Harp of Fortune
Long Term Nimbus: Those around Edward find their luck magnifying, some for good, some for ill.
Immediate Nimbus: Those who witness Edward's spellcasting hear the strum of some immense harp strike a note that reverberates the magic of his spell into the Fallen World.
Signature Nimbus: Those who sense the remnants of his magic hear the faint after-resonance of the strummed harp strings.
Harp of Fate
Effects: The sudden tone of Fate's strings strummed like a harp reverberates through those nearby, granting courage and the sense that things will turn out as they're meant to. Those affected by the Tilt gain a +1 bonus to Resolve checks.
Cause: Being in Edward's vicinity when he casts a spell, and having a Resolve lower than the nimbus' Power.
End: End of scene

  • Gold Eyed Folk: Requirements: Fate •
    • You see them sometimes. You were but a child when you first saw her, a merry lady of the middle class, her hair pinned back with shiny baubles, a smile on her happy face. When she looked at you, her dark brown eyes flashed for an instant – just for a moment! – and you saw the golden eyes she hid beneath them.
    • You've encountered them a time or two since, but more so since you're Awakening. Not even a full dozen times, but enough to know that they're out there. They all seem merry and perhaps a little madcap, almost with a joy too effusive to belong in this world.
    • Oh, and one other thing. After your Awakening, you realized that you were one of them.
    • Since you Awakened, you're sure of it. Only they seem to know something you don't. More than that, they seem to talk about you to one another…and to other people. Folk just seem to almost know you, purely by accident, like you're a famous person whose face they can't quite place. Even if they never figure it out (it's on the tip of their tongue, surely!), they still treat you well.
    • One thing is for certain. You know they're watching you, and they're wandering about you. And they're circling you and those you love, getting closer and closer. The day is coming when they will come to speak with you, and you somehow know that if you don't know more about them when that happens, they shall have the upper hand in your dealings.
    • Something tells you that is the last thing you want.
    • For You To Do: Describe the first time someone treated you as a famous person, even if they couldn't quite figure out what they knew you from.
    • Traits: Gain the Striking Looks (•) Merit. Though others cannot directly see the gleaming gold eyes that you perceive for yourself in the mirror, they certainly react to them, in a way they never reacted to you before. You may increase this with Experiences if you wish. When someone notices your golden eyes, you gain the Wanton Condition.
