The Ebon Dragon’s spite diffuses from all his actions. It is spread not only by clumsy strikes meant to injure, but also through mere exposure to his subtler hate-filled musings. This Charm is a permanent upgrade to its prerequisite, allowing it to be activated to enhance a single target social attack for a three-mote surcharge. In this case, the victim is affected by Seeing is Blindness if (and only if) he spends Willpower to resist a successful social attack. At Essence 5, it automatically upgrades to allow activation to enhance multiple target social attacks. In this case, Knowing is Suffering’s surcharge must be paid for each dot of Magnitude the Infernal wishes to affect, beginning with those listeners in closest proximity. He may not choose to exempt allies from this effect; the Ebon Dragon’s spite is all-encompassing. A repurchase, also at Essence 5, allows it to be activated to enhance written social attacks for an additional one Willpower surcharge. Doing so enchants that particular written attack, affecting anyone who reads it so long as it exists.
