6m 1WP, Indefinite
The exalt draws the battlefield and all units into the dirt or sand, and in doing so codifies the rules of the game. Any battlegroup or individual combatant he can see, draws and who is on the ground (or a mount that is) becames known to the exalt in great detail. He becomes fully aware of the strength of their bravery and loyalty, their weapons and ammunition stocks, standing orders and most practiced tactics. Upon completion of the drawing, the exalt may make a Wits+War roll with automatic successes equal to his essence to detect and reveal any battlegroups or combatants concealed or hidden within the drawn battlefield. Such units will be added to the drawn gameboard automatically. He and any unit he commands cannot be surprised by mundane means by any battlegroups or combatants drawn onto the game board for the duration of the charm. Individual combatants may still use any stealth magic they might have access to after they are drawn onto the board.
The drawn game board will endure mundane weather effects, but magical erosion or any deliberate attempt to stomp it out by a sentient being automatically destroys the drawing and ends the charm prematurely.
