Purchase Gifts

Gifts are special abilities beyond the general competency indicated by the attribute levels. A Gorgon, for instance, might be able to petrify an opponent with her gaze, even if she does not have Domain over stone, petrification, or transmutations. Players purchase gifts with character points, and their costs draw on the Domain and Aspect miracle level charts.
