    At a glance, it seems only the Glory Facet deals with physical time, and the others with conceptual time. Fitting since Glory Facets in general are often the most blatant, and the Purity Facet implies that the spirit of the Gift lies in hamstringing the prey.
    just to note- the truth is, that there is no real difference between the two- think about "conceptual time" as "effective physical time". The time which is needed for the system to react to changes is a physical quantity which you can measure, and is, in fact, the "time difference" between it and other systems of reference, for time "effectively" flows slower in the said system.

    In short, what werewolves play with is still Time- it is simply that their magic acts from within, instead of from without.

      Meh, never intended to imply the Gift of Time not being “true” time magic or whatsoever.

      And physics never was my forte

        Oh nor problem- I mean, seriously, I don't need a lot to trigger me to start writing about physics in the forums. The funny thing that practicing how to adapt real life scientific principles to the CofD actually helps me in my research. Funny how things work :P

          Acrozatarim Minor nit-pick: Out of Time's dramatic failure should perhaps afford 8 again (or another beneficial condition) to a related roll, since initiative itself doesn't uses dice tricks.

            So... by chance did anybody do homebrew on the Gifts of Tides, Darkness, and/or Metal?

              I thought I did Darkness but when I checked it was an attempt at Eclipse.

                So I have a relatively important question.
                What kind of spirit can even give the Gift of Time?

                  Certain celestial spirits, I suppose. The sun, the moon, and the stars were all associated with the passing of time in one way or another.

                    CLOCK SPIRITS. or like sundial or watch or even certain tech spirits that can tell the time depending. spirits of other less corporal things too, like lateness or worrying about the time or schedule. even spirits of like calanders or holidays depending on how you stretch it

                      Maybe a Spirit of procrastination for some facets?

                        Or just a Time spirit.

                          Should not Lunes be part Time spirits also? You know, they are spirits of Particular Phase of Moon, in the end.

                            Um, that’s why I included ‘the moon’ up there...?

                              Spirit of Moon is... Luna. Spirits of Phases of Moon are Lunes. They are not the same, as Lunes are servants of Luna - and are seen of day-to-day period by Uratha. Moon Goddess sighting is legendary event.

                              If Lunes are Time spirits - would Helions also? Moon Phases are much more connected to flow of time idea than the Sun hanging all day long on the sky.

                                Yeah, but from my understanding, good luck getting Gifts from a Helion
