Charisma Charms

Outworld-Forsaking Stance

This is a perfect social parry which works only against creatures of darkness.

Foe-Turning rebuke

This charm may only target a creature of darkness. It is a presence-based attack which creates a Compulsion (Temperance) to "cease approaching" as unnatural mental influence. The cost to overcome this influence is 3 willpower.

Scathing Lunar Condemnation

This is a social attack based upon either Presence or Performance to create an Intimacy (Compassion) to "being as far away from the Lunar as possible" as an unnatural mental influence. The cost to overcome this compulsion is 2 willpower, and it will fade at the end of the scene. If used against a Creature of Darkness the Lunar may double his raw successes before applying MDV in step 5 of social attack resolution, the cost to resist is 4 willpower, and the intimacy will not fade until the end of the story.

Cobra Hypnotic Method

This is a social attack to create a Compulsion (Temperance) of "Become inactive" as an unnatural influence. The cost to overcome this influence is 2 willpower, and it will fade after the Lunar has taken a number of actions equal to her essence.

Forgetful Victim Prana

This is a social attack to create a Belief type Intimacy (Conviction) of "Nothing happened during the specified period" as unnatural mental influence. The period forgotten lasts for the Lunars next Essence actions. The cost to overcome this influence is 1 willpower. The intimacy is permanent, and permanently unnatural unless the victim spends 3 willpower and an entire scene trying to remember -- this causes the intimacy to become natural with rating equal to the victim's Temperance.

Unnoticed Confusion Attack

This is a social attack to create a Belief type Intimacy (Conviction) of "the supplemented attack did not happen" as unnatural influence. This does not count as a flurry. The cost to overcome this influence is 2 willpower. Once it has been overcome even once this intimacy becomes a natural intimacy with rating equal to the victim's Temperance.

Subtle Silver Command

This charm is social attack (which may target even inactive characters, and which renders parry inapplicable) to create an intimacy of any type as unnatural mental influence. The intimacy must be one shared by the Lunar. The cost to overcome this intimacy is 1 willpower. The intimacy will become natural of rating equal to the relevant virtue after the Lunar's Presence in days, or at any time when the victim spends 3 points of willpower at once to resist.

Secret Speech Method

This is a performace-based social attack against all persons present not the subject of the supplemented communication to create a Compulsion (Temperance) "Do not notice the supplemented attack" as unnatural mental influence. This does not count as a flurry and produces no extra action penalties. This compulsion may not be disobeyed even by spending willpower.

Perfect Fear Scent

This is a social attack to create either an Emotion (Compassion) effect of "Fear", or an passion type intimacy (Compassion) of "fear of (some target)", the Lunar's choice, as unnatural mental influence. The cost to overcome this influence is 1 willpower. The emotion or intimacy will become natural (of maximum rating) at the end of the scene.

Mind-Blanking Fear Technique

This is a presence-based social attack to create an Intimacy (Conviction) that "(Chosen memory) is false" as unnatural mental influence. The cost to overcome this influence is 1 willpower. The Intimacy remains unnatural until it has been broken a number of times equal to the victim's Conviction.

Terrifying Lust Infliction

This is a social attack to create either an Emotion (Compassion) effect of "Lust", or an passion type intimacy (Compassion) of "Desire for (some target)", the Lunar's choice, as unnatural mental influence. The cost to overcome this influence is 1 willpower. The emotion or intimacy will become natural (of maximum rating) at the end of the scene.

Herd Reinforcing Stance

This is a social attack to create a Duty type intimacy (Valour) to either the target's native society or the society they are currently exposed to, as unnatural mental influence. What is more, this attack automatically succeeds. The cost to overcome this influence is one willpower; if this is done twice then the intimacy disappears entirely. After 24 hours this intimacy becomes natural with rating equal to the victim's Conviction.

Forsaking the Blood Posture

This is identical to Herd Reinforcing Stance except that the intimacy is against the society in question.

