    Here are some Effects and Rotes for the Minor Sphere of Pleasure and Pain :

    That First Taste, level 2 Effect - This Effect makes the first instance when a person tries a new pleasant or painful ( or both ) experience or sensation more intense. This does not change the person's disposition to the experience - if a person being whipped feels only pain because of it, then this Effect will just make the experience more painful. Depending on the number of successes, this first instance can be made more intense only slightly, or it could be an night-impossible-to-repeat ( except after a great amount of time and practice ) experience.

    Remove Inhibitions, level 3 Effect - This Effect subdues any hesitation and doubts that a person might have about indulging in a pleasure or a pain ( or both ) . The activity itself is not affected ; only the willingness to participate. This Effect can be cast while a person is participating or undergoing an activity, to suppress any ongoing inhibitions.

    Reverse Keepsake, level 4 Rote - this Rote alters small vanity or keepsake items in such a way so that they will instill the opposite of emotions that they instill currently. While casting this Rote, the Mage becomes vaguely aware of what changes need to happen for the item to inspire the opposite emotions that it does currently ; but she ( or he ) doesn't know exactly what emotions are instilled, or why or how. Thus this Rote cannot be reliably used to find facts about the feelings and thoughts of the owner of an item, but it can provide leads and clues in regard to this.

    The alterations made to the item can by any that could be common elements and properties of an item. Thus, an item cannot be altered in any way that makes it clearly appeared to be changed after it was created ; nor can elements that are distinctly uncommon - like paint on a photograph, or a glass cover of a book - be added. The color and texture of the material(s) an item is made can be changed, as can the shape. A material can be changed to another one commonly used. The content of the item - like what is on a picture or a photograph can be altered.

    This Rote is usually easier to use when it is directed from pain to pleasure. Making a keepsake or vanity item that induces pain is difficult in regard to most persons.
    The item that is changed by this Rote must be one that inspires clearly positive or negative emotions and thoughts. This Rote cannot be used for items that are public property, shared between different persons, or are put out on display.

    Know The Denial, level 1 Rote - This Rote allows the Mage to ascertain if an item is associated with denied pleasure or pain ( or both ) , and provides some information in regard to the circumstances in which pleasure or pain ( or both ) were denied. For example: A book that is being put off from being read, psychoactive substance paraphernalia that hasn't touched drugs, a barely read letter from a lover or a friend marking another point in a torturous relation, a painful piercing that hasn't been used at all.

      I wrote up two more Effects for the Minor Sphere of Pleasure and Pain :

      Recall Sensation, level 3 Effect - this Effect allows a person to directly and recall and experience again moments of pleasure or pain ( and of pleasure and pain ) . This Effect includes emotions, mindset, sensory experiences, as well as sensations more related to the physical body. With four or more successes the casting Mage can precisely choose the focus of this Effect ; otherwise control over this part of the Effect is indistinct, weak, and very limited.

      Opposites Are Alike And Do Attract, level 5 Effect - This Effect influences a person ( or a group of persons ) or a situation so that what will be happening and the outcomes will be tiled towards pleasure and pain being experienced by the persons present. Both the emotions and reasoning of the persons involved are influenced ; and both important and minor events are changed and tilted. This Effect does not include the casting Mage in it's results, but other Mages are affected. For this Effect to be successful to any extent, some pleasure or pain ( or pleasure and pain ) should be already be be happening ; or at least there should be some circumstances, potential, and conditions for them. This Effect is directed towards achieving a 50/50 division between pleasure and pain in some honestly comparable sense. This could be in the amount of pleasure and pain happening, the amount of time or instances pleasure and pain each happen, or the quality - whether more subjective or more objective - of the sensations of pleasure and pain as experienced by the persons involved.

        Two more Effects for the Minor Sphere of Pleasure and Pain :

        Another Try, Another Go, level 3 Effect this influences a person to continue with an activity or sensation she ( or he ) just experienced.

        You Wouldn't Expect, level 2 Effect – this makes an activity not undertaken for the sole purpose of pleasure more pleasant. For example : tidying a room, searching for a book in library, preparing a dinner, taking a bath.

          Here are three more Effects for the Minor Sphere of Pleasure and Pain :

          Assure Bliss, level 3 Effect

          Makes the target person assured that a particular pleasant experience in the future. This usually results in the person thinking about reasons for this, but does not have to. The caster can decide whether this notion is tilted towards some defined amount of time passing. This does not change the experience, but can do so indirectly through influencing attitude towards it

          Assure Pain, level 3 Effect
          Make the target person assured that the she will experience again a particular painful experience at some point in the future. This usually results in the person thinking about reasons for this, but does not have to. The caster can decide whether this notion is tilted towards some defined amount of time passing. This does not change the experience, but can do so indirectly through influencing attitude towards it

          Glimpse Frailty, level 2 Effect
          This Effect divines obstacles and failings , both ones that happened and ones that are possible ( the caster can decide on which to focus ) , in regard to a particular activity or experience undertaken willingly for pleasure or pain ( or for both pleasure and pain ) . The frailties ascertained using this Effect do not have to be ones that the person on who this Effect is used is aware of. The frailties that can be divined include ( among others ) : a person having insufficient skill, a deficient attitude, disagreements with friends and lovers, limitations of time, insufficient knowledge, or limited resources.


          This Effect does not look in the future for events that will happen. Rather, it grants knowledge in regard to the current state of a particular pleasure of pain, and the facts, possibilities, and obstacles in regard to it.
          The Mage can use this in regard to herself ( or himself ) if she thinks that knowledge gained in this way will be useful or interesting
          .
