Tempered of Golden Light
Cost: 2m; Mins: Craft 4, Essence 3; Type: Reflexive Keywords: Combo-OK, Obvious Duration: One Turn Prerequisite Charms: Durability Enhancing Technique
Sometimes a Lawgiver just needs a wall or a sword or a rope to hold just a little bit longer and so they make it so. Strengthened by essence and the eternal power of the sun the object holds. The object can still be damaged and attacked but it will not break until after the Solar stops spending motes into this charm. This charm can be reflexively maintained each round after the first by paying the cost again. Though an object can be maintained with this charm and function generally it is not necessarily completely whole. A bridge will not collapse while this charm holds but it may have holes or be cracked and uneven. This does not take up the character's charm use for the turn.

In thaumaturgy there are endless combinations of things one can mix and combine. Most of the time this does nothing and the charms of the Exalted are superior and faster. This is much like a form of thaumaturgy. Specific recipes and combinations that one can use to create minor tricks and treats and effects.
Seems very pricey for what it does. It doesn't seem that super powerful on small-scale items, and at 5m per turn, it'll drain you mighty quick. Perhaps either drop the cost, or make the cost pro-rated based on either user's Essence, or size of the item? Perhaps give a guideline on size vs. mote cost, for the storyteller, such as "Small items, such as swords, are easiest to hold together, at only 1m per turn. Larger items cost more, with things such as small cottages at 3m per turn, bridges at 5m per turn, and the walls of White Wall at 7m per turn." Just some ideas, as 5m per round is a fortune in many ways. -- GreenLantern
- Would that be more likeable? -BogMod
- Much - It seems like something you could do long enough for it to really matter, and you can get away with a lot more without going super-glowy too quickly. Especially since it comes as a second-tier charm, I think the new cost is far more reasonable. -- GL
