    That charm is pretty good. As for a specific area I was hoping to see? In the excellency there is the line about flattering every desire to keep them coming back for more. Anything along those lines?

      Sweet Reflective Flattery
      Cost: 2m; Mins: Essence 2; Type: Supplemental
      Keywords: Combo-OK, Social
      Duration: Instant
      Prerequisite Charms: Soul-Reflecting Gaze
      Szoreny is seduction given a voice. His words strike his companion’s ears with an easy familiarity that sinks down to her soul. A social attack supplemented with Charm penalizes the targets’ MDV for each Intimacy, Virtue, and Motivation with which it aligns favorably, not just the greatest penalty. If the total penalty imposed by these effects exceed the target’s Integrity, it also becomes an unnatural mental influence.


      Leaves Learn Trust
      Cost: 5m; Mins: Essence 2; Type: Reflexive
      Keywords: Combo-OK, Emotion
      Duration: Instant
      Prerequisite Charms: Silver Crown Necessity
      Like so many autumn leaves, those who rely upon the Agent Advisor would fall without his support. Fortunately, thanks to his sage wisdom, they can be made to see this before it leads to their ruin. This Charm may be activated upon successfully rendering assistance to another character. This assistance might have been immediate, such as organizing or being part of a coordinated attack that defeated a common enemy (the enemy need not have died, so long as he yielded) or something more long-term, such as when the character arrives at a desired destination after being guided or ferried by the Infernal. Whatever the circumstances, the assisted character immediately gains an Intimacy of gratitude toward the Infernal. If she already possessed a positive Intimacy, the Exalt learns its nature and may change it to a Positive Intimacy of trust. Resisting an Intimacy granted by this Charm costs one willpower for each scene the Infernal worked toward the assisted goal, maximum five.

            An altered version of beloved (descendants don't count). He doesn't worry about Reviled characters. Instead, he cares about Beloved and Rival characters, which aren't mutually exclusively.

              "Creation Trembles Footfalls"
              Cost: 3m; Mins: Essence 3; Type: Simple
              Keywords: Obvious
              Duration: One scene
              Prerequisite Charms: Weight-Exaggerating Ego Density

              None is as mighty as Isidoros. Where he treads the very fabric of Creation bends and buckles under his weight. When he wished, all of Creation could be pulled taunt under his hooves and in a single step cross all of Creation.

              This charm adds the Isidorosian's 'Lift'[1] to their movement speed, not as they actually move faster, but as they deform the fabric of Creation around them. To the eyes of most this would appear most strange. The Exalt still moves at the same relativistic speed, but as space warps they appear to move much faster as the surrounding area is drawn towards them. This charm does not aid the Exalt in bypassing hazards or defying gravity with such effects as moving fast enough to walk across water or run along walls.
              ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
              "Lift"[1]
              Isidoros could bear the whole world on his back, were it not too much like work. In the context of the Isidorite Charmset, “Lift” is a value referring to the (Strength + Athletics) total necessary to lift something (by default, the Infernal himself) as a Feat of Strength (Exalted, pp. 127).
              ((Credit to Revlid for the initial 'Lift' concept))

                Nice. I kind of want to make a heretical charm that adds a character's Lift to the lethal or bashing damage they deal with Mind-Hand Manipulation, I'm just not sure how to twist the fluff.

                    Crushing Hell Beast Emanation
                    Cost: 2m; Mins: Essence 2; Type: Simple
                    Keywords: Combo-OK, Horizon
                    Duration: Indefinite
                    Prerequisite Charms: Weight-Exaggerating Ego Dens

                    As one draws upon Isidoros - the air grows hot and heavy. Each step becomes a trial in physical endurance and mental fortitude. Lifting a head leaden with sweat and opening heavy stinging eyes - the beast marches on, as it ever will, undaunted.

                    All that step within the charms effect must make a (str. + athletics) roll at a difficulty of the Infernal's current 'Lift'. For each point of failure, the afflicted suffers an equivalent external penalty. This penalty remains for as long as the individual remains within the area of this effect, equivalent to the Infernal's 'Lift' as per the Horizon keyword.

                    Keyword Concept: Event 'Horizon'
                    Isidoros is a localized threat that challenges the earth below his hooves and the sky upon his back - he is not omnipresent as is the Endless Desert. In the context of the Isidorite Charmset, "Horizon" is a value referring to the radius of the Infernals charms. This value is always equivalent to the Infernal's current 'Lift'.

