Sexy Charms by Way of ApologyOctober 7, 2010
So, as it turns out, yesterday was the first time since starting this blog that I missed a M/W/F update. Mia culpa. By way of apology, I will forego the rant I had planned and instead deliver unto you, my dedicated public, some sexy Solar Charms I had developed. May they ease the small pain of my tardiness!
Indelicate Open-Palmed Strike
Cost: 4m; Mins: Martial Arts 3, Essence 3; Type: Supplemental
Keywords: Combo-OK, Compulsion, Emotion, Social
Prerequisite Charms: Dragon Coil Technique
Some partners enjoy things a little rough in bed, and the Solar Exalted are certainly able to accomodate their desires. This Charm enhances an attempt to maintain a clinch. If the Solar wins the attempt, chooses to deal damage, and would successfully do so, the attempt instead deals only one level of unsoakable Bashing damage (and usually leaves a red handprint). The victim of the attack, however, immediately develops a positive Intimacy, either toward the Solar or toward indelicate carnal activity, as the victim chooses. She may pay one Willpower immediately to avoid this effect, or she may erode the Intimacy normally in subsequent scenes. Further, she is subjected to a Compulsion effect that forces her to cease conflict against the Solar, whether by ending struggle against a clinch or by sitting quietly by and observing the Solar should she be released from the clinch. She may spend three Willpower to resist this effect. The Compulsion effect also ends if the Solar should inflict any further damage on the target.
Indefatiguable Engine of Ecstasy
Cost: -; Mins: Resistance 5, Essence 4; Type: Permanent
Prerequisite Charms: Tireless Sentinel Technique
The Solar Exalted have often claimed to be the pinnacle lovers in Creation, and they have the endurance to back that claim up. This Charm enhances its prerequisite, ensuring that no activity the Solar takes contributes to fatigue or exhaustion. It also adds his Essence to the calculation to determine how many days he can go without sleep while using Tireless Sentinel Technique.
The Right Tool for the Job
Cost: 4m; Mins: Craft 4, Essence 3; Type: Simple
Prerequisite Charms: Craftsman Needs No Tools
Solars may not be as versatile as their Lunar mates, but those same mates have often been surprised by the Solars’ resourcefulness. This Charm allows the Solar to rapidly construct an improvised tool from whatever materials and objects happen to be nearby. This tool provides a +1 situational bonus (which explicitly does not count as a dice bonus from Charms) to any action it was created to help. Further, any stunt utilizing the tool produced by this Charm has its rating increased by one, to a maximum of 3. As soon as the task is completed, the tool returns to its original form (if altered) and no longer grants its bonus, though subsequent applications of this Charm can restore its enhanced functionality.
Phantom Lover’s Caress
Cost: 3m, 1wp; Mins: Stealth 3, Essence 3; Type: Simple
Keywords: Combo-OK, Crippling, Touch
Duration: One Scene
Prerequisite Charms: Easily-Overlooked Presence Method
When a Solar chooses a lover, the lover does not always see the Exalt. She can hear her lover’s heart beating in his chest, hear his breathing, feel the air around him shift and move as he does, but for them, it is as if it is an incubus, or a succubus. There is no discernible form to touch, until contact is made, or the Solar gets careless. This Charm affects a touched target, inflicting a temporary form of the Blindness mutation, wherein the penalties apply only to actions taken to perceive or affect the Solar himself. However, as recompense, the target gains the benefits of Keen Hearing and Touch Discipline for the Charm’s Duration. Should the subject manage to percieve or affect the Solar, the Charm’s effects immediately end.
Invoking the Euphoric Vocalizations
Cost: -; Mins: Socialize 3, Essence 3; Type: Permanent
Keywords: Combo-OK, Emotion, Social
Prerequisite Charms: Mastery of Small Manners
A faux pas can be devastating, but a faux pas in… delicate… negotiations can be worse by far. This Charm enhances its prerequisite. While it is active, it ensures that while the Solar engages in carnal activities, he does not accidentally perform any action that would repulse his partner(s). Moreover, this Charm makes the unique tastes and proclivities of his partner(s) Obvious to his senses. Finally, any scene wherein the Solar caters to these proclivities counts as one scene building a positive Intimacy toward the Solar or eroding a negative Intimacy toward him. This is in addition to any building or eroding he may have performed during that scene.
