Campaign of the Month: July 2011
Sins of the First Age
Soul Forge Construction
Cost: —; Mins: Lore 6, Essence 6; Type: Permanent
Prerequisite Charms: Wyld Cauldron Technology
The enlightened learn the ways of Creation before attempting to create for themselves. Its spirits and powers – indeed, its every mote – exist with purpose, for they were created to sustain that which the Primordials created, even in their makers’ absence.
This Charm enhances the character’s Wyld-Shaping Technique, improving the quality of characters he can create.
When the Solar creates individuals as described in Wyld Cauldron Technology he can create beings with up to essence three. Typically these are elementals or small gods, but they may also be enlightened mortals. Exalted, half castes, and demons may not be created in this way. Each point of essence beyond the first requires the expenditure of five additional shaping successes.
If he wishes it, characters the Solar creates with Wyld-Shaping Technique may possess proper souls, drawn by the savant’s magic, and participate in the cycle of reincarnation normally. Diverting souls in this way without prior arrangements made in Yu-Shan is likely to draw the attention of heaven, but the Lawgiver is technically within his rights to do so, and so this serves mainly as an obstacle to stealth.