Culling the Pride

This supplements an attack against a social unit to create a compulsion. The attack becomes unnatural, and the cost to overcome the compulsion is set to half the Lunar's charisma.

Topiary Culture Meditation

This is a social attack against a social unit to create an intimacy directly opposed to an existing intimacy in the unit's policy as unnatural mental influence. The cost to overcome this intimacy is 1 loyalty. The intimacy is permanent until either the original intimacy it opposed has degraded to non-existence or the unit's leader has spent 8 loyalty in defying it, at which point it evaporates.

Herd Strengthening Invocation

This charm causes a single intimacy in the target unit's policy to rise in rating by the Lunar's Charisma. This may raise the intimacy's rating above the usual maximum. This increased rating will not degrade unless attacked.

Manipulation Charms

Mirror Sight Dismay

This is a social attack to produce a belief-type Intimacy (Conviction) directly opposed to an existing one as unnatural mental influence. The cost to overcome this intimacy is 2 willpower. This belief will evaporate at the end of the scene.

Lost Mirror Flight

This is a social attack to create an intimacy of any sort which could represent a form of madness as unnatural influence. The cost to overcome this intimacy is 1 willpower. The intimacy is permanent until the target has resisted it a number of times equal to twice the Lunar's Essence.

Mask of White Jade

This is a perfect social dodge which works only against investigation attacks and costs an extra willpower if used against an attack backed up with any charms.

Labyrinth of the Beast

This is a social perfect dodge which works only against natural influence.

Commanded to Fly

This charm is Reflexive (step 9) and targets a single influence of unnatural strength for as long as the essence remains committed. For as long as the charm is active the targeted influence may be disobeyed for no willpower cost. This does not, however, remove or weaken the influence itself. This has no effect upon the duration of the unnatural influence in question, if the influence evaporates or stops being unnatural whilst this charm is still active then this charm immediately ends.

Butterfly Eyes Fist

This is a presence-based social attack to create a compulsion (Valour) to take a particular combat action as unnatural mental influence. The cost to overcome this compulsion is 2 willpower.

Creating the Wolf Attitude

This is a social attack to create either an Emotion (Compassion) effect of "Fear", or an passion type intimacy (Compassion) of "fear of (some target)", the Lunar's choice, as unnatural mental influence. The cost to overcome this influence is 2 Loyalty. The emotion or intimacy is permanent until the target group has resisted it three times, at which time it becomes natural of rating equal to the target's compassion.

Feeding the Bear Progression

This charm is identical to Creating the Wolf Attitude except that the effect is either an Emotion (Compassion) of "Craving" or a passion type intimacy (Compassion) of "Craving for (something)", the Lunar's choice.

Appearance Charms

Perfect Symmetry

Whilst this charm is in effect any time the Lunar performs a social attack he may choose to compare his Appearance to that of the target instead of the target's Temperance. Similarly if the Lunar is the subject of a social attack he may force the attacker to compare his Appearance to the Lunar's Appearance instead of the Lunar's Temperance, if he so wishes. Once the Lunar reaches Essence six he may instead substitute Appearance + Temperance.

New Friend Aroma

This is a social attack to create an intimacy (Compassion) to the Lunar as a friend or foe, as unnatural mental influence, which takes no MDV penalties for attempting to establish an intimacy. This intimacy lasts until the end of the scene, when it evaporates. During the scene the unnatural intimacy will support any attempt to create a similar intimacy through other means.

Glance Oration Technique

This charm allows the Lunar to engage in social attacks even without speaking. The Lunar takes no MDV penalty for attempting to take the floor. Furthermore note that characters without this charm may not even attempt to take the floor unless they can communicate somehow.

Irresistable Silver Spirit

Whilst in the trance a Lunar must always attempt to Hold the Floor and if she loses the floor must immediately attempt to seize it again unless she pays the appropriate willpower cost.

Perception Charms

Wolf Ear Advantage

When using this charm each Monologue or study action grants two bonus dice, up to maximum of six.

Motive Disecting Eye

This charm can report on the rating of any intimacy or influence which it reveals.
