Publican (••••, Lacrima •••)Edit

Requires Charge
Action: Extended, 10 minutes/roll, threshold = Sanctuary
Dice pool: Intelligence + Politics
Cost: (Rating of Sanctuary + 1) Wisps, Sensitivity check at +2
Duration: indefinite

The Noble has a commission to collect the tax of hope rightfully owed to Alhambra from a territory in the Rebellious Provinces. The Charm affects an area, which the Noble must walk through and study carefully to activate the Charm.

When she reaches the threshold, the area gains the Tax-Farmed Condition, making it possible for her to extract Wisps from it. The activation dice pool is modified if the target area is Tainted or Blessed: each dot of a Tainted area’s Severity gives a -1 penalty, each dot of a Blessed area’s Beauty gives a +1 bonus.



Modified by Sympathy
Cost: +1 Wisp

After the Noble has created the Tax-Farmed Condition, she may draw Wisps from the target area without visiting it, applying the Sympathy modifier to her dice pool. She must still be in an area to activate the Charm on it and create the Condition there.


Requires Seed of Light with Bereaved
Cost: +1 Willpower

After the Noble has created the Tax-Farmed Condition, she may convert the Wisps drawn from the target area directly into Seeds, instead of adding them to the Noble's pool.
