The elements themselves are at a Terrestrial’s command. Though it cannot grant him the world shaping magic of the Solar exalted, this charm enables a Terrestrial to manipulate the Gaean elements of Creation at will, reflexively reshaping up to (Essence) cubic yards of material reflexively each tick. This charm functions only in Creation, and can manipulate only relatively simple, pure examples of elemental matter – it cannot create or alter complex objects, magical structures or artifacts, or items possessed by another creature – but otherwise allows the Exalt to reconfigure the chosen volume into any shape or variation of the element in question.

This charm cannot create direct attacks as such, but can generate nearly any kind of appropriate natural environmental hazard the Exalt is familiar with or can devise. If used within an uncapped elementally aspected demesne, it can also create magical hazards appropriate to the demesne’s element.

If multiple Terrestrials combine their shaping efforts on a particular tick, the volume of material which can be shaped is multiplied by two (exponentially) for each Exalt assisting the character leading the effort. Additionally, in the context of mass combat, the Terrestrial can shape at the rate of (Essence x 50) cubic yards per long tick. It must be learned separately for each element to be manipulated, but a single activation of the charm allows the Terrestrial to manipulate all elements for which he has learned the charm.
