Shout out to my LARPers.

Advanced Presence

The force of your personality makes even the most stalwart tremble. When you exert your Majesty, heads bow, hearts break and spines quiver. None would dare to challenge you or risk your ire, for your ambiance is without peer.

By expending a Willpower Trait, you exert your Majesty for the duration of a scene or for a full hour. You can represent this power's effect by holding your arms out from your sides, or with a special card or ribbon. As long as you have Majesty, nobody may insult you or attack you as long as they are within 10 feet of you and able to see you. A subject may break through your Majesty by making a Social Challenge against you, but must spend a Willpower Trait to make the attempt. Failure means that the subject cannot challenge your Majesty again in the same scene.

If you attack someone or undertake hostile action while using your Majesty, the aura fades automatically and immediately as your onlookers are startled or outraged. You may still use your Social and Mental Disciplines as long as they do not inflict direct harm--you may still Entrance or Dominate a subject--but a deliberate attack disrupts your Majesty.

When attempting to penetrate Majesty, a Willpower Trait may be used for a retest. This is an exception to the normal rule that Willpower is used only to defend against Mental and Social challenges.

*flips through player's handbook*

...Checks out. Confirm with the DM a player cannot invoke "Duo-Majesty" by virtue of third-party supplements.

I <3 you. Sadly, when I see someone with their arms out like that, Majesty is still one of the first things to come to mind. Much the same with the obfuscation arms cross over the torso. I is lame.

Sweetheart, no woman is so hot that making her a gamer wouldn't make her hotter.

I know I'm totally late (and new!) to the party, but this and a lot of your other posts make me -so- happy I went to Writercon and friended you! ^_^
