With enough angry words, the hearts of nations become hardened. The Abyssal sets this Charm in motion by speaking to as many people as he can within the hour that it is activated. Each of these targets must succeed at a simple Compassion roll to resist the Icy Heart epidemic. Those afflicted have a penalty equal to their Conviction applied to all Social rolls until the affliction is treated, and are unable to channel Virtues for their actions. If one of the infected subjects botches such a roll, then those individuals the relevant action was addressed to must make simple Compassion tests to resist catching the Icy Heart sickness.
The ennui can be lifted by a Manipulation + Medicine roll at a difficulty of the Abyssal's Essence, or by acting with genuine kindness toward the afflicted, in the form of channelling Compassion to aid him in some way. Failing either of these, a victim will recover three days after the first time he spread the plague.
