The question is set, which I don't know the answer to, but let me explain a little bit. In the Renown table there are a couple of passages, that one could get Renown for being a genius, inventing new Gifts and/or Rites, it's terrific, but how does a shifter set this new Gift/Rite into being? (S)He gets up one day, says I have a new idea for a Rite, gets the moves for it together, says it should do that and that, if the shifter is a Garou or another one who has a pack, then the pack accepts it, it's a custom among a few shifters, it expands to a couple of other, and so on, but it should be tuned in spiritually as I know it, how is it tuned in, how is it accepted as a Rite and not just a couple of moves? I know anthropologically, how a ritual would be accepted in a given culture group, but the mechanics of this game work as I understand it a little bit otherwise. So please explain it to me, and as you do it, please explain also how one could invent a Gift? Because I think it isn't so, that for example a Garou gets one day up, the bulb (or if (s)he is not a GW, a camp fire) lights up in his/her brain, goes to the Umbra, speaks with the given spirit maybe, and the spirit says, "I'm cool with it, but I don't know anything like it, you know it, why don't you teach it", and the Garou says "yeah, honorable spirit, but I don't know it", sooo this sounds to me a little goofy, how would it be really done? Thank you all for your answers!
