    replied to Imperfect Circles
    Perfect circles are mostly rooted in a "complete the set" mindset, and have some minor good luck associations in the same way "lucky 7" is.

    In 2E Prayer Rolls have a difficulty of 7-(Resource Value of the Sacrifice). Prayer papers have a resource cost and are meant to serve as sacrifices to reduce the difficulty.

    Absent stunting or other magic, no. Att 5 Abil 5 is still within the scope of what normal mortal humans can accomplish. Charms can be better understood to allow a story or solution rather than to be a solution in and of themselves. A normal person would take years to change the attitude of a country, taking advantage of existing trends, building networks, etc. With social charms they can do that far more quickly, but they do not have a chat with a janitor in a broom closet and walk out to find the king waiting outside to offer them the crown.

    Stunting does something similar, but usually...
