Story-Weaving Primacy Technique

Cost: 20m, 1wp; Mins: Martial Arts 6, Essence 6; Type: Reflexive
Keywords: Combo-OK, Shaping, Compulsion
Duration: One Action
Prerequisite Charms: Escalating Narrative of Consequence Form

Speaking in a language Creation has never heard but which everyone present can understand perfectly, in a voice which can be heard by every being present without rising above a dramatic whisper, the martial artist’s words are impossible to ignore, and his commands nearly impossible to resist. Until his DV refreshes, the character may freely narrate the actions of anyone in the scene, and they are compelled to conform to the story he tells.

This is an unnatural compulsion effect which is Obvious to everyone involved, and characters may resist the martial artist’s edicts for the duration of the effect by spending a number of willpower equal to the scene’s current Escalation Level. After a character has spent the willpower to resist this effect once in a scene, resisting subsequent activations costs a single point of willpower.

This charm can be activated only if the scene’s Escalation Level is four or greater and only by the character with narrative control of the scene as defined in Opening Verse Recitation. The character automatically wins any contest for control of the scene during this charm’s duration. As a reflexive charm, Story-Weaving Primacy Technique may be activated at any time, but it cannot be activated again until the character’s DV refreshes, and it cannot interrupt an action already in progress.
