Sound of Suffering (Rank 2)Edit

The spoken mantra for this Gift is Aum-Kama-Rudra. Life is suffering. Among the Stargazers this is not a philosophy, this is fact. Once someone realizes that suffering is the dominating force within the universe, he can move past it onto a fuller, richer life - or so the theory goes. With this Gift, a Stargazer can inflict a temporary "realization of suffering" onto a single individual. The individual affected by this Gift is beset by a sewll of sadness, and they can't help but break down into hitching, wracking sobs. For the duration of this power, the target is left feeling both empty of substance and full of the world's pain. This Gift is taught by both pain and rain-spirits.

This Gift is a Mantra Gift of the Stargazers.


The player spends a single Willpower point and rolls Manipulation + Empathy (difficulty 6). The target is incapacitated for one turn per success rolled as she is afflicted by terrible sorrow and sobbing. The subject may defend if attacked, and she also may take action if circumstances are putting her own life at risk.
