Ephemeral Attunement

  • Power Rating: 2
  • Symbols: A spirit's Bane, Moon
  • Sample Rite: The ritemaster begins by appeasing the relevant umia by producing a Bane that plagues one of their number under the sight of the moon. They must inflict some level of damage on themselves with the Bane, and destroy it. When the type of Bane or material of the Bane allows, the ritemaster may break it, and inflict the damage with the sharpened fragment edge. (Stamina + Occult)
  • Success: Raises an Influence that the ritemaster has access to by 1, to no more than a maximum of 5. It cannot be applied to more than one Influence at a time. If a second iteration is attempted before the expiration of the first, the first immediately ends, regardless of whether the second attempt was successful.
  • Action: Extended (20 successes, roll per minute)
  • Duration: Until the next phase of the moon.
