading that just lets you apply a "custom skin" onto your wolf forms -- it doesn't change your capacity.

I am looking for a method for my werewolf to fly.

  • Ideally method should not require any gifts/abilities that are restricted Auspice (since that can't be changed)
  • it also should not (ideally) require any gifts/abilities that a restricted to Tribe or Lodge (but this is less important than the above)
  • It could require some ability granted by Totem

A few ways other supernaturals can fly -- I am sure their are more, but these are just examples:

  • Mages can fly via Forces (to levitate), or Life (to grow wings)
  • Changelings can fly via Fang and Talon to turn into a bird.
  • Vampires similarly via turning into a bat
  • Sineaters can fly by going into a trance to activate marionette then their marionette can pick up their body and fly around carrying it.

    \$\begingroup\$ Just for clarity, I assume you want this potential Werewolf to be capable of landing more than once, yes? :) \$\endgroup\$ – Brian S Sep 17 '14 at 19:30

    \$\begingroup\$ LOL That was my first thought as well, which led to wanting to type "Piss off a vampire with Potence" as an answer. \$\endgroup\$ – Sandalfoot Sep 17 '14 at 19:54

I'm not a Forsaken expert, but from what I can tell you're limited to the use of Fetishes:

  • The Spirit Wings Fetish (one dot, WtF Core) lets you fall slowly or float horizontally.
  • The Shadow Wings Fetish (three dots, WtF Core) lets you fly for hours, but only in the Shadow.
  • The Condor Idol Fetish (two dots, Lodges: The Splintered) lets you fly in the Shadow at a lower dot cost, but it's Lodge-restricted.

The simplest answer is to make a Fetish.

Since flying is relatively powerful, it'd probably be a 4-dot (for restricted altitude or about 20~30 minutes per day) or a 5-dot (unlimited use) Fetish. Using the Fetish Rite (WtF:Core p162) with any large bird spirit, like a condor or an eagle would work.
