Gareth's head begins to spark and crackle with energy and suddenly a burst of lightning flashes out from his temple

one night while reading Nickola Tesla's biography on a park bench, Gareth noticed a strange cloud forming above his head that suddenly flashed a mighty bolt of lighting down upon him. The bench he was sitting on and the grass around him were blown away only leaving him and his book unscathed. ever since that night Gareth found he was able to call on the might of that electrical current. Strangely Gareth found that along with this new found power, he also grew a major fear of anything that may be considered unsanitary

Charisma + Influence difficulty 7

Mind diff 6 to resist

Due to their ability to grant orders to mortals on behalf of the heavenly host, Chamael has the ability to issue simple commandments. When used outside of alternate form, a image of his alternate form shimmers over his body, wings outstretched, like a ghost-
A glimpse at his true self.


Exert your Mind (unless Alternate Form is Active) and spend at least one Action to activate. Select a Sapient target at any range. Communicate a command to your target. Roll Charisma + Alertness at Difficulty 6. The target may resist by rolling Mind at Difficulty 7.

If the contested Outcome is positive, your target will be compelled to follow your command to their best understanding of the letter and spirit of the command until they have completed it or for your Outcome in hours. You cannot issue another suggestion to the target until 10 minutes after they have completed the first command or 10 minutes after a failure.

They will be unaware that they are under any sort of compulsion until the effect wears off, but they will appear obviously mind-controlled the entire time to anyone observing them. If you fail, they realize that you were attempting to influence them supernaturally with your command.

Your command can be an order to take an immediate Action. You cannot order a target to "do nothing," and they are free to take other Actions as they fulfill your request. Commands can put the target into a potentially self-endangering scenario, including Combat, though you cannot force a target to directly attack themselves. Commands may force a target to violate one of their Limits, and they will need to make a Trauma roll once the suggestion wears off.

You are equally bound to follow any command you issue.

  • The target must be able to understand you and must receive your communication for the suggestion to work.
  • Allowed Commands
    • Direct Order: The target must take an immediate action (e.g. “Sit down,” "run away," or "tell me your password.")
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.

The target may roll to dodge or defend, as normal for Water balloon attacks. The attack may or may not deal Damage as per a normal attack, at the user's choice.

If you succeed, your target becomes drowsy for the next 30 minutes, during which time they suffer an additional -3 dice Penalty to all Actions. After this, they fall asleep for Outcome x 3 rounds.

Affected targets will not prematurely wake up on their own, but may still be woken up by sudden loud noises, being jarred or splashed with water, taking damage, or similar rousing events. They will also awaken before dying of hunger, thirst, or suffocation.

  • This consumable is destroyed when used and cannot be used again.
  • For targets where "sleep" does not make any sense in terms of flavor, they will power down, freeze, etc, whatever state they can be in which is analogous to sleep.
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.
