Long May She Reign (•••••, Lacrima •••••)Edit
- Action: Instant
- Dice pool: Composure + Occult
- Cost: 5 Wisps, 1 Willpower dot (if successful)
- Duration: lasting
This rare and powerful Charm is the source of the ghost Nobles who dwell within Alhambra and serve its Queen. Because of the enormous political power and prestige it brings the Protectorate of Amethyst guard all knowledge of it jealously.
The target Noble must be at death’s door, but must not actually be dead. For instance, a Noble with a Health track filled with lethal and aggravated damage is a valid target for the Charm.
- Dramatic Failure: Instead of creating a ghost, the Noble accidentally kills the target.
- Failure: The Noble may try again at a -1 penalty, if the target still lives.
- Success: The target dies, and rises again as a ghost Noble. Long may she reign over us.
- Exceptional Success: The target loses a dot of Shadows just before she dies and rises.
The Noble using the Charm always spends the Wisps to activate it; she sacrifices a Willpower dot only if the Charm succeeds.
