Wuxing (Rank 2)Edit

There is a mystical resonance - wuxing - that exists between the elements of water, fire, earth, metal and wood. These elements are the basic forces underlying everything in the world, and the resonance between them is something that a Stargazer with this Gift can hear and tap into. The Stargazer can take the reverberation between elements and tweak it temporarily; the result is, for a short time, that one element can be changed into the other. This Gift may only be taught by an avatar of Chimera.


The player rolls Manipulation + Enigmas (difficulty 7, or 9 to affect particularly hard or rare metals). Each success allows for one square foot of a particular element (water, earth, fire, metal or wood) to be changed into an alternate type of the same group of elements. Fire may become wood, water may become earth, and so on. The dimension of the element doesn't change - a fire in the fireplace still retains its "shape," but may now be made of wood, earth, or even water (water doesn't change the shape either; it actually retains the same shape, but is simply liquid held fast to a specific contour). The effect lasts for a number of turns equal to the character's permanent Gnosis score.
