The Gauntlet has waxed and waned over the centuries, in a constant flux depending on location and supernatural activity in the area, but has become much thinner everywhere since Gehenna, now that most unawakened humans know that magick and supernatural creatures exist. The Gauntlet is thinner in places like haunted graveyards or the wilderness, and thicker in places such as laboratories and shopping malls. The relative strength of the Gauntlet at any given location determines the ease with which one can cross it.
Crossing the GauntletEdit
Werecreatures have a natural ability to "step sideways" through the Gauntlet into the Umbra, although reflective surfaces, polished silver, a quiet pool of water, and especially mirrors make stepping sideways easier.
