The Beauty Purview depicts the transcendent grace and allure of those Gods known for their epic appearance. In addition to divine heights of physical appeal, this Purview is also capable of wielding and reshaping beauty itself as a fundamental force, granting blessings that manifest

their recipient’s inner beauty or stripping away the good looks of foes.

 

Innate Power: Once a scene, you may influence a character using your beauty, appearance, and body language. This includes seduction, but also cutting someone down with a withering glare or using body language to convince a guard you’re not a threat.

 

Draw Back the Mask

 

Duration: Condition

Subject: One character or multiple trivial characters

Roll: Charisma + Perception

Range: Short

Action: Simple

You can bestow blessings that reveal a person’s true beauty, or curses that mar them with

ugliness. Your blessing or curse takes the form of a Condition imposed on one character, or on

all trivial targets within range. Using this Boon on trivial targets is free. (Targets equal level or higher can roll Charisma + Perception to defend)

 

A blessed character may use their beauty once per scene to add successes on any roll made with a Social Attribute. Number of successes = Number of dice added to the target’s roll.

 

A cursed character suffers a negative on all Social rolls where their distorted appearance

is a disadvantage. Number of caster’s successes= Number of successes subtracted from cursed character’s rolls (this can go into the negatives).  This Condition can be resolved by making a sincere and heartfelt apology to someone the target has wronged in a significant way, or with curse-breaking magic.

 

Lasting Impression

 

Duration: Indefinite

Subject: One character or multiple trivial characters

Roll: Appearance + Persuasion

Range: Medium

Action: Simple

You know how to flaunt your looks to kindle an irresistible infatuation. This takes the form of a

Condition that you can impose on either a single target, or on all trivial targets within range. The

Condition raises the target’s Attitude towards you by number of successes rolled, which does not stack with other

magical Attitude bonuses. It can be resolved by enjoying a moment of physical intimacy (e.g.

sex, a passionate kiss, a really good hug) with you, or when you reject the target’s advances.



 

Visage Great and Terrible

 

Duration: One scene

Subject: Self

Roll: Appearance + Intimidation

Action: Reflexive

The line between beauty and monstrosity is drawn by your hand. Your very appearance instills

your enemies with the absolute terror of confronting your divinity. Trivial targets automatically

flee from you, while other characters face a negative equal to the number of your successes on any action that does not somehow help them flee your presence.


 

Cupid’s Arrow

 

Duration: Indefinite

Subject: One character

Roll: Appearance + Empathy

Range: Short

Action: Simple

You breathe inspiration into a character’s heart, granting them additional successes equal to your roll’s successes when they partake in social endeavors with their romantic interest. You can set a single requirement the character must meet to maintain your blessing, like “tithe a tenth of your earnings to my cult” or “spend eight hours a day writing,” which ends this Boon immediately if it is not met. This Boon is free to use on trivial targets. If a requirement is not set, or if your god disapproves of it, the time limit for this blessing is one month. (submit RP and date to admins please.)

 

This can also be used in the opposite manner (cursing them with negative successes equal to your roll’s successes) unless they perform a certain task for you X number of times. In these cases, those of equal or higher level can roll to defend (appearance + empathy). Once the task is performed, the curse breaks.

 

Social endeavors that do not regularly require rolls should be RPed appropriately (as with any power.)


Blurt It Out

 

Duration: One scene

Subject: One character

Clash: Charisma + Insight  vs. Wits + Awareness

Range: Short

Action: Simple

You overwhelm a character with a sudden burst of emotion. They say something without realizing it, unwittingly vocalizing whatever they are thinking. Everyone who hears it gains  +3 on Assess Attitude actions or other Social rolls to understand the utterance’s context for the duration of the Boon.

 

Irresistible Impulse

 

Duration: Condition

Subject: One character

Dice Roll: Manipulation + Persuasion

Range: Medium

Action: Simple

You fill a character’s heart with an emotion of your choice. They gain a Condition based on that

emotion — Mad as Hell, Lovestruck, Too Sad to Function, or something similar. The exact

effect of the Condition may vary based on the chosen emotion, but as a generic effect, the target takes +3 Difficulty when they take an action that the Storyteller deems is directly contrary to the emotion — it’s hard to treat someone politely while Mad as Hell, or to commit to a fist fight

while Lovestruck. Other characters gain +3 on rolls to detect the inflamed emotion. 

 

This power lasts for a number of hours equal to the number of successes rolled. This Condition can be resolved by taking a significant action with the potential for consequences that is motivated by the emotion — starting a bar fight, asking someone out, or skipping work would count. It also ends if the Scion who cast this boon decides to end it.
