Glamour Boon

Changeling: the Lost wrote:Glamour: Not every changeling has access to the reserves of Glamour that drip into the world of mortals from Arcadia. Most changelings have to make do with pacts of Glamour. Between changelings, this is something of a rare boon, for it involves the literal and immediate transfer of Glamour from one changeling to the other when the boon is invoked. Some lieges grant a one-time Glamour boon when they take fealty from a vassal, while others demand a tithe of it from their subjects on a regular basis.

Glamour gained in this way is dependent on the pledge’s specifics. However, no more Glamour than the lowest Wyrd rating of the changelings involved may be transferred at any one time. Alternately, this transfer may happen at intervals, one point of Glamour at a time. This transfer may not happen more often than once a week, and this boon may only transfer a number of points of Glamour equal to the highest Wyrd rating of the changelings involved over the duration of the pledge.


So, I was wondering if Bryce (and everyone else) would be cool with changing the underlined portion to allow the highest Wyrd in Glamour to be transferred via pledge every moon instead of the entire duration. As it is the glamour boon is basically useless between changelings for any significant pledge because not only dose one have to pay the other but they can only pay them a little bit over the entire year/decade/ever.

edit: You could still use multiple pledges to transfer more points in a short time, this would be for transferring more in a long pledge.

As this allows changeling kings to tax their subjects metaphysically, I approve of the idea.

Because it's a disposable boon rather than continuous (like adroitness or a merit), it does make sense.

Sounds like a PK app. Dun DUUUN.

But, Bryce is the ST in that game. He doesn't *need* a PK app.

Or, if we're talking about CdP, Bryce would need an STK app. Which I think involves framing Lucas for violent crime in a state with an active death penalty.

Nah, the murder would need to be legal in the framework of the rules of the game the ST is playing in. Since the ST is a meta-character, this would be the real world. Since Lucas is an American citizen, you'd need to get him executed by the state.

Getting Gene to illegally kill him would just be taking advantage of a rules exploit, not submitting a legal kill application.
