Hymn to Orpheus (•••, Legno ••)Edit

Action: Instant and resisted
Dice pool: Presence + Expression - targets’ Composure
Cost: 2 Wisps
Duration: concentration

In the myths, the songs of Orpheus were so beautiful that all the natural world came to hear them. The Noble can, in a small way, emulate him. When she has a natural animal within sight, she sings or plays music pleasing to it, and all the animals of the same species who hear the song gather together to listen. The Charm ensures that the music can be heard anywhere within 100 times her successes in yards; natural acoustics may carry the song further, at the Storyteller’s discretion. (Note that while only animals of the same kind as the target are certain to come, anyone and anything with ears can follow the music if they like.) Once they arrive, the summoned animals will stand or lie near the Noble, quietly listening, as long as she performs; when she stops, the Charm ends and the beasts revert to their normal behavior in the following turn.



Requires Legno •••
Modified by Sympathy

The Noble may perform for an animal that is not within sight, provided she knows it well. Apply the Sympathy modifier to the chosen target; animals of that species will come to hear her.
