Magpie's Trick [06/10/12 - 07/10/12]

Post by Founder on Tue Jun 12, 2012 12:55 pm

A mystical effect hangs over the entirety of the Caern of Whispered Oaths (excepting the immediate vicinity of the Challenge Mound) that makes it very difficult to engage in violence. This started on 06/10/12. The mechanical effects are thus:

Any sentient being that wishes to take aggressive action against another sentient being must spend a Willpower Trait to make any single attempt to do so. After spending the Willpower Trait, they must engage in a Social Challenge against the mystical effect (difficulty set by Storyteller). Success allows the character to continue with the single proposed action. When the results of the action are adjudicated as normal, the effect resumes.

If the mystical effect is defeated and an aggressive action is taken, the defender receives an automatic one action reprieve from the effect (with no Willpower or Social Challenge required) that can only be taken against his or her attacker.

For purposes of resisting Magpie's Trick, an aggressive action is any action or Challenge that can result in the destruction, damage, or debilitation of another sentient being or any sentient being's possessions. This includes (but is not limited to) physical attacks, anything that causes a Trait penalty, anything that bestows Negative Traits, or anything that mystically exposes weaknesses.

Any being subject to berserk (or similar) frenzy must test against stimuli normally. If the test is failed, the Thrall of the Wyrm must be tested against as normal. Barring being subject to the Thrall (which will be followed up on by a Storyteller), a failed or successful test against berserk frenzy results only in a visible (face and posture) display of anger -- frenzy does not occur. Note: Fox frenzy can occur as normal.

Any questions about this should be directed privately to the Storytelling staff.

The Trick ends on 07/10/12.

The magpie-spirits who reside in the caern will add to the local gossip that the Challenge Mound is exempted from Magpie's Trick, per the request of a denizen of the sept.
