Rule by Pettiness
Cost: 5m, 1wp; Mins: Socialize 4, Essence 3; Type: Simple
Keywords: Combo-OK, Social
Duration: Instant
Prerequisite Charms: Imprecation of Ill Manners

The petty differences between people are the greatest source of their own hatreds. Unable to see the truth of Oblivion they snap at each other and betray the nature of their base and low souls. This charm is a dramatic action taking a week to change a social unit during which time the Abyssal must spend time subtly fostering the new attitude in people within that unit. The Abyssal rolls Manipuation or Intelligence + Socialize against a difficulty of the highest MDV in the group + 1/2 Magnitude. Success means that the worst natures of those in it come to the for. Anyone who is part of the group counts as having an MDV 2 higher whenever someone tries to build a positive intimacy in them and an MDV 2 lower whenever someone tries to build a negative intimacy in them. This shift is very subtle. A Perception + Investigation or Socialize roll at the difficulty of the Abyssal's Socialize is required to pick up on the change and once noticed requires 5 Loyalty to break.