                      The Insignificant Everyone
                      Cost: -; Mins: Essence 3; Type: Permanent
                      Keywords: -
                      Duration: Indefinite
                      Prerequisite Charms: Unbothered By Flies
                      Once upon the First Age, a great Solar warrior stood in the path of Isidoros and shouted a challenge to him, thinking to taunt the Antarch Stampede into a rage. He was unceremoniously trampled underfoot, not because he succeeded but because he was never even noticed. This charm alters the Infernal's valor rolls: when the Infernal attempts to deny his valor in response to an NPC action such as a taunt, challenge, insult, or other deliberate provocation, he may subtract the difference between his permanent essence and the speaker's from the number of dice he must roll. If this charm reduces the number of dice to zero then the attempt succeeds automatically, as the Infernal does not even notice the jeers of those who are of no significance to him.

                        In honor of a really awesome Kill La Kill episode.

                        Shackle-Cracking Blow
                        Cost: 5m, 1w; Mins: Essence 3; Type: Reflexive
                        Keywords: Touch, Emotion, Obvious
                        Duration: Instant
                        Prerequisite Charms: Foe-Hurling Gore Strike
                        Isidoros dislikes few among his sibling yozis, but he seems at times to take uncommon delight in trampling through the 99,997 spheres of the Principle of Hierarchy, she who labels herself the enemy of free will. Isidoros cares nothing for her scheming; he knows there is no force in existence which can chain the power of a strong will. Occasionally however he chooses to remind the dust motes that dance at his feet that this is so.

                        This charm has no effect against a target unless their motivation has been broken (see Exalted, page 174). As a passive permanent effect, possession of this charm allows a character to discern whether a target has had their motivation broken. Its primary use, however, is to knock some sense into the pitiful wretch. A successful attack supplemented by this charm grants the target 1 point of temporary willpower as well as an Intimacy of awe towards the user. If the target has had their will broken by charms such as Will-Crushing Force, it is considered to have been broken again and the target may choose to regain their original motivation.

                          Unlimited Desires Pursuit
                          Cost: --; Mins: Essence 2; Type: Permanent

                          Prerequisite Charms: First Isidoros Excellency, Indomitable Hedonism Drive

                          The appetites of Isidoros are vast beyond mortal measure. If the Black Boar desires all the world, then he shall have it! This charm enhances the Infernal's intimacies by granting him a number of bonus intimacies equal to his (Conviction + Essence). These intimacies do not need to be chosen when this charm is purchased, but they cannot be filled with any intimacy that is not desirous in nature[1].

                          This charm was invented by one of Isidoros's first Juggernauts rather than the boar himself. While the Antarch Stampede uses it as described, his chosen more frequently use it to expand their emotional capacity to have both desires and more meaningful intimacies with contexts the Boar does not appreciate. An Infernal who possesses desirous intimacies at the time of this charm's purchase can mark those intimacies as being covered by the effects of this charm without needing to lose and reacquire them.

                          ---------------

                          [1] CHARM CONCEPT: DESIRES
                          In the context of the Isidorite Charmset, desires (or desirous intimacies) are those intimacies which express the desire to perform some physical activity toward an existing physical subject – the desire to eat something, the desire to fight someone, the desire to copulate with someone, the desire to sleep somewhere, etc. Isidoros is little-concerned with the abstract, and the context of desires must reflect their material nature - an intimacy with a context of lust (or bloodlust) would be a desire, while an intimacy with a context of love (or hate) would not. A suitable Motivation can also be considered a desire, though an Urge never can.

                            I know that The Demented One made an Isidoros charmset a few years back. Here's a link if you're interested.

                              Good news everyone! I finally found a link to the original set of Revlid's Isidoros charms, including the ones that aren't included in the Google doc like Gluttonous Dark Star Shintai. Knock yourselves out.

                                Cost: 8m; Mins: Essence 3; Type:Simple

                                Prerequisite Charms: Mirror-Hall Misdirection

                                Many become lost when they look upon a mirrored surface, caught looking for a hair out of place or an eyelash upon one's cheek. What when the mirror becomes eyes, a gaze that can't be broken, your own gaze trapped looking for imperfections real and imagined.

                                The Infernal player must have Mirror-Hall images to active this charm. Each mirror-hall image can match up to one target and trap them in the mirror-hold, face and eyes appearing to search, so engaged onlookers often assume the target to be ok if the mirror-hall images did not give it away. That person immediately
                                becomes Inactive until the hold ends. The hold requires an extended temperance roll accruing (Appearance + Investigation) successes to be broken. Characters cannot flurry this miscellaneous action. If a person is attacked while stuck within the Mirror-hold, the fixation is broken.
