    No. Murder, especially calculated is always Breaking Point. Theoretical Assassin could try to negate brunt of emotional stress by meditating before the hit and attending to therapy after payday but it would still be a breaking point.

        Fan Court Contract

        Touch of Shaper (Common, Court)

        Shaper Court, Court of Artisans and Visionaries prides itself as both explorers and inventors. No creation is more priced by Shapers than one created by inspired crafter and this Contract lets its user enjoy the benefits of inspiration.
        Action: Instant
        Cost: 1 Glamour + 1 Willpower
        Dice Pool: Resolve+Empathy+Mantle -Clarity (yes, it's easier to use when you are bit out of it.)

        Roll Results:
        Dramatic Failure: Changeling's attempt to reconnect with their inner muse fails miserably and their inspiration seeking focus turns toxic. Changeling gains Obsessed condition relating to seeing through creation of what they intended to build.
        Failure: No effect. Changeling must wait until next sunset or sunrise to try again.
        Success: Next Crafts/Computer roll Changeling makes to build/program something benefits from same bonus as if Changeling just cashed in an Inspired condition.
        Exceptional Success: As with success but roll also benefits from 8-again. In addition Changeling refills their Willpower as if they had fulfilled their Virtue.

        Loophole: Changeling intends to build their creation for a competition where it would be compared to similar works.

          Nah, more like Samurai disturbed and troubled by the distance between their Buddhist and Shinto beliefs and all the death they deal.

              I'm not so sure those two concepts are at odds. Look at what Michael does before the collateral damage killings to get to his target. He was praying. Then he looks at a locket presumably at the picture of a loved one lost. But we assume they are dead, it could be they left him. We don't get too big an idea but these are likely two poles in his life.

              Perhaps a similar ritual would be in order for the loop hole. Spending 5 minutes in prayer and/or meditation then meditation on a object that connects you to earth?

                Nah, I like the current loophole. Let the Changeling deal with the emotional fallout themselves.

                    Got another concept for a Contract a character of mine forged. Thinking about calling it something like "Hacker's Script" or the like. He can imbue a Contract or other fae power into a machine, letting it activate under predetermined condition, like "Activate Touch of the Workman's Wrath on this gun if someone tries to shoot me with it." Or maybe other stuff like, "Send this email if and when the Summer soldier breaks his pledge to me."

                      Something like making a Pledge/Oath/Sealing with the object itself?

                        Not sure if this counts as homebrew, but if I wanted to update Discreet Conjuration, what Regalia would it fall under? A lot of its uses sound like Royal Mirrors, but then there's the part I love the most where you can just magically pull a small pistol or switchblade from your pocket, which sounds like Swords. Maybe making it a Goblin Contract could let it do both, but I'm not sure

                          I mean, it already exists as a more versatile Royal Crown Contract.

                            Wait, it does? Ok, one more reason I'm mad I missed the kickstarter.

                              I know there was/is a after kickstarter thing where you can throw 20$~ for the early pdf. I missed the kickstarter too.

                              Now my actual reply to the topic:

                              Bottle Glamour
                              Cost: 1 glamour
                              Dice pool: None; Strength + Brawl + Wyrd vs Stamina + Wyrd
                              Action: Instant; Contested
                              Duration: Permanent

                              Effect: After spending the activation cost you may drain your or a willing creature's glamour into a container.
                              If the creature is unwilling you may attempt a contested action and if successful drain a number of glamour equal to your wyrd.
                              If you fail the ability fails to Manifest
                              If you dramatically fail the power backfires and they instead drain you of glamour equal to their Wyrd.
                              Loophole: The changeling prepares the vessel by swearing a pledge upon the item.

                              With the rules of breathing new goblin contracts being basically goblins selling their abilities to changelings I thought this could be a useful ability to a changeling.
