Magic Monday – A utilitarian charm for certain professions

Charm of the Quiet Brother

Commonly used by those who wish to avoid notice, this charm is nothing more than a small sack of mouse-hide filled with powdered mouse-bones. If worn or carried, it helps make the one it protects “as quiet as a mouse.” It should not be relied upon to hide from magicians, though: chanting Sight from Darkness will reveal the charm’s magic, automatically exposing the one who uses it.

The creation of this charm takes a night’s work, a Ritual check of base difficulty d8, and costs six strain. It keeps its potency until the next equinox, or until broken. Carrying it gives a +2 bonus to stealth-related rolls. This bonus can be increased (at the time of the charm’s creation) by taking another point of strain, and raising the difficulty by one step, for each additional +1 of bonus.

About Confanity

I love the written word more than anything else I've had the chance to work with. I'm back in the States from Japan for grad school, but still studying Japanese with the hope of becoming a translator -- or writer, or even teacher -- as long as it's something language-related.
