Close Your Eyes And Look
Cost: 4m; Mins: Martial Arts 3, Essence 2; Type: Reflexive (Step 1)
Prerequisite Charms: Death Between Heartbeats
This Charm supplements an unarmed Martial Arts attack. It doubles all DV penalties the target is currently suffering from for the purposes of resolving that attack.
Additionally, for the briefest moment, the character sees phantom trails of Essence hanging in the air around her foe and may trace their sources. The martial artist’s player may ask the Storyteller a single effect-related question about her foe—regarding his Charms, enchanted weaponry, divine blessings, general defensive skill and so on—to which the Storyteller must supply an honest, if vague, response. Questions such as, “Is he using any soak Charms?”, “Why are those arrows glowing?” and “Is it even possible for me to hit this guy?” are appropriate. Inappropriate queries involve specific numbers, odds calculation or relative values.
Close Your Eyes and Look may be used only once per action
