Pretender Denial Method
Cost: 10m, 1wp; Mins: Bureaucracy 5, Essence 3; Type: Simple
Keywords: Mandate, Combo-Basic, Mirror(False King's Weakness)
Duration: Indefinite
Prerequisite Charms: Foul Air of Argument Technique

It is to the Solar Exalted that the Unconquered Sun granted the Mandate of Heaven so that they might rule and so should other try to organize and run things they go against the order of Creation. A Solar goes to the main base of his opponents organization and makes the same mudra that the Unconquered Sun did to grant his Chosen their dominion. In so doing the world turns away from the pretender. The Solar rolls Intelligence + Bureaucracy + Influence in a dramatic action to take away their rulership. This may be opposed by those in power. Success means that until the Solar releases the motes the affected target is reduced to Backing of 0 in that organization and can no longer count as a Savant, Sorcerer or Legitimate Sorcerer for Mandate actions and rules. They can still accomplish things by personally appealing to the new leadership but must work through others. This charm can not be used against other Solar Exalted and it is rumored that even trying so angers the Gods.

The difficulty of this roll is 1, but subtract an external penalty of the target's (Manipulation + Socialize)/2 from the successes on the Bureaucracy roll. On a success the Solar intuitively understands what price they would want for a service or something they possess. Alternatively the Solar can name a price or service and will understand what the target would give for that. If the Solar meets the price the target is compelled to accept the offer. This compusion is a form of Unnatural Mental Influence costing 3 willpower to resist.

The effects of this charm become Obvious anytime an organization has more than 2 points of assets supported by this charm. This charm fails to work if the asset would be at 0.
