Cost: – ; Mins: Martial Arts 5, Essence 4; Type: Permanent
Keywords: Overdrive
Duration: Permanent
Prerequisite Charms: Perfect Sync Defense

To the ascendent master of Resonant Attunement, a bonded artifact is as much a part of him as his own mind and body. This relationship is sovereign. Unbreakable and unsurpassed in its depth and power. His essence flows freely between them.

This charm enhances Harmonic Alignment Technique, expanding the benefits gained by bonding with artifacts. So long as the martial artist’s Sync value is at least equal to his Essence, he perfectly resists any attempt to disarm a bonded artifact. If his Sync value is twice his Essence or more, he also perfectly resists any effect which would cause him to lose his attunement to such an item.

Through this ultimate bond, the martial artist can use his own weapons and armor as a reservoir of essence. He gains an Overdrive pool with a capacity equal to the total number of motes he has committed to Harmonic Alignment Technique, and gains an overdrive mote for every mote he recovers from a stunt where he specifically leverages his bonded equipment. Motes gained in this way cause the exalt’s anima banner to flare as if he had spent an equal number of motes from his peripheral pool, manifesting appropriately themed effects which emerge from the character’s bonded equipment as if the items possessed anima banners of their own.
