    Tireless Solar Work
    Integrity: 2
    Essence: 1

    The Solar's have much work to do, and yet so little time. The first purchase of this charm, allows the character to go without sleep save for one hour a day. A second purchase at Essence 2 obviates need for sleep at all, save for willpower recovery and doubles the time interval needed for exhaustion. A third purchase at Essence 3 triples the time period, and at Essence 4, the Solar is immune to all possible sources of exhaustion save for magic, whether curse or poison.

      1) Why Athletics? Wouldn’t it fit better in Resistance or Integrity, the abilities for powering through in spite of physical or mental hardship?

      2) Curses tend to be magical; you shouldn’t have to worry about exhaustion from non-magical curses.

        Hmm.... true.

          Yes. The beans are roasted and ground and held in a filter while boiling water is poured through it; the civet is not directly pooping into your cup.
          Right, but Craftsman Needs No Tools (which I pressume would be the pre-req) lets you "cook" food with nothing but your bare hands.

          I don't think it's beyond the realm of Solar Charms to sanitize food without tools.

          (Ooo and Kæstur hákarl. The point is that there are many ways of making food safe to eat.)

              Sensitive perception of the healer
              Essence: 1
              Medicine 2
              Prereqs: Flawless diagnosis technique

              The eyes of the sun burn through all lies, filth, and illusions. The Solar can perceive the ailments, maladies, and properties of the body and life before him, rolling Medicine + Perception, with (Essence) auto-successes

              Difficulty 1: Injury, whether from a broken arm, twisted ankle, or such. Sickness, such as the flu
              Difficulty 3: The first week of pregnancy. More subtle illnesses such as diabetes or cancer
              Difficulty 5: The presence of genes for cystic fibrosis or muscular dystrophy. The propensity for dementia, or the genes for sickle-cell anemia

                Diabetes was actually pretty detectable in the ancient world, provided someone was willing to taste your piss. I definitely wouldn't call it subtle on the same level as the first week of pregnancy.

                ​(Indeed, I'd prefer to move the first week of pregnancy down to difficulty 5+, since even modern medicine seldom detects pregnancy until weeks after the fertilized egg takes root.)

                  Damn it. My lack of medical knowledge strikes again!

                  (seriously though, this is at a glance. You got any good ideas for the difficulty table?)
