Aiden Comic #208 *warning: head-whammy*

Who could travel much faster than light,
She went out one day,
In a relative way,
And came back the previous night."

Amusing... and yes... Aiden is SO very much earning his rank of Anatthema! :twisted:

Aiden needs to encounter Lyta and head whammy her as well... :twisted:

Karma's a bitch aint it? I'll bring the beer and popcorn when he does go down.
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Of course, this is coming from the Oversexed Tyrant who makes little purplesids gay.
Do not confuse the inexcusable for the unforgivable. If a crime can be excused, then there was nothing to forgive in the first place. It is only when a crime is inexcusable that forgiveness is even an issue. And at that point, forgive. Forgive, if only because it sets you free. Bitterness never produced anything sweet.

More like the tiniest purplesid you can imagine. But Seras didn't use Charms to put a Head Whammy on Epiphany--she can't spend essence without triggering her anima. Epiphany's "conversion" was all natural.

What the heck did you THINK Sera's social combo is? ^_-

"Holy Sunlit Lesbo Waves!"

How is THAT not a combo name?

Seras doesn't have a social combo. She has a big dice pool and persistance. If someone spends the 2 wp to fend off one successful advance, she just stunt-changes the tactic.

Granted, this is considerably harder under 2e. So, this time around she does stuff to make them sloowly forge and intimacy to her, and then gets 'em when they're good 'n' ready.

Which is a far more natural and far less horrible-to-consider approach, rather than carving their psyche into a shape more pleasing to you via essence, ala Aiden and his Solar social charms.

The social charms aren't innately bad; Adien's just an asshole, IMO.

Most likely, but even still... there are solar charms that can instantly make someone devoted to you, give them an order they can't refuse, seduce or awe them regardless of preferences or prior attachments, turn someone into a slavish servant for [charisma] days...
While they need not necissarily be used for more unpleasant ends... these things are a little creepy to consider.

And there are social charms for other Exalts (and creatures) that do similar things. Sidereal and even DB social (ususally againt mortals) is pretty nasty if you want to be as well as Fair Folk. My point was the Solar (or any) social charms aren't innately wrong, its how you chose to employ them. The power of Solar social charms has been somewhat cut back in 2ed even since they're are more hard rules for how they can be resisted and what they do. Many of them are less binary than they were. That Immaculate should have dipped a little deeper into social defense trees. :)

Oh, certainly there are many in exalted with the power to manipulate people that intensely. And I agree, social charms are not inherently bad, you can use hypnotic tongue technique to get someone to lower their weapon and discuss things with you peaceably (for example).
But really think about what these charms are doing, noteably to the minds of others. Then stop and look at the title of the charms: "Worshipful Lackey Acquisition" and "Husband-Seducing Demon Dance" and think about what social charms (and solar social charms in this case) really do to people.

See, that is part of what I'm saying. You seem to be focusing really intently on the Solar charms. The others are just as "bad" or just as "good" as the person that employs them. They do specific things and can be abused. What exactly some of them depends on if they are considered Natrual or Unnatural mental influence.

Actually, I'm only making reference to solar charms because that's what's relevant at the moment (Aiden and all). But yes, almost every type of supernatural in Exalted can rape the mind.

And even if for a nicer reason, a character is still using mastery of essence to bend someone elses mind to their own will. It may be justified, or not always an issue, but at it's core... that's what it's doing.
