A little variety for Dragonblooded Socialise seems to be in order. Any constructive comments or criticism is welcome and I'm sure that people can easily figure out a few creative uses for the below. Some of those might have to be described only over in the Smut Forging area though...

Prerequisite Charms: Brother-Against-Brother Insinuation
Sometimes sly insinuations serve best not by causing direct conflict but, instead, by making something seem laudable in the wrong way. It is amazing how problematic it can be for a matriarch when her loyal descendant ‘realises’ what his feelings for her really are or disruptive for a commander if his loyal second-in-command sudden feels just amused amusement toward him rather than devoted loyalty.
This Charm permanently enhances the capacities of its prerequisite and allows it to create, or alter the context of, a positive Intimacy. Resisting the change of context of an existing, or creation of a new, Intimacy still costs two Willpower, but if the subject has an existing contradictory negative Intimacy then resiting costs only one Willpower. Under normal circumstances the victim will spend the scene reinforcing this new Intimacy if the situation permits and such counts, even afterwards, as a scene spent eroding any old Intimacy and building a new one.
This Charm refers to the updated version of Brother-Against-Brother Insinuation as described in “One Thousand Correct Actions”.

Prerequisite Charms: Warm-Faced Seduction Style
Any child knows that all too often two together are greater than one alone, but those faced by a Dynast who is skilled in this Charm relearns that truth as they find that averting their gaze from one appealing sight leaves them staring directly at another.
This Charm supplements a coordinated social attack which is a seduction or which works primarily through the sex appeal of those making the attack. For purposes of the attack, the Exalt uses ([lowest Appearance of those making the attack]+[number of those making the attack]) as her Appearance if such would be higher than her normal Appearance. If those participating in the attack are blood relatives of the Exalt then they also may also gain the benefits of this Charm if it would raise their effective Appearance.
This Charm may be used to supplement other Abilities.

Prerequisite Charms: Smoothing-Over-the-Past Technique
The bonds of loyalty between those of a sworn Brotherhood are strong, but even they can weaken. Through action or confession though, a Dynasty can rededicate themselves to such causes and perhaps reforge bonds damaged by betrayal. This Charm permanently enhances the Exalt’s capabilities. Whenever the Dynasty performs a two or three dice stunt which supports or benefits another member of their Sworn Brotherhood they may choose to recover two dice spent from their Devotion dicepool in lue of a temporary Willpower reward.
In addition by confessing fully the details of their breeches of loyalty to their full Brotherhood, receiving forgiveness, and spends [original Oathbond rating + number of points lost] days serving the whims of the rest of their Brotherhood in contrition, the Exalt may restore one point of Oathbond which they had lost.
